On my enemies list: Tom Potter, mayor of Portland, OR

The accusation: 1st degree murder of the first person reflexive.

The accused: Mayor Tom Potter, Portland, OR.

The evidence:

In the spirit of honoring the many years of hard work that have gone into this conversation by so many in our community, I am asking Dr. Pamplin to meet with Mayor Katz and myself next week to explore how we can overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of his gift to the people of Portland.
Argh! How many times do I have to say it?? "Myself" is not a fancy or more educated version of "I" or "me." Goddamit. Yeah, I know: if you say "me," people will think you are sloppy and uneducated. To this I ask: why do you care so much about impressing the stupid?
