Everybody Have Fun Tonight

Over on Jack Bog's site there is a lively and fun discussion of names you would give to the Portland City Council if they were a rock group. The proposed names are fun. It seems that we could have a similar good time if we poked fun at (a) the PERS Board (b) the PERS and Employers Attorneys (c) the various Media and (d) the various Judges involved, including the Supreme Court. What IF each of these were rock groups. What would you call them. To start, I'd be inclined to propose a name for the PERB, including Paul Cleary, and call them "Paul Cleary and the Raiders", or "Mike Pittman and the Mechanics". For the PERB lawyers - Joe Malkin and Bill Gary - "Stoned Temple Pilots". Use your imagination. Go to my interactive website and leave your suggestions over there. The winners will be honored by having their names used in place of the real names in some of my posts. This is good, clean fun and is a nice way to divert attention from the real problems we all are dealing with. Let your creative juices run wild. PERS can't take those away.
