Goodbye, Wandering Eye 


Sad to see the Wandering Eye wander off into the sunset...but I understand. Trying to stay engaged in the toxic environment of what passes for public discoursethese daysis certainly an exercise in frustration akin to beating one's head against the proverbial wall.

It's a good question to ask if our modern communication technologies have improved life in general? The evidence at this point would suggest otherwise and the real failure here is theloss of free and unbiased news sources. And you just know we are in trouble when our so-called best and brightest (Supreme Court anyone?) rule that a corporation is an individual and therefore granted all the rights, freedoms and protections under the Constitution - something the Founders hardly intended, or even envisioned.

So good people, our system of checks and balances is failing. Our government is no longer a tool of the people, rather a tool for the select few who pull the strings and are immune from accountability.What shall we do about it?

But I digress. I have thoroughly enjoyed this weekly article. More often than not it has been a voice of reason amongst the din of ignorance and hatefulness. Good luck to you, sir. You have earned your peace of mind.

  • 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.
