Why I love Alaska

These two stories ran on the same day in Alaska Dispatch. How can you not love a state that produces them?

1. Fueled by soaring stock market, Alaska’s net worth climbs to $103,000 per person

2. Nearly naked inmate flees Dillingham jail, briefly (Followed by this opening line… and remember, it’s winter in Alaska) A 20-year-old man managed to escape police custody in the Southwest Alaska village for a very short time, wearing nothing but underwear. He was captured when he solicited a ride from an off-duty officer.
