President’s exchange
with black journalist
sparks new outrage
By Errin Haines Whack

Many African-Americans are expressing outrage over a
testy exchange between President Donald Trump and a vet-
eran black journalist, with many considering the incident
to be the latest indication of his inability to relate to them.
Already skeptical of Trump, many blacks said they were
exasperated by the fact that, during his news conference on
Thursday, the new president asked April Ryan, longtime
White House correspondent for American Urban Radio
Networks, to help broker a meeting for him with black law-
“Will you meet with the Congressional Black Caucus?”
Ryan asked. Trump responded: “I would. You want to set up
the meeting? Are they friends of yours?”
The exchange set off a firestorm on social media as many
black people balked at Trump’s suggestion of an assumed
relationship between Ryan and CBC members because they

Warriors top Cougars in OT
By Nathan Mollat

They say one of the hardest things to do in
basketball is beat a league rival three times
in one season.
The South City girls’ basketball team can
now vouch for that adage. Facing Half Moon
Bay for the third time this year, which fin-
ished second behind the Warriors in the
Peninsula Athletic League North Division,
South City scratched and clawed its way to
52-42 overtime victory over the Cougars in
a semifinal game of the PAL Tournament at
Hillsdale Friday afternoon.
“We knew going in, beating a team three
times is really difficult because everything
we do, they know how to stop,” said South
City coach Paul Carion. “They (the Cougars)
played a bit faster than the two previous
games we played, and it caught us off guard.”
Both Carion and Half Moon Bay coach
Antonio Velasco both believed the Cougars
played better, but at the end of the day, a
third straight loss by Half Moon Bay proved
who the better team was.
“We played better (than South City), but
they’re the better team than we are,” Velasco
said. “Every time we had a chance, we didn’t
take advantage. And every time they had a
chance, they did take advantage. We could
have closed it out twice before overtime.” TERRY BERNAL/DAILY JOURNAL

‘Portlandia’: Brainstorming, basketball, improv
By Lynn Elber

LOS ANGELES — The “Portlandia” brain trust is gath-
ered to hash out another round of endearingly goofy tales
set in a mythical (sort of) Portland.
Laptops dot the conference table where stars Carrie
Brownstein and Fred Armisen sit with fellow writers of
the IFC comedy. Their modest office is in a gentrifying
industrial section of Los Angeles with the whimsical
nickname Frogtown — so perfectly “Portlandia,” now in
its seventh and next-to-last season.
The story currently under discussion: What the mayor’s
wish to secede from the United States could mean for the
Oregon city with Kyle MacLachlan back as the mayor and
Kumail Nanjiani as an unyielding bureaucrat).
“I just want more Saturday and Sunday. Two each,” one
writer suggests as the mayor’s vague intent.
“He keeps saying, ‘I just want the weekend.’ And Fred
and Carrie are like, ‘What does that mean?’” another
scribe chimes in.
“Shorts. Flip-flops. Eating a banana on the front
lawn,” is helpfully offered.
This group stream of consciousness meanders delight-
fully on. The mayor wants to set up a tax shelter to attract
billionaires. Or maybe he went to Iceland and realized
countries outside America are OK, too.
‘Portlandia’ is now in its seventh and next-to-last season. But what about the downside of secession? Portland’s
split from the U.S. would be treated like a cable customer
trying to end a contract, and it wouldn’t be pretty. There
are the penalty fees, of course, and demands for return of
federal equipment including flagpoles and court gavels.
And how would a Portlander cross the border to see, say,
a Beyonce concert? Would a passport be required?
Most TV writers’ rooms feel like creative conspiracies,
but this one even more so. Brownstein and Armisen con-
ceived the series with fellow executive producer Jonathan
Krisel, and the two of them play various and sundry char-
Ideas and notions are thrown out casually, to be either
built on or supplanted by the next creative burst of
thought. Only Brownstein’s determined effort to work
pianist-composer Dave Grusin into an episode provokes
gentle teasing, until she finally surrenders.
“I’m willing to let Grusin go. I’ll just hang out with
him in LA, ” says Brownstein, whose fame pre-
”Portlandia” was musical, including as a founding mem-
ber of the rock band Sleater-Kinney. She and former
“Saturday Night Live” cast member Armisen, himself a
musician, are longtime friends.
Also on hand this day for idea-swapping and a
lunchtime game of basketball — an outside hoop is the
big perk — are writers Alice Mathias, Graham Wagner and
Karen Kilgariff. But the script that emerges is only the
beginning of what viewers ultimately see, a “loose blue-
print” for filming in Portland, as Krisel puts it.
“The shooting becomes our rewriting ... because it’s so
heavily improvised,” he said in an interview. “And that’s
kind of the secret of the show, that once you’ve got this
simple premise and you’ve brainstormed it and written it,
A FAMILY SHARING HOPE IN CHRIST then on the day (of taping) you can just have fun with it.”
HOPE EVANGELICAL He compares the show to an art project, such as a paint-
ing or sculpture, which ultimately finds its own final

HopeLutheranSanMateo.org ownership over and everybody’s proud of because every-
body contributed to it.  I think there’s a communist,
socialist vibe to ‘Portlandia’ to make it work,” Krisel
said, with a laugh.
The comedy does revel in its own brand of leftiness.
Brownstein once compared Portland itself to “more a
mind-set than a place,” telling the Associated Press in a
2014 interview that it’s “an exemplary city in how befud-
dled it can sometimes be by its own attempts at progres-
siveness and kindness.”
For Krisel, the flaws-and-all depiction in “Portlandia,”
although affectionate, led to a brief crisis of confidence
after the presidential election.
“We were making fun of ourselves and we thought it was
funny, and the world was, ‘Actually, we hate those peo-
ple,’” he recalled thinking. He felt an urge to protect
“Portlandia” by halting it, but decided instead to stick
with what he calls “just a funny show.”
“It’s like candy to watch. People have said they’re
going through something difficult and they put on
‘Portlandia’ and it’s a breath of fresh air, ” he said.
“Sometimes the world is so scary, as it is now, and you
just need something to make you laugh.”
