Name the bridge after Don
By Patrick Jirschele

The Borough wants to name
the airport after Don Young. That is just wrong. The bridge should
be named for him. After all it is his legacy. He is the one who
stuck his neck out and received the Golden Fleece Award. He is
the one who has gotten all the bad press and has been the brunt
of bad jokes. Even Jon Stewart, of The Daily Show, made fun of
We are the gateway to Alaska and the bridge will be one of the
first structures that will be seen when arriving. Because of
it's clearance it will be in the class of great bridges such
as Lion's Gate in Vancouver, West Gate in Melbourne, Hell Gate
in New York, and of course Golden Gate in San Francisco.
I propose the new bridge be named Don Young Gate.
