STOP THE PRESSES: Just days before news broke of Mayor Sam Adams' sexual relationship with 18-year-old Beau Breedlove, Radish Underground (414 SW 10th Ave., 928-6435), a downtown Portland boutique, had plans to celebrate two political firsts. Now those plans—to sell T-shirts with the slogan "Gay Mayor. Black President"—are on hold until at least the end of the month, say owners Celeste Sipes and Gina Johnson. Both Sipes and Johnson support the mayor. But the uncertainty around Adams' tenure made them nervous last month about going ahead with their order, which was originally supposed to hit the store Feb. 2. The reverse image on the $17 T-shirt? Two fists bumping, with one the color of the rainbow.

• IT'S ALIVE: "Live-action supervillain TV show" may not be the first thing you associate with Cartoon Network, but that may change. The network has announced the development of Molalla writer Joshua Williamson's comic Necessary Evil as a weekly live-action show. The comic (which debuted in 2007 from Georgia's Desperado Publishing) stars the children of the world's worst supervillainess as they attend the Necessary Evil Academy—a school for villains.

BUSTERS, CORRECTED: Some deals are too good to be true. In fact, one of WW's great Recession Busters deals was—sort of. It turns out that the AMAZING deal of $1 local microbrew drafts from 7 am to close every day at Sellwood's Black Cat Tavern was incorrect. That deal is actually available every day at Northeast Alberta's Black Cat Cafe (1203 NE Alberta St., 287-5908). "I mean, we have cheap beers, but not that cheap!" says Black Cat Tavern manager Deby Ververs in Sellwood. Not wanting to disappoint their patrons, the kindly Black Cat Tavern actually honored the $1 microbrew deal for one week only through today, Wednesday, Feb. 4. A big thank you to both Black Cats for being so understanding.

MORE FREE STUFF! Remember, many of WW's Recession Busters deals are good through Saturday, Feb. 14. So check out the story on and claim your God-given right to free and cheap goods from local businesses.
