An Open Letter to a Fellow Motorist | Letters to the Editor | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

An Open Letter to a Fellow Motorist

To the Older Gentleman in the Volkswagon Passat, 3rd St, 7 pm, 9/21.

I'll try putting this here, as I don't think you're the Craigslist R & R type.

Really, really sorry I was driving like an a-hole (white and blue Ford truck, full of firewood).  You had every right to honk at me for cutting you off, and I want to offer you my sincere apologies, and a short explanation:  I was driving like an a-hole because both of my dogs had been bitten by a rattlesnake, and I was hurrying to get them to the emergency vet. Crazy, right?  Two dogs, one snake.


Anyway, serves me right for trying to hurry, as I missed my turn after cutting in front of you, and I had to turn around. The world sending me a message, something about slow and steady. But I was panicked, and driving inconsiderately, and I'm sorry.
