The following editorial first appeared in the Ketchikan Daily News:
Gov. Sean Parnell didn’t threaten to retaliate against Ketchikan in reaction to an education lawsuit filed by the community’s borough.

He acknowledged the same sentiments that appeared in a Ketchikan Daily News editorial shortly after the Ketchikan Gateway Borough decided in a narrow 4-3 vote to pursue the suit: By nature a lawsuit is an unfriendly gesture.
