Curious George

Another pitiful, self-absorbed column by “Bored Georgeman” in The Union this morning:
It is getting boring to write about it, because it is such a recurring theme:

Some “Cliff notes”:

1. The supes and civic leaders were leaders, not followers, when it came to the Bridgeport Bridge Repair. Read the response to “Bored” from the “Save Our Bridge Campaign Committee.”

2. George did not correct his misreading of the results of the Keene report from last week’s column. Details here.

3. Of course “Bored” isn’t going to run for District 2 Supe. And no he wouldn’t be a viable candidate.

“Bored”‘s column is pablum for the aging declining demographic of The Union and has nothing to do with what’s exciting about our towns.


The Union still hasn’t found a replacement for Heidi Hall’s column.

    Pablum…correct. You don’t have to intellectually chew it, you just swollow it as it’s presented. Bland, mediocre and flavorless…like The Union

    The column’s biggest defender is the creepy, nasty troll on Todd Juvinall’s blog. That sums it up well. A real “growth engine” for our local newspaper. Nope. Just podunk.

    I’m almost ready to say anyone but Scofield but that applies to Boardman, too. We need someone that will listen to all parties in District 2 to make it a thriving community. It seems to be stagnant or dying at present. Many of my neighbors pay their sales tax to Placer County because we’re listed as Auburn. Most shop there as well.
