Review of Portland, Oregon

portland is terrible
Star Rating - 8/8/2006
the people are clannish, the weather atrocious, and the government is imported from the east coast. they are trying to make portland like new york, and the yuppies have made it overpriced, but its still a backwater town. the local color has been plowed under in the name of rampaging development. dont believe the numbers that say that portland has grown only .98 percent since 2000.. its been flooded with people moving there, and there are no jobs unless you like service industry, manufacturing, or a grinding, soulless corporate or government job.
