Speaking as a cat, I just simply do not understand people who don't like cats. I also don't understand why anyone would adopt a kitten and then later abandon it. Didn't you love that little animal? Don't you have any feelings for it?
My heart melts every time my kittens do pretty much anything - even when they're chewing my headphone cord or book corners to shreds.
Personally, I look forward to growing old with my cats. I find their company much more interesting and agreeable than that of most humans, nowadays.
First wheeled problem.
It's your own fault, Anon, for not arranging for a chauffered limo to take you to and from work every day.
Cyclists who pass me while I'm at a stop sign just fucking piss me off. I'll ride directly behind them for blocks just ringing my bell.
Theory based on this comment thread: Onstad is heavily invested in a monocle repair shop located across the street from Piattino.
Those kids? They think you are a fuckin dork.
This is completely bogus! This is the best restaurant in Portland, or dare I say, the world? Chris Onstad killed three of the customers, and now he's trying to blame this bastion of cuisine! I am Enrico Letta and will say that no where in Italy does Italian cuisine as finely as Piattino. Did you even see the basil leaves on that pizza? That's how you know it's a great pizza! I've had seven of their cocktails while writing this review and they're all top-notch. Each one is better than the one before, even! It sounds like Oven and Shaker is ripping off Piattino, if anything!
I can't speak for others that responded to this review with as you call it "outrage", but I responded as a work colleague of mine told me about the negative review. It is the one place I frequent regularly in the pearl. I don't read reviews as I don't put much stock into the opinion of someone I don't know when it comes to likes/dislikes. That said, other people do. I enjoy the establishment and would like to see it stick around, but reviews such as this one cast a mean-spirited negative light. People that make their decisions based off a food review may never give Piattino an opportunity. If I did not enjoy the quality of food, service and an owner who makes an attempt to get to know his customers, I would not respond to this review.
Another "I'm more important then everyone else" crap. Please they have every right to take max. And newsflash, kids play. What part of PUBLIC transportation do you not get.
Sounds like a fun Christmas get together!
"Then maybe we have treat Snowden like a whistle-blower, and not a traitor. Snowden's leaks, meanwhile, continue to take us deeper into the muck of obsessive surveillance, this time with hundreds of pages showing spy games in 60 countries"
This is precisely the problem for Snowden. He didn't just take the materials necessary to show spying on Americans, he took tens of thousands of documents on perfectly legitimate international espionage, of the type that all countries participate in.
Every time Glenn Greenwald releases some tidbit about legitimate spying on Brazil or someone, for no other reason than to embarrass the US, Snowden's claim to be a "whistle blower" is eroded all the more.
His tactics of taking tens of thousands of documents in bulk and handing them to an activist are not defensible. Traitor.
The tide is turning in favor of accommodating cyclists as legitimate road users. People who flout the rules and ride dangerously ruin it for everyone.
This long-form and informative interview with people trying to create a new and interesting comics convention is yet another data point validating the idea that the staff of the Portland Mercury are on some sort of anti-comics jihad.
Fun fact: It's actually legal to hit cyclists that don't bother with any sort of lights or reflectors.
Update after dropping to around $500 dollars it is almost back to $800.
I've met this kind of couple over and over again and believe me if they break up she'll just find another "stray cat" type person to take care of again. I'm sure her previous relationships were with similarly confounding individuals. Be thankful that he has some kind of job and doesn't hurt your sister.
NATIVE DEXTERIAN LEG WRESTLING
Benghazi moon landing Zapruder Kenya Jesus libs War on Christmas!

Anyone else notice that all of the outraged responses to this review are from commenters who signed up specifically to write these comments defending this one restaurant? (One of them later commented on another food article the following day.) More than one of these people accused the writer of this review of having hidden motives, but it seems like that charge could be just as easily made about these various pseudonyms who've rushed to sign up to angrily defend this restaurant.
