I wanted to respond to the former LAB pilot's letter of Aug. 2. I am a former Juneauite and very much appreciate the Juneau Empire Online. The monthly subscription is minimal compared to the paper subscription for out-of-towners. There is no recycling to deal with, and I can surf through the archived editions.
Perhaps if you find an article which strikes you as hard as this one did, you may wish to subscribe for that period of time. It would be an opportunity to catch up on news.
