Oregonians left to fend for themselves at the pump

Oprah for president?
Oprah was on stage at The Oscars to accept the Cecil B DeMille Award (aka lifetime achievement). Her speech had everyone wondering if they were watching a preview of Oprah 2020. As the first black woman to take home the award, she honored the past – like the late civil rights hero Recy Taylor. And made us hopeful for the future – “when no one has to say #MeToo.” — Washington Post
