Round-trip ticket to Gaza anyone?

Thank for the informative article about the Lake County Commissioners’ letter to President Joe Biden. I would like to thank the Lake County Commissioners for reaching out to our President with concerns about lake levels on Flathead Lake.

I'm exceptionally thankful for the way you went about it, meeting with the Tribal Council the same day you sent the letter, but never mentioning one word about it. Thank you for giving us a fine example of MINO (Montanan in Name Only) behavior. With behavior like that one has to wonder, are all of you related to Hunter Biden, Bill Clinton or Governor Greg Gianforte?

I'm so thankful for all of this I am putting forth a standing offer to fly all of the Lake County Commissioners round-trip first class to any city in Gaza or any city on the front line in the Ukraine. Once there, you'll be able to tell the citizens of said places your woeful tale of not being able to put your boat in the water in Flathead Lake last summer. No doubt they'll be lining up by the thousands to offer you condolences and a shoulder to cry on with your first world plight and problems.

I also wish to extend this offer to every Flathead Lake boat owner, and every Montana elected official who continues to complain about the lack of water in Flathead Lake last summer.
