About North Dakota’s Congressional delegation in shaking the federal money tree following the flood, Witt likened Conrad/Dorgan/Pomeroy to a tenatious pitbull. "And if they bite you, they won’t let go until it thunders."
One can only wonder what the early recovery from Hurricane Katrina would have been like under James Lee Witt rather than "Brownie."
I’m taking former Grand Forks Mayor Pat Owens recommendation and adding Witt’s book "Stronger in the Broken Places" to my reading list. She says she keeps a copy of it on her desk at her home in Florida–not her bookshelf, her desk.
After seeing the Summer Performing Arts Company’s "Keep The Faith" the other night, Witt shared the intriguing idea with yesterday’s audience of finding corporate sponsorship to take the SPA company’s show to the SuperBowl in New Orleans. How about some Haliburton money?
