We're going to put this story right here.

Then, on Friday morning, we'll see if what the Magic 8-Ball "expected" was correct.

"Yellen and her Fed colleagues will get one more big data point on Friday with the release of the November jobs report. It is expected to show another solid gain of 200,000 jobs and no change to the 5 percent unemployment rate. Anything close to that range would signal that the Fed will raise its target by a quarter of a percent this month, the first move in that direction since June of 2006."

Perhaps @MayorPDX can explain this inconsistency on his $25,000 housing tax ...

In the @Oregonian, @MayorPDX staff says, "We hope it will discourage demolitions." http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2015/10/portland_waters_down_25000_dem.html

But,@MayorPDX's ordinance itself says, "The tax is STRICTLY for revenue purposes." http://www.portlandonline.com/auditor/index.cfm?c=50265&a=548229

So,@MayorPDX, which is it? Regulation to discourage demolitions, or a money making scheme? #ft

Road rage is a feature, not a bug: Wall Street Journal puts Portland's transportation policies in a nutshell.

"The author’s utopias are cities like Portland, Ore., which adopted a 'skinny streets' program that narrows roads and widens sidewalks. This 'road diet' sometimes leaves only one lane for two-way traffic, which sounds like a prescription for road rage." http://www.wsj.com/articles/a-sea-of-red-lights-1442875848 #lft
