  1. I am going to ask him if it is a requirement that anyone appointed to the Supreme Court must have attended either Harvard or Yale law school.

    IMO, the lack of intellectual and experiential diversity on the Court is getting worse and worse. Eventually it will greatly harm the republic.

  2. we need a real leader as Gov of Alaska, Action Matters more than words that leader would be (Mike Dunleavy for Gov thank you Larry Zenor.
