Occupy Portland is now over a month old.  Last night a story was out that the "Real Occupiers" wanted to apologize to the city and the police for starting something that has spun totally out of their control.  This may have just been a rumor.  On Thursday the ersatz mayor of portland gave a press conference in front of city hall warning the protesters not to pull off another spontaneous parade and disrupt traffic like they did the night before.  As he was saying this to a very small collection of local media some of the Occupy Portland folks came up to listen.  As they gathered mayor sam wrapped things up and tried to get the hell out of there fast but not before a few of the protesters came up to shake his hand and thank him for his support.  I can see the college kids and the mentally ill buying his line but I would think that the street people could smell a load when it's in front of them.
