On other Alaska blogging fronts, the Dillingham public radio station News Director resigned from her job today under a storm of criticism for perceived poor taste in the contents of her personal blog, www.chillyhell.blogspot.com . I scanned the blog quickly to get an idea of the tone of her blog - one item that caught my eye was she used to work for our very own Anne Hillman - and I have to say that for me, she does seem a bit snarky for someone supposedly representing the common good. You can read the Anchorage Daily News article here. Drop me a comment, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the issue.
My brother should be here in about 12 hours! Right about now my son should be picking him up at the Anchorage Airport and letting him crash at his place until his flight in the morning. Great job Bro on an epic journey - he left his house 20 hours ago, driving to Portland, Maine where he took a bus to Boston. From Boston to Portland, Oregon, then on to Anchorage. Poor guy, it's taking him a day and a half just to get here. And you know, if you look on a globe, it really is a very long ways from Maine to Unalaska, no matter how you travel.
