Will the U of M be offering a similar deal to non-athlete students? You know, the ones who come to college for an education, rather than an eventual pro contract?

A half-baked idea is not a good one, no matter how fresh it is.

The Prairie Home Companion deserves to be missing from every list.

He has none. The whole piece is just sarcasm levied with condescension, masquerading as commentary. There is nothing that even approaches a policy proposal.

The business community is so disgusted with Minnesota that they are abandoning the state en masse. That is why the state has an unemployment rate below the national average, and household income above the national average. In fact, over the past three years Minnesota household income has grown while the national average household income has decreased.

Why bring him up? Someone might need to remind you that the continual anti-Obama snark is pointless, at best.

Incidentally, I could tell you tales of a long ago actor/President who liked to blame everything on his predecessor, but that would be blasphemy, wouldn'...

Actually, it "fits together" because it's snark about a Democrat, which therefore applies to all Democrats. That's a lot simpler than your purported explanation, and I'm a big Occam's Razor fan.

The Great Communicator did not mention President Carter by name, but yes, the bad things were the fault of his predecessor:...
