Re: “Keeping the Home Fires Burning

Bend won’t tax or regulate its way to more housing, affordable or otherwise. Local governments should reconsider just how many regulatory hurdles they place between investment and the marketplace. And higher taxes on real estate investors of whatever stripe won’t create more housing supply.

Re: “Will Play For Less

I’m a multi instrumentalist living in VT since 2006 and playing 150-160 gigs/year. The key to my success as a self supporting musician is simple: play the songs people want to hear! So many singer/songwriters insist on only playing their original tunes. Well, what happens if their tunes aren’t really that good?
I have no problem playing requests. My ego is not bruised if I play “Mustang Sally”, “Proud Mary” or any of the other songs people request, particularly if it’s accompanied by someone stuffing a $20 bill in my tip bucket. (And guess what, folks...there’s a reason those songs went gold/platinum. They were killer tunes!)
Venue operators know that my goal is to make their clientele happy and anxious to return and spend more money there. That’s crucial if you want to succeed.
Continue honing your songwriting skills and stick an original or two into your set. If your tunes are any good, people will ask about them.

Re: “Medicare for Us

Hmmm. $1 billion in total saving across the state vs. higher profits for the insurance industry and higher salaries for administrators at SCMC. That's a pretty easy choice for me, especially when SCMC uses some of its money to fight its own unionized employees. I would also welcome single-payer in Oregon. --Michael Funke

Re: “Medicare for Us

putting aside all the politics of the discussion. I think a system that is intended to make profits, will always put shareholders ahead of patients. If healthcare is too complicated at the federal level, I welcome a single payer system in Oregon. I would rather my money going to provide better healthcare for everyone in Oregon vs lining executive pockets with cash. I would also welcome Oregon Lottery proceeds and taxes on alcohol, tobacco and cannbis to help with the cost.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

A picture of someone riding their bike... when there is clearly a sign that says please walk your bike. I walk across this bridge all the time and have to move for people riding... in just saying maybe your photo editor should pay more attention...

Re: “Yes, We Are Getting a Lot of Robocalls

And I thought I was just popular with Hilton Rewards, the IRS, healthcare services, car dealerships, bank loans, credit card companies, and those funny Asian sounding guys who say that my Social Security number has "expired". #scamlife

Re: “A Personal Top 10 Reading List

Bill Bryson is a great writer and I've enjoyed what I've read of The Body so far.

Re: “Finding the Will to Live

----"Mental health is stigmatized across the board..."

Actually, we are told by those taught or teaching that to conform to that prejudice, but no, we do not have to.

Nor do we have to contribute to teaching it. There is no law that says, "You will conform."

And no, I do not.

Re: “Poverty With a View?

Laurel, send a copy of this to the New Yorker. You're in the same league as Jane Mayer and Elizabeth Kolbert. I can see a bright future for a writer as talented and informative as you are. Here's an interesting aside. You tickled the cockles of my heart when you mentioned Thomas Piketty's book. Recently I came across a news item stating that Amazon keeps track of the readers of the Kindle version of books. Piketty's book, although a best seller, was read fully through to page 8 on average by the Kindle reading public. Me? I borrowed the book and read the first 8 pages. :)

Re: “More Tacos, Please

Thanks for adding some info, Geoff. That was an oversight on our part not to include it in the story. We have updated the story to include their contact info, but please note the suite is #410, not #100 as Geoff mentioned.

Re: “More Tacos, Please

Vida y Tacos...address please. Saying it replaces another restaurant is inadequate information. Journalism 101.
