How things look through an Oregonian's eyes

Why calling shooters "mentally ill" won't reduce school massacres


Following the most recent school shooting in Florida that resulted in 17 deaths, Trump and the NRA are resorting to their usual blather about mental illness being the problem, not guns. This is crazy. The United States doesn't have more...

Seventeen young lives cut short. We need a real culture of life.


Four days ago seventeen people were shot to death at a Florida high school, fourteen students and three staff. It infuriates me that there's any debate about what needs to be done: ban the AR-15 and other assault rifles along...

Cannabis cartridges are a long (good) way from rolling a joint


Well, it's been a couple of years since I last wrote about how to imbibe marijuana. Time for an update from this 69 year old baby boomer who is still learning new cannabis tricks in our happy new world of...

"Everything Happens for a Reason and Other Lies I've Loved" is a great book


Kate Bowler has written a book about her struggles with several serious health problems, with the worst being a stage 4 colorectal cancer diagnosis. It is funny, sad, moving, inspiring, and so much more. From the first page to the...

Two ways (among many) our dog controls me


Some people worry about artificial intelligence becoming so powerful, devilishly smart computers will rule humanity. I've got a more pressing immediate problem: I'm under the control of our dog, and I'm powerless to do anything about it. ZuZu looks innocent,...

Don't trust Google's "security issue found" alert if you use Apple Mail


Google caused me a lot of frustration last night. I got an email from Google that warned of a security issue. After I dealt with it, I couldn't use Apple Mail to access my Gmail account. Bottom line: don't trust...

Moderation in the pursuit of justice is a virtue. Usually.


Today I came across a letter written by Martin Luther King while he was in jail. It criticizes "white moderates." That got me to thinking about Barry Goldwater's saying about moderation. Interestingly, King and Goldwater seem to have something in...

For us, this is a fatal flaw of continuing care retirement communities


My wife and I are almost 70. We're still trying to figure out what we want to do in life. Or rather, the rest of our lives. I've written about our quandary in numerous blog posts, such as: I'm 65....
