Letters: Is representative democracy dead?

AnchorageDecember 1, 2013 

Asked about the tennis brouhaha, Lindsey Holmes texts that she is not available for comment. (Nov. 20, Page A-14.) Are we back in Sarah Palin-land? Can the people we elect to represent us just quit, or be “not available?” Is representative democracy circling the drain? Should this worry us?
