The vote on Tuesday was disappointing, to say the least. Fifty-three percent of the people who turned out see nothing wrong with treating a whole group of people like second-rate citizens. Get out your white sheets, everybody! Time to join the damn Klanners, apparently.

I am DISGUSTED with my fellow Alaskans. Evidently, people up north no longer understand why protecting a minority is important--and that says volumes about the state of our understanding of just what democracy and freedom really are.

it's like we just lobbed the state constitution into the trash, in a long disgraceful arc, eh. fortunately, it's not going to gain them much traction. there's not a chance the legislature will take any action on this. and spending $1.2m on a useless advisory vote kind of takes the wind out of their sails, re.: the old argument that the conservatives have superior fiscal responsibility.
