A scary thought

The other day the Portland Monthly took a break from compiling meaningless lists designed to orient L.A. transplants, and it uttered a startling prophecy: If Portland charter reform passes, the new city manager will be none other than former Mayor Creepy Sam Adams. And, they add, he's already the de facto mayor as Dud Wheeler dedicates more and more of his days to his elaborate grooming rituals.

There are many reasons to vote no on the November charter reform measure and wait for a better proposal to come along. Charter reform can be put to the voters by the City Council any old time, and a citizens' initiative can do it, too.

But Lord help us, Sam Adams as city manager? That's seals the deal all by itself. No, no, a thousand times no.


  1. Would Beau Breedlove be the city manager’s personal assistant? Or will Sam be seeking younger, fresher talent?

    Sam Adams sounds like deja vu all over again.

    1. Time to run Scam Adams out of town on a rail. Again.
