We in Anchorage, Alaska are in mourning. Why, you ask? Because Scrooge came to town and gave the ax to Snowzilla. The city decided that the 16 foot tall snowman the Powers family builds each Christmas is a danger to society, and they have given him a cease and desist order to not build him this year. Apparently it interrupts the traffic on their residential street. It's a sad, sad day when you can get arrested for building a snowman. I say we all build snowmen so that they can picket city hall. But for now, take off your hats and fly the flags at half mast. Snowzilla...may he rest in peace.
