If ever there is an example of just how ridiculous Republicans make themselves appear, it is the furor over Willamette Week reporter Nigel Jaquiss seen writing “blah, blah, blah” on his note pad during a recent candidate endorsement interview.

It seems that Mark Callahan, claiming to be a Republican this time, took umbrage to Jaquiss’ writing that during an answer given by his opponent, Jo Rae Perkins over the phone.

According to KGW News, it irked Callahan enough for him to light into Jaquiss with “I see what you’re writing down there, you just wrote down ‘blah, blah, blah, blah, blah’ for everything that Joe Rae said. Joe Rae is a respectable woman. Why are you not respecting her?”

Portland’s Homeless Rate Increasing

by lewwaters

From KGW:

“The latest numbers are in. Portland’s homeless problem is worsening, despite tens and tens of millions dollars spent on the problem over the last five years.”

“The most recent count shows homelessness is up seven percent overall. There are now more than 1,700 people sleeping on the streets and about 1,000 more sleeping in shelters and low-rent or subsidized motels.”

Portland Housing Commissioner Nick Fish says, “the city must stay the course.”

“We know what the long-term solution is: homes with services for people that need it. It’s expensive but we get great outcomes and it’s humane, pragmatic and I think it’s the right thing to do.”
