Local coffee that is *always* better than Starbucks: Cellar Door Coffee, Courier Coffee, Oblique Coffee, Ristretto Roasters, Heart, Common Grounds, Coava, Portland Roasters, Public Domain, Red E, Water Avenue, even not locally owned Stumptown.
Support local businesses. Better coffee and better for Portland.
Alex, lamesauce. Real coffee aficionados do not drink "Americanos". Ick.
I agree with the Lone Vet that we need to replace Fish and Saltzman with people who *truly* represent the people of Portland.
Well, well, well.
"Oregon's public health director is leaving the position, amid a threatened lawsuit and accusations the agency colluded with pro-fluoride advocates on the release of an oral health report."
Let's not forget that Clean Water Portland is calling for a Department of Justice investigation of OHA due to it's relationship with the pro-fluoride lobby group, Upstream Public Health. OHA allegedly aided the lobby group in forming their talking points, distributed campaign yard signs and perhaps much more. I wonder who will be the next to resign ay Upstream?
If we can simply look at what happened here in Portland, it clears up everything.
1. A lobby group uses the 2007 OR "Smile Survey" data to declare a "dental crisis" and lobbies City Council ($9000) to fluoridate PDX. City Council obeys 5-0.
2. The 2012 OR Smile Survey comes out proving that not only do we *not* have a dental crisis but our teeth are better than the fluoridated areas in Oregon!
IOW, fluoridation of the water had no positive effect on
Note: it took two Freedom of Information Act requests to get the data released before the vote. Someone did not want us to see it!
Before you vote please watch:
Yep, those 59% of African Americans, 49% of Asians and 72% of Latinos voting against fluoridation should definitely quit with their white, privileged lack of concern for anybody else.
You guys are sub-Beavis and Butthead at best. I lost what little respect I almost had for you due to your childish articles on this very serious public health issue.
Too bad you couldn't do some, like, you know, like journalism?
Oh look, an OHSU doctor was just caught red-handed stealing signs outside the headquarters of Clean Water Portland. The good doctor also works for the Oregon Health Authority, the state agency that was deliberately delaying the results of the new Oregon Smile Survey. http://www.katu.com/politics/Man-caught-st…
OSHU doctor caught stealing signs from Clean Water Portland headquarters!
