Who's Less American? 

I've recently been told that I'm less of an American than you.

This confused me a little at first, but after giving it some hard-working, American thought, I'm inclined to agree with you.

I'm un-American because...

I put honey in my coffee instead of sugar, I wear a moonstone around my neck instead of a cross, I read the news instead of watch it

My physical geographical location on a map happens to be on the left,

My dog doesn't always come when I call him, and I haven't bled for my country.

Are you MORE American...

Because you like your tea served up on a poster,

Your news Foxy, and

No matter what your physical geographical location happens to be...

You're always right?

Well, tie my dog up, ship me back to Texas and call me Glenn, I'm totally un-American! That's right, I'm un-American because I disagree with you, and you're more American because you don't recognize mine as a valid argument.

Who are we?

  • 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.
