You can't spell Oregonian without Onion

Another absurd chapter in Portland City Hall history has come to a close. Remember when then-commissioner Chloe Eudaly was trying to fine the federal government for erecting a fence in a bike lane alongside the courthouse due to recurring riots? Too funny.

The fine got up to $11 million, apparently, but the city has finally given up trying to collect any of it.  The Oregonian has the story (behind the paywall, for now at least) here.
