Barry Johnson to leave The Oregonian
This is not a good sign of the times: Barry Johnson, aka Mr. Portland Arts Watch is taking a buyout from The Oregonian. I didn't always agree with Johnson's ideas, but he added a lot to conversation about the Portland Arts scene. His last day at the O is December 18th. I hope to read more of Johnson's ideas on the web somewhere. As soon as I find out where he will be posting, I'll let you know. He might pop up at Art Scatter, which also has a posting on this announcement This is another dark day for culture in Portland.
