    I saw this story on another forum, along with an editorial by the person doing the posting blaming Alaska's governor for the situation.

    Naturally, I thought of the resident Alaskan on this forum, Bunz.

    Rather than just PM him, I decided to post it on this forum to see what the residents here might think of it.

    Is there a food crisis in rural Alaska, or is the story exaggerated?

    Can the governor be faulted for the situation?

    What do you think?

    those prices are just crazy, but then It cant be cheap to get food to all those places as well.
