Letter: Compare Lewis and Clark to Congress



Columbian columnist John Laird described how he likes to “Ponder the lessons of Lewis and Clark.” As a sometimes student of Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery, I find Laird’s Oct. 2 column about the expedition’s teamwork to be an excellent statement of the dramatic history of the period (and geography) and an excellent political statement concerning how dysfunctional Congress has become in the current period of history.
