 The Left’s War on Taboos

By Mark Tapson


Get ready for the normalization of cannibalism.


Recently I watched the harrowing 2023 survival thriller Society of the Snow, about the real-life 1972 plane crash in the Andes that left a rugby team and families and friends to fend for themselves in the unforgiving elements. Over the following two-and-a-half months after the crash, as search efforts were unsuccessful and then abandoned, the dwindling number of survivors (only 16 out of 45 passengers and crew were ultimately rescued) were forced to resort to cannibalizing the bodies of the dead in order to survive. It is not possible to watch Society of the Snow without asking yourself, How long could I hold out before I lowered myself to eat human flesh? Most of us Americans can’t go even several hours without craving a snack; very few of us know what real hunger feels like: the gnawing demand over the course of days and then weeks and then months – “the sensation that our own bodies were consuming themselves just to remain alive.” [more…]

6:35 Curtis Houck, Newsbusters Managing Editor

According to Jonathan Turley, CBS News has seized the files of Catherine Herridge who was one of their recently fired correspondents. The Media Research Center’s Curtis Houck said she was, “one of the only actual reporters in network news,” and “it was shocking enough that she no longer had a job.”

MRC Founder & President Brent Bozell said, “This cannot stand. If CBS wants to salvage a shred of its journalistic credibility, it will apologize to Ms. Herridge on-air today and return everything to her immediately.”

Houck identified this breach of journalistic ethics by CBS as not at all surprising since Herridge was following the corruption of the Biden family when no one else at network news would. Even other CBS employees were worried about this attack on the free press by one of the biggest news networks, according to Turley.

 Ben Hur Lampman: A Man for the Ages

By Dennis Powers

Following his brother, Rex, to Gold Hill in 1912, Ben Hur Lampman became over time a nationally acclaimed poet, writer, and author. Following his father’s passion for owning and managing newspapers from Wisconsin to North Dakota, the self-educated Lampman also pursed this profession.

His wife, a young high-school teacher by the name of Lena Sheldon, lost a child in infancy and had health problems. As his father and brother then were living in the Rogue Valley due to its better climate, it was natural for the family to relocate here. Brother Rex was also the editor of the Gold Hill News, although his parents had switched from newspaper publishing to try their hand at farming.

Ben Hur sold his North Dakota newspaper and headed to the Rogue Valley, discovering that the climate was indeed better. When his brother sold the Gold Hill News to him and moved to Portland, Ben Hur became the Gold Hill newspaper’s new owner and editor. He loved the town, its famed fishing, and the people he came to know.

Four years later, he moved north to join the Portland Oregonian’s staff. Over time he became a renowned editor, essayist, short story writer, novelist, and poet. Ben Hur won the prestigious O. Henry award for the best short fiction, authored six books, had a movie made about his life, was published in national magazines from the New York Times to the Atlantic Monthly and Saturday Evening Post, and was honored in being selected as Oregon’s Poet Laureate for which he served three years.

Year after year, he returned to Gold Hill to continue his passion for fishing on the Rogue and keeping up with old friends. In recognition of its “native son” who returned so often, Gold Hill held Ben Hur Lampman Day in his honor on June 21, 1947. Governors, ex-governors, and even Clark Gable, Tyrone Power, and David Niven—who had been fishing on the Rogue—joined an estimated 2,500 people who attended.

A long parade (with fire engines, trucks, bands, marchers, and floats), baseball game, horseback stunts, horse race, and a barbecued salmon feast were part of the festivities. A tract of land three-quarters of a mile long and opposite Gold Hill was dedicated as Ben Hur Lampman Park—which is still in use—and alongside the road named for him.

He died on January 24, 1954, and is buried in Portland. But his works live on. One of his best-known articles was a reader’s inquiry on where was the best place to bury a dog. He wrote a long article which ended:

“…There is one best place to bury a dog.

If you bury him in this spot, he will

come to you when you call – come to you

over the grim, dim frontier of death,

and down the well-remembered path,

and to your side again.


“And though you call a dozen living

dogs to heel, they shall not growl at

him, nor resent his coming.


“People may scoff at you, who see

no lightest blade of grass bent by his

footfall, who hear no whimper, people

who may never really have had a dog.

Smile at them, for you shall know

something that is hidden from them,

and which is well worth the knowing.


“The one best place to bury a good

dog is in the heart of his master.”
