As ardent students of Alaska and American culture, we enjoy penning occasional thoughts to help keep the discussion lively, balanced and above-the-table, to perhaps give those who agree with us hope and those who disagree something to think about, and to honor our civic duties and help keep the Empire in the black.
We'd like to take this opportunity to humbly thank the editors for providing this forum, for their time, patience and fortitude in a process we know must be at times like walking a tightrope with a deadline, and probably too often watching their careers flash before their eyes with each beep of the e-mail inbox.
