Mr. Thrush, I wouldn't mind riding the ferry if 1. it wasn't so expensive and 2. I would be able to get to the airport even in bad weather. The bridge should have been built but where it actually landed is of no real importance. We should have had the opportunity to have it.

My biggest gripe is that once the bridge earmarks were taken off the governor decided that it would be better spent up on the mainland and we as Southern Southeast Alaska never saw a penny of it. Since they spent all that money to do the studies on it don't you think that they should have gotten us something that was a little more passenger friendly and FREE with all that money that was supposed to be down here?
