A metaphor. And a china shop.

Portland's finest Surrealism, courtesy of the editorial page of yesterday's Oregonian:

Never changing is Leonard's hearty embrace of the role than larger-than-life character. And two constants inhabit the attendant imagery.

A bull.

And a china shop.

Shoehorn this much personality into the heart of our city's most potent civic debate, -- whether to allow dibs on sidewalk space at the Grand Floral Parade -- and there's only one possible outcome.


So, to summarize: A man becomes a head of cattle, enters a crockery emporium, uses a haberdasher's tool to enter a ventricle, and then catches fire.
