Texas Crack Was Ignorant 

As a New Yorker, who has lived in Texas for many years and then moved to Bend two years ago...I found Jim Anderson’s little comment (The Natural World, 9-29) about Texas offensive. It certainly had nothing to do with your subject matter.


As a New Yorker, who has lived in Texas for many years and then moved to Bend two years ago...I found Jim Anderson's little "comment" (The Natural World, 9-29) about Texas offensive. It certainly had nothing to do with your subject matter. Texas, nor Texans may not be your cup of tea (java) but it is just this type of Texas bashing that infuriates me because it is usually done out of little/no knowledge regarding the state or its people. It comes from a place of insecurity or ignorance of the people or the state. I love living in Bend....it was chosen....but some of the thinking is backward and uneducated when it comes to the rest of the world.

Texans have their faults and yes there are negatives about Texas the state, but so does Central Oregon and some of the people living here.

It just was not a comment required for your article. If it was injected for humor, I did not find it funny.
