So I'd say I used to love portland when it was awesome, but the town I live in is awesome like portland used to be, but now! Tre Rosat is owned by oregon ducks, a nice new restaurant. The bike shop is owned by some women from portland. A gallery..? Operated by a portland man. The coffee shop and church? You get the idea.. oh yeah me? Portland Native. Bud Clark said the value of a city is it's people. I think the simpsons did it. Unlike the people who now live in Portland, who sadly... not from portland.
