You have been warned

There’s a huge Jehovah’s WItness convention in town at Memorial Coliseum. This according to the group of very friendly out-of-towners trying to get to the Coliseum from their hotel via my bus this morning.

They had TriMet Trip Planner directions printed out – but kept getting confused about just where they were going – the Convention Center! No, the Coliseum! And their Trip Planner directions weren’t exactly helpful – I had to stop them from waiting ten minutes at the Rose Quarter Transit Center to board another bus that would have taken them all of one block north.

They were very grateful for my help, of course. Handed me a large four-color pamphlet. And invited me to drop on by – “we’ll be here for the next three days!”

Instead, I’m warning you all instead. See, that four-color pamphlet came from what looked like a huge stack. They’re prepping to invade all of PDX with their good word, it seems.

Either that or there’s going to be an interesting mashup of sorts at this afternoon’s Blues Festival…!

    What a weird weekend: Blues festival, Libertarian convention, and now Jehovah’s Witnesses. What happened to having convetions in the off-season?

    I’d pay to see a blue-soundtrack’d rumble between Libs and JHs.
