There were quite a few people that were entertained by the large
headline on the front page of the Oregonian that appeared about 1992
that said "Trojan plagued by Defects" in two inch type.

(As with many Wikipedia articles there are a few factual errors on this
page, but it is a good starting point for future research)

Par for the course.

Both the anti-immigrant and "smart growth" movements really amount to saying
"this town was exactly big enough on the day I moved in -- now that I'm here
the gates should be locked forever."

But of course any leftist will tell you that hypocrisy is only wrong if the
Right does it. Al Gore's new mansion is just the latest example.

How does this work in the Pacific northwest? Do they have California
ex-patriate clubs and businesses so ex-Californians never encounter natives?
Do ex-Californians where special glasses filtering out all they don't
believe exists?

I have never traveled anywhere that I didn't meet someone born there.
Amazing!

Hm. I put in "portland,california" in the Google Maps search bar and came
up with an intersection in Louisville, Kentucky. I wonder what intersection
I'd come up with if I used "louisville,kentucky".

A newspaper Web site comes up with news from the San Joaquin Valley.

It also turns up restaurant ads featuring Portland restaurants selling
California-style pizza.

Uh, huh. The truth is revealed! Portland truly is trying to attract
Californians with pizza everyone else despises.
