Do the right thing

The more I think about it, the happier I am that I voted yes on Oregon Ballot Measure 34. My misgivings about the voters taking these matters into their own hands have evaporated. The state Forestry Board members have frightening conflicts of interest, and there's no hope of getting a reasonable forest management plan out of the red-meat-Republican Oregon House.

As I concluded when I decided to vote for the measure, this is a war, wherein all is fair.

And to recap my other important votes:

POTUS: Kerry/Edwards!
Secretary of State: Bill Bradbury.
Portland Mayor: Tom Potter!
Portland City Council: Nick Fish!
Multnomah County measures:
26-58, salary commission to set salaries: No.
26-59, county lobbyist: Yes.
26-60, repeal term limits: No.
26-64, repeal county income tax: No.
Statewide ballot measures:
31, election postponed if candidate dies: No.
33, medical marijuana changes: No.
35, limits on pain and suffering awards in medical malpractice cases: No!
36, ban homosexual marriage: No!
37, government must pay to regulate property uses: No!
38, abolish SAIF: No.

Don't look now, but your ballot needs to be in by Tuesday night, and it's now Friday. If you haven't yet voted, do it now!

Yes, but how did you vote on the motor home taxation issue (Measure 32)? Inquiring minds want to know (and are too lazy to click back...)

An unenthusiastic yes on 32.

I'm 14 out of 16. The only ones you're wrong on are this one (34) and 35. Being the child of two physicians I would be disowned if I didn't vote YES on that one...
