Destructive Morons | 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.

2010, the Year of the Destructive Moron? WTF?

There are no astrological indications that 2010 is the Year of the Destructive Moron, but here in Oregon this week we made a damn good case for such a declaration. Only a destructive moron would be ripe with sort of Voldemort-like evilness required to leave a pug puppy in a plastic garbage bag on the side of a rural road north of Bend. The shockingly cute puppy was rescued, but veterinarians said it had nearly suffocated in the bag. Then, out in the cheese-laden coastal town of Tillamook, equally destructive morons shot out the windows of the town's historic lighthouse. In the process, the wackadoos destroyed the more than 100-year-old French lens of the lighthouse's beacon. Wow, WTF?
