Think Out Loud

The Ross Brothers

Pete Springer/OPB

This time of year leads many people to reflect on the meaning of family. For Andrew and Winston Ross that relationship is unique. Winston is a journalist who writes and reports for the Register-Guard and Newsweek. Andrew is homeless. They both live in Eugene, but their lives are very separate. We brought both brothers together for a show in the fall to talk about their views of the world. What led one person to career success, and the other to a life of homelessness?

Do you have siblings? How have their choices been different from yours and how has that affected your relationship?
