A death too soon
Ken Kadow of Juneau High School's class of 1952 died on June 17. About a month ago he told me that he didn't think that he would make our 50-year reunion, and, as usual, he was right.

Thank you

Weekend Best Bets
From Perseverance Theatre's "STAR" to Juneau Dance Unlimited's Summer Arts Festival, Juneau's arts-oriented summer camps provide great outlets for creativity - and they're fun for families to watch as well. Two to check out this weekend are JDU's Concert in the Park performance and the Alaska Theatre of Youth's production of "Runaway Fable."

Working toward balance through dreams
"How many of you can tell the future?"

Can't we do better?
I was shocked to read in Wednesday's Empire that the black bear cub whose mother had been shot was euthanized within 24 hours of the mother's death. The article stated the decision to euthanize had been made by Fish and Game because they had been unable to find a zoo to place the cub.

Summit spinner is also summit winner
In media coverage of the Slovenia summit, President Bush came out unscathed from an important foreign summit. But it appears the real winner in the months to come will be Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Possible permutations of perversity programming
Fred Allen, a mordantly sophisticated radio performer, died (mercifully, if not causally) just as television was permeating America, in 1956. He warned us: "Imitation is the sincerest form of television." So there will be imitations of "Fear Factor."

Definitely other alternatives
In regards to Tuesday morning's black bear shootings: I wasn't there, but from reading the articles, talking to others and hearing from my dad (a police officer), it sounds to me like it was a "quick fix." Bears get aggressive - simple fact. So do humans. Do we shoot every human who yells at their dog or gets a little irritated with their neighbor? I understand that the people need to be protected and that the officers had to do what they had to do, but I believe that death is not the only solution we have when dealing with bears that have entered the community.

Live from the scene
This editorial appeared in today's Los Angeles Times: Overheard cell phone conversation: "Bernie? It's me. I'm on the freeway. Listen. I just got a great idea for a fall series. It's like reality TV only faker. OK, we get a crew and camera in a chopper. We fly over a different big city every week. We pick a van out of traffic and just start filming from the air. Wherever it goes, we go. Freeway. Local streets. The mall. We're filming.
