By M. Martin,
Oregon writer

Last Friday, comedian Jim Gaffigan came to Portland on his Noble Ape comedy tour. He has been called the Pope’s comedian for his role in an opening act for Pope Francis’ Philadelphia visit last year. Gaffigian shared with the Portland audience about that experience. He recounted that he only was given 15 minutes and how nervous he was. Being in Philadelphia, Gaffigan made a joke about a controversial moment in the city’s past (1968 Santa incident) that upset some in the crowd — which only provided more comedic fodder in the retelling.  The comedian also had a chance to meet the pope in person on that special day.

God bashing film ‘Mother!’ suffers epic flop

Darren Aronofsky’s relentless God bashing film, Mother!, is record money losing flop
By M. Martin
Oregon writer,

Darren Aronofsky, the director behind the film “Mother!”, is becoming one of Hollywood’s most sacrilegious anti-Christian filmmakers and coincidently just joined the hall of shame as the Mother! Film just became a record bust over the weekend.  Mother! tanked in epic fashion both in reviews and box office ticket sales.

Gorge fire, Max stabbing response reveals our dark side

Three summer tragedies reveal Oregon’s dark side.

By M. Martin
Oregon writer

As if it weren’t enough to see Oregon’s precious Gorge go up in flames from careless youths; after 18 hours of firefighting, one crew member returned to find his fire station looted. The thieves stole $100,000 worth of goods, including personal gear, a bike, a Jeep and a fire station pick-up truck.

This “hero gets looted” scenario is similar to the Max train stabbing incident this summer. Ricky Best was stabbed while heroically protecting two women from a knife attack aboard a Max train. As he lay bleeding and dying on the ground, another man, George Tschaggeny, stole Ricky’s backpack, wallet, and even his wedding ring. Tschaggeny was caught by police wearing the dead man’s wedding ring.
