Comment on About the Blogger Formerly Known as Himself by A.P. Gwiazdowska

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 19:57:42 +0000 A.P. Gwiazdowska has an official MORE HOCKEY LESS WAR bumper sticker. Request: check out How Women's Hockey Saved the World* (and defeated Donald Trump, but not necessarily in that order)[or how a teen hockey player stopped Trump from becoming president]. Finally, could you change the name of your blog to MORE HOCKEY LESS TRUMP ? a.p.g. Durham, N.C. Former U.S.A., now annexed by Russia P.S. a.p.g. is a resistance fighter against the Russian controlled government. Shhhh. Oh, crud. There's a knock at the door . . .

I would like to live in the past, say around 2008 when the bond measure passed and the former zoo director and Metro Councilor Collette assured us that there would be an offsite preserve, yes it was even called a sanctuary for the elephants. Unfortunately, I have to live in the present when we now know there is no plan to create a preserve, never was, it was always, if and when the money magically appears to develop it, a breeding facility. The new Elephant Lands is deploringly inadequate for 1 elehant much less 7. The zoo admits elephants need 2 miles to roam everyday, and yet they can only provide around 3 aces of pacing space for these massive animals, whose primary need is for vast spaces. It is a sad statement that we voted for something that we thought would provide a place for the elephants to really roam and retire, instead we get glorified sand lots with the usual out of reach trees and grass. Sad day for the elephants. Sad day for Portland.

He lived like a Spartan but partied like a Bacchanalian. He often did not have a car and would rent a room in one of those houses on Linn St or in Black's Gaslight Village. In the room he would have a mattress on the floor, a black and white TV, and a dorm refrigerator. I could bring my friends from Mark Peters to CL over to his place and he was equally accommodating. He had what Peters called "a wealth of knowledge" and could lecture at length about topics as varied as the Kennedy assassination, music, his time in prison, and old movies and TV shows. ( One time we watched the film "Hell's Angels," produced by Howard Hughes, and Sonny explained that it was the first movie to show aerial combat in a realistic way. There were shots of zeppelins advancing on cities and bi-planes attacking each other, all filmed using real zeppelins and bi-planes. It was particularly stunning since it was made in 1930.) In his room you might hear Jimmy Cliff, Alfa Blondy, Thelonious Monk, Roy Haynes, Eric Clapton, Son Seals, Buddy Guy, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles, Bo Ramsey and the Sliders, Greg Brown, Max Roach, John Coltrane, Toots and the Maytals, Totem Soul, Bob Marley and the Wailers, or King Sunny Ade as he sat on the floor like a Buddha talking about different generations of people he knew in Iowa City or his childhood in the South. Above all he was a drummer who could swing any kind of band, from blues to reggae to rock to jazz. That's how I remember him--either sitting on the floor of his room alone or driving the rhythm and beat for a room full of people.
