A journalist observes life in the far north.
I want to explain about the black helicopters post, because I noticed there’s been a lot of hits on that post. I re-read it, and I am thinking now that anyone who doesn’t know me may think that I am crazy.
There are more than a few paranoids living in Fairbanks, who call authorities complaining that the federal government is watching them from black helicopters hovering over their houses. The post was a reference to those complaints.
