Letters to the Editor

Letter: Coats off, please

The photo of Alaska Federation of Natives convention at the Carlson Center in Fairbanks showed delegates seated, wearing their heavy overcoats. Is this what Charles Wohlforth means when he was talking about Alaska “provinciality” in his recent opinion series printed by ADN?

Whether this is a result of not adequate heating in the room or a lack of the special place where one can leave his/her overcoats or just some Alaska habit not to dress appropriately for the occasion, it is unfortunately very common even for the audience attending theaters or concerts.

Maybe some refinement is finally due?
