1974 Oregon Senate Questionnaire

The mid-seventies were trying times, as you can see by reading this questionnaire. Our nation's presidency was awash in scandal, gasoline was expensive and hard to find, and the country was crying for change. Hmmmm sound familiar?

Oregon Senator Bob Packwood sent out this random questionnaire asking residents' opinions on what should be done to manage these crises.

It was interesting to find this letter. But sad too, because the intended recipient apparently did not respond, and their voice was not heard.

Wow--looks like not much has changed. Tch tch tch. How great this stuff has been saved. A look back is sometimes so very revealing.
