If you had read it though Damos, they stated a couple of times that they DO NOT, say again, DO NOT want Portlanders to not get the wrong idea about our side of the state.
"The people here are no different than anywhere else, though their daily concerns may not reflect mine. More than anything I want Portlanders to know that." ---Quoted from PAC 1:15 pm
We are your normal everyday people. Alot of us have generational roots, others are fresh to the town and area. Everyone here is part of our big family. The natives, the whites, the african-americans, mexican americans, and the list goes on. I missed this years Round Up due to being deployed to Afghanistan. So me and my military family missed out on a milestone of our home. This is our tradition, our heritage, even yours. Even if you choose not to accept it, you trace your roots back a few generations and you most likely descended from settlers of the "wild west".
So as p-town-boy said, "I invite you to come to next years Pendleton Round-Up to see for yourself how the other side of the state lives.
I know you will change your mind!!!"
If you choose not to, you can spend the rest of your life in your own polluted mind.
