Sources Say Adams Not Running For Mayor →
oh hallelujah! maybe now portland will get a mayor who cares more about people and social services than bikes and bike paths. and who will maybe spend some money on improving portland’s abysmal public schools and the horrific drop out rate, instead of spending money on trying to make portland the amsterdam of the united states. and maybe we’ll get a mayor who will spend some money...

mara just went on a field trip to smith college with the teen mothers in the GED program that she interns at. after her describing all the opportunities the girls at smith have (they pay you to do internships!) i actually want to throw myself off umass’s 26 story library. sometimes public school just doesn’t compare. but in the end, i can’t complain too much. after going to...
