Yes, win or loose.

If we get move from chomping at the bit to champing and bypass the chumps....

Well, if he happens to be stealing everyone else's power at City Hall,I suppose he could be said to "taking the reigns." And, did he take over during our recent rainy stretch? "Tigard city manager takes reigns and reins during rains..."

Speaking of which: hizzonner mayor Sammo sent this out earlier today via (appropriately) Twitbird:

What neighborhoods? RT @RenovatioLucis @VirtualMom4 Some hoods STILL get weekly trash, Y? portlandcomposts.com @portlandbps

I assume this means that some 'hoods still get weekly trash removal. Maybe if you live near Randy....

Does this mean that there is a job waiting for me at The Trib?


That's really tack-y.
