“I’M GLAD I’m not trying to sell lakefront property at Lake Wildwood right now,” The Union’s weekly columnist George Boardman writes in his column this week.
The background is here: “As previously reported, there are E. Coli infections that are possibly linked to the Main Beach at Lake Wildwood in Commodore Park. The Nevada County Public Health Department (NCPHD) began receiving reports of sick children last Thursday, July 27th. As of today, NCPHD has received reports of nine young children who are ill, six of whom have been hospitalized, though two of the hospitalized children have been discharged home. Three of the hospitalized children have developed Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS), which is a potentially life-threatening condition with anemia and kidney complications.”
Is this one-liner from George Boardman supposed to be a joke? I wonder if The Union Publisher Don Rogers and Editor Brian Hamilton think this is a joke. I wonder if all The Union readers who reside in Lake Wildwood think this is a joke. I wonder if the editor of the Lake Wildwood Independent, which The Union now owns, thinks this is a joke.
Some things are best left unsaid, rather than published in a weekly column. You can’t fix stupid.
For the record, “Bored Georgeman” lives in Lake of the Pines.
