Like PDXOutdoors, I too had to turn off the radio because I was on the verge of hurling it through the window into the street. It has long been my opinion that the only thing more annoying than Portland's hand-wringing, introspection and general inferiority complex is the tendency transplanted New Yorkers have of constantly framing their experiences in PDX as in contrast to (usually superior) New York. Please. If NY is so great, so dynamic, so diverse, so alive, then why did any of you move here to our podunk backwater to begin with? Portland is Portland, and it owes nothing to anyone who chooses to move here. Having a little pity party because our (somewhat laughable) "World Trade Center" strikes you as insensitive? Please go back to New York and tell everyone how ghastly it is here. That would be a huge service to all of us.
