News From The Alaska Department Of Redundancy Department

I thought this article about how the State of Alaska is handling an employee's request for a replacement ball cap was pretty funny.   Enjoy!

Here is the link to the Alaska Dispatch article:


  1. Love your new header. -

    Oh my, only in the government could this go on...I have an idea, if she goes ahead and gets a new hat of her choice and has the proper patch put on, I guarantee that it won't be long until the hat issue is addressed. I am just shaking my head about this. xo

  2. Leave it to government to make things difficult and a mess! If it were me, I would cut the logo par off (with a little around the edges to turn under) and applique it onto a hat of my choosing. And then DARE the officials to take away my cap!

  3. Oh yes, and the new header photo is scrumptious!

  4. Thanks for the thumbs up on the new header!


I love to receive comments - please tell me what you think!
