    I set the standard. Let your busy brain deal with it.
    A few people feel the rain. Most people just get wet.

    If I had a dollar for every time capitalism was blamed for problems caused by the government I'd be a rich fat film maker in a baseball hat.

    Ha, ha, how true. I was driving from Portland to Corvallis one evening, and kind of in a hurry. I was going maybe 65 or so, back in the 55 era. Some guy in the right lane didnít like my speed so he pulls over right in front of me and slows down to 50. I pull over into the right lane and he does too. I finally get around him, but I remember him shaking his fist at me as I went past.

    Singapore - I can see how public caning for vagrancy and other misdemeanors would cleanse a city. Capital punishment for drug possession. Vienna? How can Portland be more like Vienna in your opinion?

    Public caning seems like a good place to start. We finished the week in Bend and that place is like that Jim Carrey bubble movie, I don't think I've seen a cleaner, well kept city in the USA. Of course they had sheriff's inmates cleaning the roadsides and medians so maybe Portland could start there.
