A commentary by Edward Hershey in the Blue Oregon blog this week notes that The Oregonian will not be endorsing a presidential candidate this election for the first time, maybe ever. Why?

 

Hershey writes: “This is about pragmatism, not philosophy. What is most likely at play here is that the two men now driving editorial policy at the O — publisher Chris Anderson and editorial page editor Erik Lukens — understand it would be bad business to endorse Romney. But both would just about die rather die than endorse Obama.”

A candlelight prayer vigil to remember the victims of the tragic shooting at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee, Wisc., will be from 7 to 8 pm Wednesday, Aug. 8, at Tugman Park, 36th Place and Hilyard in Eugene. The local Eugene Sikh community is inviting the greater Eugene/Springfield communities to join them.

 

The vigil is “to remember the victims of the tragic shooting at the Sikh temple in Wisconsin, to honor the bravery of the police officers who responded, and to stand for peace and understanding amongst all human beings,” according to an email from Gurumukh S. Khalsa. This vigil will be held in conjunction with other vigils across the nation.

 

Sikh prayers will be shared, a moment of silence, and words of peace may be offered. Bring blankets and a candle to light. Tea and refreshments will be served.
