Traveling On

I'm always amazed at the strange twists and turns in the PERS fiesta.  The latest irony to hit the street is that the Salem Statesman-Journal's crack PERS and public employee reporter, Dennis Thompson, has been lured from his reporter's job to a job as Public Affairs spokesman for the Oregon Department of Revenue - the people who collect the income taxes, the people who will track down PERS miscreants, and the people who are all members of PERS.  While Dennis was reasonably fair and mostly accurate in his reporting on PERS, he will now find himself to be a beneficiary of PERS' supposed munificence.  I wish him well in his new job.  Instead of criticizing PERS and demanding all the information on every PERS retiree, Dennis can now join the PERS party and find out what it is like on the other side of the fence.
