Re: “Saltzman Slams Leonard's $5million Computer

My understanding is that they want to purchase a complete system, software and hardware, for an integrated permitting system. Last I heard, they looked at the system being used by Salt Lake City and decided that was the one they wanted to buy. I'm not sure if Salt Lake City developed and owns the system, or if Salt Lake purchased it from another vendor.

The reason I know about it is I tried to get an opportunity to bid on the system but COP wasn't interested in custom development.

Re: “Roberta Phillip Out Of County Race

Running for office while you are working and also pretty much running your own campaign is a nearly impossible task. I know. I tried. It sucked.

Re: “Blood In The Bike Lanes

Right on Matt. We have to keep the pressure up on this, and on the county as well.

Re: “Today's Burning Questionland Question!

They actually have two snooker tables in the rec room at the Summerfield retirement community. But you have to either live there or have someone who lives there accompany you.

Re: “Oregon Unemployment—Slightly Better, But People Are "Giving Up" Looking For Work

The official unemployment numbers are pretty much useless. They don't count people who have given up. They don't count people whose benefits have expired. They don't count people who have been downgraded from full time to part time. The real unemployment in my opinion is much worse than the recession of the early eighties.

Despite that, I think this is not as bad as what we went through in the eighties because during that one the high unemployment was coupled with rampant inflation. The prices of everything were going up daily and the prime interest rate hit 20%!!
