This man today



Out and about snapping photos for our election issue (hitting the streets tomorrow) this morning, I encountered this man in Deering Oaks Park. I didn't have a notebook or anything with me, but here's a sketch of who he is: He lives in Portland, and those are his flags. He brought them to the park, along with the chair he's leaning on as he prays, after several of his Yes on One signs were stolen -- he's keeping vigil (since Thursday!) over the new crop that's shown here. Oh, and he's he's "not fanatical," he said, wiping tears from his eyes before lowering his head again to pray.
