The past few years Alaska has been famous for "The Bridge
to Nowhere or A road to Nowhere". Can tell it's almost
election when certain topics resurface. Why is it that paople
make noise about the same issues before election? Like it's
going to do any good. So the bridge didn't go through, big deal,
not everyone wants "change" but will only talk about
it for a few more decades. Maybe the next generation will actually
do something about it. Sometimes next year the Waldon Point
Road will start its final phase and be paved, to nowhere. The
Waldon Point Road project is funded by the military. While on
the subject of nowhere how about a faster ferry boat to "nowhere"
Uncle Sam or Aunty Sarah? Can you spare a few million dollars
Someday roads and bridges will
actually go somewhere, like the islands in Southeast will connect
to the mainland. *Someday* most likely not in (our) lifetime.
Now days we just talk about change because it's easier said than
done... cheaper, too.
