made in oregon
04/02/09: There is currently a lot of controversy surrounding this sign. The University of Oregon, which owns the building on which the sign sits, wants to change the sign to read "University of Oregon". The [outraged] city of Portland council wants to buy it and change the words to "Portland, Oregon". Some are balking at the price ($500K) and others are balking at the city's chutzpah. They may claim the sign as "eminent domain". Legal action is sure to follow. Stay tuned.
