Sticks and stones

...with my political views. But he also said that I "don't have a lick of sense and no appreciation for class." Oooh - that smarted. Good gracious, how did my ex-wife ever get hold of that man? Oh dear, oh dear. Erik Lie-Nielsen Juneau
Send bill to Sen. Taylor

...him pay this bill. Fat chance. Elected officials who violate our trust are not entitled to our respect. Alaskans should not tolerate Sen. Taylor's behavior nor be required to pay for his obscene special interests. Erik Lie-Nielsen Juneau
Election contrasts

...from outside the state: Frank Murkowski. They are different as oil and water; that is a concise summary of their differences. Alaskans sure have a clear choice between opposites this time. You go girl! Fran Ulmer! Erik Lie-Nielsen Juneau
There was a more affordable option

...what he wanted, and spent over three carefree weeks wandering in Alaska with money to spare and no wear and tear on his own vehicle. Perhaps he can give me a call next time and I will gladly tell him how to arrange that. Erik Lie-Nielsen Juneau

...considerable portion of his salary and expenses. Both articles spoke volumes of the dire need in our country for campaign finance reform and for term limits for the arrogant incumbents like the Honorable? Mr. Don Young. Erik Lie-Nielsen Juneau
Bong Hits 4 Jesus and Joseph Frederick for them. I find it most ironic that even the religionists are now condemning them, though not for the right reasons. I wish to thank those who have kept their perspectives over this issue and done the right thing. Erik Lie-Nielsen Juneau
Smarmy damage control by Bush

...abject failure of our government. Bush gets an F-minus for this one. What else has this administration left us grossly unprepared for, and how much will it now cost the rest of us to provide security for our citizens? Erik Lie-Nielsen Juneau
