Government propaganda of the worst kind

Your tax dollars are going to help government mislead children into thinking that today's world of personal automobility is going to continue . . . when it's not. Even if it were a desirable thing, it can't (and won't) continue. The only question is how damaged today's kids are going to be by adults' efforts to sustain the unsustainable.

Now here's a place trying to reduce hunger in its midst

Portland has an amazing series of city-sponsored classes aimed at helping people grow more of their own food and increasing the number of pollinators.

Meanwhile, Salem residents trying to reduce hunger here in the heart of the Willamette Valley (and improve food safety and security) are hamstrung by a city government decree that allows Salem residents to keep a 100# pot-belly pig and barking dogs but forbids a few laying hens. Crazy.
