(Newser) – Today’s the big day: The 24,199-page, 275-pound trove of emails from the first two years of Sarah Palin’s stint as governor of Alaska is almost here. The state will release them at 9am local time (1pm ET), reports Mother Jones, which requested the emails back in 2008. Reporters began arriving in Juneau, which is only accessible by air or water, yesterday, the Anchorage Daily News reports. They will pick up six boxes’ worth of documents and a hand truck (which they have to bring back), and immediately start a mad scramble to report on what they find. Click to see how you can help the Washington Post do just that.
