Rep. Don Young's Smoking Pot
By Robert McRoberts
July 10, 2005
Recently Don Young made the comment
that all who opposed the bridge are smoking pot. Just how did
he come up with that scenario? Did Rep. Young have the government
spend a lot of time doing back ground checks on every one who
opposed this bridge to nowhere? Or is this just what Rep. Young
says about every one that disagrees with him? Well, I feel Rep.
Young needs to stop and smoke a joint so he can think about how
long this is going to take to build and how a borough government
that is close to broke is going to spend more money to take care
of more area. He's just old and bull headed. I really think he's
ready to retire - maybe he's just got to do one more big job
so we can name this bridge after him. (The Don Young Bridge
There is no reason for Ketchikan to start defacing the view almost
everyone enjoys so much. All the property values will go down.
Our taxes are going to go up. But yet we need to expand for all
these businesses that are waiting to come to Ketchikan.
I wrote a letter asking about
these other properties above Point Higgins that the Borough wanted
the fire station out of the way for access to. But no one
has the courage to tell us. By the way, just who is waiting to
come and develop there?
I want to keep this short so I will close by saying the
only thing that is going to save Ketchikan is a road out so we
can be the first city and the gateway to Alaska again. The sooner
that gets done the better, because time is money and for all
you waste on this thing the more it will take from us. So just
get us a better ferry that has no cabin in the middle so big
loads can get on it easier.
So there I go again giving my opinion! It's better than whining
about not having any money when I came back from vacation or
how fast we are driving. We all know if it's dark and rainy we
need to slow down.
And if you're on South Tongass,
how do you fall asleep on that road?
