@George, Really, really easily since I'm capable holding two different thoughts in my head.
For example, 2+2 = 4.
HOWEVER: 2(1+ 49) - 300 + 200 + 4 ALSO = 4.
I think it's fair to ask "why not just do 2+2," without in any way disparaging the number 4.
I would recommend using as blackmail material. Maybe you could get a threesome out of the deal.
"I didn't notice Dig Dug's nutsack until the second time I thumbed through the book"
JEEZ SPOILER ALERT
"Dual citizenship" = if push comes to shove Denis might side with the leaf people and suddenly we'll all be eating cold poutine for breakfast.
I'm enjoying this "Benedict Cumberbatch reads things" trend. Pls continue.
Excellent coverage on this, Denis! Go Merc news team!
"Let's put aside for a second the humanitarian part of this..."
How do you do that?
And we just built a shelter, is what I can't get over. It has 90 shelter beds and 130 permanent units, plus a drop-in day center which I'm assuming can accommodate a hundred+. It cost $40 million. Are we expected to build one of these each year? Are we heartless enemies of the needy if we don't shell out $40 million a year? Are we not trying our best?
"What do the city's risk managers say"
This is assuming that:
A) The city has risk managers to speak of
B) They don't just tell the Council what it wants to hear on any given issue
C) They aren't just the same people who green lit Randy and Sam's shenanagins
^^^^^^^^^^ Spoolo, where can I find one of these undersexed lattes you speak of? These Portland lattes are just waaay too sexed.
Buddy- Or maybe it's your mom? You should roll over to her corner on 82nd and Fremont and ask her.
My armchair, barely-informed reading of what Hales is doing is both an excellent job of covering his own ass by appearing to go way above and beyond, and also a complete waste of time since this weird land use won't be approved anywhere R2DToo wants or at a price the city will be ultimately be willing to pay, including the costs of legal challenges.
This Old Town lot for example - is the city really going to buy a derelict building and keep it derelict, i.e. make no seismic improvements and allow R2DToo to occupy only the bottom floor? What do the city's risk managers say about a situation where the city is pretty much admitting fault if the building collapses in an earthquake and kills "60-80 homeless people" and the volunteers serving them?
If you're going to build a shelter, build a shelter. This is just such a deeply weird way of going about things.
I ACCEPT YOUR DUEL CITIZENSHIP AND CHOOSE LIGHTSABERS AT DUSK.
Because it is our job, and were out here just trying to make a buck like the rest of you.
^^ Yep! If you can't find the International District from the stadium you are a retard. I used to live in Seattle too and while I do miss guys with jobs I prefer Portland.
Holmgate continues for another week? This town (well, this altweekly anyway) is hungry for controversy!
thanks for the live blog.
I've always assumed that Denis is actually Deney Terrio, erstwhile host of "Dance Fever," and Frenchified the spelling of his name in order to escape detection. Are you telling me that's not correct?
I think this Canadian citizenship thing is all part of a smokescreen to deny his disco past, just like all that Star Trek stuff. Canadians could never dance "The Bump."
OK, GRAHAM. FINE. YOU GOT ME. AND NOW ALL OF BLOGTOWN SHALL KNOW IT, TOO: I HOLD DUAL CITIZENSHIP.
PLEASE! LET THAT KNOWLEDGE CONTINUE TO COLOR YOUR JUDGMENTS OF MY BIASES AND FLAWS.
Imagine how much money the citizens of Portland save on having Rangers deal with the park issues rather than the high paid Police Officer. There is a lot of things that the Park Rangers do that the majority of Citizens realize and they do it with a soft approach compared to the heavier hands of Police interactions. Police do not have time for the smaller crimes and issues in the parks and they would just be ignored. Rangers are needed in this City.
I think that's the director, not Kathleen. And Corin Tucker. Which is still cool.
