As a rule, I don't think so. Hell, I didn't know how to say it until he did. I almost always go/stay further up on the coast. But he's running the Job Corps out there. He was thrilled to get back to Oregon.
The Trump adminstration tried to gut and privatize my brother's program, which almost certainly would have had him reassigned to rural Kentucky or something. Also would have crushed the small community there in Yachats. Fortunately Congress voted to keep it going as it is.

I got this wrong. The Trump plan was rejected 3-1 in the House but then withdrawn before the Senate could kick it in the balls as well.

This is a good one but my question would be, are they popular enough to be overrated or just have a passionate following? I think Pink Floyd and Phish are overrated but I think Phish and Tool are closely related.

I'm not sure if this is 'unpopular' or not but I think Tom Brady is the most overrated quarterback in the history of the NFL. It should be noted overrated doesn't mean bad, it means people consistently rate higher than deserved.

Amen. Montana used to be this guy--lots of praise for leading the Niners to a bunch of Super Bowls without the context of them having a top-5 D every year and Jerry Rice, never mind Montana went to KC then they just kept winning with Steve Young. But Brady has far overtaken Montana, and his overratedness is amplified if you spend more than 12 seconds with anyone from Bah-ston who has a op-in-yahn about spahts.
