The sun is shining, and I'm off to Alaska's jewel-like Prince William Sound, where I will kayak, eat good seafood, and watch some Fourth of July fireworks on the beach. I won't be back at a computer until Monday afternoon, July 6.
During any downtime in the celebration of our country's anniversary, readers might want to ponder the following question. Will the accumulating list of problems in the five-year-old federal investigation of Alaska public corruption combine with the Last Frontier's distance from our nation's capital to lead the Department of Justice to stop that investigation in order to give prosecutors around the U.S. a lesson on how to comply with discovery obligations? To put it another way, will Attorney General Eric Holder pull the plug on "POLAR PEN" to use it as a teachable moment for crime-fighters?
