“Whale Legs, Big Alaskan Cities and 14 Seconds of Work”

The first whales had legs and swam by wiggling their feet.  Over millions of years, those legs evolved into flippers.

The four American cities with the biggest land area are all in Alaska:  Sitka, Juneau, Wrangell, and Anchorage.  Jacksonville, Florida is fifth.

Ellen Burstyn (BURST-en) got an Emmy nomination in 2006 for Best Supporting Actress in the HBO miniseries Mrs. Harris . . . even though she was only on screen for 14 seconds, and had two lines. She lost, but the Emmys still added a rule the next year that anyone who was nominated for supporting actor or actress had to be on screen at least 5% of the time.
