I wonder if the firearms debate is fueling people's defiance. So, in a night of socializing, the conversation goes like this
"Them stupid liberals and n- president ain't gonna tell me what to do..." Lou puts down his cards and gets up to scratch himself.
"Yeah Betsy, show us what you got, girl..." Loraine swigs her Miller and ashes twice on the concrete floor
Betsy runs upstairs her tank top strap stretched down her shoulder. She's half drunk but, snatches up her rifle, " Look girlfriends, my man bought me this new.... " Bam.
commented on Playing Russian Roulette With Your Online Social Presence
I started FB early on and at first didn't have friends to connect with on it. Finally every one else caught on it and I grew tired of it. I deleted my account for one year. Within eight hours of me being back on FB, I received a message from a local publisher to write for thier news outlet. This built my confidence and led to other writing gigs. I now use FB to advertise my writing. I guess I am using it like LinkedIn.

Yeah, sold out and bummed because I am missing it. On the brighter side, it drove me to check more shows and I bought Billy Bragg tickets! So, Dear Stranger, there's that.
commented on In Which Ark Lodge Cinemas Saves a Movie From Its Own Mediocre Direction
My friend and I spent Superbowl Sunday in Columbia City. We ate brunch at Lottie's, had drinks at Columbia City Theater, then watched Silver Linings Playbook at the Ark. My friend pleasantly commented on the price of movie and a popcorn. The theater itself is a wonderful experience. Since the Light Rail has opened, we have made Columbia City a steady destination and loved the freedom to stretch out in our city in a way that is more convenient.

Wow. I used to go there almost every day in 2001/2002 when I worked in the 1201 E Pike building.
It's amazing to see the transformation this has made.

Almost been hit after 4 pm in last couple weeks at the same corner just walking down to Broadway (10th and Aloha corner). I use an unused bicycle reflector and attach it to my backpack. Even when the white man signal says it's okay to walk, I make sure the people in the stopped cars notice me by waving my arms widly, and peering through their car windows to notice me. Still, this, only sometimes works.
