Economically speaking, tourism is a good thing. Unlike, say, oil extraction or coal mining, tourism is a non-extractive, renewable industry. At its best, tourism can provide local jobs while highlighting – and even helping to preserve and protect – natural resources. At its worst, tourism can strain public safety services and put pressure on a deteriorated rural road network.

I was attending a birthday party the other day when I met a friend and supporter of my opponent in the last election. He was, by his own admission, shocked to see that I was a caring, decent, compassionate human being. (In the moment we met, I was a mom attempting to prevent my daughters from demolishing the French fry tray.) He and I joked about the fact that I didn’t, as he’d initially suspected, come equipped with devil’s horns, cloven hoofs, and a forked tail.
