While it is the 21st century and we do have internet access here, it's
been of ongoing use to have copies of the physical Oregonian newspaper for
a few reasons. One is to track how they cover the news of America's wars--

figuring someone on this list might be willing to set them aside and drop
them off here every couple of weeks.
If that person is you, let me know!
