I think the Willamette Week is my favorite newspaper ever. When i get lonesome for Portland, I always ask someone to send me a WW.
A little pronunciation note: the accent is on the middle syllable, the "a" as in "cat." It's not WillaMETTE! If you say that, people know you're not from around here. Just like the know if you pronounce it OreGONE. It's more like, "Would you like a rifle, "or a gun?"
Anyway, this little free newspaper is a little food for the soul every week. The personals are always some of my favorite readings because you never know what you might read. The main articles are good too, and often not the kind of thing you'll find in a major newspaper.
Minneapolis has the City Pages, which I think is like the WW, but not as edgy. And, it's got The Rake, but I'm just not in love with these rags like I am with WW.Posted by chri1010 at July 10, 2004 7:35 PM
