First of all, we're proud to induct Congressman Earl Blumenauer into the Hall of Mighty Oregon Political Poets. Congratulations and welcome, Congressman--coffee and sandwiches on the side table.
This morning's Oregon news limericks, as written by me, read by quizmaster TJ of Loaded Orygun, and answered (usually) by Carl, Christine,and Paul on the KPOJ 620AM Morning Show, are posted at LO.
This morning, talk about the World Series ran long, so they used fewer limericks on the air--feels like high school all over again, doesn't it, with sports sucking the resources away from the arts? Well, less for them, more for us. Fill in the blank with the word or phrase from this week's Oregon news:
Bar owners are nobody's fools.
"Not a chance!" they averred, "Rules are rules!"
"That's our cut of the lottery--
Not for band class, or pottery."
So it's tough luck for Oregon ___________ .
His techniques are hardly endearing,
Which is why his opponents are cheering.
The initiative czar
Has been hauled to the bar--
The charge? Once again, ______________ .
(The answer can be found in the Comments below, or in this week's Spanning the State at Loaded Orygun.)
