Alaska could learn something from Seattle and other large urban megalopolises when it comes to the homeless and “diversion” programs. Take, for instance, operations in place for decades in cities such as San Francisco and New York and West Palm Beach, in Florida, to help send the homeless back to where they say they came […]

Thank you, Beto

Freedom-loving Americans should send former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke a thank-you note for finally telling the truth during the last Democratic debate, a truth that the Left has been denying for years.

Bad news
