THE SIMPSONS are basically from Portland

In the cartoonist circles I’m in, it seemed like it was always a given that “The Simpsons” came from Portland or thereabouts. Matt Groening and Linda Barry have Portland connections, as do so many other cartoonists, and that was always good enough for me. And now it’s official, the Springfield location in the animated series is Portland–well, close enough. Here are the details via UPI. I think it’s just a matter of time before Homer Simpson makes an appearance on “Portlandia” given that there’s a similar subversive vibe going on between the two.
