Re: “Source Suggests This Book

Remarkable. The US opted out of the Paris agreement and yet is the only major industrialized nation to reduce carbon emissions. Remarkable. China and India decline to participate in the Paris agreement because adherence thereto would cripple their economies. Remarkable. Scientists at a Melbourne university discover a cost-effective methodology to reduce carbon emissions and yet greens studiously ignore any discussion thereof.
Remarkable. Any reasoned examination of the Green New Deal's costs leads to the inescapable conclusion that the US couldn't possibly afford it and it would require citizens to give up control of their lives, economically and otherwise to satisfy an unproven, uneconomic theory that's highly unlikely to materially and positively affect us during our lifetimes. Remarkable. And yet America's left keeps advocating the US handicap its citizens so that the two biggest polluters in the world can continue to do nothing.

Re: “Thunder in the Mountains

Well said. People find everything in the Nez Perce story--there are literally hundreds of books--and I think Sharstein is bringing Indians into the American discussion of race. Indians have been a puzzlement in that regard, as they were of course here first, and they were from the beginning admired and feared. They were noble savages or savage savages, and were forced onto reservations or assimilated or killed. They are still subjects of derision and admiration--for courage and stamina in face of oppression--and we still do not know how to deal with Indians in terms of their race, treaties, religions, and world views.

Re: “To Kill a Classic

I can gladly say that of the 40+ copies we've sold at Dudley's Bookshop Cafe there hasn't been a single request for a refund. I've also been very upfront about what it is to anyone that asked.

Re: “You Can't Handle the Truth

Very courageous. Despite Sibel, the USA people stay sleep, until they be exterminated also. The Georgia Guidestone's in fact announce the soon extermination of 99% of the people in the world; all the seven billion people except the twenty million of the "chosen" peoples and thirty million selected slave's for them, including for breeding teenagers for organ-harvesting.

The Guidestone's write: -- 500000000 in balance with nature --. But what does it really mean: Peacefull reduction to half a billion will take at least two centuries until 2222, more probably until 2300. But if the earth can survive centuries with almost ten billion people, what is the need of reduction until half a billion? A significant reduction of the footprint per person is possible within a century with the probable further technological developments.

Down to truth, the half a billion is just to keep the USA-people asleep with the believe that they will be allowed to survive. But the last nil is really meant to be a dot, meaning absolutely no more than fifty million. And if the federal wallstreets bankster families (GoldMorgs) arrange the extermination of billions, why not 99% instead of 90%? It is almost sure that thirty million slaves can be kept under absolute control. Half a billion is a huge surplus and risk.

The big extermination has not been done yet because first the large numbers are needed for wars to get control over the world, including Russia, Iran and China. The extermination tools have already been developed. A million secret mininukes eg neturon bombs, three hundred secret stealth bombers, an enhanced bird flue and an enhanced spanish flue that each will kill billions after release, according to the developers. Enhanced small pox, ebola, antrax, etc. have also been developed. The 99% extermination will be sure when all are being deployed together.

Re: “You Can't Handle the Truth

Many thanks to 'The Source Weekly' for this kind review. Love this city: the mountains, the beer, the food ... and its warm localitarian people!!! After 23 years in the sin-city (Washington DC), I found my 'paradise':-)

Re: “Cabin in the Woods

Christie, what a wonderful article about an extraordinary woman who left her journals as a legacy and inspiration to all who read them. Dave Talbot's presentation at the Bend Library is a great opportunity to learn about his wilderness experiences, which became the foundation for his legacy, Oregon's incredible State Parks system. The Cabin is a must-read and a fine addition to our own book shelves.

Re: “Closed Book

I'd like to stand up for BTC here... I can tell you that the owner of this business is one of the kindest, most inclusive women I have ever met. She constantly went out of her way to make books "accessible" to the community both in and out of her store. If you want to play the disability access game, take it up with the City of Bend and the Bend Historic Society. It took two years to even get a sign with the business name hung out front. Access ramps were a bureaucratic nightmare and the building is legally exempted from providing them because of it's age and historical status. Do not throw blind blame for an issue you clearly haven't researched properly...or at all.

Re: “Closed Book

It is a nationally registered historic building which restricts changing the outside appearance. Two people from the city came by to see what could be done and the only option would have been for them to deed us eight inches of the public sidewalk on Bond Street- in order to keep grade, the ramp would have gone from the back door to the front of the bookstore. That wouldn't fly with historic preservation and the city didn't seem to keen on deeding us the eight inches. I'm a kind human being and would never take pleasure in denying anyone access. I'm sorry you never got to see inside my bookstore. The people who restored this building did a wonderful job and while historic preservation helped in that regard, it is also fallible in other areas.

Re: “Closed Book

Wow...just wow...You truly can't please everyone. Forget about the struggles that every small business owner faces. Did you ever bring this up to this particular business? I mean, Lord knows you actually speak to someone in person rather then post a comment after the fact. Did you ever consider the cost to the business owner of making it accessible? Permits, contractors, etc? Probably not. I truly am sympathetic to your condition but commenting negatively on a local business closure is truly distasteful.

Re: “Closed Book

I am a buyer of books. Lots of them. I didn't buy a single book at Between the Covers. Not one. Why? Because they made it impossible for me to get in the door to do business with them. I have MS and use mobility aids and apparently the owners of the building determined it was not enough important to them to have folks like me as a customer. I feel sad when a local business closes. But I feel even more sad when they have never opened their doors to the minority population to which I belong.

Re: “On Farewell Bend and Forgiveness

People here miss you very much. I had a conversation with a friend over this article, this morning. She & I think that Bend needs to know what those awful truths are, as most are oblivious. As for Lindsay above, don't mind her. She got her head stuck in the elevator this morning...bummer for her.
