IF BASEBALL GOES AWAY, IT'S LENTS' FAULT, NOT MINE!!! The mayor offers KGW some remarkably tortured logic. “It'll be up to them,” he says, already seeking to shift responsibility for the hotly-anticipated failure of the deal to the poor neighbors. Perhaps if Adams and City Commissioner Randy Leonard hadn't come up with such a hairhare-brained scheme in the first place, they might not be looking for scapegoats now. Other similar headlines from history include: Little Red Riding Hood Indicted After Own Wolfy Death; Ray Liotta: "I Ate My Own Brain..." and of course Ponzi Sees Investors Beheaded—Justice At Last...

SKI JUMP IN THE STADIUM!!! A great post by blogger PAgent explores Portland's more imaginative civic history with sporting venues.


14-YEAR-OLD GIRL!!! Portland Police Officer Joseph Wild pleads not guilty to harassing 14 and 16 year-old girls, and a domestic violence victim he had earlier been called on to help. The judge expects "more charges" will be brought. Cop Union boss has no position on the charges but showed at the arraignment to "show Joey a friendly face." The guy must have been having a GREAT time locked up at the Justice Center over the weekend. Meanwhile the Oregonian buries the most serious charge in paragraph eight of its below the fold Metro story this morning. Police spokeswoman says every organization faces occasional "issues with employees." See what she did there? No? Me either...

IRANIAN ELECTION!!! Government clamps down on foreign media, banning international press. Iranian President flees to Russia, while the Daily Show has strong coverage from John Oliver:

SO SHE THINKS SHE CAN ACT LIKE A NORMAL PERSON!!! Katie Holmes tapes an episode of "SYTYCD."
