Ketchikan becomes a large Petri dish in the summer....
By Robert Glenn

Well the people voted for it to be even a larger one when another cruise ship carrying 4000 more people will make a stop at the Ketchikan's new dock.

I guess the price of catering to the tourism industry is risk of disease and traffic. But without it where would Ketchikan be? Enough people fight for the industry that they are obviously willing to accept all the goodies that come with it. Can't cry when this is the chosen way of the town.
