True enough - but thus far, it hasn't been allowed to metastasize.

And taking it to heart, it seems.

As the old saying goes, "Good fences make good neighbors."

The term does seem to have a wide degree of fluidity among Demcratics, doesn't it?

I imagine that once they get going with that, the Porkland Democratics who control Salem will start pushing for a statewide expansion (again).

I'm sure it'd be a good place to start - although in Oregon, most of the union membership is composed of public employees.

Oh, that's right. Pretty much the same thing, though.
Obviously, the solution is to increase taxes again. That always works!

True, in many cases - but you've got to admit - that screenshot of grizzlies fishing in the river is pretty darned cool. And a lot safer than visiting the place in person. Some animals adapt well to zoos (particularly cats, bats, mongoose, and the like), but others simply don't.

That's some special kind of stupid, right there. Unbelievable. At least he didn't take anyone with him.

Ya, Carestream's talking about the rail line that runs over Santiam Pass. I know the line to Astoria got buried a few years back; if I recall correctly, they turned the section around the Port into some sort of hiking trail.
True, those outdoor grows down in the emerald triangle reportedly use a heck of a lot of water.

I suppose in New Mexico we'll be seeing more motorcycle cops waiting behind billboards and roadside bushes. Around here, they seem to prefer to hang out on on-ramps.

Haha! In this case, there's one less fool, but I believe that in the end your fear sill prove justified.

Interesting message, indeed; could be an overload. I wouldn't say that zoos are entirely outmoded, but yeah - polar bears don't belong in any zoo in the lower 48. Of course, orcas don't belong in little cement tanks, either; I've noticed that Sea World's taken to running a string of huggy-bear kissy-face commercials of late.

True, ZZ - but it's not as though California's going to take this lying down: 6. California There's a steep price to pay for sunshine and ocean waves all year long. California has one of the biggest economies in the world, but managed to rank as the No. 6 worst state to make a living. The average income of $53,890 does not go far with a cost of living index of 138.2, the second highest in the nation. Furthermore, unemployment is high and workplace safety is poor. The estimated state tax on average income is $2,523, respectable when compared to other high-cost states.

Oddly enough, a lot of cops - particularly in the Midwest - seem to get away with this sort of thing. I read a while back about a case in which a guy was suing because he got pulled over for a minor traffic infraction in Nebraska and the cops searched his car. He had a fair amount of cash in there, as he'd closed his bank account and was moving to the west coast to put together a startup. They confiscated the money, although the guy was never even charged, much less convicted, of any crime. When he got a lawyer and put up a fuss, they offered him half of his money back. He wants it all returned.

I wouldn't mind their continued demonstrations of ignorance if they didn't keep spending millions of our tax dollars to do it.

Perhaps they figured the geese wouldn't eat the imported stuff.

Though actually, most of my learning was done outside of class. Mine, as well.

Teaching seems to be a lost art, as well.

Chest-shot suicides are actually more common than I'd imagined. OTOH, there are your Vince Fosters.

I found it amusing - Granny's campaign seems to feature the theme "rope 'n' chains".
