I offer no moderation and stand by my opinion.

I lived in metro portland 16+ years and was a regular fan & customer of Powells. Entering Powells I always felt like I was entering an alternative world but what fun book buying & selling. Now Portland's a different kettle of fish. At first it was a beautiful & rich city. Times & politics changed and the city began to resemble a european neo-socialist smelly kettle of fish.

Oooh, this should be good.

Any chance native Portlanders could have a chance to judge if Brockman can accurately represent the true Portland on the Colbert Report? Am I too late? Is there a contingent of Rose City devotees that is familiar with Brockman and I'm out of the loop?

Oh my, since Mr. Colbert's publisher has already received at least $15.00 from the good people at Powell's, that means the "hippy & communistic bookstore" has realized perhaps $3.00? You can tell the brilliant author that I would gladly donate $8.00 (in Canadian funds!) rather than see one of my favorite bookstores go under in order to "pay" a talk show host for criticizing one of his best market places. Keep it up Powell's. Do not change a thing. Cheers -- Wendy

I am so looking forward to the fore-play between Brockman/Colbert.
