      For a long time the Oregon Motto was
      "visit quickly, then leave"

      Sometimes I wish it was still that.
      Chuck D


      When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.
