Re: “Rally For Justice Follows Campbell Cop Shooting

Some contractor out there has convinced the Portland Police that buying a bunch of expensive "non-lethal" toys can solve their problems and take the place of training and good judgement.

Re: “This Week's Mercury Film Section.

Would love to see Heat in the theater again. I went to see it two days in a row when it came out--and I think that's the only movie I've ever seen twice in the theater.

Re: “Sprawl Vs. Open Space

Big surprise that people want to eat their cake twice. True, a farmer's land outside the UGB is only worth $7,000 per acre. But that farmer bought the land at farm prices (or it was given to his family through the homestead act) and now he can sell it at farm prices, which have risen at the same rate or faster as other kinds of real estate.

Plus, Farmers in Oregon have benefited from big tax subsidies, which means Fred pays way less in taxes than his neighbor.

And, without the UGB, there would be a LOT more land to develop and land would be a lot cheaper than it is now--so he wouldn't get the kind of $$ he thinks he would get, anyway.

What exactly is he losing, other than the chance to cash out at the expense of the public as a whole? Actually, I suppose that sounds pretty all-American to me...
