An interested citizen sent me an appreciative email, recently. She suggested and requested I broaden my scope of subject matter to include national and international issues. I thought about it and wondered if Biden, Pelosi (Nancy and Paul), Taiwan, the border, inflation and the beltway should be included or even belong in The Triplicate. I think not.
There’s certainly no shortage of excellent, highly-respected voices who articulately speak on national issues. What more words of cogent wisdom could I offer? The Triplicate is the local voice. One is challenged to recognize credible competition to report what’s going on in Del Norte County and across the North State better than Country Media and The Triplicate. Onerous legislation passed in Sacramento, autographed by Gavin Newsom is painfully brought to our mailboxes every Friday. Of course, there are plenty of national stories which impact Crescent City. The disastrous open, lawless southern border the president has green-lighted in welcoming an estimated two million illegal aliens (and future voters) to the United States these past 12 months, is just one of the tragic realities citizens read about. Rumors abound clandestine busses are depositing these illegal aliens into rural communities across America, like Crescent City. This kind of subject matter, though distressing, is the exception not the rule.
