Ring Out the Old Straight Poop, Ring In the New (12/28): 

Wow, I always read this section hoping you'll at least write Ron Paul's name somewhere in the column. You know the "kooky, crazy, Uncle Paul who supposedly "can't win" (aka won't be allowed to win) the GOP nomination because of his crazy non interventionist foreign policy, his views on the Federal Reserve, his ideas about the Patriot Act and the War on Drugs. Or wait, maybe you'll write about his "racist newsletters" and print his name while trying to smear him at the same time. Or perhaps you'll end up running a story about vote fraud, Iowa State GOP, and Ron Paul (hopefully that won't happen though) After Jan 3rd it will be inevitable to print his name whether in a positive or negative context, the R3VOLUTION will not be televised.

  • 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.)

  • Doors of Equality Swing Both Ways

    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.
