I agree entirely with Mr. Garrity. This is not about guilt shaming; it is about providing the most basic help for a vulnerable community. Interesting that on July 3 the State Medical Examiner attributed the two deaths on Hunnell to the heat dome, but then withdrew that determination a wee…

Mr. Henderson, always nice to hear about the latest efforts to downplay the pandemic.

However, “whataboutism” and false equivalency are getting to be rather shopworn rhetorical devices.

Of course, we need to look into the collateral effects of the pandemic; and--certainly--we …

We're back to the original conundrum: Do we place any credibility at all in any organization that publishes facts at variance with our belief systems? CCC has engaged in analysis of participation in large scale events for several years; no one else has tackled a job like this. That so man…

It will be interesting to scrutinize the polling to determine how the younger age groups regard BLM; I would suspect it is well regarded.

Interesting how the myth that violence pervaded the thousands of BLM protests nationwide in the aftermath of the George Floyd murder reveals itse…

kindergentlerbend commented on Mutual aid in Central Oregon: the new normal

At least we can agree that we should try alternative solutions for everyone caught up in the housing crisis. I very reluctantly bring up shortcomings at City Hall--it continues to baffle me that that group of open-minded individuals clings to the futility of the past.
