At 3 p.m., Ted Wheeler is hurling himself off of Big Pink. Seriously.

Unless someone's grabbed hold of state treasurer Ted Wheeler's facebook password, it looks like y'all should get downtown in the next hour:

Click through to read the comments on his page, starting with "Excuse me - are you losing your mind?"

Of course, while he's all about prudence when it comes to government finances, he's always been a risk taker in his personal life -- having summited Mt. Everest and snow-shoed to the North Pole.

The US Bancorp Tower (aka "Big Pink") is 42 stories and 536 ft tall, and is the second-tallest building in Oregon.

I'll resist the temptation to outline the state succession policy for you.

Good luck, Mr. Treasurer.

Update: 3:50 p.m. On his Facebook page, Ted just posted "I made it safely...Awesome experience!" Phew.
