I'll Be on C-SPAN Sunday, March 15

Anchorage, D.C.—

C-SPAN is doing two progams on the Ted Stevens trial and the Alaska public corruption investigation. Brian Lamb's hour-long interview of me will air on the C-SPAN program "Q&A" on Sunday, March 15, at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. It will also air on Monday, March 16, at 6 a.m. (This is the original C-SPAN network; all times are Eastern.)

C-SPAN has also told me that another program on these topics featuring Rich Mauer of the Anchorage Daily News will air the week after that in the same time slots.

If you get a chance to catch the interview of me on TV, I'd be interested in what you thought.

Thank you, Public Citizen, Hero,
Alaska Frontiersman, Historian!

From Tampa, Florida near the
Mexican Frontier.

First, how little it takes to
corrupt the leaders. Judas
in Bible took 30 pieces of silver,
worth 240 thousand dollars today.
Sixteen hundred cash is going
'I'll Sell My Soul to the Devil'
SOULS? THE Devil aka Satan.

Third, great assessment. Ironic
on points scored on both the defense and prosecutor.

Fourth, voice lessons for slight
pollishing - um, ah every two minutes. Lower to your natural
baritone voice, not high pitched.

Look forward to the book.

Not such a good job on C-Span, Cliff. I expect Richard Mauer will be much better.

I'm surprised you were praising Ray Metcalf. He's as much a transparent blowhard as Prewitt.

Also, you never mentioned the real problems with Uncle Ted's prosecutiion. He wasn't charged with the far more serious things he'd done in Alaska, because no jury in the state would convict him. Half the voters think he's Robin Hood, working for them.

Tom Kizzia worked the longest on issues involved the "Polar Pen" case, back as long as eight years ago. His work was outstanding. Lisa Demer did a good job too. The LA Times did a terrific work on some of the financial stuff that Uncle Ted was involved in, such as fisheries and Sea Life, but he couldn't be prosecuted for that in Alaska because no jury could be found that might objectively consider the evidence.
