I just saw a man in a salmon suit record the mayor with a Flip camera.

Also, on the heels of testimony supporting the Ban the Bag campaign in city council this morning, people dressed head to toe in plastic bags danced to the wild beat of a drum circle on city hall's steps.

Ah, yes, Portland.

In addition to the drum circle campaign strategy, the Ban the Bag coalition has also put up a billboard right along I-5. Both today's rally and the billboard kick off a year-long campaign to get the legislature to ban single-use plastic bags at retailers statewide. That kind of victory is going to take a lot of drum circles.
