I was in Portland Oregon last week and, as we explored the city, we noticed several people talking to themselves. Full on conversation - not just quick comments. It got to the point that we joked about it - something in the water maybe.

Incidentally, LOVE Portland! Can't wait to go back!

I'm getting a repeat of the first hour, instead of the third hour--both on KTLK and KPOJ.

WendyBluEyez --

.....we are processing out loud -- a needed Shamanistic skill -- akin to Druidic Bardic canting -- calling forth the probable realities and the Invisible Allies. Decoding the Labyrinth. Listening to the Massive Heart and Mind. Processing it for the benefit of the Whole.

j.sea - thanks for the explanation! =)

I would LOVE to move to Portland! In fact, my husband and I have discussed the possibility of that within the next two years.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
