Short Description: 
Abe and Joe tackle the proposed terminal in Vancouver that would route oil trains through Oregon.

It seems that American and Canadian oil companies are producing more crude than their exissting pipeline network can carry. The answer, in the short term, has been to ship the oil by rail. The Vancouver, Wash. port commission last week cleared the way for the construction of a massive terminal, where railroad oil from North Dakota would be loaded onto ships bound for West Coast refineries. Among other places the trains would run through Oregon.

Trains are fun and all, but sometimes they, y'know, blow up.

50th Anniversary of the March on Washington

Join Sharon Gary Smith, Executive Director, of McKenzie River Gathering Foundation (MRG) and Gahlena Avidan, Retired Community Activist and former member of the African American Advisory Committee to Portland Police Bureau as we discuss the marathon mind-set required in seeking justice for African Americans and others over the last 50 years and into the future. The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom took place in Washington, D.C., on August 28, 1963. Attended by some 250,000 people, it was the largest demonstration ever seen in the nation's capital, and one of the first to have extensive television coverage. 1963 was noted for racial unrest and civil rights demonstrations.
