@Graham: "H & M; the Ikea of fashion."
Ahhhh, that statement made my nipples hard. I love them both. The only way they could make it better would be to just add another floor to IKEA and move H&M in there. "H&MIKEA" has a nice ring!
@Matthew D: If that's true, the dog should have to demonstrate that his job and living situation can support a middle-aged hobo. This should set an example for dogs everywhere who think they can just bring any street person home on a whim, never realizing how much the yearly costs for food, medical and alcohol will run. If dogs would think twice before they just fell in love with big sad bloodshot eyes and a scraggly beard, the homeless shelters would not be so overcrowded.
“I take psychiatric medication, anti-depressants, and they’re pretty strong. I bought a pint of vodka, and I only drank about an inch of it—but I blacked out. I don’t remember even being in the store.”
I don't care if him and the dog are in love and planning a June wedding. This man is not capable of taking care of himself, let alone a dog. The dog should be adopted out, and he should have to prove that he is responsible enough before he can legally own an animal again.
So he's homeless and depressed. If a guy with a nice house and depression did this and no one came forward on his behalf to take the dog, there wouldn't even be a discussion. It would get adopted out, period. The idea that the homeless are exempt from the rules of society sure as hell is doing nothing to help them ever join society again.
I want the water bureau to prove it's harmless. Someone over there needs to drink a glass of seagull poop on live TV. It's only fair that they get to choose who in the bureau does it. Maybe it could be the booby prize for one of the Secret Santa gifts this year.
Then I can believe what they tell me.
Ooooh, 788! And we're barely even trying now! Do it for Mary Volm! Do it for Janelle! Do it for every poor wretched psychopath who has ever gone onto the Internet and started trashtalking!
Possibly not. A Google search of "Mary Volm" ranks this article ninth, after her Facebook page, her ZoomInfo page, and a Portland Business Journal mention, among others. The Mercury's own coverage of Mary's "limo incident" comes up in the number two spot. That is just sad.
Please, keep your comments on topic, lest this thread fall by the wayside in the big world of Mary Volm's career. Remember, that although Janelle is the reason we stayed, if it weren't for Mary Volm, we'd have never made it this far.
Perhaps someone could forward this link to Mary Volm's staff. Certainly she would want to participate here.
And I love poetry. Who doesn't? I wrote a poem too. Want to read it?
WHEN CRAZY AND CYBERSPACE COLLIDE
By Candice I. Hazasupeena
My fingers are pounding, commenting for you
I might not make it to the 800 mark tonight
I hear there’s trolls under that bridge
Right now, I only see we are at 783
This will be a roller coaster ride of psychological dementia
The shrill cry of the crazed idiot TYPING IN ALL CAPS
Tells me this will be the worst thing that ever happened to me
I’m attacked by rapists only I can see
I take great pride in announcing whenever possible
I’m always below the US federal poverty line
I’m constantly judged
Just because your tax dollars paid for my education
Thank you Oregon Opportunity Grants
I want to be that person who gets continually
Harassed in an Internet blog thread
I want to be the first ever post to reach 1000
Chock-full with all the conspiracies against me
The voices in my head tell me
I want to make a mockery of poor Mary’s campaign
Every Mercury reader will know my name
By copying, pasting, posting, reposting — utter nonsense
No worries in the land of make believe I occupy
Into the future, riding on Internet 6
