Not just any bookstore – a giant bookstore that occupies an entire block, and an independent one at that. With thousands upon thousands of new and used books, gifts with smart messages and a great coffee shop. Also, someone in there is a cat lover, which automatically elevates it to my top favourite places in Portland.

To the huge disappointment to fellow coffee drinkers, the building management has decided to move to a meager 8oz cup to limit our consumption of coffee from the machine in the lounge. This is a critical bottleneck when we are trying to grab a cup of latte on the run, only to be limited to a meager 8oz beverage. I’ve asked them to bring back the larger cups but they have refused.
If you want the larger cups brought back, please complain directly to [name deleted for prevention of sanity].”
A great day to you, my friends, from the entitled and rightfully outraged residents, here at the top of the Hell’s Kitchen Towers!

”…no other nation on Earth comes close to experiencing the frequency of mass shootings that we see in the United States. No other developed nation tolerates the levels of gun violence that we do. Every time this happens, we’re told that tougher gun laws won’t stop all murders; that they won’t stop every deranged individual from getting a weapon and shooting innocent people in public places. But the evidence shows that they can stop some killings. They can save some families from heartbreak. We are not helpless here. And until all of us stand up and insist on holding public officials accountable for changing our gun laws, these tragedies will keep happening”.
“We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalises racist sentiments; leaders who demonise those who don’t look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people.”
“It has no place in our politics and our public life. And it’s time for the overwhelming majority of Americans of goodwill, of every race and faith and political party, to say as much – clearly and unequivocally.”
