HELP?

Not quite sure to make of today's My Word piece by Denver Nelson. He lists a number of things around Humboldt County he seems to find confusing. In closing, he notes that our Congressman, Mike Thompson, has been appointed to the House Intelligence Committee.

Not sure why he points that out. Is that supposed to be deemed as odd as he finds the other items he lists, or is he suggesting Mike Thompson is supposed to be here in Humboldt trying to work on all these supposed odd problems? If the latter, what exactly does Dr. Nelson think Thompson is supposed to do?

Seems to me most of the things Dr. Nelson mentions are local issues, not federal. At least they're supposed to be.

I'm sure that guy thinks everything he said is tied together by a theme.

I think all the political bigwigs from Humboldt county are "odd".

I think he's laughing that the hippies are eating their own, and then saying PALCO wasn't their fault, and at least not being very hippish about it.

Well, Palco wasn't their fault. Even Palco employees will agree with that.

Maybe he finds it odd that one of the congresscritters that went to Iraq in the fall of 2002 to suck up to Saddam

has a seat on the "Intelligence" committee.

As is the usual case with Denver,he's half right and doesn't know it. He has the classic little man complex which he hides under the quize of I'm a doctor so I know all. Well as usual he's half rihgt again. Whats worse is the T/S not requiring a rewrite.

I wonder if he studied medicine with the same zeal which he's applied to English composition.

He appears to be nuttier than a Xmas cheeseball.

I hate cheesballs. Ate part of one in San Francisco last time we were down there.

Dr. Denver Nelson, a retired Neuro-surgeon is an intelligent good person and cares about the issues. I believe he has a good sense of humor, too.

Carol Ann: I apologize, and my comment was out of line, but please let Dr. Nelson know that he should not write without supervision.

Although I often disagree with her,I have to agree with Ann.7:45pm that Carol Ann blogs with class. Don't worry so much ,you didn't cause all the worlds ills. Dennis mayo

Carol Ann is another clueless member of the Humboldt Democratic Central Committee who should be voted out at the next opportunity. (Of course, she was never voted in by the public in the first place! She was put there by her fellow party insiders, just like Dennis Mayo and his Republican Central Committee colleagues)

Yes , oh brilliant one. We are all human, therefore inadequate.

Hey 4:29 I'm not surprised that I get some attacks but where in the world did that one come from and why? If you've got a beef with me I'm happy to discuss it with you.If you had the conviction of your opinions you would claim them. As I said earlier I disagree with Carol Ann and the Dem.CC a lot,so much so that, even though I will still participate when and where I can in the Dem.party locally,I felt compeled to change my party status. That doesn't mean I feel Carol Ann is anything but a lady. Whom ever you are 4:29 try to carry your own water.Hey it might not be the easy way but it The Cowboy Way. Dennis Mayo

21,500 more troops sent to their deaths/dismemberments in Iraq?

Not even close dude. GW's no more a cowboy than you are. Respecting your Mon and Dad always,looking out for little kids and teaching them responsibility,growing good food for your community even when many call you names and try to destroy your living,standing up for your right to bitch even when I don't agree with you,now thats the cowboy way. If you want to bitch then bitch. Don't confuse your issues.When you get up every mornimg rain or shine,sick or well,24/7 and feed & doctor your critters before your first coffee and then again after a days work as late at night as it might take, well then after you do this for years and years then you get back to me. Till then dude you need to tread lightly on us cowboys and if you can't do that at least own your comments. Thats The Cowboy Way! Dennis
