Bridge to nowhere
By Ken Leland


April 1, 2007

As a footnote to the background on how the phrase "Bridge To Nowhere" came to put Ketchikan on the political map, you may be interested to read an article published on the St. Petersburg, Fla Times online site by Bill Adair on April Fool's day will give you an idea of how it came to pass that our town got held up for ridicule as the Pork capital of the United States, and subsequently brought down the Republican Party's rule of Congress. Interesting stuff, regardless of how you stand on the subject.
