With apologies to Mastercard

Standing strong on "public safety, transportation, and education" in the capital budget: $237 billion, give or take;

Cost to governor's popularity: a few points, maybe

Keeping Matanuska Maid open for a handful of Valley dairy farmers: $600,000

Amount of teen centers in Savoonga the Mat Maid money could buy: 8

Being "biased toward the Valley": priceless.

(Thanks to a reader for pointing this out.)

(Yes, I admit consistency is false goal. I just wish politicians would be a little more upfront about it and not try to insist that their decisions are perfectly defensible.)
