Of all the the people that comment to I,Anonymous, a really terrific idea would be to have the Portland Mercury throw a party at no cost to them, for the commenters.
Everyone brings a covered dish, labeling what it is. Spanish,Indian,Asian,French,German,African,ETC.
Wouldn't that be fun getting to meet each other?
Hmmmmm... maybe this isn't such a terrible idea... I get them all in one place, and then pay to have someone wall it up—like they did in Escape from New York. (By the way, do you have a brilliant idea, rant, or confession to share with the world? Send it to the I, Anonymous Blog—where there is no escape.)
