@PPos - I think the "Hypo" in Steve's kit was short for "Hypodermic Needle."
If you're including Jane Pittman, then I nominate Pippi Longstocking.
Dear WM. Steven Humphrey,
There is a glaring error in Number 4 of your Holiday Wish List. A "Diabetic Hypo Kit" would never include an insulin syringe. "Hypo" refers to hypoglycemia, or, in layman's terms, a low blood sugar. As insulin is a synthetic hormone that lowers blood sugar, the syringe in question would most likely be a glucagon syringe.
Portland area Type I Diabetic (IDDM since 1987)
Jane Pittman was a fictional character.
Portland Police Corruption. Hello my name is Sabrina Haskins. I am writing about the corrupt practices of the Portland Police Bureau. The Portland Police have a history of corruption and racial profiling and discrimination against minorities. I raised my sons as a divorced single parent. They were taught morals and rules to live by. My sons are 22yrs old and 25yrs with no criminal past or police record. My sons made a conscious decision to live this way. On Sept 02 2013 my son Carlos Smith-Haskins left home at 4:30 am as he had done before to walk to the store to get a slurpee. On the way he stopped to relieve himself in some bushes on the side of a house. My son was called to the sidewalk by a Portland Police officer. My son complied. The Portland Police ask my son" What are you doing with those bikes".There was a Uhaul moving truck in the driveway of the house and my son looked and noticed some bikes were behind the moving truck laying on the ground close to the front door. My son Carlos replied" Those are not mine". My son was arrested. Upon walking my son Carlos to the police car, the arresting Portland police officer stated to the other officer" This is what Al Qaieda looks like. Referring to my sons appearance. My son Carlos was racial profiled and wrongly arrested. The Portland Police have falsifed the reports and falsified evidence against Carlos. My son Carlos has been wrongly charged with Burglary of a bike store, and has been wrongly Indicted on the charges for a crime he did not commit. My son Carlos Smith-Haskins is innocent of all charges. He was at the wrong place at the wrong time. The Portland Police Bureau has violated his civil rights and racial profiled another minority. We need help to get the word out that my son Carlos has been targeted and wrongly accused by the Portland Oregon Police Organization. The Portland Police Bureau must be legally made to be held accountable for their continued illegal practices. My son Carlos Smith-Haskins trial is scheduled to begin November 25 2013 for a crime he did not commit. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Hulk isn't funny.
Aside from the clever artwork and arbitrary ham-fisted editing this column seems all but redundant now.
Dear Renee Rufeh,
I have moved away from my native Portland twice, so I know what it's like to miss it. I would like to correct you as you have made a grievous error. Mt. Hood is a "he" not a "she". He is a proud Indian Warrior named Wy'east. Mt. St. Helens is the girl, her name is Loowit.
Happy, safe travels Renee!
your fresh eyes colum,try opening them,you mention several of the persons running for mult. co. chairman,one thing,you forgot to mention my name,let me introduce myself,my name is james rowell,i am running also,if you go to kgw tv web site and look up who is running,at least they were kind to at least mention me,they mention I am a highschool dropout and a former viewmaster employee,which I am,none of the newspapers here in Portland mention me last year when I ran for city commissioner,i even attended neighborhood meetings,to bad you only print part of the news,
Cogen and Manhas "had sex on the return trip" from Salem to Portland....were they on the Talgo train?
If so, did they at least clean up the handicapped bathroom when they were done?
Where the fuck is this person living now that they miss WinCo?
I admire her sincerity, as much as it makes my eyes roll straight out of my face.
Love the logic here. These people who slash tires are probably the same people who ride their bikes two wide, preventing me and the 7 cars behind me from getting out of second gear. Conservatively, I get 30% less mpg's at 15 mph than I do at 25 mph. You aren't helping heal the earth. You're helping to pollute it.
Those newspapers on top are just a thin facade covering up a pile of pills, hash, and cocaine... otherwise known as Humpy's Wednesday morning breakfast of champions.
It's as stupid as the free boxers who dump their old electronics on the street corners as it starts to piss pour rain for the winter. Who want's free toxic, useless shit?
Win. This is awesome.
My bad, that's not the real title, of course, it's actually "200 million people on Twitter so here's a tweet by our Senior Editor."
BTW, I like your new comics page feature, "Tweets of the Merc Staff."
In response to your seeming outrage over the 'spy scandal':
Don't forget Israel was caught spying on us a few years ago, and we still manage to be friendly and give them a lot of money every year too.
