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.
