The dream of the '90s is alive, cont'd

Here's just what Portland needs: Let's bring back "clean money" so that we can have more unemployable know-nothings in City Hall. We've got plenty of tax dollars to burn.

Meanwhile, one of voter-owed elections' biggest flops has bought a bar along the Burnside-Couch couplet. Let's hope he's luckier in business than in politics.

Sounds like separation anxiety from the pork-barrel?

Wasn't VOE of circa 2005 vintage?

Sounds too formal for me-"Guild"? Must be that 1700's feeling ambiance.

And where's the parking??? There is none, just park on the street in front of a neighbor's house down a side street. But I'm sure Jessie will require all patrons to take transit, or he won't serve them.

Ah, the post-election classic: "But voters were just too stupid to realize what they were voting on! If we just 'educate' them, they will surely vote differently next time."

We heard that a lot after this last election.

But I have to admire the chutzpah of his argument that a program which explicitly costs the taxpayers money doesn't cost the taxpayers any money. Quite the Jedi mind-trick.

Clean money. Hell clean up the city. I was in downtown this afternoon to do a little needed shopping at bookstore. Someone needs to grab a broom and a hose. The sidewalks were a mess; cigarette butts, leaves,general trash. Twenty years ago the city seemed to take some pride in keeping the place clean. Guess that attitude has been lost. Even some of the sales clerks at the store I was were rude. Nothing like walking away from a customer. Guess I'll be buying my books elsewhere. Rudeness is catching. Gotta go take a shower.
