We haven't checked the stats, but somehow we doubt that Anchorage is exactly East Oakland with snow. Although we once had some adventures with snow in East Oakland — but that's neither here nor there and a long time ago. Regardless, some people are alarmed with the increasing rate of drive-by-type violence in Alaska's largest city. And in ways, we have to agree. We think the wild-frontierness of Alaska is pretty cool, but there's really no reason to drive around capping people. Actually, there's no good reason to drive around capping people in general. Unless, of course, you're Dick Cheney. But then you just do it on foot. Dickie, grab your gun and get up there. There's oil under that thar tundra!
