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 Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
