...true conservatives of Alaska. I call on the people of Alaska to fire you as soon as possible and elect folks who will attend to the state's business with the interests of all Alaskans at heart. Shame on you. Erik Lie-Nielsen Juneau
Contradictions, conflicts

...organization" partially funded by the state and which supports development in SE Alaska? I respect Mr. Johnson's First Amendment rights, but does anyone besides me see contradictions or conflicts of interest here? Erik Lie-Nielsen Juneau
Our war president never served

...Republicans distancing themselves from Bush over the upcoming elections bears that out. If Mr. Harben really wants to know what a "failure" is, he should try a Google search on that word and see what pops up on top. Erik Lie-Nielsen Juneau
Dissent is an obligation

...and grandchildren also may well be paying in blood for his current boasts, cowboy braggadocio - and errors of judgment. Today, a majority of Americans (53 percent) believe we will be better off without Bush. Erik Lie-Nielsen Juneau

Rebutting arguments for a road

...always amazes me that someone comes to Juneau and right away starts hollering to change things to make it just like where they came from. Respect the treasure we have now and don't turn things into Seattle North. Erik Lie-Nielsen Juneau
