Traffic Cop Awaiting Snow, Plus Some Criticism


If you haven't read the wrap-ups in the Anchorage Daily News and the Alaska Dispatch of the federal probe into Alaska public corruption pegged to last Friday's re-sentencings, you should.   

More speculative is the piece in the Alaska Dispatch partly  carved out of the new book on the scandals by the website's Amanda Coyne and Tony Hopfinger.   My own view is that the article overplays the role of the "POLAR PEN" investigation in the political rise of Sarah Palin and goes too far in suggesting that the corruption investigation killed off the prospects for a natural gas pipeline across Alaska, but your mileage may vary.
