Wasilla is the crystal meth capital of Alaska. Wasilla is a small town with a population just under 8,000 in 2010, in other parts of the world such a small community could be called a village. Still Wasilla has no qualities that would make one nostalgic for small towns. Wasilla is the hometown of Sarah Palin, who started her career in electoral politics running for town offices. Good job, geniuses, the world thanks you for that.
