On April 20, 2010, an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico killed 11 workers and unleashed the biggest oil spill in history. Soaked in stinking goo, a million birds also perished -- quadruple the toll from the infamous 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster in Alaska. For the humans killed in the Deepwater Horizon accident, BP pleaded guilty to 11 felonies and paid $4 billion. The deceased birds cost it $100 million, money that was used to restore wetlands and conserve... [Read More]
Wildlife experts are calling this summer one of the busiest years of bear encounters they have seen. The Anchorage Daily News reports biologists believe that poor berry crops and struggling salmon are motivating the hungry bears to wander away from the woods and go into towns. Recent incidents include a black bear taking over the Juneau arboretum and another bruin that shut down a fish-cleaning facility.

I wish the media would stop characterizing the Russian interference in our elections as meddling, which is defined as, "to interfere in or busy oneself unduly with something that is not one's concern." That term trivializes what is being done. Election hacking is an intentional, directed, prolonged attack upon the basic governmental structures of one sovereign state by the state assets of another sovereign state. That does not quite meet Clausewitz's definition of war ("War, therefore, is an act of violence to compel our opponent to fulfill our will") because the Russians are not actually blowing...

I have followed the processing of the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court Justice with growing concern. He certainly has not always been forthright in providing information and records. Now, serious evidence has arisen suggesting that he may have committed a felony sexual assault on a juvenile, possibly related to abuse of alcohol. Since the process began, he has done nothing to extinguish the doubt that he would exercise the checks and balances implied by our Constitution, against the White House, to protect the principle of rule of law, and our institutions charged with enforcing...
