Of all the anti-road arguments I have ever encountered, the most far-fetched was published in the Juneau Empire last week.
Rich Moniak argues that pent-up travel demand does not exist in Juneau. He says that, “Alaskans aren’t like our down-south cousins and residents in the Lynn Canal corridor bear little resemblance to the urban characters in Anchorage.”
Where does he get this psychic knowledge of other people’s disinterest in travel?
If Moniak is correct, then why do Juneau residents snap up half-price Alaska Airlines PFD deals as fast as they can?
