    Even the people in Portland who know Cincinnati remark about the striking similarities between the two cities. Except that some of them, in their weaker moments, will confide that Cincinnati has much more to work with than Portland ever did.

    This is why we take people to Portland all the time — 384 of them over the last eight years including many skeptics who return as believers.

    See for yourself. Airfares are really cheap right now. And take Amtrak to Seattle to see the Seattle Streetcar and the terrific new light rail line there. You can do it all on a three-day weekend, and you’ll have a ball.
