« Salem "cougar" is almost certainly a cat | Main | Wisconsin recall election disappointing -- but everything will be all right »

June 03, 2012


Josephine County (as well as its commissioners)has always been a haven for libertarians, right-wingers and religious fanatics who don't want to pay for anything and figure they'll just shoot anyone who disagrees with them. (A large proportion consists of ex-Southern Californians. The City of Grants Pass, however is somewhat of an oasis in the middle of the wasteland. They have their own public safety departments and excellent schools all of which are supported by bond measures which they pass pretty consistently. Unfortunately they are part of the county and have to suffer the consequences. They still have a library supported by pledges ala NPR but that's somewhat of a blessing since the commissioners no longer have their fingers in it.
