Norma Jeane Doughtery at 17

The original caption says that this is her as a "newly wed in Catalina in 1943". Is that true? Was she married for the first time at 17 years old?

People think that if you look fairly reasonable, you can’t possibly act, and as I only care about acting, I think beauty can be a great handicap. - Vivien Leigh

In Portland, the city with quirks, pdx.fm fits in perfectly

By Peter Ames Carlin, The Oregonian

Viewed from the sidewalk, Portland can look like a circus sideshow. Check out the tattooed vegans, walking in stride with the dads and kids, the comic book geeks, the iPhone addicts and the fanatic knitters.

Turn the corner and here come spandex-wrapped bicyclists, sci-fi nerds and folks who have made a religion of finding the city's best sausage waffles.

What are they thinking? The casual observer never knows.

Until you fire up your computer and dial up pdx.fm, two channels of streaming, podcast-able radio shows. They're all-Portland, all the time, and all completely, sometimes unbelievably, unfiltered.
