10 Lessons Gleaned from President Obama's Visit to Alaska (So Far)

1. Being leader of the free world is a complete and total 24/7 shit show.

2. Snow City Cafe is about to get a whole lot more popular, if that's even
possible, and will likely make the "Obamlette" a permanent menu item.

3. Secret Service dudes are hot without even trying. 

4. Most people will put getting a selfie with the President far--FAR--above their dignity.

5. Everyone in the state (myself included, natch) somehow and for no real reason feels entitled to a private audience with the President.

6. According to pictures, a full grown man can stand up in Air Force One without bumping his head. I don't know why this came as a surprise to me, but it did.

7. There is a seemingly endless capacity for one's Twitter and Facebook feed to be full of information about President Obama's Visit to Alaska.

8. More people outside Alaska have heard of Dillingham and Kotzebue in the past 48 hours than in the past 48 years.

9. A "live blog" of every moment of a Presidential visit to your state is just about as interesting as it sounds.

10. Everyone kinda wants to take Obama hiking and fishing. Why does Bear Grylls of all people get to do it? Come on, White House. Really?
