A 911 call came into the Douglas County emergency services at 10:38 a.m. alerting authorities of an active shooter at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg. 13 are confirmed dead by the State Attorney General Rosenblum, and there are 20 wounded, many critically. "There's no more threat," the Sheriff told KOIN 6. It appears, at this time, there was one shooter. The shooter is among the dead.

It is the last thing most of us expected to hear: nearly every single worker from the Exxon Valdez oil spill Disaster is now dead. We're talking about a lot of people. I personally became an oil spill volunteer at the time here in Oregon, though I never got my hands very dirty, so to speak.

Many Oregonians recall the tragic and shocking murder of Oregon's prison director Michael Francke. After almost 21 years, the stories have never gone away. Many know the truth, they have always known, because they were right in the middle of it.

The VA this week outlined which ships are now considered to have been exposed to Agent Orange during Viet Nam. A number of offshore “blue water” naval vessels conducted operations on the inland “brown water” rivers and delta areas of Vietnam.
Pot enthusiasts in Oregon are especially happy today. Recreational cannabis sales begin as of now. Oregon voters passed Measure 91 last November by a wide margin, and their voices have been heard. The Legislature gave Oregon medical marijuana dispensaries permission to sell to the non-medical market until retail stores are set up, and those sales begin today.
In a stratified society, the tiny fraction who comprise the ruling class must control perceptions of the much larger fraction under their control. To do so they must tightly manage the conduits of information and its interpretation through endlessly repeated story lines that alternately generate and relieve public anxiety. Motivated by anxiety and reinforced by its reduction, we are herded along the path chosen by the rulers with only fleeting glimpses of reality.
