<<These difficulties can be remedied by a nice sales tax in Oregon, don't you think fleg?
I'll see your OR sales tax and raise you a WA income tax. >>
I was in Portland a week ago to see my nephew graduate from Reed College with a BA in the Arts (music).
What I liked best was having signs announcing the name of arterials a block before you got to the street. Nice gesture towards those new to the city.
My favorite visit to Portland was when I was taking my boat from the mouth of the Columbia to Lewiston, Idaho. I came in from downstream via the Multnomah Channel, seeing all the nice houseboats that line the channel, then came up the Willamette River into the heart of the downtown area and tied up to a nice public dock while I walked about town.
Can't beat that!~
