In Portland, Everything is Okay

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Thu, Jan 8, 2009 at 8:24 AM


Seattle, what the fuck?

Reading our sister paper to the north is giving me nightmares: Three members of their local hiphop scene cowardly shot during a show. A threatened Ricin attack on 11 local gay bars. Seriously, when did the Emerald City turn into Gaza?

That said, can we just take a moment to appreciate how nice things are here in Portland right now? Not to discount what has happened in Seattle, but I'd just like to sit back and acknowledge our harmonious nightlife, our peaceful music scene, and how nonthreatening Portland living is. No shootings. No threatened attacks by homophobic terrorist. Let's keep it this way.
