MARSHALS CALL A FOUL ON T-SHIRTS WITH SIMPSON, TRAIL BLAZER LOGO

U.S. marshals are having a cow over illegal sales of Bart Simpson T-shirts.

Somebody has created shirts on which the animated TV brat shares space with the Portland Trail Blazers' logo. That's a federal offense.The Blazers and the NBA control their logos. Approved NBA clothing must include the league's insignia, and the souvenir seller must pay a fee.

Armed with a temporary restraining order, six marshals Saturday walked the Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade route in search of illegal hawkers. They found no sign of the contraband.
