Re: “High on Hog

I remember the "Hog" Jerry Daniels well from Operation Grand Eagle, I wrote about him in my book BOHICA, later i was subpenaed to testify before Secret Federal Grand Juries in DC, then before Special Senate and Congressional committees, then a under oath with truth serum testimony in which still over 25 years later the video tape done is still Classified. Jerry was a great Agent and we both loved General Vang Pao and enjoyed working in this dark world.

Re: “The end of taste

Finally read this piece. Happy I did. One thing, though, Mr. Brooks: Your generalization about radio is only valid if you ignore college radio. I'm sure you meant commercial radio, but I feel like it's worth mentioning college radio, which has certainly been around for three decades or so, as a place "people who like music" can find something to listen to over the airwaves.

Long live music AND college radio!

Re: “Growing pains

I'm more than a bit confused as to why this reviewer was looking for comedy and declared it a flaw of Frances Kuffel's writing when none emerged. In my opinion, one of the threads of this memoir is that certain situations in life (in this case the dating scene over age 50) is not a fun time even if approached with hope, low expectations and a grain of salt. Perhaps the reviewer should stick to reading books that promise to entertain her.

Re: “Growing pains

I think what the reviewer is saying is NOT that she expected everything to be tied up with a shiny bow at the end, but that she was hoping that when Frances wrote "Maybe I needed me," it signified a change in Frances' behavior, maybe even an end to desperately searching in all the wrong places for love. I have to agree that a lot of the book was painful/sad and cringe-inducing.

Re: “Growing pains

I couldn't disagree more with this review. I found Frances Kuffel's honesty compelling, and her prose to be fun, dancing, and intelligent. The fact that there was no resolution to the story told is because it's a series of stories---because our lives are like that. Short little films. Odd docu-dramas and quirky short movies. What you might have found choppy and erratic about her tales, I found easy to follow. The book flowed for me. Perhaps it's because I understand what it is to search for something and never find it. The idea of any book having to have some sort of resolution is silly. Life isn't resolved until death, and I certainly don't want the author of a memoir to die at the end of her story. I want her to dust herself off, pick herself up, and start all over again. That's what Frances Kuffel has done---in this book and in her life.

Re: “Koch problem

Why don't you do an article on the EVIL George Soros, the billionaire who says he would like to see the US dollar collapse and would like to help make it happen. The guy who has donated over a billion dollars to left wing liberals over the last decade. Once again you show how one sided you are. Why doesn't some one do an article about WHY Obama had lawyers hide all of his college records (and other records from his past). Why would a presidential candidate go to those lengths to hide his past?? Answer me that also.

Re: “Road from Hanford

Having grown up in the aftermath of massive Forest Service backcountry road projects,gigantic sasquatch-shaped power corridor pylons, and chain-linked electrical
mega-power installations, I applaud your work. Note Hanford sits on the Olympia-Wallowa
Lineament, a regional faultline, the San Andreas Fault of the northwest.
