Our election will affect abortion rights abroad
The following editorial appeared in Thursday's San Jose Mercury News: The next president may or may not have enough Supreme Court appointments to alter the status of Roe v. Wade. But he will have the power to determine whether abortions will be made available to many Third World women.

Perhaps He knew what He was doing
Here in America, in our "one nation, under God," it is not easy being Godless. This country was formed by people seeking freedom to worship in their own way, and today we tolerate (in degrees) many faiths, but we're not very comfortable with people who do not worship at all.

Worthwhile step
Princess Cruise Lines and Alaska Electric Light and Power are embarking on a commendable effort to reduce visible air pollution in Juneau.

Winds of democracy know no boundaries
The following editorial appeared in today's Washington Post: Fearing that he could not win a free and fair election against major opponents, Ivory Coast strongman Gen. Robert Guei earlier this month got his puppet supreme court to bar all but five of 19 presidential candidates. That brazen rigging of the rules failed, as confirmed by the preliminary official results in last Sunday's presidential elections. Faced with a tally that showed him losing, Gen. Guei suspended Sunday's vote count and declared himself the victor. Then he heard from the people.

Time we listened

Bush presidency: More than a reprise
When George W. Bush appeared last month on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," he flatly rejected the suggestion that revenge for his father's 1992 defeat was a factor in his decision to seek the presidency.

No caribou to view
Please support Proposition 1. Opponents claim that ADF&G opposes the measure. Is that why area biologists are under a gag order? Every Alaska wildlife biologist I have spoken with supports ballot measure 1. They recognize the danger to the resource by having what should be a scientific biological decision decided by confusing ad campaigns by those with the deepest pockets.
