Like a door that keeps revolving

Mainstream media may be fading, but government p.r. jobs continue to flourish in Portlandia. Here's the latest episode.

So all those reports he and others give while covering city/county government must be tryouts for their new employers.

Just another reason not to watch local news, hell most of the time they screw up the weather too.

PJ - Hate to see media shrinking but it's too simple to insinuate a reporter must have been doing Pravda-style journalism if they someday go to work for someone they cover. People like to hire people they know, and I suspect this was no different.

When all hell is breaking loose, we'll be glad there's a smooth pitchman at OEM telling us all to remain calm - the city is doing it's all to get the bioswales, green roofs, and bike lanes up and running again.

Randy gets a reward for playing Nerf-ball with guberment people all those years.

Now, he needs to make busy crafting all those ready-to-read/print spin stories for faxing to all the media outlets.

But wait, did we miss Mark Ross having changed sides recently?

He doesn't need a job at POEM. This is a well run city with great leadership. There will never be a problem. Sam and Randy get up each morning and then the sun shines. Life is glorious. Dear Leader.

There has to be a POEM in this somewhere.
I think I will refill the drink glass and see if I can be creative.

Good - One more reason to believe govt as much as the guy selling you deodorant.

No money for schools, but MAX and this crap - no problem.

... and I´ve seen it before
... and I´l see it again
... yes I´ve seen it before
... just little bits of history repeating
