Fodder for Portlandia: The First Denny’s!

A burgeoning case of Portland Hoarding Syndrome. Observable symptoms:

  • Opposition to redevelopment based on fantastical claims of historical, emotional, or environmental significance.
  • Lack of utilitarian analysis. All structures are functionally statues, their use is of no consequence.
  • Lack of local awareness. It makes no difference that an area is targeted for high density redevelopment with massive investment in public transit.
  • Allergy to numbers, especially those accompanied by dollar signs.

This may seem harmless but around here you never know.
