    I drive up I-5 from the Bay Area every year to visit family and friends in OR (getting ready do it this weekend, actually), and whenever I drive through Roseburg a couple of thoughts come to mind:

    1) What a beautiful place this town sits in,
    2) Who's on the marquee for the County Fair this year -- Night Ranger again??? and
    3) Remembering that in the 70's my dad used to get pulled over by the OHP every time he drove through that corridor for what he figured was nothing more than driving while having a beard, and a short one at that.

    I'm well aware of the extremities found in local and greater Oregon politics, and of how outnumbered progressives must feel south of the Willamette Valley. So it was really heartening to see some light shining on this event. It's ironic that the spotlight was in the hands of the perps themselves, but not surprising I guess.

    Anyway, great work Citizen Joe, and nice lessons learned too -- our actions can have effects farther on than we expect.

    ...Though honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if the "threats" that Raynor says he's received were complete fabrications. "That's what they do."

    Remember: It's nothing more than the biggest heist in human history.
