I was certainly astonished to see the "Oregon Times" appear in
the "Cloudbusting" video; it may have been one of the things that
made a lasting impression on me when I first saw the video.

I do hope that Kate doesn't pronounce "Oregon" as "O-re-gohn" to
make it parallel with "orgone".  It would at least be an original

Blooper?  I like the idea that somebody noticed that "Oregon" is
an anagram of "orgone".  What can you get by rearranging the
letters of "Maine"?

I also like it that Kate cast her eye this way, although if she
really knew Oregon she would have known that we don't really need
a cloudbuster that much.  Although I could go for one now, with
global warming and El Nino giving us an almost unpleasantly mild
winter and a complete lack of snowpack.
