Surprise! Coliseum rehab all screwed up.

Another Sam Rand special -- time to throw the whole file away and start over. Or not start over.

"Oh, the inhumanity, and all of the taxpayers screaming around here....I told you... I can't even talk to people... around there. It's... I can't talk, ladies and gentlemen. Honest, it's just laying there, a mass of smoking wreckage, and everybody can hardly breathe and talk... I-I'm sorry. Honest, I can hardly breathe. I'm going to step inside where I cannot see it. Charlie, that's terrible. I... Listen folks, I'm going to have to stop for a minute, because I've lost my voice... Here come the lawyers...." ~ On the scene (once again) at the Bumbleburg Disaster scene.

For all of the hipsters & CoP tweeters & plannertarians who don't know history:

Hindenburg Disaster Newsreel Footage (1937)

My favorite line in the story is, "until a deal can be hatched".
That is how business is always done in Portlandia.

What part of " Oh darn, there's no money and no glimmer of any money we can see. Time to roll this back into the PDC until we can paint more lipstick on his pig.

That photo at the O is hilarious. The building is completely obscured by trees, and the only prominent thing is a portapotty in the foreground. I guess the O's photo editor took the early retirement package?

The "Hindensam" image never fails to elicit a good laugh.

Great image! It totally reflects the Sammyboy disaster and his incompetence with budgets and handling the public’s money. One wonders if there is a “whole” file to throw a way. The original document for the minor league baseball stadium the Sam-Rand twins wanted to build on the Memorial Coliseum site was written on a paper napkin.

Offer it to the North Koreans. Win-Win proposition.
