Listen to Mayor Sam Adams Hang Up on Lars Larson

Posted by Denis C. Theriault on Sat, Dec 3, 2011 at 9:29 AM

Mayor Sam Adams, for whatever reason, decided it would be worthwhile to spend half an hour with Lars Larson yesterday. He didn't quite make it.

The first few minutes are feisty—all about Occupy Portland and the latest plan to reoccupy. But then comes talk of a decision this week to lower the flag at City Hall for a slain 13-year-old boy swamped by gang life.

Lars, sounding as handsome as he looks in person, calls the kid a "thug." The mayor says Lars should be ashamed of himself. And it all goes to hell from there, until Adams hangs up because he's too "disgusted" to keep chatting.

Listen for yourself!
