In Oregon news:

the good: Paul Krassner, Yippie co-founder, underground publisher, Friend Of Leary, and bullshit detector, is reading in Portland this Saturday evening at the Old Church (follow the link for details and interview). I just missed his couple of New York readings, but his book tour is winding its way down the west coast right now.

the bad: Former Oregon governor Neil Goldschmidt admits to an affair with a 14-year-old girl, 30 years after the fact and under pressure from the Willamette Week.
