He is stuck at what he calls the “Jay Hammond International Airport.” That’s what a lot of us have begun calling the Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage.

Yesterday afternoon, Alaska’s progressive bloggers responded to the growing winter crisis in the lower Yukon villages, most notably Emmonak. As word spread of the looming food and fuel crisis there, we decided to get our reporter in there, raise funds, and tell the true story of Alaska bloggers and how we help each other in the Far North.
