Reading Sunday’s “Congressional Q&A” had me spilling hot coffee as I read Don Young’s statement that COVID-19 response is his “top priority” as the congressman for all Alaska. What a joke. Wasn’t it Don dismissively referring to the pandemic a few months back as the “beer virus?” I’m sure Don Young is well known to every Congressman by name on Capitol Hill — as the tired old blowhard whom Alaska keeps inexplicably electing over and over again.
