It was never about the 'facts
By Robert Thompson

Well Mr. Hanger is expressing his opinions again without regard to information or facts. In a Sitnews' letter he says:

"Gas prices continue to fall, $1.69 a gallon now, everywhere but Southeast.. The gougers are despicable; more despicable are the gutless politicians who lack both the fortitude and the concern to do anything about it. Another example of Sarah Palin's "reform" standards?"

Yet in the same edition of Sitnews read:

"At the direction of Governor Sarah Palin, the Department of Law began an investigation into the pricing of gasoline in Alaska. The investigation was initiated in AUGUST," (Caps added for emphasis.)

Will Mr. Hanger now apologize to our Governor and say something positive about her and other 'gutless politicians'? I doubt it, it was never about the 'facts' it was about his need to vent his internal 'bile'-ness onto the rest of us.
