According to Yahoo!, some Alaskans don't like Steve Earle:
"...Earle's appearance at the Southeast Alaska State Fair in Haines is drawing protest. Earle has been the subject of angry letters and paid newspaper commentary in the Chilkat Valley News since early May. Letter writers have complained that Earle's music has un-American or Marxist undertones. Some have said he's not right for the nonprofit family fair in Haines, and have called for a boycott."
North to the future!
