Moving the southern terminus
By Neil Gray

I agree with Doug Barry. Moving the southern terminus of the Alaska Marine Highway System from Bellingham into Candada is nuts. What is Olson drinking up there in Soldotna? With the push to require passports to get into Canada (and Mexico) it'll make traveling on the ferry system to Alaska a real pain in the seat. Lisa Murkowski informed me there's something in the works to adapt that passport plan into a more traveler friendly system, but it still will be an inconvenience.
