RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Extremely disappointed with the whole discussion. First, there was a nice laugh about the people who answer space alien as a ethnic group. I asked what i thought was a serious question: that a census worker came to my house with a computer, stayed about an hour a visit, every month for 6 months. Then, when my question was finally asked, after all the issues about how we get counted as gays/Hungarians/etc, my question was posed to a caller! Then the "media specialist" (!) responded with a trite: "you give more info to the pizza boy."
Didn't anybody wonder about this? She didn't deny my claim (it's true). I feel like i wasted my time expecting intelligence from the discussion. It seems it was a media event- was it orchestrated by the census bureau?
I find it hard to trust gov't anymore, least of all the federal bureaucracy, mostly because of things like this. I urge everyone to do the same.
