Walking into the new Alaska State Library, Archives and Museum is an experience no one should miss.
Above you, a natural wood ceiling soars. Below you, the state’s shape is etched in stone. Surrounding you are works of phenomenal art and history. This new building is truly a cathedral of learning and a monument to Alaska’s 10,000-year history.
We will never see anything like it again.
The Alaska Legislature’s actions Monday show that the 49th state no longer has any interest in mere education. All will be sacrificed to appease the gods of oil and industry.
