Re: “Claim Dumpers

I looked and looked for the paperwork online, where to send a claim, what information is needed to complete the claim...It's not there, surprise, surprise. The application can probably be found in public employee break rooms all over this city, and nowhere else.

Re: “Don't Be That Guy

I know these guys. They feel as though they're adventurous, after all they ride their bikes everywhere, right? The reality is that they only know one or two routes and are just unwilling to try anything new.
It sad really because all of those side routes are a Portland that is a hell of a lot more interesting then coasting down Hawthorne while an army of drivers eye murder you all of the way into Downtown Portland. Also, cars come in waves, you can pull over for a second, let people pass and then just continue biking it's not that hard of a thing.

Re: “Don't Call Me Angel

The problem is that he is an employee. He is on the clock and there to work, not harass the patrons (emphases on patrons-they pay the bills).
We've all been to places like this, waiting in a line that is getting longer and longer while the host/hostess is chatting with friends, or waiting at our tables (for water, or food, or the bill) while a raucous conversation is going on in the back room.
The problem is that Portlanders are too nice, too conditioned with these niceties. They're afraid to speak up: Which by the way is the only way you will ever get what you want.
I managed restaurants for 10 years during my 20s and early 30s and I can tell you, there is nothing that got my attention faster than a customer who just got up and walked out.
Don't get me wrong, some of my oldest, dearest friends started off as patrons, but when they were in my restaurant they were customers first.
I can't even imagine one of my employees putting hands on a customers. The potential for a harassment lawsuit...Jesus what an idiot.

Re: “And the Mercury Decides: Say No to GMO Labeling, Even If It Feels Terrible

Shit, I already posted but this one was nagging me too. I question the ethics, from the point of any publication, of taking a stance on any legislation while accepting money to commercialize for either side of the debate. When I look to the right of my screen I see a blurb from that commercial we have all grown to hate so much. The one with the "family farmer", that is just so insulting to our intelligence, as though we don't know that "family farmer" isn't some kind of code that describes a franchiser/franchisee relationship with big agro that is rapidly choking real family farmer either out of business or into nominally forced indenture.

Re: “And the Mercury Decides: Say No to GMO Labeling, Even If It Feels Terrible

Wrong.


It's a potshot across the bow of big agro...And they ARE scared. Judging by the amount of money they've sunk in trying to stop this, they are petrified.

Just as a perspective; Oregonians spend about $593 million per week, about $28.5 billion per year, on food.

Oregonians only make up about 1% of the country's population. Imagine if this new labeling system took off and another, more populous, state passed a similar law (A state like say California which has 8 times our population -Ouch would that hurt. )
