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 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
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
