In reading the recent Ketchikan Daily News article on anticipated shipping of a natural resource, water, from Boca De Quara followed by a second article focusing on the opposition to the endeavor; typically the usual case of anti-anything resource development, leap out in vocal opposition without any details of the concept, none, just a knee jerk reaction to a perceived capitalist project.

It is fair to say that had this bunch of self serving environmentalist - in cahoots with like thinking governmental employees who demonstrate their usual bias, contrary to the concept of neutrality expected by a governmental agency - been in existence when Queen Isabella made the decision to support Christopher Columbus's efforts to explore, he would never made it across the Mediterranean, much less to the Atlantic ocean!
