We're Graggalicious

The architecture dandies love us! They really, really love us!

But if course, like so many outsiders, they're missing the heart and soul of the place.

After writing a long, giddy paragraph to describe how "green" Portland is (based largely on LEED certification), they then praise 12 Portland buildings--few or none of which are LEED certified, and a few of which are famously reviled (The Portland Building? *Really*?)

Anybody else tired of self-congratulatory twittering over what shape the designer du jour made *his* concrete-glass box? Look! *Mine* has glass one *three* sides! Hey! Mine incorporates *wood slats*!

"second highest number of LEED-accredited buildings."

That's it? You can buy a LEED rating/audit for $50K. So we have enough dumb people that are willing to throw money at LEED.

BTW - If the editors love Portland so much, let them pay for taxes and water here and then send their kids to school here.
