Progress is the keyword

For fear of stepping on toes, I agree whole heartedly with Mr.
Rick Watson. What people are saying about "The Bridge To
Nowhere" I feel is totally wrong. Progress is the keyword
here. Think of the jobs this bridge will generate plus the fact
that lives will be saved in getting from town to the island.
We live on Prince of Wales and back in the day we had to go
to Craig or Klawock by boat or airplane, and some lives were
lost, now that we have a road to the outlying communities there
hasn't been any deaths, so there is a good side to everything.
I tried to stay quiet for a long time especially when that term
about the bridge to nowhere stuck in my craw. Thanks for letting
me voice my opinion even tho I don't live in Ketchikan.
