Topic - Mark Hatfield
The Oregon House voted Friday to pull a statue of Oregon pioneer Jason Lee from a prominent place in the U.S. Capitol and replace it with one of Mark Hatfield, the influential Oregon politician and World War II veteran who died in 2011 at the age of 89.
Mark Hatfield's job is far from typical. Sure, he's got co-workers, a uniform, and even an office with a view. But unlike other jobs that promise higher-level opportunities, the 30-year-old Annandale native's career puts him near the ceiling of an airplane cabin during a zero-gravity maneuver.
