I actually just put in my request off for election day and the day after.

I do not want to be near where I work if it all goes to hell in a hand basket.

I think that's a very wise move. I'm putting off going back to work until after the elections. It's scary driving around out there right now. Lots of angry guys in lifted 4 wheel drives with all kinds of huge flags in the back, I'm sure they are mostly armed as well. Not sure it will be better after the 3rd but for now I have enough going on without dealing with a bunch of hyped-up male chauvinist BS. Stay safe out there. Hug

Washington State, easy to get a concealed carry permit here, unfortunately. There have been a lot of road rage killings here lately.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler reportedly swatted/hit at a restaurant. Apparently this is not the first time that the Mayor has been confronted by activists  who disagree with his actions while out in public.  Sad

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler was swatted in the shoulder Wednesday evening while out to dinner at a restaurant in the Nob Hill neighborhood, according to the mayor’s office.

Wheeler was five minutes into a dinner at Cafe Nell with a friend when a small crowd began yelling obscenities at him and soon pushed their way into the outdoor tented area where he was seated, according to Jim Middaugh, the mayor’s communications director, who was briefed by the mayor on the incident.

Middaugh said a woman started swatting at the mayor after he asked them to leave. The mayor was not injured and does not plan to press charges.

Wheeler left the restaurant, taking his food to go.

Sergeant Kevin Allen, a spokesperson for the Portland Police Bureau, originally described the interaction as a “punch.” Allen said the assault occurred around 8:30 p.m. No injuries were reported and the suspect, who has not yet been identified, left, according to the police. No arrests were made.

Videos posted on social media Wednesday evening show a group yelling and cursing at Wheeler as he sat in an outdoor dining tent.

Yes it would be nice. Outdoor dining in SoCal was ended back in November.

This is the latest that I could find for the Portland area's COVID dining policy. Basically no indoor dining but outdoor is permitted with restrictions and take out is encouraged.

The State of Oregon has new guidelines for restaurants, as part of the Governor’s health and safety framework (link is external). Multnomah County is in the “Extreme Risk” category, so the guidelines for restaurants are:

    Takeout highly recommended
    Outdoor dining allowed, max 50 capacity, 75% of sides open for airflow
    11 pm close
    Max 6 per table, limit 2 households

Our restaurants are open - with limited seating, and for the fall they used these

for outdoor dining as the weather chilled. It's too cold for even these now, IMHO.

Nevertheless, we've stuck to takeout, it will be quite a treat to actually be seated in a restaurant again.
