Where's the love for Little Beruit, Willy?
During his book tour, former president William Jefferson Clinton will not be visiting Portland. He will, however, be making a stop at the Costco in Issaquah, Washington on June 30th.
Who knows what old political favor he's paying off by stopping there. Why not Spokane or Yakima, or, shucks, even Vancouver? Until a Google search a few minutes ago, I didn't even know where Issaquah was located. Apparently, it's a Seattle suburb. In short, the former president is snubbing Portland to hang out in the Washington equivalent of Tigard.
After a 2 PM signing at the Costco, the Clinton will cruise over to south Seattle for another one at 8 PM. With their fancy-schamncy new library and self-cleaning public toilets, it's no surprise that he would snub PDX for the Emerald City. But, come on, Issaquah?!!
Since Clinton is no doubt cruising around the country in his own personal space-aged bachelor pad jet, he could easily hit Powell's around noon, fly up the 1-5 corridor and make it with time to spare.
Bah, who cares. I didn't want to read his fuddy ol' memoirs anyway. *sniff*
