Spray on tan legislation

Sigh. When any news story from Southern Indiana makes it to the west coast, its always for all the wrong reasons. Either a tornado wiped out a town, someone did something really stupid and got caught, or parents are freaking out about something vaguely sexual.
This story almost falls into two of those categories. Spray-on-Tan-Dude probably should've used better judgement and had a female staff member perform the spraying down of the naked teenage girl, but I like to give him the benefit of doubt, he was just doing his job, spraying fake tans on anyone who pays the money and assumes the position.
A side note for all you non-hoosiers, State Rep. Borders is an Elvis impersonator, and a pretty damn good one. When reading the article, his quotes are in an Elvis voice.

Highway 22

I found this old sign in an unlikely place, on the wall by the bathrooms at McFadden's in Old town. Not a place I'd usually be, in fact on a Saturday night I'd probably stand in the rain to avoid going in.
After watching the Derby in the bar at Dan & Louie's, (one of my personal 'happy places') we got caught in a crazy thunderstorm, so like any normal Portlanders, we took shelter in the nearest open bar.
In the afternoon, McFadden's is a quiet pub with anything you want on the TV, $2 happy hour food from 4-6, and a decent beer selection. Sure, its a little sterile and unauthentic, but there's lots of worse places, and in a downpour it was a godsend, and I got to see this old-school Oregon route marker.
