Brennan: State road-building priorities are wrong

By Tom Brennan Believe it or not, there is no line of cars with honking horns waiting for the Knik Arm Crossing to be built. You might think drivers were clamoring for the project based on the priority given by our state leaders to the billion-dollar crossing and the more than $130 million in state […]

Brennan: There is no database of deranged

By Tom Brennan National gun control advocates are saying we need background checks to keep firearms out of the hands of the mentally deranged. I agree with the idea, absolutely, but there is a problem. Let’s say I own a sporting goods store and want to check on a prospective buyer before selling him a […]

Brennan: Forget about those dams

By Tom Brennan It’s time to get off this political correctness bandwagon and stop doing stupid things in the name of environmental stewardship.

And guess who plays their […]

But the Arctic icepack has been increasing for the last two years and has grown by more than 1 million […]

Brennan: Alaska pot use second in nation

By Tom Brennan If Alaska’s pot users remember to go to the polls on Nov. 4, this state could be the next – or one of the next – to legalize recreational use of marijuana. Everybody will be voting, but young people especially could be drawn to the voting booth in large numbers since legalization […]
