That's the way (uh huh uh huh) I like it

Oregon ballot measures 39 (no condemnation for private developers) and 44 (prescription drug benefits for the uninsured) are projected to have passed, and all the rest to have failed, according to the O. Yay.

UPDATE, 11/8, 1:54 a.m.: Not so fast! I'm not sure whether I was reading the projections correctly earlier this evening, but it turns out that while Measure 46 failed, its companion measure, 47, passed. More here.

A good night to be a Democrat. I almost forgot what it felt like.

I can't remember the last time I looked at a slate of statewide ballot measure results and liked what I saw. It might even be the first tme since I became of voting age.

(I can still bitch about all of Salem's annexations passing, though.)

How much did the Fire/Police pass by? I pretty much voted the way of the majority except on this one. I thought the City didn't really fix this system, and wanted to force them back to the drawing board.
