    I've ever seen anywhere I've traveled in the world, and I was surprised to see that many of them operate on a 100% fixed route with overhead electrical delivery like a streetcar. The operators are very helpful and friendly too.

    Streetcars seem to be a perfect fit for the city. I have to say though, the red Portland cars are the most visually appealing in my opinion.

    Dear Republicans: If the US increases oil production, OPEC will simply decrease foreign production to keep prices high. We're not as stupid as you look.

      So far I've seen lime green, golden yellow, orange-red, and blue.  Helps create an impression of variety.

      You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!
