OK, I'm honestly baffled -- and I'd love some help figuring this out from the BlueOregon audience.
By now, you've probably seen Gordon Smith's newest logo. Set aside the laughable tagline, and notice the font:

I don't get it.
Is he deliberately trying to piss off fans of the OSU Beavers? Or does he think he's got them locked up - and it's the UO Ducks that need work?

Let me remind everyone: Smith voted seven times against the very Pell Grants that allow low-income Oregonians to attend college, and voted twice to kill a tuition tax break for 53,000 Oregon students and their families.
