The price is right

Portland now has free wireless internet.  At least in downtown, you can now download all the porn and pirated music you can handle, without giving half your savings to Comcast.  The best part is that 95% of the city will be covered “within the next year.”  (translation: everywhere west of 82nd Ave.)  As long as my neighbor doesn’t put up a firewall before then, I should be golden for the forseeable future.

    What a great public service! Now the poor and homeless finally have a use for those Sony Vaios they’ve been carrying around.
