Portland Communique RIP
This blog couldn't be any more different from the Portland Communique, the once and hopefully future king of all Stumptown blogs. Author Christopher "One True b!X" Frankonis officially pulled the plug over the weekend.
He was a pioneer in community journalism, a trailblazer in the field of professional blogging or whatever you want to call it. Even I, the author of a goofball blog that rarely delves into local politics, knew what b!X was doing was special and important. He set the bar for those who may follow.
And if he's out there reading this, for what it's worth, I've been rejected from Powell's roughly a dozen times over the years. Some sort of secret password or special handshake must be required to get hired at any location, even the one in Beaverton.
