events that would be horribly by oneself, wonderful with a friend or three
super positive art collective! Count on them for laid-back community art events (i.e. free beer at city hall, back yard space rocket launch) and a good slice of pie.

Yep, today I woke up sad. This is my last Good Morning, News!
@babygorilla - sorry! I screwed that up! Changed it now.
I edited this post today: Turns out Basic Rights Oregon referenced the ability to get medically-necessary mastectomies, not vasectomies, as I originally reported. Sorry about that.
I want that dog!!
Sorry I'm an idiot. Typo changed in this post from "write" to "right."
@George - You're right, that's a good point I completely left out of this post. For what it is, the Portland Aquarium is alright. But there are many problems with showcasing captive animals for profit. Part of why the aquarium seemed good this morning is that it is mostly small critters—like fish and the iguanas—who seemed pretty content in the manufactured living quarters. The otters would likely be better left in the wild.
@Rollergirl - Since you asked, I'm not interviewing witnesses because every TV station in town spent last night at the center, interviewing anyone they could who had been in or near the mall, including many witnesses who were clearly in shock. Every witness I've seen interviewed supports the story the police are telling here. However, if there are any witnesses whose experience contradicts the narrative replayed endlessly over the past 24 hours, I will definitely try to interview them and include their perspective in coverage.
In the meantime, there is nothing to be gained here by rehashing the same horrific incident from the angle of every person who happened to be nearby.
What I hope to offer, instead, is an accurate and reliable account of what happened and coverage that focuses on the pain violence inflicts rather than building up a mythos around the shooter.
