Comedian Dwight Slade Back From Afghanistan


I just got off the phone with Dwight Slade and he sounded like he was still processing his trip. It involved rides on two cargo planes, and two helicopters and 10 days in Afghanistan entertaining the troops in the noble tradition of Bob Hope. Dwight’s comment: “If I went any farther around the world for a gig, I'd be in Beaverton." He played 4 bases and talked to a lot of our servicemen. He left there the day before 10 servicemen were killed also riding around Afghanistan in a helicopter, so Dwight has done a brave thing here, and all Portlanders should be proud – especially the standup comedians. The one big disappointment for him from the entire trip: The Hooters in Khandahar.
