RE:The State Jet

The last time I checked, Palmer was still in our time zone.
If this has changed, I missed the memo. People are flapping
about "our" jet because it was deceptively purchased.
The people voted and then were ignored. I vote, therefore I
The only "anti" Murkowski thing I equate with the jet
is every time he used it for personal gain at the cost of the
State. For his final send off he flew himself South for the
Winter; including a trip to New York for a family birthday party.
Every time I hear about cousin Frank and his toy, I picture
him rolling down the runway with his cheeks pressed to the window.
I am happy to hear we are getting rid of the plane. I have ridden
in both, the old "ghetto" King Air, and the new "bling-bling"
jet and "Frank"ly, I like like the King Air better.
Ms. Allen shouldn't worry about a jet landing in her town, but
lets think about everyone in the other time zone(s)? that deserve
their Governor's attention too. Planes are tools and tools should
be selected by which one will do the best job. That's why most
planes in SE have floats and planes up North have skis.
