Ignorance Is Bliss 

Dear Editor,

John Sabo's Opinion piece "Let Beck Shine A Light" (Source, 10-1) leaves me no choice but to congratulate him for having the stomach to listen to the Fox News "talk jocks" (David Brooks quote) and no doubt Rush too - his stomach must be cast iron! Sabo criticizes the Source writers who, "continue to bash these guys and this network," justifiably so. If he's looking for sympathy I doubt that he'll get it. He ends with, "Ah, ignorance is bliss." "Ignorance is bliss" is taken out of context from Thomas Gray's, "On a Distant Prospect of Eton College." What Gray said was "... where (not if) ignorance is bliss, 'Tis folly to be wise." Sabo, perhaps?

  • 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.
