Sorry 'bout that, but stuff happens.
There's plenty of purely local news, but not much that would interest anyone Outside. Police found the body of a woman missing for a month ... there've been 24 shootings in the northern third of Anchorage this year, but very few farther south ... this political group isn't fond of that one ... and so on.
Like I said, nothing that would fascinate a reader in Des Moines, or wherever.
I've been busy, and there's lots of activity at work. Routine things, really, but a lot happening at once.

But since it's Friday, here are a few funny/strange/weird laws from around Alaska:
- While it is legal to shoot bears, waking a sleeping bear for the purpose of taking a photograph is prohibited. (state law)
- Persons may not live in a trailer as it is being hauled across the city. (Anchorage)
- It is considered an offense to feed alcoholic beverages to a moose. (Fairbanks)
- Employers of bars may not let their bartenders serve while they are drunk themselves. (Haines)
- Owners of flamingos may not let their pet into barber shops. (Juneau)
- For all you would-be pranksters out there, it is illegal to string a wire across any road. (Anchorage)
