Last night at Inn on the Park, WCMC caught up with Rep. John Nygren (R-89) and had some conversation about mining and water. He begins by telling us we have nothing to worry about, but by the end, we are told we have good reason to worry.
I believe him.
UPDATE: Upon arriving at the Capitol today, a friend who had been at the Inn on the Park before I arrived reported witnessing Nygren, Mary Williams, Bill Williams and other Republican legislators talking about the nutcase who gave the Natural Resources Committee the fingers and how she has this wacky idea that the water goes under Lake Superior and to her well on the island. He said he was uncomfortable with the cocky tone of their conversation. “You don’t put money before people,” my friend said. He merely went up to one of them, he thought was Nygren, and pointed to the lone blue felt water drop pinned to his shirt and asked, “Do you know what this is?” Nygren said, “No” and my friend responded, “I didn’t think so” and walked away.
