You Don't Run the Place, Pal | 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.

You Don't Run the Place, Pal

It wouldn't kill you to turn down the music.

We were out sipping a beer this weekend at one of our local haunts, chatting with friends, keeping a tangential interest on a football game or two and generally enjoying ourselves as music played in the background when some dude, who apparently thought he ran the place, told the bartender, quite loudly, "It wouldn't kill you to turn down the music." No, as far as we know, no one has ever been killed by music, loud or otherwise. But also, no one has ever died from keeping their damn mouth shut and just listening to the completely appropriately leveled and mostly easy-going music playing in a public place. Does this guy go also to swimming pools and tell people to put their shirts on? Come on, pal, you don't run the place, OK? Jeez, WTF?
