A view from Outside on Murkowski
From outside of Alaska. I don't think Lisa Murkowski is Democrat. I think she's a liberal Republican.

Holiday cheer noticed
"What I do, you cannot do; but what you do, I cannot do. The needs are great and none of us ever do great things. But we can do small things with great love, and together we can do something wonderful." -- Mother Teresa

Another take on religion and DADT
After reading one of the most disgusting outbursts of hatred against gays concerning the DADT issue, I just had to add my two cents. Enough with the ridiculous fear mongering and bigotry. There are over 25 countries whose military already allows gay people to openly serve. So far, none of these countries have imploded or fallen into the sea. George Washington was mentioned in the latest bigoted rant, and was used as an example of someone seeking divine guidance. I guess getting guidance from the Christian god would explain why he failed to see a problem with slavery.

Parnell: No guilt in coming forward
Gov. Sean Parnell has a message for the 12-year-old girl sexually assaulted by a foster parent and shunned by her community for reporting it and for the 16-year-old sent away by her parents to "silence" her from talking about her father's sexual attacks and the 14-year-old who cannot sleep at night because she fears her father will molest her younger sister and for the college student raped on campus and for the woman beaten by a loved one in her own home.

ANB against Campbell as comissioner
Newly appointed Alaska Department of Fish and Game Commissioner Cora Campbell has weathered many stormy seas since she graced the deck of her father's fishing boat at 1 year of age, going on to take a full crew position by age 11, pay her way through college with the sweat and toil of the sea's harvest, and then working behind the scenes to further Alaskan's subsistence and fishing rights, so this week's press release by the Alaska Native Brotherhood Grand Camp rejecting her experience came as a shock.

Looking forward: 2011 economy in limbo
