Since his office evidently decided to gift the Oregonian its bureau assignments this morning, I'm wondering aloud whether Mayor-elect Sam Adams is athletic as our president when it comes to dodging shoes thrown by journalists he might have inadvertently pissed off. There's a press conference at 1pm at city hall. Just saying. Sam? Care to weigh in on your relative athleticism, compared to Old Bushy? And no, Amy Ruiz did not put me up to this. I was just, like I say, thinking aloud.
