The Union’s paid weekly columnist George Boardman often maligns Nevada City. Now he is likening the Queen of the Northern Mines to Compton, south of Los Angeles, where historic riots have occurred.
I commented the other day that our son’s bike was stolen from our front porch in Nevada City. It was unfortunate. But George goes too far, including making up that I have written about “cars on blocks” in the neighborhood. I haven’t.
To be humorous, I suppose, George concludes: “You would think that he lives in Compton instead of The Queen of the Northern Mines.”
What a ridiculous remark on numerous fronts. Is hiring George a “growth strategy” for The Union?
