    Cleaning out some clutter and magazines have to go. I have the following issues of Alpinist for sale: 0 - $10 [reprint] [mint]* 1 - $5 [well loved, including beer bottle rings . . .] 6 - $5 [edge and cover wear] 7 - $5 [edge and cover wear] 8 - $10 [minor edge wear] 10 - $10 [minor edge wear] 11- $15 [mint] 12 - $15 [mint] 14 - $15 [mint] 15 - $15 [mint] 16 - $5 [lived next to the john a bit too long] 17 - $15 [mint] 27 - $10 [minor edge wear] I'll sell them as a set (my preference) for $135, shipping included. I'll also throw in an extra #10 and a few miscellaneous outdoor rags. I don't want to split these up and ship to a bunch of different folks, so I'll keep them posted as a set until December 15th. After that, I'll consider offers for individual issues, but will tack on shipping. These are in PDX, so you can always pick 'em up if you're in the area. *By "mint", I mean "mint" for most folks, and "almost mint" for serious collectors. -DT

    Talented climber for sure, but total douche nozzle:
  6. Looking for 2 tickets to the Tuesday, April 26th Banff Film Festival in PDX. Email is the best way to get a hold of me - dustintillatgmaildotcom Thanks, -DT
  7. Moving to PDX. Looking for Housing

    My wife, little boy, and I are moving to PDX sometime this summer, and are looking for a rental house. Thought I'd tap the CC brain trust for some leads. We're looking for a 2-3 bedroom house, preferably in the Laurelhurst, Hawthorne, or Sellwood neighborhoods. We'd like to be close to downtown where I'll be working, and walkable to parks and shops for my wife and little one. We're an established professional couple, so we're looking for something nice, not a beater rental. We'd also consider the Alberta and Alameda neighborhoods, but are concerned about crime/safety. Those neighborhoods seem to be really hit or miss on that front. For context, we currently live in the Sunset Hill area of Ballard, and are looking for a similar family friendly feel. I'd appreciate any and all thoughts on PDX neighborhoods and tips on possible rentals. Cheers, -dt

    If you're too dumb to figure out how to make your profile private, then you're too dumb for the job.
  10. December 5, 2008 marks the 75th anniversary of the repeal of prohibition. Today, make sure you give thanks for those who sacrificed so much to secure our right to drink freely.
  11. Most overrated bands

    That's why you're posting on cc.com and he's a multi-millionaire.
  12. Most overrated bands

    Van Halen. Talk about tone-deaf diddling.
  13. The Republicans are doomed!!

    True dat. It's a great weekly digest of world political and economic news. I don't agree with every editorial position the Economist takes. But then again, I don't limit myself to ideologically homogenous sources. YMMV. What's there new motto - Great minds like a think. If anything, it's good for that.
  14. N.C.A's in E.P.C???

    Get executed by narcotrafficantes in Monterey.

  16. Charging for rescue

    What a minute, the gov't charges for rescuing climbers but not for rescuing banks and insurance companies? WTF?
  17. Awesome food in your local neighborhood?

    Le Gourmand is one of my favorites, very nice place to go for cocktails and appies. Sambar is a very cool spot.
  18. "Evil must be defeated!" -- John McCain 8/16/08 "Enough is enough! We're going to put an end to greed!" -- John McCain 9/17/08 John McCain's platform - As President, I promise to fundamentally alter human nature! If he can pull that off, I guess he really is a [gag]maverick[/gag].
  19. Obama is the Pie-in-the-Sky Candidate???

    Peach pie makes me feel like this:
  20. Obama is the Pie-in-the-Sky Candidate???

    Because God wasn't a POW, and John McCain was.
  21. President Palin? WTF?

    ^^^^ I hope you posted that as a funny.
  22. Awesome food in your local neighborhood?

    I'm a bit of a taco truck connoisseur, and the one at Home Depot on Aurora is outrageously good. Fresh tamales on the weekends.
  23. Wick Allison, a former board member and pubisher of the National Review, just endorsed Senator Obama for President. I'm interested in reactions from 5K, FW, PP, and the other board conservatives: A Conservative for Obama My party has slipped its moorings. It’s time for a true pragmatist to lead the country. Leading Off By Wick Allison, Editor In Chief THE MORE I LISTEN TO AND READ ABOUT “the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate,” the more I like him. Barack Obama strikes a chord with me like no political figure since Ronald Reagan. To explain why, I need to explain why I am a conservative and what it means to me. In 1964, at the age of 16, I organized the Dallas County Youth for Goldwater. My senior thesis at the University of Texas was on the conservative intellectual revival in America. Twenty years later, I was invited by William F. Buckley Jr. to join the board of National Review. I later became its publisher. Conservatism to me is less a political philosophy than a stance, a recognition of the fallibility of man and of man’s institutions. Conservatives respect the past not for its antiquity but because it represents, as G.K. Chesterton said, the democracy of the dead; it gives the benefit of the doubt to customs and laws tried and tested in the crucible of time. Conservatives are skeptical of abstract theories and utopian schemes, doubtful that government is wiser than its citizens, and always ready to test any political program against actual results. Liberalism always seemed to me to be a system of “oughts.” We ought to do this or that because it’s the right thing to do, regardless of whether it works or not. It is a doctrine based on intentions, not results, on feeling good rather than doing good. But today it is so-called conservatives who are cemented to political programs when they clearly don’t work. The Bush tax cuts—a solution for which there was no real problem and which he refused to end even when the nation went to war—led to huge deficit spending and a $3 trillion growth in the federal debt. Facing this, John McCain pumps his “conservative” credentials by proposing even bigger tax cuts. Meanwhile, a movement that once fought for limited government has presided over the greatest growth of government in our history. That is not conservatism; it is profligacy using conservatism as a mask. Today it is conservatives, not liberals, who talk with alarming bellicosity about making the world “safe for democracy.” It is John McCain who says America’s job is to “defeat evil,” a theological expansion of the nation’s mission that would make George Washington cough out his wooden teeth. This kind of conservatism, which is not conservative at all, has produced financial mismanagement, the waste of human lives, the loss of moral authority, and the wreckage of our economy that McCain now threatens to make worse. Barack Obama is not my ideal candidate for president. (In fact, I made the maximum donation to John McCain during the primaries, when there was still hope he might come to his senses.) But I now see that Obama is almost the ideal candidate for this moment in American history. I disagree with him on many issues. But those don’t matter as much as what Obama offers, which is a deeply conservative view of the world. Nobody can read Obama’s books (which, it is worth noting, he wrote himself) or listen to him speak without realizing that this is a thoughtful, pragmatic, and prudent man. It gives me comfort just to think that after eight years of George W. Bush we will have a president who has actually read the Federalist Papers. Most important, Obama will be a realist. I doubt he will taunt Russia, as McCain has, at the very moment when our national interest requires it as an ally. The crucial distinction in my mind is that, unlike John McCain, I am convinced he will not impulsively take us into another war unless American national interests are directly threatened. “Every great cause,” Eric Hoffer wrote, “begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.” As a cause, conservatism may be dead. But as a stance, as a way of making judgments in a complex and difficult world, I believe it is very much alive in the instincts and predispositions of a liberal named Barack Obama.
