Not everyone is happy with my new companion blog The Brig, which offers daily reports of crime and bad behavior from across Alaska's commercial fishing world.
One image conscious commercial fisherman complains: "I read this thing and it is apparent that the AK commfish industry is a sham and that we're all a bunch of crooks and drunks."
I can sympathize with anyone who sees The Brig as poor public relations for fishermen and cannery workers.
On the other hand, what I'm posting is no different from the police blotter in any local newspaper. For some reason, crime reports captivate readers.
Having said that, be sure to check out today's posting on The Brig.
It's a classic.
