Response to a inaccuraciesa pointed out last week
Just as we are preparing to leave Skagway for the season and end my volunteer assignment to send in short stories to CCW, I was taken by surprise by Becky Cahoon's hostile reaction expressed in a letter to the editor .

you're a jerk and ALL of skagway knows it. We're sick of you.

Apparently, this Barry person does not live there, but only comes for the season. Right? Well, even I, as a total outsider, would know better than to throw mud in the local faces! Sounds as if Mr. Barry might be a very young, inexperienced person. Am I right?
I was in Skagway as a very grateful tourist this summer, but I knew where my place was as a tourist, and I respected the rights of the locals. I grew up in a very small farming community in Texas; the rules are the same.

Barry IS a summer loiterer. But no, he is not young. He's an old, arrogant, hypocritical Brit who thinks he knows everything about everything and gets butt hurt if anyone tries to correct him. Thanks for seeing it how it is.

Sounds like you enjoyed your visit to Skagway. I hope you did.

I live and work in Skagway. Smedley acts like he owns the town and annoys everyone.
