Re: “Good Morning, News: Dead Dogs Have Souls! PSU Cops Will Have Guns! The Government Has Money!

I guess you could call someone you've never met a "dipshit" for thinking it's unfortunate that someone spent 22 years in prison on charges that were eventually dismissed.

Or you could civilly disagree.

But that would mean we lived in a world without anonymous internet comments.

Re: “Cops Explain Why I Was Detained Longer Than Other Reporters During Ferguson March: Commander Didn't Recognize Me

I'm impressed, Andy from Nutriatown!

You're the first person in maybe 25 years to stick an "e" at the end of my name as part of a schoolyard taunt. Which means you somehow think it's funny and appropriate to trade in stereotypes about women being weaker than men. That's the point of that insult, right? It's supposed to sting because you compared me with a "girl," right? And being like a "girl" is icky and unmanly, right?

You could have played that a lot of different ways, if you thought I was whining too much, without resorting to misogyny. Try harder next time.

Re: “Portland's Up for a Michael Brown Protest, After All

I love that you looked at the decking, Dirk. I thought to do it only after we were past it, heading down to SW 3rd on Washington.

Everything ended peacefully and brightly after the flareup at Providence, a partly silent march down to Waterfront Park where speeches were made.

Re: “UPDATED: Chief Reese Says Cops Who Declared "I Am Darren Wilson" on Facebook Face Internal Investigation, Calls Actions "Inflammatory"

Sarah: You're correct. It's not against the law for anyone, even sworn officers, to express political views away from work. The police union even has a PAC that raises money from members to give to political candidates and causes.

That said, free speech doesn't insulate you from criticism. Nor does it protect from policies, like the police bureau's, that prohibit the use of things like badges when expressing those views. That seems to have crossed the line, in Reese's and Hales' minds, from speaking for oneself to attempting to speak for a larger organization without authorization.

We're not much like the rest of the country.

Re: “Oregon Legalizes Marijuana, Re-Elects John Kitzhaber, and Makes Other Questionable Decisions: Read Our Live Blog!

Hi, Kelcy. That was a dispatch from our writer Suzette Smith. I haven't asked yet if she was being gender-specific in her appraisals of the room's denizens.

Re: “It's the Mercury's Endorsement Guide!

Oh, my sweet Euphonius: I'll have you know we posted that one *before* they did. And then we found yesterday that they agreed with us.
