Essential Estrogen: Resurrected For You And For Me

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

It is alive! Those who were around Iowa in 2004 may remember the First in the Nation web site put together by the Iowa Department of Economic Development: Yup, someone took the old girl into the back room, fluffed up her dress, applied some new war paint and sent her back out to the greeting line. This morning Gov. Chet Culver's office announced the launch of the site, now dubbed "Iowa Caucus 2008: First in the Nation." It will once again serve as a statewide, non-partisan resource for news media, campaign staff and the public on the caucus, Iowa quality of life and something called "Iowa's new economy." Iowa ranks 'first in the nation' in the production of ethanol, E-85 and biodiesel fuels, and is third in wind energy production. The state was also ranked first by Forbes Magazine in overall quality of life. "The Iowa Caucuses give us an opportunity to showcase the state's strengths on a world stage," Culver said in a released statement.
