Google is taking over Kansas!

From CNN:

"At 79, Bill Bunten doesn't exactly understand the Internet boom. The Topeka, Kansas, mayor has an e-mail account, he said, but his assistants take care of most of his online communications and tend to search the Web for him.

...

In a formal proclamation Monday, Bunten announced his city will be known as "Google" -- Google, Kansas. ...
"

Cute

w0w! I grew up in Boulder and had a cabin on Ptarmigan Ridge (look over your shoulder to the east from Keystone). nothing like embarrassing the home team. when you get a notice that it is an old thread, it's an OLD thread
