Illarionov: Putin’s new term—from Brezhnev to Stalin

By Andrei Illionov | As was widely expected, on Sunday Vladimir Putin was once again reinstalled (reconfirmed, re-enthroned) in the Kremlin. The term “elected” cannot be used in this case since nothing that happened on March 18, 2018, or in the months leading to this date, qualifies for the internationally recognized basic standards of the […]

Pruden: The septuagenarian smackdown

By Wesley Pruden | This won’t be “the thrilla in Manila,” or the “rumble in the jungle,” but “two clowns in a septuagenarian smackdown” should do more for the sweet science of boxing than anything since the two Joe Louis-Max Schmeling fights on the eve of World War II.

By Tom Brennan | The Alaska Legislature should bite the bullet and pass legislation that would allow the Fairbanks Four to apply for the Permanent Fund dividends they missed while spending 18 years in prison on questionable charges. The four men — Marvin Roberts, George Freese, Kevin Pease and Eugene Vent — were released in […]
