Re: “Ladies of Lead

I want to challenge Sharon Preston's statement, quoting from Ladies of Lead, "Knives, she says, kill more people than guns by far." According to the FBI that is false, not even nearly true.…
As you can see Firearms are responsible for a lot more murders than knives. So the statement "Knives kill more people than guns" is false.

Re: “Letters 6/29-7/6

To Harry Williamson, re: Bend growth. Please describe for me a scenario that could prevent the projected growth for this area. I believe it's coming and it's not caused by City Council members. I agree that a sudden mix of high rise density next door gives you reason to grumble. I also believe that density is our only option given the OR land use laws, which I believe define the most reasonable path forward.

Re: “Letters 12/16-12/23

RE Refugees and Climate Crisis: Um, Climate Change is a global event, not limited to the USA. While it's true that limiting population (globally) would be good for the climate, it's practically irrelevant where refugees settle. Not totally irrelevant, since we in the USA have the highest per capita carbon output. But I can't see your proposal to close our borders helping to a) limit global population or b) limit global climate change.
