Planning a move to Oregon? Well, you are definitely not alone. In fact, Oregon is the 9th fastest growing state, according to the US Census Bureau. The expected population increase is estimated to be around 1.4 percent. Not bad for Oregon, and the growth of the state is certainly good for businesses in major cities.

New information coming to light could strongly affect the way people remember a sex abuse trial against a former African-American police officer in Salem, Oregon.

Giving cats elaborate vanity tattoos is all the rage right now in Russia. Pet owners sedate their hairless felines and subject them to the pain of the needle for hours in order to decorate them with ever more fantastical designs. This is selfish and outrageous
Alabama became the eleventh state to pass anti-abortion legislation. Now eleven of the 22 states with both a Republican governor and legislature have passed an anti-abortion law. I expect it to be eventually 22 of 22. The Republicans know or should know that these laws are unconstitutional under the Supreme Court’s earlier decision in Roe v. Wade.
