I, too, would enjoy an appropriate explanation.
Just as Mr. Ellis says "Perhaps an appropriate explanation
could be forthcoming in terms of the background as to this effort
to destroy economic benefits for Ketchikan and Southern Southeastern."
Only I would like to have him clarify how a road crossing Gravina
,a road that is destroying the larder of many people, and is
and will be, virtually inaccessible to most people of Alaska,
is in any way, shape, or form, an economic benefit for Ketchikan,
or any other Alaskan town whether they are in Southeast or not?
Mr. Ellis appears to believe that the mere fact gravel is poured
over muskeg, and trees are cut down, magically the overall economy
of the town of Ketchikan will prosper. I guess his slogan is
Product is our most important Progress.
