    silly me.  But before that he was minority leader, back in the bad old days when the House was in R hands.  I went with a lay delegation from Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon to lobby against the payroll lenders & as luck would have it I wound up in his office.  He was vigorous and engaged but stymied by the then-Speaker.  Next session we won.

    have you no sense? ... plenty of it he answered but at times we get tired of using it ... don marquis
