Spent pretty much all day Saturday at the Oregon Brewer's Festival on the waterfront and didn't encounter one single act of doucheyness. What I did see was a lot of politeness, kindness and smiles. Long lines and hot weather be damned, we were packed in like sardines but everything was civil and the mood was delightful. For all the bitching and moaning I see on this blog, this city still has its shit together and for the most part people here are great. Truly a city of people I'm proud to call my neighbors.
