The Sky Will Fall

Somebody at the Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability will soon be out of a job, having used a verboten term in a public document:

Take a walk, a ride or a drive around Portland’s Central Eastside, and you can feel the creativity and growth in this unique district.

Some poor fool got carried away in extolling the virtues of the Central Eastside; you can’t use the word “drive” in the City of Portland. Believe you me, somebody’s already been called into Sustainable Susan’s green office over this flub!
