Yep, apparently we've been all wrong about Portland.

All these years we've been led to believe that its thriving bookstores, dynamic, rejuvenated historic district, enlightened growth and transportation policies, and general air of insouciance, were the marks of morally superior beings with a more elevated consciousness. Or so it always seemed from reading the New York Times.

The Oregonian reports that due to a lack of volunteers among the citizenry, a pilot program to maintain city parks without chemical pesticides is faltering. Seems Portlanders are too busy fixing up their adorable Craftsman homes and cleaning their high-end derailleurs to get out and do the environmental, community-minded work of weeding and raking.
