Occupy Portland

I took a couple of photos of the cleanup of the Occupy camps downtown the other day. Things sure got cleared out of there in a hurry. Currently the parks are all fenced off and guarded by many police.

Airport X-ray scanners: can we get rid of these things yet?

I'm looking forward to visiting my family around Christmas, but I am really not looking forward to going through security at the airport. Specifically I am really hesitant to put my self and family, especially my two children, through the scanners of unproven safety. The alternative pat-down is also an unsavory option, being invasive and humiliating. I wish taking a train were a viable option.

There were chicks everywhere


A random weird thing stapled to a utility pole. Near as I can tell it says:

There were chicks everywhere, white as stars. Strangely, they were silent and soft and (aberrant?) pleasant to look upon.
