Texas Crack Was Ignorant 

As a New Yorker, who has lived in Texas for many years and then moved to Bend two years ago...I found Jim Anderson’s little comment (The Natural World, 9-29) about Texas offensive. It certainly had nothing to do with your subject matter.


As a New Yorker, who has lived in Texas for many years and then moved to Bend two years ago...I found Jim Anderson's little "comment" (The Natural World, 9-29) about Texas offensive. It certainly had nothing to do with your subject matter. Texas, nor Texans may not be your cup of tea (java) but it is just this type of Texas bashing that infuriates me because it is usually done out of little/no knowledge regarding the state or its people. It comes from a place of insecurity or ignorance of the people or the state. I love living in Bend....it was chosen....but some of the thinking is backward and uneducated when it comes to the rest of the world.

Texans have their faults and yes there are negatives about Texas the state, but so does Central Oregon and some of the people living here.

It just was not a comment required for your article. If it was injected for humor, I did not find it funny.

  • 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.
