To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

Stay Away

Good old Oregon has made another list, coming in numero uno in this common sense look at places not to retire.

Says our crime rate is well above the national average.

No doubt that is because of all the hillbillies that pack around here, the meth craving, and an assortment of scams that people run in order to survive.

Sounds like the ghost of former Governor Tom McCall at work.  He once famously said, "Come visit, but don't stay, please."

I think he was addressing Californians in particular.
