DEPORTED IN PORTLAND: MEDICAL TOURISM VIA TIGARD AND BEAVERTON

If you need to be tough, but are a secret wussy man, bring the right back up. I brought Jason Witten to get deported in Portland. Not too many tougher than that. Together we deported in Portland; both of us on just this side of crazy celebration, yet calm.

SAVE OREGON, MOVE TO PORTLAND

Moving to Portland for the food and music? Or to save Oregon? It’s not Austin, Texas, but you’re heading the right direction. The Southwest here is a part of town, not part of the country.

PORTLAND MOVE REVIEW: WHERE TO LOOK

TIGARD LIBRARY LAST RETURN

Tigard Library fans? One of the biggest just checked out. Thomas Jefferson said he couldn’t live without books. Life without books? TJ sold his library to Congress after a bad fire. Turns out America couldn’t live without a Library of Congress, couldn’t live without books, like Jefferson. Joan Hensey couldn’t live without books, either; she […]

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MOTHERS IN LAW DRINK
