Even on our recent Holiday Vacation tour to Alaska, I couldn't resist keeping up with politics. Little did I know that once our summertime tour group returned home August 29th, Alaskan politics would take center stage in September, October and November.
(Governor Sarah Palin was chosen as John McCain's running mate the day we arrived home.)
Our quiet and pleasant journey to Alaska was followed up by a whirlwind national political campaign by Palin. That was quickly followed up by the corruption trial and conviction of longtime Senator Ted Stevens. We missed all that in person. It's a good thing I was already reading a lot about that stuff by reading the "Anchorage Daily News."
There are already some great headlines in the ADN today, and I wanted to share the way to keep up with those political stories. Just log onto www.adn.com. Even tonight, (Wednesday) there's the amazing story that Senator Stevens is trailing Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich by only THREE VOTES in their Senate election. I'll be reading ADN and hope you will, too.. It's gonna get good, especially if Palin names herself to Stevens' seat in Washington and serves there to find out what Washington is REALLY all about.
