To the Commission:
As a native of Seattle, I am profoundly disturbed that the Port of Seattle encourages mega cruise ships in
Puget Sound. Their waste and fuel pollute the air and water, their noise disturbs marine life—especially
our endangered orca—and disrupts the ecosystem. Mega cruise ships frequently violate regulations,
avoid paying taxes, and subject employees to poor working conditions and pay. The day visitors that
they bring add little to the economy.
Please rescind your support for mega cruise ships, which damage or destroy much that is of value and
add little.

PDF files are created with text and images are placed at an exact position on a page of a fixed size.
Web pages are fluid in nature, and the exact positioning of PDF text creates presentation problems.
PDFs that are full page graphics, or scanned pages are generally unable to be made accessible, In these cases, viewing whatever plain text could be extracted is the only alternative.
