I first got to know Dan McGrath when we was a pro-smoking advocate, fighting against local and state regulations on indoor smoking. You know how that one turned out.

It runs on compressed natural gas, which produces much less tailpipe emissions than gasoline or diesel fuel. It makes the run from MSP Airport to Rochester and back.

It's Winona, home of the Watkins Company.

Seems like the pro-Rogers Camp has some friends in the media.

I am reminded of a recent television program I saw on the work of George and Joy Adamson, of "Born Free" fame. It was quite disturbing to watch their casual attitude toward safety around lions and other big cats, and later in the show a child was injured and a man was killed by one of the Adamson's "friendly" lions. How much they really contributed to science and to our knowledge of lions I don't know, but I can't imagine anyone conducting research like that today -- other than Lynn Rogers...

Let's hope the facts prevail.

My office is on one of the remaining pieces of old Rondo, on the south side of 1-94. Around us there are homes, schools, parks, a community center and even a theater.

It's nice to be leading the nation in the effort to switch to cleaner, more renewable energy sources and fuels. Washington, D.C. may be in gridlock, but the states march forward.

...then the inside of a cancer clinic. Today's the day the smoking rate in Minnesota began to wane.

Wind is already in double digits in this state, and the new solar mandate should give a modest nudge to solar power here. Honestly, Rolf, when the story is about Minnesota's electrical power generation, why do you mislead with statistics that don't apply to us?
