(Full disclosure: I come from where there are, in fact, boroughs, but they are larger than many states rather than making up portions of a city, so I wouldn't think to use the word that way)
It's okay, you can blame the internet. But you must admit that a city having five quadrants is pretty awesome.
Portland since birth dude. Guess I just talk like a transplant.
Portland has boroughs, huh? So do you miss Williamsburg yet?
This was enjoyable and informative. :)
The graphics & questions of this survey are hella into upholding the gender binary and ignore the plight of intersex folks...
Thank you, this made my day.
I was in Humparoke and we were actually all singing during the final scene--no lip-synching! :) The guy singing the karaoke song at the end is the actual vocalist on the karaoke track. Anyone who goes to Chopsticks on a regular basis knows this is true. Hehe
Really good writing: I loved genuinely loved reading the whole thing!!!
One day I hope to find the corner with the street that has a different old name in the concrete!
A question - My understanding is that the Dalles Dam is the one that submerged Celilo Falls and its tribal fishing platforms in 1957 - the Bonneville dam is to the west in Cascade Locks.
Can the haunted electricity still power my iphone from the Dalles? Is the Bonneville Dam power less haunted? Does it even matter, because all of it is managed by the BPA? I will whisper to my iphone tonight as I go to bed and listen for its tales of appropriated cultural and economic resources.
Being newly afraid that you'll get locked in trunk doesn't mean you're no longer a terrible person. You may be a literal sociopath, in fact.
Based on what you've written here (and other stuff you've posted on the Merc) I really feel compelled to ask you to seek psychiatric help. Good luck
@pollo, please quit your full time job being a douche.
As a serious science geek, a strong fluoridation supporter, and someone who willingly eats (and will continue to eat) GMOs, I'm voting YES on 92 for the only reason I even saw worth debating during the fluoride debacle: ethics.
You tell me I don't need to know what's in my food? Fuck you. Simple as that.
I would not begrudge the fluoride loons - who ARE on the wrong side of science, something which simply has not been as solidly proven with GMOs, which I'm more concerned about hurting the food web than I am about hurting me - a label on beverages which were made with fluoridated water. They can avoid the label and I can ignore (or select for) it.
As for the slippery slope argument, other than allergens (which are often still a 1 in 100 issue, if that), there *aren't* a lot of other things people give a shit about like GMOs, so no, you are not going to have all available packaging surfaces taken up with special interest labels in 10 years when, er, if 92 passes - give me a break.
David Anderson - the new poster child of why we need a science tax in this city.
Don't quit your day job writing non fiction.
In case you ever wondered what a feature-length I, Anonymous looked like...
Dear Monica, really good writing, incredibly shallow and offensive perspective though. People don't come here thinking it's paradise- they come here because other towns are dangerous and leave you hungry. They certainly don't come to drink piss- excuse me I meant the beloved oregon microbrews.
I trust you only meant it in good fun but am cautious because experience in portland tells me to be on the look out for crossbreeds of litterateurs' and authoritarian yuppies.
No on 92, are you mad , what is Monsanto paying you guys, please refrain from giving us advice on what u don't understand. You did the same on fluoride, your rag is dangerous and you don't deserve to be a part of what keeps Portland weird anymore. Shame on you, we need change in the food industry, so we can keep our children safe. Vote yes on 92.
Oh, and nice drawings, Dominic. You did the best you could.
Holy Shit! without even trying I saved the worst for last.
Fat boy what is this?
Monica, the writing objective here was Scary, not Random Word Association. I was only scared that i would read the whole thing. So i stopped.
