    As I recall the first person to complete the Northwest Passage was Roald Amundsen, who navigated it from 1903-06, and if I remember correctly, he finished the last leg by dog sled. His was also the first group to reach the South Pole, and he was the first person to fly over the North Pole. Just had to mention it. Norway’s forever number one national hero.

    Tony, if it wasn’t for you putting these newspaper articles in front of our faces we would never know these things, and democrats would ever be in charge.

    McClure was, clearly, a science denier.
