OK, not really. But while VP candidate Sarah Palin was mayor of Wasilla from 1996 to 2002, the area (specifically the Matanuska-Susitna area) won the title of Meth Capital of Alaska. (An aside: check out the SLOG today to see Palin get ripped to shreds, you know, if that's your thing.) We recommend you read this article out about the tweakiest city in Alaska during '02-'03, which features kids going hungry, the authorities doing very little, and one 13-year-old Wasilla boy bragging to the fuzz that his "mom cooked the best meth in the valley." Lucky bastard. (Juneau Empire)
