Minutes of meeting of 24 March, preceded by German poem

das ungeordnete Kafe


es gibt zwei Mädchen am nächsten Tisch

hinter Ladentisch

eto vsyo

und ich.



D. Westerlund and C. Miller joined by H. Soles, meeting called to order on time, at 6:30.

The whole time revolved around our political expectations in the Presidential campaign.  Herschel says Bernie Sanders is coming tomorrow, Friday, to Portland, but is not sure.  We consult the management of the Random Order cafe: same thing, not sure.  In the course of more than an hour of talk, no optimism was evident regarding the leadership potential of the Democratic Party, either locally or nationally.

Hillary Clinton against Donald Trump: although conventional wisdom (including that of Dave Westerlund) gives it to Clinton, it may well, and in fact in some ways it would be better, to go to Trump.

Herschel goes on about plumbing.  Dave raises the possibility of continuing police interference with the Pioneer Courthouse Square Friday Five-p.m. anti-war witness; after discussion of the details Dave again promises to contact ACLU.

A new bullhorn is to make its first appearance at the Friday five-pm anti-war witness at Pioneer Courthouse Square tomorrow.

We ran late.  The secretary is of the opinion it was nine pm when we left the cafe.
