The AP post deadline snuck up on me. Without considering the consequences, I slapped up the most charismatic story on the AP Alaska News list. It included a picture of an adorable polar bear cub and told the story of an Alaskan bearlet who deported to the East Coast.
Thank you, Ashleigh Strange, for letting me know this morning that Extreme Alaska already posted that story! As much as I wanted to keep my name attached to the story of the cute cub, classmate Brix Hahn posted the story first. I took my version of the AP story down and replaced it with a less heartwarming AP post about an Iditarod lawyer trying to sue PETA.
The moral of the story is to read all of Extreme Alaska every day.
