Could Anybody Call this Man "East Coast Looking?"


No, you say—he has the stamp of the sourdough all over his face. And you would be right.

Sheila Toomey—the experienced Alaska journalist who compiles the “Alaska Ear” column in the Sunday edition of the Anchorage Daily News—has told me that her tip about somebody speaking with former Gov. Tony Knowles at Sidestreet Expresso came on Tuesday evening, before my Wednesday morning session with him last week. As odd it sounds, this means that two white-haired bearded men wearing jackets with elbow patches met with the former Governor at a small Anchorage coffee shop in less than 16 hours.

Whew, glad we got that one cleared up. And you could see what this guy looks like for yourself by coming to see me speak at the Polaris Lecture at the University of Anchorage on Thursday, March 18. It will be held at UAA’s new ConocoPhillips Integrated Sciences Building (CPISB) at Room 120 at 7:30 p.m.
The title is “Causes and Consequences of the Federal Investigation into Alaska Public Corruption: Can We Get Off the Slippery Slope?”

As I told Sheila, the talk will be juicier than the title.
