Little Napoleon may be on his way out of Portland City Council, but that hasn't stopped his idiocy:
City of Portland turned a block of Southwest 4th Avenue into "Positively 4th St."
The honor to Bob Dylan, following the songwriter's unexpected Nobel Prize win and named for his 1965 single, was bestowed with purple sign-caps at City Hall's eastern intersections, on 4th Ave. at Southwest Jefferson and Madison.
Commissioner Steve Novick was behind the effort. He watched the caps go up with a small crowd as Dylan played from his smartphone.
Supposedly, this is some sort of honor. What a dork. So Shorty spent a few hundred city dollars to "honor" one of his favorite dudes. Portland desperately needs some grown-ups in office, but residents never seem to get to vote for one.
"For a lot of us, the music of Bob Dylan is a major part of the soundtrack of our lives," he told reporters at the installation. "And also, I will say the presidential election seemed to a lot of us like a repudiation of our entire lives, so celebrating something that's an affirmation of our lives... is particularly important now."
Shorty, here's the deal: we aren't all necessarily Dylan fans, and his "music" isn't part of the "soundtrack of our lives". And yes, this last election was a repudiation of your entire life, because you're basically a self-centered jerk. That's why you got voted out of orifice. It had nothing to do with Barry and Pantsuit; you managed to piss people off all by yourself. Your replacement may be no better, but at least we're rid of you.
