    Nice to see virtue signaling has price tag.

    If this is the same Tyler Rogoway as I think it is, he's part of the sued-into-oblivion Gawker mess--pushes a hotdog cart by day and prattles endlessly about defense and other policy areas he knows less than an average Bowl Blaster about by night.

    A little over melodramatic. Many people just scan the first paragraph or two of articles and this totally gives the wrong impression.

    Yep, like all the hoops at airports.. yet they fail miserably when actually scrutinized, often having hired people that are beyond the security lines that are on watch lists etc. etc.

    There's a Safeway store directly above McMenamins and there are a couple of trails that drop down into the chip & putt golf course behind the Power Station. When my daughter was 15 she wanted to go to a sold out pop band concert, so I took her and her best friend to listen to the music for free while sitting on the lawn right above the concert field.

    I grew up not to far from Wood Village (Glendoveer Golf Course) and use to ride my dirt bike along side the I-84 railroad tracks to Blue Lake Park on the weekends to try and score free beer and hot chicks at large company picnics being held there.
    My friends and I broke a lot of windows at the old Troutdale poor farm where McMenamins is now at.

    'You're not cop, you're little people' Some cops feel that signs and Gun Free Zones don't apply to them.

    It was more fun to ride down between the tracks. Terrible bumpy until you got over 25 mph.
    The freight trains really haul azz down that stretch, so you needed to look over your shoulder a lot.

    What happened when I was a teenager stays in those teenager years. Suffice to say I did things worse than breaking a few windows, and that if I had been caught I would probably have a juvie record.

    Pfft. The classic fiberglass-and-nylon CIA Letter Opener would slide right through that as easily as it would a pair of ribs...

    A few years back, I heard a story that a man called the Canadian side of a Washington/B.C. border crossing and stated that he was headed there with his gun. The story goes on to say that all of the Canadian border personnel abandoned the crossing until it was deemed to be safe to return.
    It's a funny, yet ironic story, if it is true...
