- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I agree with you on many of your points. There is a sense of connection I feel with the city of Portland when I read "The Portland Mercury," and "Willamette Weekly."
They cover things I want to hear about locally; from restaurants, places to go, outlandish local groups/organizations, and economic/political/environmental stuff that has great local importance and impact.
While newspapers that cover a broad base of things (the oregonian, seattle post intelligencer) may be dying, I think newspapers like "The Portland Mercury" will last on as a classic way of informing/connecting local communities.
