Sara's News Roundup 8/29/10

Note: Please excuse the open links - my right shoulder sustained a minor injury, and I'm not up to linking seventeen titles left-handed. Blog posting will be light until my shoulder heals. If you're a GLBTQ Alaskan and have something to say about local or national news and events, I'm seeking guest posts and topic suggestions, and appreciate your help in keeping the blog active. Thanks. - Ed.
