Portland Pops Off


I don’t know explosions, but the damage seems too great to be from one of the propane tanks the food carts typically use for cooking. Seems remarkable no injuries have been reported; the “pod” of carts crowded together here on 5th Ave between Stark (renamed Harvey Milk) and Oak downtown seems to have at least one cart open 24 hours, catering to late night partiers.

Foul play is always to be expected downtown, especially in the north end, just across Burnside Ave from Old Town, which teems with mentally ill homeless people. Of course over the years this little block has produced enough flatulence to contribute to global warming, so I guess I’m not surprised.
