In this week's issue of the Portland Phoenix, our editorial staff and freelancers (and one ad rep who joined in) explore a bit of why we live here. We invite you to participate as well - tell us why you live here. It needn't by any stretch be all positive (read ours for evidence of that) but it should acknowledge that you are, in fact, here, and not somewhere else.
Post them to the comments on this blog, or to the story itself, or e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we get enough interest, we'll run some of them as follow-ups in the paper and online. We look forward to hearing from you!
