Brennan: That hole in the bucket

By Tom Brennan If Bill Walker serves as Alaska’s governor for the next four years – as it appears he will – there will almost certainly be days when he wonders why he wanted the job in the first place. Every governor has difficult days, and such thoughts may occur to all of them, but […]

Brennan: Pot law means step backward for police

By Tom Brennan The bad news is that the pot measure passed and the legalization process will now begin.
