Palingates vs. Politicalgates
No - I'm not about to take sides. Earlier in the month, the Palincentric blog, Palingates, had a parting of the ways between Regina - on one hand - and Patrick & Kathleen - on the other hand. One Alaska blog certainly took sides. This one isn't. Not yet, probably not ever. I've had great relationships with Patrick, Kathleen and Regina.
Palingates remains on the blogroll as an "honorary AK blog." I'll wait a couple of weeks to see how Politicalgates, Patrick and Kathleen's new blogspot niche works. I wish them, as well as Regina, all the luck and positive vibes in the world.
