Re: “The Choices We Make

Excellent editorial, Thadeus. Despite my working in media for many years, until today, I had not heard of Project Censored.

The Project Censored article was well-written and worthy of consideration.

Re: “Humboldt Deputy on Vegas Shooting: 'Everyone Was Helping'

Wow. Glad they escaped. Sad so many didn't. The fact that a "tool" was used to make the weapons more automatic-like is a stain upon this nation.

Re: “Wayward Passage

What a fascinating article. Proof that long-form journalism still works. Well-done, Kimberly.

Re: “Bushels of Fall Fun at Fortuna's Apple Harvest Festival

Ah, this makes me homesick. Before moving to Cupertino, I think I went to every one of these festivals for several decades. One of the best things about Humboldt. I still call it by its former name: Clendenen's Apple Harvest Festival, or something similar. Old age; I can't remember.

Re: “Why?

While I share Sheila Evans' concern about a detailed explanation of making hash oil, I cannot fault Thadeus or The Journal for including it.

For me, as a reader, I now understand how it's made. I probably would have wondered how it's made, had it not been included in the article; however, I doubt that I would have Googled it.

Since I read Sheila's well-meaning comment, which I respect, I Googled how to make hash oil. My results gave me a variety of ways to make it, as well as a YouTube video. Thus, I cannot fault Thadeus.

Furthermore, Thadeus' account of the melting flesh, if I recall correctly, came through in the article as a very stark, painful and tragic reality of what happens when making it goes wrong.

Lastly, Thadeus' article would give any sane person pause before attempting to make cannabis or hash oil on their own.

Re: “'Things Can Fall Apart'

Another stellar story, Thadeus. Good to see hard-news journalism still has a home in Humboldt County. Excellent story.
