While hundreds of Oregonians flock to the coastendangering retirees in the process — Oregon Governor Brown reportedly is “frustrated” that Oregonians aren’t being smarter, literally while herself resisting pressure to issue a statewide stay-at-home order. This is what happens when an Oregonian “leader” believes the hype about how nice and progressive we are here: she lulls herself into a false sense of security with the myth that here in Oregon we simply do the right thing. Almost every right thing Oregonians have ever done they’ve done by making it law, not by voluntary encouragement. Every right thing Brown has done during this pandemic, on the other hand, she’s had to be dragged kicking and screaming into doing.
