What were the governors thinking?

  Dear HCN,

Thank you for your open and honest article by Ray Ring regarding Montana's governor as a poor choice to lead the West (HCN, 8/5/02). Whatever could the Western Governors' Association be thinking of to select Gov. Martz as their leader? Ray has written a timely, straightforward commentary that should be a wake-up call to those in the state and in the region.
