Still Crazy After All These Years

Or at least months. Betsy Hammond and the Oregonian have both claimed their places in my private vision of hell - a place shared with driving through Beaverton at rush hour, and accompanied by the overstuffed sacks of mouse turds, Donald Rumsfeld, Bob Nye, Randy "Duke" Cunningham, Billy Dalto, Wayne Scott, and Karen Minnis. Steve Law's article on PERS in yesterday's Salem Statesman Journal was picked up by the AP and reprinted in the Eugene Register Guard and the Seattle Times. It is pretty pathetic when the Oregonian ignores an opportunity to undo some of their past damage, while the Seattle Times finds it newsworthy enough to report. Apparently some people are too biased or stubborn to learn from their mistakes, or too stupid to recognize they've made them in the first place.

P.S. PERS has a new summary study of Replacement Ratios posted at their website today. I'm sure Betsy and the Oregonian will find some way to use this document to villify more PERS retirees. I can hardly wait to see what kind of "picking and choosing" will take place with these data. After all, we don't seem to be getting poorer fast enough.
