Sign O' The Times...

During my time of unemployment prior to spending a year abroad (Alaska), I would regularly check the Willamette Week for the free movie previews, and scoop up a pass for the ones that sounded good. I remember going to the WWeek office when the passes became available, between 8:45 and 9:00am, and seeing one or two other people there. This morning, I went to get passes for "Mean Girls" and "Envy". I arrived at 8:43. The line went the length of the block! There are a lot more people now who have nothing better to do than go downtown early in the morning for free movie tickets. Darn those Republicans!

Downtown

Going downtown makes me sad. I see all these people riding to work on bicycles, and I think, "These people have JOBS, and they can't even afford a CAR!" Aren't there government programs to help them out? Don't even mention people who walk to work....
