It’s that time of the year again

The air around the state feels cleaner, more easy to breathe, as though a pestilence had departed. And then I remember that the air has improved everywhere but in Juneau where all the bad air is about to descend in one foul smelling ball of politicians who will once again spend more time than allotted trying to avoid making the hard decisions about how to keep Alaska financially afloat.

Just as the spectacle of the Orangeman starts to sink into our consciousness as the most horrible of horrible political mistakes America ever made, here comes the Alaska Legislature to show that up here, we do horrible more horribly than Orangeman can even imagine.

Am I wrong? Go ahead, Alaska Legislature. Prove me wrong… please. Find a viable financial solution to our deepening budget crisis without using the words, “Constitutional Budget Reserve” or “another boom, please god”.
