I am announcing today that I will resign as Governor of the State of Oregon.
Personally, I'm delighted that Dr. John Kitzhaber has left the Oregon political scene. The reasons for his oh-so-timely retirement are unimportant compared with the resumption of good government to this state.
Why do I assume he will be replaced by "good government"?
It couldn't possibly be any worse.
