Heart warmer: Portland boy trying to sack hunger in Portland with PB&Js


Kadin Adam, 10, doesn’t just play football, he lives it.

As a quarterback on a Parkrose Youth Football team, there’s always been something about beating a tackle he loves.

“You get to run the ball and score a touchdown,” he said.

But this summer, there’s a new end zone Kadin has his sights set on. He’s collecting cans and bottles by the dozen and using the money to buy food for the hungry in downtown Portland.

Once he cashes in on the cans and bottles, he buys the fixings for his favorite sandwich: the PB&J. Then, with the help of his mother, he cranks out one sandwich after another.

With sandwiches in hand, he delivers the PB&Js to those living on the streets of downtown Portland.

Romney, an empty promise like a used condom dangling in a fence next to a trashcan

Politics never looked so pretty as Romney’s speech tonight to the Republican National Convention.

Firstly, the purpose of the speeches leading up to Romney was to mythologize him. These people are a bunch of Jesus-loving yahoos who love a myth more than anything. And if we don’t mythologize the deity, he’s not good enough.

Where’s the realism? No one can be a superhero like Romney.

Where’s the woman sitting on the toilet wiping her ass saying how crappy Romney is?

There’s not. Because we need positive notes.


Romney’s making promises I haven’t heard since a junior high school student class election.

His speech is more than pathetic.

His rhetoric is just as juvenile.

If I went to the RNC, I’d ask for my money back.

We need a leader who is globally oriented, not overly patriotic and closed-mindedly American specific.

He’s a bullshit artist with a penchant for a religion that is egregiously idiotic.

If we could go to bed wrapped in god’s love? Have you read the bible?

The American dream is working our asses off so we can spend less time with our families?

No. Fuck no.

The American dream is spending less time at work, spending more time with our families, and stopping the madness that is working ourselves to the grave for no reason.

The Republican dream — according to the Republican leadership — is dead wrong.

We don’t want to work ourselves to oblivion. We want to soak up our families to bliss.

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong!

I have a plan to create 12,000,000 new jobs, but I’m going to hold it back unless I become president.

What a bunch of babies.

Their plan: destroy the earth to make money NOW.

Like I said, short term is awesome! Long Term is stupid!


Can I get an “I do”? Who wants to see some pole dancing photos?

I recently photographed at the Midwest Pole Dancing Competition, and man was it hot. Here are just some of my shots that I submitted to Time Out Chicago.

Here’s your link. 

Thing is, I rushed through my delivery. Now that I’ve gone through again, I’ve found SOOO many great ones.

Never fear, it’s probably a little unsafe for work. But if anyone asks, just say there are men and women competing.
