  • Left Confused

    I’m a white guy.  I’m straight.  I’m married.  I have a son. I’ve worked for big companies in the private sector.  I’ve hired dozens of people.  I’ve let several go.  I’ve run a small business for 12 years.  I’ve dealt with all sorts of regulations.  I’ve always paid my taxes. I have a master’s degree.  My student loans have been paid off for 15 years.  My credit card bill is paid in full every month.  I’m in debt to no one.  Our household income is in the top 15-25%. I was raised Catholic.  I have a moral compass.  I’ve never been arrested.  I have no criminal record.  I’m not a burden on the healthcare system: I’m not obese or unhealthy.  I’ve run 25 marathons.  I’ve never tried smoking.

  • Barfing Her Eyes Out

    Editor’s note: We were originally contacted by the letter writer below when she left us a colorful voicemail that we shared with readers on the Bent Blog. Below is her follow-up letter that arrived typed out and dropped in our mail slot a week ago. Thanks for staying in touch anonymous 13-year-old. And here’s hoping that our next communication is via smoke signals. (EJF) Hello, greetings, hola, salutations, and aloha!  Guess who?  That's right! Your "pissed off" 13 year old.  Just some clarification, as I read your Bent (extremely bent) blog and most of its twisted, bleeding  heart, and irrelevant comments.  I was not pissed off, rather I was disappointed in your work.  Sadly, I am not leaving a voicemail this time, but a letter can be just as entertaining, if not more (that is if you have the brain capacity, and I sure hope you do).

  • Reject Knopp’s Dirty Money Politics

    After reading a recent article in The Bulletin pertaining to the relationship between state senate candidate Tim Knopp and Loren Parks, I had immediate concerns and did some further research. Turns out that Loren Parks, a man who had sex with hypnotized women as part of medical treatment, is not the only dubious supporter of Tim Knopp. The Republican candidate has raised a lot of money from individuals who have done more damage to our Democratic process than good. Karl Rove, for instance, should not be regarded as a hero. His nefarious approach to politics and his support for unlimited corporate campaign contributions is antithetical to good government and yet he was invited to Bend to speak at a $2,500-a-plate dinner, sponsored by Tim Knopp's PAC. When Tim Knopp has such a large fundraising advantage over his opponent, why does he need this elitist, out-of-touch dinner that most Central Oregonians can’t even afford to participate in?

  • The Bulletin’s little problem with ethics.

    Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE Publishers’s Note: This is part one in an occasional series about The Bulletin’s disregard for the most fundamental principles of journalism ethics.  Today’s topic? A top-of-the-fold, front-page story (if you can get past their pay wall!) about the very concerning problem of weekly newspapers running legal notices.
