Mural on front of building in Corvallis, Oregon.
Heard about this story from my gang at lunch yesterday. Corvallis, Oregon is home to Oregon State University (Beavers, Orange & Black), the other state school, the one that teaches engineering. Students there have more in common with the Aggies from Texas A & M than they do with the hippies from Bezerkley North, aka the University of Oregon (Ducks, Green & Yellow) in Eugene. But Corvallis is where we find this mural that protests Red China's occupation of Tibet, and Corvallis is where two thugs from the PRC (People's Republic of China) came to try and get it removed. Julie Manning, the mayor, "told the Chinese officials she couldn't order the painting destroyed and she wouldn't even if she could." Three cheers for Julie! Oops, does this mean no more cheap T-shirts? Does this mean Oregon won't be getting any donations from Nike Phil?
