Council votes to change 39th.

Maybe I’m bitter because I cannot get any of the City Council members to appear on our show, but am I the only one irritated at the amount of time the City Council is spending on renaming 39th while we are in the middle of a recession?

Via the Oregonian, here’s the best quote from a council member:

“Leonard was skeptical of the merits of doing anything for the 39th Avenue businesses. He noted that e-mails he received in the couple of hours after the decision were “angry and abusive.”

People have lost perspective on the issue, he said. “Nothing heals like time and love,” he said.”

Awww, group hug everybody.
