Might as well face it, we're addicted to rage
Jeremy Christian, who fatally slashed two men on a Portland MAX train and wounded another last month, is a rage junkie. He is full of bilious anger toward anyone who is not him. When three men intervened as he spewed his wrath and anti-Muslim abuse at a pair of teenaged girls, he turned that rage on them and left them in a welter of blood.

Coordinate and extend senior services
Several weeks ago I wrote a letter to the editor about the need to provide a way to coordinate services to senior citizens in Sisters. There were no responding letters about what I wrote. However, many seniors have been responding to me with much agreement about what was proposed. The letter might have been ignored by some, but not by seniors. My opinion is that the entire community owes its interest to the large numbers of senior citizens that support this community with their finances, expertise, and wonderful abilities.

Bring immigrants out of the shadows
Craig Rullman recently authored a column entitled "The Great Wall of Trump" which provided details drawn from his experience as a narcotics officer in California and recently released prison statistics to seemingly suggest that almost all those arrested in the drug trade were individuals in the U.S. illegally. That isn't true, and neither are his claims that immigrants just bring trouble and work for nearly nothing.

Sisters Eagle Airport - more than an airport

Questioning the constitutionality of Syria bombing
I was troubled by The Nugget's editorial regarding President Trump's executive decision to bomb Syria.

A better idea for insuring health
A great idea is floating around Central Oregon: Why not join with California and Washington in a West Coast universal healthcare system? It's time for healthcare to be treated as a human right, not a luxury.

Civility and Socrates
I am involved with the Citizens4Civility (C4C) non-profit here in Sisters Country. For about 18 months we have been hosting quarterly Civility Project/Speak Your Peace meetings to share ideas and techniques for how we can all be more respectful with each other. We have been focusing on nine core tenets of civility.
