Oregon is the 33rd state in the union of the United States of America. It is a beautiful state, with deserts, lush green forests, high snowy mountains, craggy river gorges and deep green valleys. I grew up in an Oregon where people are generally kind, even tempered and fair minded – for the most part, open to new ideas and new people, so long as both do not threaten the generally high quality of life you can have in Oregon.
Even with the best intentions of its people, Oregon is a state of the United States and a part of this world – and with that comes good and bad decisions made. Oregon Next is a commentary for the most part about events in Oregon, but also in a wider context of events in the world. If you disagree with my politics, that’s okay. We have room for differing opinions in the State of Oregon. Just give me the same courtesy I extend to you.
