Moving Saturday Market?

Thursday, November 10, 2005
Moving Saturday Market? Terrible idea. Lots of reasons, but my main feelings are a) we don't need new development in old town, b) the location is great where it is because it affords easy mass transit access and easy pedestrian access, and c) it's easy to find. A new spot for a cultural fair isn't the message Portland should send. We've made a national name for ourselves in preserving the history of our city and we should make an effort to keep it that way.

Oh my god, dude. That's the worst news I've ever heard. I think I'm gonna cry.

It's the fucking Californians, isn't it. Every time my city get's fucked up, they're behind it.
