New honor

Just when some people were questioning the Oregon residency of the new Miss Oregon, Kari Virding, Gov. Ted Kulongoski today appointed her as a judge on the Multnomah County Circuit Court. "Oregon is fortunate that this talented woman has dedicated her career to community service and seeks to serve the public in her scholarly duties," Kulongoski said in a press release. "Increasing diversity on the bench continues to be a priority for me because I believe it is important to have judges of varied backgrounds and experiences. Given her representation of two different hair color groups and experiences in two different jurisdictions, including one with many minority residents, she will enrich the Multnomah County bench and make it one step closer to reflecting the population that the Court serves.”

Habeas corpus!!!!

BABEAS corpus!

I've often thought that if a St. Bernard were appointed to the bench in Oregon, Oregon lawyers wouldn't question it, but go out and buy dog bisquits. And the pr folks would rail on about another Oregon progresssive "first".

It could not be a St. Bernard -- separation of church and state. Many of our gubernatorial appointees are other types of hounds, however.
