Finally! Oregon in the Middle of the Pack

Oregon is now number 27 in population among the states. Better than being tied for number 6 in worst state unemployment rate.

Oregon ticked up one position from 28 to 27 since 2000. Staying in the middle means that Oregon won't lose (or gain) national congressional seats.

At tale of mediocre growth, combined with the mediocrity of the state's policies on capital gains, business taxes, regulation and the minimum wage.

Can we now substitute Mediocre for Progressive?

Mediocre for progressive? Nice turn of phrase.

But, on the economic/employment front we're still pitiful. Mediocre would be a major step up.
