My last trip to Alaska
By Peter James

Congratulations, I won't be coming back to visit Alaska. I have had it with greedy Alaska communities taxing tourists. At least the cruise ships provide a useful service other than taxing oil, taxing tourists....

Alaskans = TAXES.

I gather since Alaska gets $2 in federal income tax for every $1 they send in, and they tax the oil I buy so much they can give residents $1000 just for breathing.... Give me a break... I gather you will be taxing e-mail next..

Isn't Ketchikan the place they were going to build a million dollar bridge for 50 people?

Good night
