Ask an Uptight Portlander

P-Town has it all over Seattle when it comes to uptightness, or so says the Mexican.

Today's Oregonian has more about the Newport, OR man who was suspended for showing "Ask a Mexican" to a co-worker (who then apparently showed it to another co-worker, who was offended). The dispatch includes comments from the controversial column's author, Gustavo Arellano, who says he has never attempted to land the Mexican in the Portland market because he's "always seen Portland as being way too earnest...kind of uptight politically correct." Looks like the Uptight Seattleite could be in the market for a syndication deal of his own, if he's willing to expand his coverage area by a couple hundred miles.
