This is everyday people.
I know exactly what you're talking about. I'm down in little VT. Between the discovery channel (should rename it the Alaskan channel based on what I've heard from my TV fanatic friends) and now the news media since Palin is McCain's running mate, wow, looks like a stampede up may happen...and everyone will either get rich commercially fishing or will save the overpopulated wolves from being wiped out by the fish and game department. There's a mix of people looking to get rich and animal rights fruitcakes on the way up. Most will likely go back home.

I'm thinking of re-writing a song ("Tie Me Kangaroo") and centering it around Alaska.

Kiss me tree when I'm Free, G.
Kiss me tree when I'm Free.
It's OK with Me, G
Kiss me tree when I'm Free.

Saddle me moose, but not loose, Goose
Saddle me moose, but not loose
He just a big Appaloose, Goose
Saddle me moose, but not loose
