That every man, woman, and child that lives in the State of Alaska recieves a check from the State, based on their oil exports. $2000 per person in 2000, a little over $900 per person in 2005. What a deal. Why can't we do that down here in the lower States? We all have oil also. A guy that I work with father is getting 7 million dollars a month, just in royalty. Hard to believe. Roy
