1 thought on “John Thiry”

  1. John Thiry was a tragic figure in Ashland, Oregon. I first saw him on the street when I moved to town in 2002. He was well-dressed, though out of style and too warmly for the warm Ashland summer day. He sat among the tourists, but his body language made clear he was not one of them. He heedlessly started a fire that burned down 11 homes. He didn’t get the love that’s every human’s due, and he died on the street, far too young.
