Johnson, Witt and Boone should nix the Nike immunization billWe have enormous sympathy for state legislators who are trying to hammer out a compromise budget. We have absolutely no sympathy for state lawmakers who are stumbling all over each other in their attempt to kiss Nike's corporate logo.

Steve Duin, in a column published on this page, details the absurd rush to provide immunity from annexation for Nike's corporate campus.

We trust that Clatsop County's emissaries to Salem know better. We earnestly hope that state Sen. Betsy Johnson, Rep. Brad Witt and Rep. Debbie Boone will vote against the Nike giveaway and that Gov. Ted Kulongoski would veto it.
