I know this is a strange question, but on 11-22-05 (I am reading through your entire archives, having just discovered your blog a few weeks ago and realizing immediately what a fabulous resource it is) you mentioned Winnemucca, and I'm curious if you know of Winnemucca, Nevada. I live nearby and my husband was born there and it's just so very seldom we Nevadans hear any mention of any city in our state besides Las Vegas that it caught my eye.
Thanks for your blog. Not only is it full of great information, your wit and snark are just a joy to read.
Oh Miss Snark basks in admiration. Too much more of this and she's going need her hats expanded.
As to Winnemucca, who has NOT heard of it? For starters it's just such a great name to say out loud (Win A Muck A) and it's the very epitome of "not the end of the world but you can see it from here" kind of town. Miss Snark loves those kinds of places. She doesn't go there of course, cause that would involve actually leaving New York City, but she's fond of them none the less.
