Of Edicts & Editorials
This unfolding drama story of a boy, his girl and a state show the limits of our own patience when it comes to the work of commissions tasked with such work. In an age when editorials are edicts handed down from some meeting room with poor lighting we would all do better to take a minute or two before we pass judgement.
His resignation will bring change and more importantly focus back to the office of Governor and to the people of Oregon, which even John Kitzhaber knows is the most important reason for serving. As the Ethics Commission, the FBI, continue their jobs we hope that their work is allowed to continue without interference.
Oregon will get through this, we will continue to fly with our own wings.The turbulence will die down and we'll get back on course.
