An Overpopulation of Stupidity 

I think it's great that we are all having democratic discourse regarding the geese problem across our town's newspapers and media outlets.

I think it's great that we are all having democratic discourse regarding the geese problem across our town's newspapers and media outlets. On both sides of the issue, all seem to agree on the fact that the geese are largely here in unnatural numbers because people feed them. Numerous articles and letters to the editor have been written asking people to adhere to common sense (that comes to most of us naturally) and not feed the ducks and geese. This, along with the letter to the editor last week by Ms. Schulz highlighting how 2 ignoramus parents helped their kids to catch frogs at a lake and drag them home in zip lock bags, made me realize that most of the people who would feed geese or suffocate wildlife in zip lock bags are either illiterate, stupid, or both and unfortunately, aren't reading newspapers and getting the message. While I was personally in favor of thinning the geese herd, perhaps a better and more efficient campaign might just be to kill the dumb people.

  • 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.
