Opinion: 16 years after Portland’s ‘urgent’ Freeway Loop study, where has our boldness gone?

Map of Portland’s inner-city freeway loop. The 2005 Freeway Loop Advisory Group study proposed relocating the dashed segments into tunnels. (Source: the 2005 Freeway Loop Study.) The year was 2005, and the tone was urgent. “Clearly, the I-5/405 Freeway Loop needs immediate attention.” “To keep the I-5/405 Freeway Loop viable, planning and design for improvements must begin now.” “We are at a very critical juncture. It’s time to move forward.” The blue ribbon Freeway Loop Advisory Group (FLAG), ...

The Return of Festivals - Cannes 2021 Was All About Films & Friends

"Cinema is not dead," proclaimed Thierry Frémaux during the announcement of the official selection for the 2021 Cannes Film Festival a few months ago. He was right, of course, but we already knew that. Cinema will never die! It just took a little break during the 2020 pandemic year, with cinemas closed worldwide. But filmmakers were still working on films - finishing up post-production from their homes, or even filming new projects when they were finally allowed to resume production (with mask...

Here We Go! Back to the Croisette for the 2021 Cannes Film Festival

We're back again in the South of France for the glorious and grand 2021 Cannes Film Festival. The fest reluctantly cancelled last year due to the pandemic and due to an inability to figure out how to come up with some kind of alternative festival (a virtual version or a delay or anything else that wouldn't risk the safety of the attendees). Last year during the usual Cannes dates in May, I watched a series of Cannes Film Festival-esque films and wrote a tribute to the magic of the festival. Th...

On cognitive dissonance and climate change in Cascadia

Wildfire smoke in Portland on September 10th, 2020.(Photo: BikePortland) (By Ryan Packer) Did the lawmakers remember when they could barely see a few blocks due to smoke, and did any of them have to construct makeshift air filters out of box fans and air filters like I had? Near the end of the Washington legislature’s 2021 session in early April, I wondered how different the content of lawmakers’ speeches and the resulting impact of the laws they were passing would be if most of the st...
