Portland Tops Seattle, Author Wears Hair Shirt And Goes Into Wilderness

OK, Portland beat Seattle in one of these “best places” polls.  It’s the Fortune Magazine “Best Places to Live and Launch” list for 2008, and Portland came in at #6.  Seattle?  Didn’t even make the top 100.

How is this so, you may ask?  I’m thinking some sort of big Keno game tacked to the wall at the Fortune headquarters.  Or perhaps astrology.  Maybe old-fashioned ballot-stuffing.

Bellevue, which is sort of like an appendage to Seattle (a good one, not one of the icky kind), ranked #1.  I can’t get much joy out of that, even though my brother-in-law lives there.
