Tram Awards Promotional Stunt Goes Too Far

The Tram Awards are in one week: Tuesday the 25th from 6pm to 8.
Come meet Carl at “It’s A Beautiful Pizza” – the man the city initially charged $36,000 to move across the street, from 3341 SE Belmont to 3342 SE Belmont. This became the signature stunt for crazy city government in Portland, Oregon.
I wanted to kick the promo off with something dramatic although I think the New York office of the Portland Freelancer definitely got carried away. (By the way, I saw a visitor on this blog from New York tonight, so I should add that this is a joke. I have no office in New York.)
Back to the Tram Awards: I hope to see the Blogger nation there. I want to meet people like Garage Wine for example. The music will be provided by the Lighter Notes, and I’m trying to talk Emilie Boyle into kicking in 5 grand for party favors. Hope to see you there, and to the New York office: Tone it down. We already know the tram is a stupid idea.

Today's Dowd on Rummy: "time to change the change agent."
She seems to be back on her game.

Thomas Friedman is also strong in his column for tomorrow: "It may be that learning to live with a nuclear Iran is the wisest thing under any circumstances. But it would be nice to have a choice. It would be nice to have the option of a diplomatic deal to end Iran's nuclear program — but that will come only with a credible threat of force. Yet we will not have the support at home or abroad for that threat as long as Don Rumsfeld leads the Pentagon. No one in their right mind would follow this man into another confrontation — and that is a real strategic liability."

My insignificant blogging arse will be there, at the very least for some tunes and a slice.
