Re: “New Column!

Agreed with burtreynlds. Article was pretty funny, but you got the age off by 5 to 10 years.

Re: “Is Portland Swallowing Up Astoria?

Good thing there are literally hundreds of miles of coastline south of Astoria. Coastie tip, travel south of Florence to escape the tourist vibe. Ignore the meth heads, that area is an undiscovered gem.

On second thought, never you mind about the Southern Oregon coast. Nothing to see there! Move along sir.

Re: “Is Portland Swallowing Up Astoria?

Seriously, no one has ever made such a statement. What you are "hearing" is the noise of fictitious writing prompts rattling around in your vacuous skull parts.

Further disclosure: The 'Goonies' house was remodeled years ago; it looks nothing like it did in the movie. That, at least, really happened.

Re: “I, Anonymous

I love the proper schooling on wallet chain origins. Yeh, IA is either experiencing serious entropy or their selectors need funemployment

Re: “I, Anonymous

The chain, as I understood it, is not to keep your wallet from getting pickpocketed. Both Bikers and Truckers have worn non-fold long wallets that don't create much of a bulge to sit on for long hours. Being longer than a normal wallet there is a possibility that they might fall out of someone's pants, so they're secured with a chain.

Re: “Is Portland Swallowing Up Astoria?

> the next Portlander who casually states "well, isn't Astoria practically a suburb of Portland?"

Nobody ever says that.

Re: “I, Anonymous

This is a pretty stupid rant, the answer to all of your dreams is clear, don't buy a chain wallet and don't befriend anyone with a chain wallet so that you don't have an aneurism. FYI, the chain wallet has a function and guess what: It has NOTHING to do with fear of pick-pockets or fashion. Ever hear a chain wallet also called a "biker wallet"? It keeps your wallet on your person and not in the street, not on the bar, not on your dresser and not in your car. Anyone who regularly rides a bike or motorcycle in regular pants or who tends to be forgetful has a use for one. If you're into fashion there are many types of chains and wallets to fit your style but for those of us who want simple functionality it's not a fashion statement, lol.

Re: “To Each Days Own

Oh, and what did they do to you, anonie? That you thought they thought they were all so different? Was it...appearing to have a good time? Clearly were getting laid, is that it?
Maybe just maybe they know damn well that fashion is transitory, and they didn't just make up their look on their own. Perhaps they're focused on their lives and stuff. Consider.

Also, is Portland home to hundreds of naked sea lions? I THINK NOT!

Re: “Is Portland Swallowing Up Astoria?

Portland is a black hole that will eventually swallow up everything around it, including Astoria. But some shit will get shot out its opposite side and settle down in Salem.

Re: “Portland Officers Shot, then Tased, the Knife-Wielding Man Killed Yesterday

IMO, that's not a 'large knife'; both blades are under 3" long, and Oregon has some of the most lenient knife laws in the country, which makes that knife quite legal to possess and carry. Surely, pulling it on a police officer represents poor judgement, but probably isn't something he deserved to be killed for.

See link below for summary of Oregon knife laws;

I can't imagine you've heard that more than once. If you have, it was likely the same person. If not, then punch away.
