I recently contacted our three representatives in Washington, D.C., about the recent controversy involving immigration and the separation of children from their families at the southern border. I have done this maybe half a dozen times in last dozen or so years about different issues.

I always received a reply from Sen. Ted Stevens' office, never contacted Sen. Mark Begich, got auto-responses from Sen. Lisa Murkowski, some assistance on an issue from her dad's office, and this year, an auto-response from Sen. Dan Sullivan's office. And, in a continuation of his unblemished record, no response at all yet again from Congressman Don Young's office. That's perfection, I guess.
