Jeff Petersen: ON SECOND THOUGHT

Short speech has long life

Maybe the world would be a better place if we were all forced to Twitter.


Win the night: If you snooze, you win

Down through history, some real go-getters, some major achievers, a who’s who of accomplishers on the world stage, famously got by on little sleep.


Fall back? Id rather fall ahead

The headline “Dewey defeats Truman,” from the Chicago Daily Tribune, might be most famous newspaper error ever.

Fireball takes bow in Short Attention Span Theater

Attention spans are getting shorter these days. What with TV sitcoms, Facebook rantings and Twitter snippets, of TV and radio headline-intensive news, people are developing the attention spans of a dog in a scent factory.


Evolution of TV: Rabbit ears hop over the horizon

In the old days, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, when men wore hairdos that looked like landing strips for tiny planes, where many TVs showed only artsy black and white, there was the Game of the Week.


Cat daddy gets, gives tough love

Neighbor Sandy is in my face in a kind sort of way. It’s a classic tough-love intervention. Sandy, who makes sure the cats don’t starve when I go on vacation, has me cornered.

Cat daddy gets, gives tough love

Neighbor Sandy is in my face in a kind sort of way. It’s a classic tough-love intervention. Sandy, who makes sure the cats don’t starve when I go on vacation, has me cornered. Main cat Mattie, the calico, is not starving, she says. In fact, Mattie is grossly overweight. Auxiliary cat Sophie, a Siamese, is doing better, not yet a round mound of pound, like Mattie, but moving in the direction of sloth and gluttony.

Congress less popular than rotten shark


PETERSEN: Falling for Oregons Columbia gorgeous scenery

Every time I went traveling, as a boy, my uncle Alan would welcome me home with a rousing imitation of the Johnny Cash song.


Wallowa Lakes east moraine deserves protection

Imagine Coney Island on the Wallowa Lake east moraine. Disneyland. Six Flags waving on the horizon line.

 


Larrys legacy: Smile at the storm

According to leading scientific experts at the School of Hard Laughs, there are 49 different senses of humor. There is the benevolent. The self-effacing. The sarcastic. The teasing. The critical. The mean and nasty. The odds of meeting someone who matches your style are about the same as Oregon’s voting in a sales tax or a tsunami striking Summerville.


PETERSEN: Hey honey, were going camping

In every couple’s history, there are important firsts: first dance, first kiss, first bear encounter.


PETERSEN: Mom joins Club 80 with joy, persistence

Mom never won the Nobel Peace Prize. But she often helped make peace among my older brother, younger sister and me, no easy task herding three young rapscallions, the original rap group.

Camp cooking: From spavioli to spew

You know you’ve found camping Nirvana when the place charges $20 a night — and has no mosquitoes, deer flies, rabid bats, neighbors blaring rap music and loose pit bulls.
