Downtown Talkeetna, ALASKA is an official National Historic Site full of  commercial buildings dating from the early 1900s. These include Nagley’s General Store where Mayor Stubbs (a yellow tomcat!) receives visitors.

Lots of people feel that the TV show Northern Exposure was based in Talkeetna and its local radio station and bush pilots, but I was surprised to learn that the show was filmed in Washington State.

I’m not so surprised that a cat has been mayor for 15 years and that in Japan on a Tokyo island, dolphins are registered human citizens. See it all here, with an accompanying video:

Animals Are People Too – Disgusted With Humans, Voters Write In Cat for Mayor, Register Dolphins as Human.
