Stop and Smell the Poo 

I am responding to Ace's negative response (Source Weekly, 9-24) to the lighthearted, humorous article on goose poop. Of course the Source Weekly could have filled that space with a more pressing issue - let's see there's the swine flu worry, the always ever fascinating question: "Why does the Forest Service insist on performing controlled burns during the nicest day of the year" thus yet forcing us to breathe even more smoke than we breathe during the actual fires - or even better: the weak education system in central Oregon.

'Breathe' I tell myself. O.K., we didn't move here solely for the education value - there is the skiing, hiking, and world class fishing-that counts too, right?" So, Ace, get real. Sometimes it's nice to put it all aside and just enjoy an article for its silly, self-deprecating, sarcastic self - just like you're enjoying this letter, right?

  • 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.
