PETERSBURG, AK New York Times columnist Gail Collins was in Petersburg this week covering the U.S. Senate race between Democrat Scott McAdams and Republican Joe Miller. Collins covers politics for the Times and has worked for the newspaper since 1995. In 2001, she became the first woman ever appointed editor of the Times editorial page. Joe Viechnicki spoke to Collins Thursday following the public forum with the two U.S. Senate candidates and started out with a question about what drew her to cover the Alaskan contest.
