In AK, Palin pouts, critics criticize

The front page of Tuesday’s Anchorage Daily News carries an interesting pair of stories about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s quixotic decision to resign. In a front-page interview, she tells the paper it was because “ethics complaints and politically ambitious state legislators would have been paralyzing.” A companion piece gives voice to the important notion that public records and ethics laws exist for a good reason.

Interestingly, as though to note that there is something more important than gubernatorial psychodramas, the ADN Web site is carrying a piece on the progress of corruption charges against executives of Veco Corp., who are cooperating with federal prosecutors. Worth reading.
