Portland on the Tonight Show
This is the only time I can recall regretting having missed an installment of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno (sorry Mr. McDonald, it's not my cup of late night tea but his monologues aren't half bad). Many have forgotten that David Letterman got jacked out of that gig, maybe even Letterman himself, but not me. Hrumph!
Short story shorter: Tom Green came to Portland a while back in search of Oregon's "most interesting person." I guess it's part of a series of segments where he travels to each state doing the same. Among those he interviewed: "the naked janitor" at Voodoo Doughnut and the woman who owns the self-cleaning house out in Newberg.
I'm not going to hold my breath in hopes of anyone posting the segment on You Tube but The Oregonian's A&E Now blog has a brief rundown. Someone also captured this brief video clip of Green interviewing one of the Rose City Rollers.
