"Suffragist City" a small survey of Oregon citizens on voting

It would have been nice to sit around a coffee shop or a bar and talk with folks about politics and religion but alas everyone seemed to be somewhere else. It was a beautiful autumn day so they were probably on a nice hike in the Columbia Gorge.  I walked around until I found a few people at bus stops and on the street and outside of grocery stores and working in their yards or painting  houses. I asked them about the upcoming election. The first question I asked is “Are you going to vote?” Sadly, most people are not really very interested or informed. Some are too disenchanted ever since the Supreme Court gave the Presidency to Bush. Several people just couldn’t think of a reason to be interested at all, especially younger voters. But I did meet a handful of people who still think their vote matters.

How about you? Join me on facebook and let’s talk civics.

"The Brautigan Library In Four Parts" podcast credits and links

The fictional library at the heart of Richard Brautigan’s novel “The Abortion: An Historical Romance 1966” isn’t filled with works by William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens or Jane Austen. Rather, it’s a repository for unpublished manuscripts of any sort by anyone.

Now Vancouver is getting its own version of the library Brautigan envisioned, through a collaboration between the Clark County Historical Museum and Washington State University Vancouver. The museum is becoming home to the Brautigan Library Collection, until recently housed in Vermont.
