    Re: “Weekend Roundup 1/18-1/20

    Hey Mary-- this is a post from 2013-- but you're right, the OWC was last weekend for 2018.

    Re: “Elevating Women in Politics

    Six or eight years ago was a different political climate, for better or for worse, but thanks for your input, Peter.

    Re: “Have a grievance with your government?

    Hey Permission -- We do realize that they're disparate and perhaps apples to oranges, and yet they both were topics of conversation this week in Bend, so that's where they came together for us. As for the specific demand of NFL players, Kaepernick's is to end police brutality against people of color, and specifically for police to end the profiling and subsequent needless killing of black men. Rosa Parks' was clear too -- to allow equal treatment under the law. Occupy struggled to find its specific demand, and that is perhaps why it didn't last. But thanks for your perspective!

    Re: “Have a grievance with your government?

    Hey Riversong -- While we do agree that protest can work, it's usually accompanied by a demand, which yes, can be a demand that an unjust law be changed. Without a specific demand for redress, which we'd argue the Bundy clan didn't have, not much can get done. So there's the need not just for an action, but for a demand that addresses the problem.

    Re: “Representative democracy for the varied neighborhoods of Bend?

    That's one way to look at it, GB. Another is to consider how many people are choosing not to run for these positions because they can't afford to spend that amount of time doing unpaid work. In other words, if you increase the stipend, you might get more people who represent the working class and lower-income demographics on council.

    Re: “The World Needs Its Helpers Even More Than Ever

    Foster, I honestly can't decipher whether that last statement is supposed to be sarcastic.
