All or nothing?
By Jos "GUS" Govaars VI


December 12, 2005

Just last week I was in Anchorage and had the chance to visit some friends who work in Juneau for elected officials and basically they are "in the know". When I mentioned the "all or nothing" funding requests regarding the Bridge, I was told, "I suppose you guys down there want nothing."

Personally, I don't want "nothing", and I think we should make our voices heard. Just in case, if the bridge doesn't go, the responsible thing would be to have a backup plan. But I suppose having a plan in place in the first place is asking too much.

Go figure, no plan, anywhere...

This is a disturbing trend.
