    Oregon envies Washington? This Seattlite envies Oregonians. Seattle, once a sleepy little backwoods town for losers, has grown to be a traffic-jammed sinkhole of Softheads shelling out big bucks for overheated espresso drinks and drafty, sh*tty little bungalow shacks. At least Portland has some real housing stock.

    Portland gives itself over to intelligent city planning and design. Seattle has given itself over to developers. It has always been like that here. A couple months ago a stately Victorian tower house was razed on the corner of my street within a day, with no notice whatsoever. And what they have built there in its stead....well, let's not get into it.  

    And on top of the 1990s demise of Seattle (Microsoft! Starbucks! Grunge! Paul Allen's Experience My Penis Project -- only $20 admission!), now we have the state trending Gooper.
