Why anyone would still even admit to being a republican after this last 6 year fiasco, is beyond comprehension.

If you want to eat a steak do it now. Beef and chicken are very expensive there.

Hubby's going to be so jealous when I tell him you're heading there again. haha His three weeks there last summer just wasn't enough for the ol' guy. He can't wait to return for another month or so. And he'd better hurry since I'm down to two pkgs of salmon in the freezer.

Have fun!!

Re: Leaving for Kodiak Alaska tomorrow............

By The Associated Press

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) -- In a rare predatory attack, a brown bear killed and partially ate a man at a campground a few miles from a bear-viewing site in far southeast Alaska.

The body of George Tullos, 41, was found Saturday at the Run Amuck campground near Hyder, a small community on the Canadian border about 75 miles northeast of Ketchikan. The attack apparently happened sometime late Friday.

``It was not a matter of slapping him around. The bear ate on him,'' state trooper Sgt. Steve Garrett said Monday.

After the bear was shot and killed, biologists found the victim's flesh in its stomach, said Bruce Dinneford, regional management coordinator for the state Division of Wildlife Conservation.

Similar to my defense of greedy "flesh-eating" corporations, my
sympathies lie with the bear.
