Go Be Nice

Tough week.

Usually I'd be extoling the virtues of our fair and fairly odd city here, cracking wise and trying to impart my own perspective of what it's like to live here.  This week, though, my mind is elsewhere.

It's in Boston, a city that's been wounded in a viciously cruel way by two young men who decided that some ideology, or some perceived slight, had to be illustrated with the spattered blood and shattered limbs of fellow human beings.  This is what I'd like to say to…

Outside

There's a downside to having my desk facing a window. Today I just want to be outside.

I just craned my neck to bring the surface of the parking lot into view, because it may be raining but I can't tell for sure. Yup, pavement is wet, so we're having some of that patented invisible Willamette Valley rain, a rain you can't see unless you peer intently at a dark surface some distance away. If I were to step outside right now, to stand in the wet, I would just barely feel it.…
