It sounds dumb, but I literally learned all I know about rank & command structure from spending 3 days just killing time at an air-base with NCO's and specialists waiting for meals etc. The exercise was a fine story, but all the down time around the embed was the real education.

V tangential to the "2 to Tango" kerfuffle, but: I flew to Australia in a C-17 w then-Capt. Spears & a bunch of 4-25 soldiers for an airborne training mission in 2015, only member of local AK press corps to go. Not an easy sell to my editors. But invaluable reporting education.

In my professional life I report on dog mushing. But in my personal life I eat a heckload of ice-cream.

My least favorite feeling at work (besides guilt, shame and hunger) is when you're working on a story in the newsroom and your colleague is on the phone having a phone conversation about a significantly MORE interesting story.

Temperatures soared more than 20 degrees Fahrenheit above the March average in many parts of Alaska, a result of disappearing sea ice and a wobbly jet stream

I think at the time this was a plausible claim on my part, but it may have subsequently spurred musher twitter into a more robust state of being.

Prop 3 failed. I don't know why. There wasn't any organized opposition. My guess is that people read the fine print and, after a pretty big school bond up ballot, decided capital improvements for bathrooms and a roof at a cemetery was an extravagance.

These are the proposed alcohol tax results so far. Frankly I am surprised, not just that it went down, but that it looks like a pretty decent margin by which voters said no to a 5% tax on alcohol to fund substance abuse/homelessness/public safety issues.

All these results are unofficial, and definitely more votes will come in over the next few days (bc of Vote By Mail). But most are close enough that they seem certain. Really low voter turnout in a lot of districts, and area-wide <19% turnout.
