Interview with S. Brian Wilson author Blood on the Tracks

"We are not worth more. They are not less" This is the mantra of S. Brian Wilson and the theme that runs throughout his compelling psychohistorical memoir. Wilson's story begins in small-town, rural America, where he grew up as a "Commie-hating,baseball-loving Baptist." moves though life-changing experiences in Viet Nam, Nicaragua, and elsewhere, and culminates with his commitment to a localized, sustainable lifestyle.

TriMet: Who is the transit agency working for?

TriMet used to be considered a great transit system with short wait times, colorful bus stops and friendly drivers, but in recent years fares have been raised so often, and service has been cut so much, that taking the bus has become unaffordable and inconvenient. How unaffordable and inconvenient depends on who you are and where you live. As Portland is getting increasingly gentrified, more and more low income people are moving to the outskirts of town, where buses come much less often. Meanwhile TriMet is heavily investing in building MAX and streetcar lines in the center of town, which is becoming more accessible all the time.  KBOO’s Jennifer Kemp, with help from FSRN reporter Eric Klein, hit the buses to see what the riders really thought of TriMet.

As you may remember on January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government. Human beings are people; corporations are legal fictions.
