At least cruising is looking positive for Alaska's economy, oil is dismal. I keep hammering away at our politicians that we need to open up more of our scenic wonders for visitation. The visitor hot spots are close to saturation, for instance, Ketchikan, Juneau, Glacier Bay, Skagway and Denali. So many up here got complacent for way too long with the black gold revenues believing the fat days were here to stay, hard to get back to reality. They keep hoping for another, Klondike, Prudhoe Bay or Kennicott Copper find, some I believe think the tooth fairy should even help.
