A little while ago I wrote this:
If it's really true that the King Air can land on some runways that the jet cannot, I'm really looking forward to seeing Governor Palin visit the remote, subsistence villages that are equally a part of the state but are so frequently overlooked by road-system politicians. That would be the only saving grace of this impending sale.So let me congratulate Governor Palin for this bit of news:
Gov. Sarah Palin on Saturday will visit New Stuyahok, in part to find out why the Yup'ik village of 450 residents has experienced at least five alcohol-related deaths this year.As long as this isn't some stunt, I'm genuinely impressed that she's going to be in a remote village in the first month of her term in office.
Now if only she'd visit a village in our listening area and let me come along on the trip...
