A Troubling Commentary 


To The Wandering Eye,

I read your "resignation" column with great sadness. Being only marginally computer literate, it never occurred to me that online anonymous critics were harassing you. It is truly a sad statement of our times when a professional journalist with such well-thought-out opinions, humor, satire skills and integrity must resign. Having recently seen The Social Network, I am very concerned about America's future.

As H. Bruce Miller pointed out, it is easy for people to create their own reality based on "facts" they choose to (glean) from the Internet. I do not understand why so many will bare their soul, and often more, on Facebook and then be too cowardly to identify themselves when disagreeing with a columnist, e.g., H. Bruce Miller! Perhaps they could learn from the Dalai Lama. He once said the path to enlightenment is in listening for the truth, not in declaring it.

I will miss your column and am not afraid to sign my name.

  • DO NOT SPIT ON MY CAR

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

  • THE SOURCE ROCKS, BUT 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' DOESN'T

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
