In an end-of-the-road bar of an Alaskan commercial fishing port, patrons follow a tradition of attaching their cash to the ceiling. Almost all banknotes have personal notes appended. The patrons are careful not to cover the two portraits previously painted on the ceiling, both of which are of pirates but one could be Jesus. I'm not sure it makes any difference.
