[VIDEO] Dateline Portland Oregon – March 17, 2013: Just another Sunday, out to buy my frozen dinner. Hey, even Citizen Journalists have to eat sometimes don’t they? When out of the corner of my eye … who can it beeeeeee now? (Queue that old Men at Work song for background music.) Yep none other than Governor John Kitzhaber himself grabbing some frozen QFC-brand delicacies. Oh Crap! … my camera dies! Quick: switch to flip phone and beat feet over to Produce.
With the Citizen Journalist still off his radar, the Kitz engages all friendly-like with another constituent who spots him with a locally grown eggplant. “How’s it going?” offers the Gov. “Not good, not good,” comes the angry retort. Ah well, just another day at the market for Oregon’s Political Aristocracy. The CItizen Journalist introduces himself, and politely tries for an interview. But all he gets is the Gov’s angry brush off and the back of the jacket. How would I caption the final look on Kitz’s face? “DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?!?!” Gather the kids around folks, this one’s fun for the whole family.
