I've never been prouder of my little home state.
In completely unrelated news:
JUNEAU -- Former two-term Democratic governor Tony Knowles said Monday that he will run for a third term. . .This could get interesting, I wish I could say more.
In 2004, Knowles ran and lost against Republican Lisa Murkowski for the U.S. Senate seat that her father, Frank Murkowski, had vacated and appointed her to fill when he became governor in 2002.
Frank Murkowski announced Friday that he will seek a second term as governor.
