Fat Tuesday in downtown Portland
For reasons unknown Pioneer Courthouse Square is currently lined with barricades and police tape. There's cops posted at various points around the perimeter. My best guess is that they're over-preparing for the slim possibility that hundreds of Fat Tuesday celebrants may decide to descend on the square to....maybe throw beads at one another? On the other hand, maybe they're worried that local McCain supporters might go a little wild tonight after their candidate's big wins around the country.
