Dream or Nightmare? Ketchikan's
Bridge to Nowhere
By Robert D. Warner
February 16, 2006
In a recent SitNews Viewpoint, Patrick Branco talks about "a
bridge to possibilities." He compares this bridge
to the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco
during the 1930's.
I suggest that Mr. Branco and others who are so eager to
build this bridge at the expense of all of us move
to San Francisco. They can then pay the toll and drive
across the bridge every day.
They can enjoy paying additional high taxes necessary for
bridge maintenance. By the way, folks in San Francisco have
one of the highest tax rates in the country. What
about their high crime rate, air pollution, water pollution,
noise, traffic, drugs, illegal immigration, and excessively high
cost of living? How is the fishing in San Francisco Bay?
Dream on................, but this dream seems more like a nightmare
to me! Ketchikan is better the way it is
without a bridge.
