The Merc's Scott Moore Takes on Taft at City Club--Now!

late notice, but this could be one of the better Portland City Club Friday Forums: RANT 3:

Join City Club for our third installment of "RANT," where three local media figures let loose and skewer local and national politics. This year Scott Moore, Jack Ohman and Victoria Taft take the stage in this not-to-be missed Friday Forum.

If there is one thing to expect from Scott Moore, it's to expect the unexpected. Moore is news editor for the Portland Mercury, where he focuses on city and state politics, with a flair for the irreverent. Ohman, whose work has been called by People magazine as “uncompromising, the most wicked and the most pointedly funny on today’s op-ed pages," has been the editorial cartoonist for The Oregonian since 1983. Taft, a radio talk show host who has worked in Portland and San Diego for the last 15 years, believes "we need to eradicate the 'we’re smarter than you' mind-set that, like a virulent virus, infects nearly every institution and government agency in the state." Her talk show can be heard on KPAM AM 860.

Get these three together and who knows what they'll come up with.

Hop to! It's on the 3rd floor of the Governor Hotel, 614 SW 11th Ave. in Portland. Limited coffee/tea table tickets are $5 and are available at the door on a first-come, first-served basis. General seating is free for members and $5 for nonmembers, and is available at the door on a first-come, first-served basis.
