O. P. B. out there in Portland Oregon what you have Portlanders it was my town for about five years ago my wife Claire was starring in a Portland based TV show called Graham and we both became very fond of it very fond of the coffee scene of course is legendary the folly age is downright Jurassic and I believe it pieces the world in charcuterie plates per capita when I think about music in Portland I always think about the great Elliott Smith god do I never miss that man no I've never met him speaking of strangers and I think a lot of us feel that way about Elliott anytime I'm reluctant to participate in a social gathering where I might get to interact in a meaningful way with someone I admire I think of the song fashion mag then I have home home that's the man's she's name to that's the girl that he takes around town she is compose she showed this I did this call yeah and hi and now she's so you know K. in the and K. it's no no but the law you need really miss you Elliott thank you for everything welcome back you're listening to live from here a rebroadcast shows last November at the town hall in New York City I don't know a little more troubling correspondent comedian Tom Papa in a segment we call each I'm never gonna thank you Chris on behalf of life from here I continue my journey across the country shining a light on all the good people in America this week I went to Portland Oregon if you're going to visit this wonderfully weird city hollowing week is the perfect time to go in Portland it's hard to tell what our decorations and what's just Portland I was picked up at the airport by an uber driver who is wearing a welder's mask this is not a costume he said that he refuses to conform to what other people expect him to where we should be free to do whatever you want man he said if a nurse wants to wear a suit and tie or a businessman wants to dress in a tutu with tights they should I agree up to a point but we have uniforms were reason so we know what job everyone is supposed to do if I'm about to have heart surgery I don't want the doctor walking in dressed like the guy from foot locker what if he is the guy from foot locker and this is the day he decided to change careers and just wing it no I don't know what a newer driver supposed to wear but it should probably be something with a little more vision than a welder's mask after arriving slowly but safely I checked into a cool boutique hotel that had pictures of rock stars on.
