"In Ramah is heard the sound of moaning, of bitter weeping. Rachel mourns her children. She refuses to be consoled because her children are no more. Thus says the LORD; Cease your cries of mourning; wipe those tears from your eyes. The sorrow you have shown shall have its reward. There is hope for your future."

Gushing about oil
The following editorial appeared in today's Washington Post: The United States lacks a serious energy policy, one that promises over time to produce a reasonable match between presumably finite supplies and steadily rising demand. The failure to enact such a policy has been thoroughly bipartisan. Neither party when in power and neither elected branch of government has wanted to impose the discipline that a sensible policy requires. That's the context in which, as Election Day approaches, the presidential candidates are now arguing about responsibility for the rising price of oil.

My turn
Juneau residents should vote for improved ferry service on ballot Proposition 6 on Oct. 3. After much study, the state of Alaska has chosen this option and is ready to move forward. With daily high-speed ferry service, we can have year-round, safe, convenient, and lower-cost access within three years, versus 12 or more years for a highly hazardous toll road that would likely be impassable in winter. Additional vessels can readily be brought into the fleet in future decades if demand grows. Residents and visitors alike love the ferry ride to Haines and Skagway. Ferries are safe, fun, and good for bringing families and friends together.
