RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I lived in Washington DC for eight years and worked a few blocks from the Capitol on September 11, and then endured the D.C. area sniper and having my office closed due to letters with potential anthrax. Living there, we were prepared with a “go-box” in our home and car. We were also issued gas masks at work. I don’t think we fully appreciated the low grade, constant stress that this caused until we moved to Portland and it melted away.
When I read about this incident in the press, I was alarmed at first but then immediately thankful for the FBI and their efforts to watch over Portland. They were on top of the situation from the beginning and did their job well. Thanks for keeping us safe out here in the Northwest!
