Editor’s note: Letters about OSF

October 3, 2022

Wondering about all the letters about Oregon Shakespeare Festival? Ashland.news Relocations columnist Herbert Rothschild wrote columns posted Aug. 12 (“Let’s talk about OSF” and Aug. 19 (“Let’s talk more about OSF”), and asked readers to engage in a “community conversation” about the festival’s offerings, which drew some letters and Viewpoints.

National Public Radio (NPR) published an article on Sept. 28 entitled “Oregon Shakespeare Festival focuses on expansion – but is not without its critics,” which reached a national audience and prompted more letters. Longer responses are posted on the Viewpoints page.

Herbert Rothschild: “It’s hard to dismiss spite as a motive for aerial assaults on civilian targets unassociated with ground offenses against them. That’s especially true because retrospective studies of such assaults during World War II revealed that they do little to impede fighting capacity and, if anything, strengthen the popular will to carry on.”
