  1. Even if his body were to lie in state here in Alaska, most people would not be able to see him since we’d have to travel to Juneau. What a crapshow this state’s Juneau focus for government.

  2. Let’s just have a big wake party for Don at Chena Hot Springs Resort outside of Fairbanks. BYOB. Baseball caps required. Bernie Karl can officiate and recite the best Don Young jokes and stories. Leave the kiddies at home.

  3. Washington DC was having a major thunder and lightning event that lasted a very long time last night. Anyone being out and about would not have wanted to be out and about. The very expensive weather manufacturing industry should run out of funds soon I hope. I don’t believe we have had natural weather patterns for quite a long time in this or other nations thanks to Haarp and spraying operations. Your resident spoke of the One World Order. Hmmm.

  4. Amen! We must move the Capitol to the central part of the state, with road access for the majority of the population! The Knick Arm bridge, The new Port at Point Mac Kenzie, The Canadian Railroad extension!!!!! Alaska has the potential to soar! Politic’s are our Bain and must be remedied! Constitutional Convention here we come!

    • Every Capital of every state is the liberal progressive utopia of that state. It always becomes more liberal because most of those in Government think every answer is more Government. Anchorage is already 50% lib nuts. The last thing I want in my city is more politicians. Do you really think they care one iota what you think because you meet them in person? Look at the assembly meetings. People show up, they do what they want. People don’t show up, they still do what they want. Juneau can keep the liberal idiots. It will keep Anchorage somewhat tolerable a few more years till I can move like all the other conservatives are doing. This city is already lost, it’s just how fast it will happen. Just sayin…..

  5. Yeah, and if he were lying in Anchorage then the entire state would have to travel to ‘Anchorage’ for the services…
