I share your frustration. Of course, 30 Oregon House Democrats voted for the bill. Just five voted against it. In the Senate, 16 voted for it - just two voted against it.

Some of those who voted against it are friends of mine. I share your frustration, but I intend to direct it specifically at those who voted No, rather than generically at all the Democrats.

Kari, I hear you. If it hadn't been the House Democratic leader who was instrumental in killing the Metolius protection bill, I'd feel differently. But to have Hunt squash one of the most important pieces of environmental legislation in the 2009 session...that hurts my progressive soul, big time.

....that hurts my progressive soul, big time

Brian...it should hurt your progressive soul. Mine is still aching today and I suspect it will be for a long time.
