Not so long ago, Portland seemed to be a sleepy little town filled with Sunday drivers and no one seemed to care. That Portlandia joke about you go, no you go wasn’t far from the truth. I swear I didn’t hear a car horn honk for the better part of ten years, let alone people (young woman in a Subaru) yelling asshole because I’m turning left (at 20th and Stark at 2:30pm on a Thursday). I guess turning left is a dick move now. Still love Portland, but the times, they are a changin’.
