Only in Portland, OR

In mid-May, Portland police Officer James Crooker went to Southeast Portland on a patrol call. With a few minutes to spare, he decided to get a coffee.

So, he popped into the Red & Black cafe on Southeast 12th Avenue near Oak Street, bought a coffee and was heading out when a customer approached him, saying she appreciates the hard job that police officers do every day in Portland.

One of the co-owners of the cafe, John Langley, has another point of view. While the officer and customer were chatting, he walked up and asked Crooker to leave, saying he felt uncomfortable having a uniformed officer in the vegan cafe.


Hundreds of thousands of folks from California use to visit Oregon. The locals had a saying. "We love for you to visit, but please don't stay."

See what even legal immigration can do?

Helen Thomas is dropped

It is with a heavy heart that Nine Speakers, Inc. announces its resignation as the agent for Helen Thomas, Dean of the White House Press Corps.

Ms. Thomas has had an esteemed career as a journalist, and she has been a trailblazer for women, helping others in her profession, and beyond.

However, in light of recent events, Nine Speakers is no longer able to represent Ms. Thomas, nor can we condone her comments on the Middle East.

You see Helen, some of us know who is actually causing the problems.

Take me to your leader

Might as well be science fiction.

We are shutting down NASA, worshipping environmental wackos and opening Mosques.

The long night is beginning but fear not. The light will return.
