Okay, Greenies, don't say no one ever listens to you

[cheerleading]
Here's your chance, CabinDwelling and Non-Water-Challenged alike, to express yourselves to one of the candidates.

Ethan Berkowitz, Knowles' running mate on the Democratic ticket, is going to be in Fairbanks on Saturday. He is holding a roundtable session at the Cloudberry B&B - so if you want to talk about what issues matter to you in this election, there is your opportunity.

Time: 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 a.m.

This is not a fundraising type event - so being broke is no excuse, no one is going to be talking you into opening up your checkbook.* And if you don't tell the candidates which issues matter to you, how can you expect them to address them??

[/cheerleading]

*Do people even have checkbooks anymore? I mean, I do - but I have serious Luddite tendencies, as evidenced by the actual record player sitting on the shelf.

Response to your sidebar issue: I think in other places, no... people don't have checkbooks. Here in Alaska, we all use them. I never used a checkbook before moving here. Maybe Fairbanks forces us all to be Luddites?

I am glad to hear Berkowitz is making himself open. I just wish that it was better advertised. How did you find out he was in town?

Well, in classic small-town fashion, I heard from someone who heard from someone.
