Parading in the wrong place

...inequality and justice in other countries. When people parade and demonstrate - and lay down their lives at times - in their own nations for the benefits that our predecessors gained, the "immigration problem" will fade away. Wallace Olson Auke Bay
Monopoly puts squeeze on Alaska residents

...reservation for the same time of year to Guadalajara. The best price I could find was about $1,800. But we really have no choice since there is no competition for air travel out of Juneau. Sound off on the important issues at Wallace Olson Auke Bay
Vote with an open, informed mind

...voters who consider all candidates and issues fairly with an open mind. Our greatest responsibility is to follow our conscience and vote. It is especially so for those of us who are "nonpartisan" or "undeclared" voters. Wally Olson Auke Bay
Equality and our neighbors to the south

...wish to enter the United States, they do so under the same restrictions as apply to United States' citizens entering Mexico. They should at least do so under either Mexican or United States law. Fair is fair, isn't it? Wally Olson Auke Bay
Making government representative

...election campaigns of those destined to represent us. We may not have a democracy, but we certainly do have a right to a truly representative government. We don't want Alaskans to be represented by the highest bidder. Wallace M. Olson Auke Bay
Venezuelan leader should be thanked

...actually did what he said he would do for Alaska rural villages. He said that he would help those in need and did it. I think that all we need to say is, "Gracias" - thank you, and may others learn from their example. Wallace Olson Auke Bay
Level the field

...other nations do as we have done, all immigrants should be welcome. We can "out-source" jobs or allow immigration, only when all the pay and benefits are equal. In the real world, let's have a "level playing field." Wally Olson Auke Bay
A voters' lottery a voter should do. Crazy? Off the wall? What a surprise it might be to see that voter turnout in Juneau wasn't 30 percent or so, but 80 percent to 90 percent! OK. I'm ready to donate $100 to a voters' lottery. Wally Olson Auke Bay
Are we all equal in health care debate?

...that our elected members of Congress and Senate have voted to give themselves. They could just extend those benefits to all legal citizens. Fair is fair isn't it? Are we all equal or are some people more equal than others? Wally Olson Auke Bay
Big corporations not an even playing field

...corporate organizations be given the same rights as private individuals, or should they regulated as a business. Thank you, Dr. Ott, for opening an old man's eyes again to the real world, even though I wasn't there. Wally Olson Auke Bay
