Oregon's governor donned bicycle gear and pedaled his mountain bike from his residence to the state capitol building. He wants his 8500 "capitol complex" state employees to bike, walk, carpool and use mass transit to save 25,000 gallons of fuel over the summer.
That's a start, I s'pose. Good for Governor Kulongoski!
Of course, our Governor Otter is more the "classic SUV commuter" - he drives in from his Gentleman Ranch out there in Star, joining the thousands of other long-distance single-occupant-vehicle commuters. I don't see that changing... after all, he's got a state credit card!
