New Mexico does have a sterling history of sending outstanding members to Congress. Perhaps this columnist has also shown competence from time to tome. However, Melanie Stansbury was an aid to Maria Cantwell in the Senate. Not Patty Murray.

You are correct in that Ms. Stansbury worked for Maria Cantwell in the Senate and I have asked the editor for a correction. Your comment about my competence, however, is unnecessarily sarcastic. Best not to insult someone's ability without reviewing a bit more of their work, Mr. Cook. However accurate you are, you are also impolite. Thank you.
