One would think that the good citizens of Anchorage — especially in times of global weather change and generally warming winters — would, by now, know how to properly plow the streets, thereby enabling commerce, city services (garbage and fire), and schools to continue with minimal disruption.
Why the breakdown in competency? If Anchorage can’t keep the streets passable, what does that say about the rest of us here in the Lower 48? Maybe it’s time to start refocusing on the basics of local government.
