Somewhere in Oregon, there is a young man being raised to be honest and take responsibility for his occasional wrongdoing.
We know that because Oregon Gov. Kate Brown tweeted a letter of apology she received from him yesterday.
“I think we can forgive Samuel, don’t you think, Oregonians?” the governor tweeted.
The young man included the pen and $1 to cover the cost of the hazelnut.
The governor sent a pen back to the kid.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
