Sudsy Wants You to Join the Oregon Commentator


The latest issue of Rolling Stone features a long , fascinating story about the eco-radical movement, which the story implies is based in Oregon. For those of us who have spent far too much time in Lane County — and thus, far too much time reading the Eugene Weekly — we have grown accustomed to news articles aggrandizing these pitiful fools.

Too bad the article is only a fragment. I may actually buy this magazine, which is anathema to everything a blogger holds dear.

(hat tip: Hit and Run — obviously)

    I don’t mind this form of sympathy, to tell you the truth. Read that crazy shit by Alan Pittman and you’ll see how anything — ANYTHING — about eco-terrorists is better than the crap they publish in the Weekly.

  2. Timothy says:

    The article is pretty good, but a little sympathetic toward the crazies. The insistence upon putting eco-terrorists into quotes and calling them activists is sort of charmingly separated from reality.

  3. Timothy says:

    Mmmm…Kudos. Like granola, but covered in chocolate.

  4. Tyler says:

    I see — having read farther down the H&R comments section — that Tim actually gives a shout-out to the OC. You receive a double kudos for that, sir.

  5. Tyler says:

    I see that our man-about-the-Internet, Tim Dreier, already has a comment on the Hit and Run blog.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
