Debated parking lot close to finish

Biologists oppose politics of Ballot Measure 1
By now you've probably seen opinion pieces suggesting that wildlife biologists favor Proposition 1 to "protect Alaska's wildlife." They're telling you Proposition 1 would keep outside special interests from meddling with our wildlife and return management to the professionals. So why would people like us retired biologists with over 20 years each with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game urge you to vote no on Proposition 1?

The Nader dissent
The following editorial excerpt appeared in today's Washington Post: Ralph Nader is dismissive of the differences between the major political parties and their presidential candidates. That's the basis of his campaign, and of his assertion that it doesn't matter if he drains votes from Al Gore. The Democrats and Republicans are "one corporate party with two heads," he said the other day. He argued that the issues on which they differ are minor when seen alongside their "enormous similarities."

Prop 1 is environmentally sound
As a lifelong conservation activist I've fought hard to safeguard Alaska's wildlands and conserve critical fish and wildlife habitat. I'm proud that those efforts have directly resulted in the protection of tens of thousands of acres of quality lands, securing many valuable places for the public's use and enjoyment. When it comes to environmental issues, I know I've paid my dues, and then some.

Yemen: An abundance of roadblocks for U.S.
The following editorial appeared in today's Los Angeles Times: The U.S. destroyer Cole has begun its long journey home from Yemen, where a terrorist explosion on Oct. 12 killed 17 of its crew, injured 39 and left the $1 billion ship heavily damaged. The inquiry into the attack continues, with frustration rising among American officials who complain that the Yemeni regime is being less than fully cooperative. Resemblances to the investigation that followed the 1996 bombing that killed 19 Americans at a U.S. barracks in Saudi Arabia have been noted. In that case the Saudis blocked some avenues of inquiry, and the investigation ultimately came to a dead end.

When more is better
The following editorial appeared in Saturdays Anchorage Daily News: Alaska Conservation Voters, a coalition of environmental groups, decided Friday to disclose more information about the sources for their political funding.
