Here's a mini-rant addressed to the world at large titled "Portland is So Anal" (and no, not in a good way).

To the person who left this note on my bike at Sunday Parkways NE "You just gave this event a Black eye. Locking your Bike to My tree was Not cool" 1. Parking strips are a part of the public right of way in Portland. Its OUR tree. Yes, it would have been more polite of me to lock my bike in Alberta Park but there were thousands of bikes locked to every tree in the park.

BAH! Leaving anonymous notes are the "internet commenting system" of life! Like it, or LOVE IT! Hey, do YOU have a rant or confession you'd like to share with the world? Don't leave it on a tree-killing bike... drop it off in the I, Anonymous Blog!
