Portland's slabtown Neighborhood: A History

Portland's Slabtown has a colorful history. The area, which encompasses most of what is now called the Northwest Neighborhood, has seen Native Americans, Chinese vegetable farmers, lumber and steel mills, major league baseball players, a World's Fair, economic decline and gentrification, and more. It has been transformed from streams and large lakes within a thick forest, to one of the most urban locations in Oregon. Local historians Norm Gholston and Tracy Prince talk about this history, which they researched along with Mike Ryerson, for their new book "Portland's Slabtown". They even explain how it got its name.

Per Fagereng interviews Gareth Porter,
historian, investigative journalist and policy analyst.  His latest book
is "Perils of Dominance: Imbalance of Power and the Road to War
in Vietnam."

He wrote the recent piece "Bush Pledges on Iraq Bases Pact
Were a Ruse,"
which states: "When Democratic Sen. James
Webb asked the State Department's David Satterfield, 'What is a permanent
base?' Satterfield tried to avoid answering the question. But Assistant Defense
Secretary Mary Beth Long was more responsive. She said, 'I have looked into
this. As far as the department is concerned, we don't have a worldwide or even
a department-wide definition of permanent bases.'    "Webb
then observed, 'It doesn't really mean anything,' to which Long replied, 'Yes,
senator, you're right. It doesn't.' She added that 'most lawyers... would say
that the word "permanent" probably refers more to the state of mind
contemplated by the use of the term.'"
