If this tarnishes your golden opinion of me, well then so be it.
In any case, Obama was in town yesterday down at the waterfront. I love this city for a lot of reasons, but I especially love that when a guy like Barack Obama comes to town, all the folks come out. As you may or may not know, Portland is one of the most bike friendly cities in the country. Add the two factors together and you end up with a million bikes parked anywhere and everywhere.
I guess Portland broke some sort of record for an event like this. We had over 75,000 people down at the waterfront.
