Ok, STEVE GRUHN makes a good point here. Alaska is a one-trick pony, and that trick isn't going to last forever. But I say to Steve, dwelling in a hypothetical future that's full of sacrifice and pain, and making provisions to avoid it ain't Alaskan. Chicken Little is not the state bird, it's the mighty Willow Ptarmagin. "Be Prepared" is the boy Scout motto, not the Alaska State motto. Heck, with an extinct creature (The Wooly Mammoth) as our official state fossil, we actually celebrate failure here in the Great Land.
We're a carpe-diem-live-fast-die-young-make- a-pretty-corpse-state. With a trust fund. We're Paris Hilton in buckskin. We're a state of gamblers,and in our hearts we know the house always wins.
So we take the breaks as they come. Steve asks what we'll do for an encore? Heck, we're flush at the moment. We'll just buy one.
We'll most likely be back next week,
