Re: “Duggar Family Values

Sharia law by another name. It's okay though because they're the right color, and call their imaginary friend by the culturally affirmed pseudonym.

Re: “Help with Baggage

However it works, I just wish people would stop calling it "sharing"

It's not sharing, it's selling. I'm not here to debate whether or not people have a right to sell their property (goods or services).

But stop pretending it's something other than straight-up, bald-faced capitalism.

Re: “LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

C. Marchandt

What are you, new? Because I'm calling Bullshit. The best Bahn Mi in town is at 68th & Broadway, a section of town that's been a Vietnamese/Asian enclave for at least 35 years. Furthermore, my favorite taco truck down town is owned and run by a family that lives 4 blocks from me in Kenton. Which subsequently is another 3 blocks up to King Burrito. Now admittedly I don't know where those cats live, but I'll bet you dollars to donuts they ain't commuting in from East County or Hillsboro. (For those of us who've been here since the 70's, that's anywhere east of 205)

"Outer East Portland" (as the p.c. crowd calls it) is likely in the future to contribute to the broadening of the cultural landscape due in it's newfound status as the neighborhood of the poor and recent immigrants (which in turn will draw the next generation of artists and musicians etc) , but up until the 90's it's was as whitebread as anywhere in the city.

Re: “Cool Old Lady at the Hawthorne Bus Stop

Fuck yes. That little thing, some people just have it. Like checking your pace by half a step to let the turning car get out of the street before you charge into the cross walk, moving over to the clear lane if a car is merging onto the highway. Moving over if someone wants by, holding a door. Yes to all of this.

Re: “Use Rubbers in the Classroom

My grandmother called erasers rubbers too. I don't know if that was because of the material they were made of or the act of removing the pencil marks.

Re: “2014 Resolutions

No.

You do not get to start a thread saying "If you ride through a stop sign and get hit by a car" and end it with don't say 'but cars kill people'"

The fact of the matter is that very few cycling fatalities (very few fatalities period) are caused by cyclists running stop signs, though plenty are caused by cars running stop signs.

Re: “So, Portland is the Beer Capitol of the World, Now?

Hell yeah. And when a bunch of people go blind from drinking unregulated, uninspected hooch, we can just sue. Or whistle, for all the good it will do.
