This just in from Forbes:

Bohemian Bargain

Portlanders love their city for its relaxed pace and natural offerings: The city sits at the nexus of two great rivers, surrounded by immense forests and hushed volcanoes. They are just as proud of their downtown art galleries, eateries and brew pubs as they are of their wilderness. Politically conservative folk and go-go business people should avoid this metropolis of 1.9 million. Most residents are strictly liberal and favor slow growth.

Say what? Wasn’t Portland just voted #4 on Forbes’ list of most overpriced places to live? How come we’re all of a sudden a “Bohemian Bargain?” I think Forbes is a bit confused.

At least they warned the right to go elsewhere. 😆 And it’s a nice shot of the city. From the Pittock Mansion, it looks like.

    • Evil is like a shadow - it has no real substance of its own, it is simply a lack of light. You cannot cause a shadow to disappear by trying to fight it, stamp on it, by railing against it, or any other form of emotional or physical resistance. In order to cause a shadow to disappear, you must shine light on it.
