Title: Sarah Palin Autographs Prosthetic Leg
Post by: bekahroo on October 17, 2008, 04:41:55 PM
Hello all,

I meant to register a while back, when I was having my new prosthesis made.  I never got around to it, but I thought my fellow amputees might be really interested in my story of meeting Gov. Palin, and how she autographed my foot.

I'm living in Virginia, but I sent a letter and photos (and video link) to The Frontiersman, Gov. Palin's hometown paper in Wasilla, AK.  I never heard anything back and thought they weren't interested, until a woman from Alaska tipped me off that it had been in her morning paper today.

Here's a link:

Jay Grelen of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (AR is my home state) is also running a story about it in his front page column, Sweet Tea.
