Today in Tommy Norment's Voice Mail: Oct. 18 edition
As reporters, we have to listen to a lot of people's voice mail messages.
But there is one Virginia politician whose voice mail greeting is so routinely educational and amusing that listening to it can be a pleasure.
In fact, we so enjoy hearing Sen. Tommy Norment's voice-mail messages that we sometimes call Norment (R-James City) when we expect he won't be around. Just to hear a historical fact of the day, delivered in that unmistakable Norment cadence.
We've decided we should share the fun. And so today, we introduce an occasional feature on the Virginia Politics blog: Today in Tommy Norment's Voice Mail.
Today in Tommy Norment's voice mail:
"This is Tommy Norment at Kaufman & Canoles, and it is Monday, October the 18th. On this day in 1867, the Alaska territory was transferred from Russia to the United States. And thus began the career of Sarah Palin."
