Oregonians can be strange without realizing it. They had their very own guru from India some 30 years ago who bought up some ranch a couple hundred miles out in the desert from Portland, and people from all over the state were upset that the Bhagwan was "taking over" the state. The guy had rich followers and could have provided a lot of jobs and revenue to the staggering state, but they would not have any part of it.
One of their gripes was to blame Californians for the price of homes in Oregon going up. I told a woman, staring her right in the face, that Oregonians shouldn't charge the Californians such a high price for a home, that if they sold it for the lower price that they think it should be then the problem would not exist. She just stared at me uncomprehendingly as if I had just spoken in Greek or something, and babbled some irrational non answer.
