Congressman Rob Bishop believes the United States government should have no say if Italy ships nuclear waste to Utah. What was he doing while he was teaching social studies in Box Elder county all those years? Did he ever sneak a peek at the U.S. Constitution? Doesn't the federal government regulate commerce between nations?

Of course, I forgot. He was a former lobbyist for Envirocare (EnergySolutions) and has received $20,000 in campaign contributions from them over the years. Hats off to EnergySolutions. Last year they convinced the state Legislature to bow out of the approval process for nuclear waste shipment and the governor let it slime by without his signature. Now they have a spokesman on the federal level. Amazing what money can buy.

Thank heaven for Jim Matheson.
