The Kids' Names

More

An Alaskan reader writes:

Actually, Sarah Palin's children are not named for television characters. Willow is a town in Alaska and Piper is for an aircraft. Bristol is also for a place in Alaska and Trig is for a family member. Track is named for where he was conceived. This is the story that has been running around AK for ages. I'm sure her office will release some statement on the kid's names but no, the names are not at all from a television show.

He was conceived on a track? Pray tell some more ...
