You really haven't spent much time watching tourists have you . Make em' pay $10 a pop and the line would be around the block in a short time. If it is expensive, it just has to be a good tour don't cha' know.

They tried to protest the moose hunt a couple of times until the moose hunters threatened to shoot them. Then when they found out the Wardens were not going to protect them they decided it probably wasn't such a great idea to harass people with loaded high power rifles.

That's exactly what animal-rights types - and throw in the gun-ban crowd too - need: Line 'em up and SHOOT 'em!

When the tourists come to town, serve 'em "the other white meat"...

So there is going to be nekkid people with makeup to look like lobster, sitting in the old jail for photos?

I think that spraying latex paint onto the models would be fun, making them look like lobsters.
