Bush's action reminds writer of a joke

...reminds me of a drunk, who runs over a pedestrian in a crosswalk. The driver's response: "Gosh, you seem to have broken your leg. Let me back over you and see if that helps." Sound off on the important issues at Jim Greenough Juneau
Thank you for passing health care

It took a century in coming, but thanks to President Barack Obama, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, as well as many more, our fine nation has become part of the modern world. Access to health care as a basic right is affirmed. Jim Greenough Juneau
Don't let oil industry buy its way out of tax

...being suckered again, we can have the courage of our convictions and stick with ACES. Alaska already decided it was a good law. Let's not let the oil companies use their record profits to convince us otherwise. Jim Greenough Juneau
Boycott the sponsors of 9/11 miniseries

...response. This show's airing may not be an isolated poor choice. It reflects a corporate decision to risk the stability and reputation of the United States for an unholy combination of political and economic gain. Jim Greenough Juneau
No vote needed to keep wetlands magical

...thought of all the fish and animal life it supports buoys my spirit. Certainly it is part of what makes this place so magical for tourists and residents alike. Voting no on Proposition 2 will help keep it that way. Jim Greenough Juneau
Gabriella's comments reflect own beliefs

...personnel policies, that Wal-Mart drives out local business, and that it kills downtown areas. Done well those responses would earn my respect. Comparing the Heberts to suicide bombers does not quite make the cut. Jim Greenough Juneau
Can we keep a lid on election results for West Coast voters?

...would be released before midnight, Eastern Daylight Time? I believe that would be late enough to allow voters in all 50 states to vote without being unduly influenced by pundits telling them their vote does not count. Jim Greenough Juneau
Opening Pack Creek to hunting is bad policy

...mainland, are already open for brown bear hunting. I hope the Board of Game will recognize that sacrificing the integrity of Pack Creek and Swan Cove for a tiny increase in consumptive use would be very bad policy. Jim Greenough Juneau
Governor needs to address alcoholism

...Alaska will confirm this. Though she omitted any mention of these problems in her State of the State speech, Palin still has plenty of opportunity to address them with the focus, energy and funding they deserve. Jim Greenough Juneau
More oil isn't worth the risk

...spill will be a huge environmental disaster, as was the one north of Australia last year and many others we never hear about. A little more oil is not worth the risk, or rather the certainty, of the next disaster. Jim Greenough Juneau
