Church Vandals 

Churches are vandalized and left with a message to praise the FSM

When it comes to cowardly acts, vandalism is right up there with kicking kittens. It doesn't take a lot of guts to tag a building with a can of Krylon. So we can't help but wonder what was going through the minds of the gutless, kitten kickers who recently targeted a pair of churches on opposite ends of town, tagging the Westside Church and the eastside Christian Life Center. The vandals left a message for the churches, "Praise the FSM" in reference to the Flying Spaghetti Monster, a religious parody originally conceived of by an OSU physics student. While there is plenty of room for debate about the role and influence of organized religion in modern society, particularly in the political realm, there's no better way to undermine your critique than to couch your message in a crime. WTF.

  • The Other Half of the Yoga Equation

    The Source Issue 45 (Nov. 10) contained wonderful information about the forms of yoga offered in our vicinity. Most of the information covered pertained to the socially enjoyable forms of yoga enjoyed by the folks who use yoga mats and bendy posturing as they concentrate on improving their blissful breathing techniques. These physical forms of yoga are the beautiful compliments to the mental, mindful and meditative forms of yoga that balance the larger yoga (yogic) equation. Yoga is basically a non-denominational practice aimed at balancing the physical (body) existence with the meta-physical (mind) reality. The ensuing mind-body balance creates the union required for an increased "understanding" (consciousness) of the "living experience."

  • Walden's Corporate Servitude

    In the time-honored American tradition of peaceful civil disobedience, I am proud to be one of eight Central Oregon citizens arrested on December 5 in Congressman Greg Walden's Bend office. At our January 26 trial we plan to present a compelling defense. This act of dissent follows years of futile attempts to encourage the Congressman to hold open, unscripted town meetings accessible to a majority of his constituents. The Congressman has grown so suspicious of impromptu encounters with ordinary citizens that on Saturday he required a Bend Police Department intervention that enabled him to enter the Water Project meeting at the Chamber of Commerce through the back door. (Greg, we are nonviolent people who believe that democracy thrives on open dialogue and transparency; there is no reason to avoid us.)

    I had to respond to "What's Wrong with Siri," (News, 1-4) since Apple's Siri isn't the problem. Three hours before I read, "What's wrong with Siri," I went to a store in town and complimented the cashier that this was the nicest "dollar" store I had ever been in.
