So Captain Zero went on a gratis cruise and now supports the rollback on water quality standards the people of Alaska insisted on. Peter Micciche, senator from Soldotna, has been courting Norwegian Cruise Lines in hopes of securing hordes of slap happy seniors for his river town.
Both men are prime examples of what happens when you let the fox watch over the hen house. They have sold Alaskans out to special interests. Ask the small store owners in Juneau, Skagway or Ketchikan -- who are forced to pay enormous kickbacks to the cruise lines -- if their interests have been served by the industry. And get ready for an odiferous surprise when you filet your next king.
