Occupy Portland is now entering it's second week and continues to grow larger, more complex, more problematic and more entertaining by the day.  As I have said before the show Portlandia can never be as funny as the reality of Portland.  You can't write stuff like this.
It's a microcosm brew of many ingredients of Portland Weird.  A hoppy, heady mix of PC Organic Progressives, Hipsters, Homeless, Free-Range Mentally Ill, City Government officials (as well as those seeking office) and Police all concentrated right in the heart of the city and fermenting like a bad batch of homebrew. 
Above you see Amanda Fritz a member of city council addressing a small percentage of the 99% like a patient public school teacher lecturing a bunch of 8 year olds in the typical passive-aggressive Portland doublespeak.  I heard her say that the peoples first amendment rights "trump" city park ordinances (so it's legal to be illegal?) bbbbbuuuuuuuttttttttt your ruining the park environment and your taxing the limited resources of a city already running on empty bbbbbbbbuuuuuutttttttt we are still  real proud of you for standing up for your free speech rights bbbbbuuuuuuutttttttt remember your really only 1% of the 99%.

I love reading your thoughts, references, and looking through your pictures. Thanks, for letting others view your 'perspectives'.

Sorry I will remain a largely anonymous reader/viewer; as I am not a photographer; I luckily fumbled upon your blog through a random internet search, for some equally random subject. Just wanted to say something, and thank-you!
