I work for the Wikimedia Foundation; we are the non-profit that supports Wikipedia and several related web sites.
Fiendishly adding content to Wikipedia.
Okay, seriously. I don't know why the rest of you don't join the lodge. We raise $$ for charities like the Oregon Food Bank and the Giving Tree; the booze is cheap; friendly service; free wife, and very soon a public computer terminal; pool tables, shuffleboard, Golden Tee; and hey, if you're not sold yet, we've got live bingo action and square dancing.
So pleased to see some increased media attention on this issue. A $40 million stadium is one thing, but this $100 million to $400 million project been below the public's radar for way too long.
Well done, Sarah! I think sometimes I have too MUCH patience for trying to explain this stuff, when sometimes pointing and laughing at the spittle-dripping geezer is the only rational approach.
Okay, I stand corrected on sex shows -- that's a surprise to me, and I wasn't familiar with State v. Ciancanelli. As far as I know, strippers are barred from crossing various lines that are deemed overly sexual -- but maybe that's something that applies only to a certain class of businesses. I guess I'm out of my element on that one.
As for euthanasia, that is a word with a very precise definition. What the Death with Dignity Act permits is nothing like euthanasia. Death with Dignity allows certain mentally competent, terminally ill patients to take an action on their own; euthanasia is the act of a doctor. Fundamentally, utterly different things.
JasonC, what a weird comment. Neither euthanasia nor live sex shows are legal in Oregon.
On reflection, I see that this post is a "work in progress." Consider some of your work effectively "crowdsourced." I'll be watching for the final product.
You're "curious"?? C'mon, ya lazy bum! A quick search reveals that, the day after Clinton's admission, the Big O asked "Can we ever trust him again?" but did not call for his resignation.
Of course there might be other editorials, but...I'm not paid to search 'em! Get to work Dan! ;)
D, did you notice the words "or" or "preferred" in the job listing? I don't see how this person's sour grapes should cause us concern. As a regular reader of Amy's reporting, including issues I have great familiarity with, it's clear to me that she has the kind of critical thinking, communication, and relationship-building skills emphasized in the listing. There are plenty of urban planning experts in the bureau(s); this position requires a communicator and a critical thinker. Amy will do fine, and this anonymous sourpuss, if as great as he/she claims, will also find a job. Next story?
