    Here are links to a couple of articles of those living in a small community in the far north of Alaska.

    They underscore what it means to be on the margins of urban life.

    There are many other stories to be read at High Country News...well worth a read.

    I would love to see one of those "Internet Death Threat" SnowFlakes, fly all the way out to Gambell, Alaska, and look that Kid in the eye, and repeat the Threat... Now THAT would be worth watching....
    As for that scumbag, Paul Watson, he deserves to be in Federal Prision, and will be if he ever sets foot in the USA, again... The guy is an A$$hole Pirate....

    Unlikely to ever happen. Getting to Gambell in itself, may be the death of him. Mostly the kind of people who make those kinds of threats are scared of their own shadows....they would be the early and easy meat in 'The Grey'

    I dare say the whole TOWN, would take the SnowFlake to task, in a heartbeat... There isn't a lot of sympathy for that kind of thinking out in Gambell.... One of my neighbors is a reTIRED Teacher from Gambell... and he knows that kid, well, as well as the whole extended family...

    Yeah, just thinking about all those little naugas that gave up their skins for the foot stools in the snowflakes garages.

    Interesting....instead of discussing the folk of Gambell and how they survive in a hostile environment, most of the discussion seems to directed at the culture war tribes that our monkey tree mob seem to despise. Why am I not surprised?

    A good example of circular reasoning....This topic and others like it would still exist independently of the Right V Left, "real American" V "snowflake" culture wars......compared to the folks of Gambell....most Survival Monkeys would be "snowflakes".
