I hope the conservative people of Nebraska who pay their own bills and have pride in their independent values were watching last night's vote in Congress.
I hope they never forget that McCook's native son, Ben Nelson, had an opportunity to stop this nightmare but chose to sell out for the Husker Kickback that proud Nebraskans did not want.
Dick Trail took a lot of heat for his comments, but lo and behold, he recognized a spade as a spade.
I feel the citizens of McCook were a little hasty when they renamed the airport to "Ben Nelson Regional Airport." Instead, they should have renamed the social services office as "Ben Nelson Health Care Handouts."
Every time I drive by the airport sign, it is going to renew my efforts to help plan his retirement party.
