Rim Shot

John Mitchell, a US Bank economist based in Portland, had a great opening line in his talk today at the Kitsap Conference Center.

He said every morning he wakes up he has to get clear about what Oregon lawmakers allow him and other residents to do.

Said Mitchell, “I can commit suicide, but I can’t pump my own gas.”

Sounds like a new state slogan is in order.

  1. Careful Steve — Oregonians are proud of their state’s intricacies — even if they can’t pump their own gas. Say what you want, but someday, when you’re crossing the mightly Columbia, you’ll think twice about dissing our neighbor to the south, especially when you ring up your next non-sales tax purchase there.
