Posted on 04/07/14 at 04:13 pm in response to Kahn, Noor to face primary after deadlocked DFL convention

given that Noor has made it this far is that he will prevail in the primary, given the zeal of his supporters and the likelihood of a light turnout given the primary is in early August.

Posted on 03/04/14 at 01:46 pm in response to Twin Cities, how do we really feel about mass transit?

Asking is one thing, but funding is quite another. Start now to get that $20 a year wheel tax passed in 2018, and have the shovel-ready transit projects lined up by then too.

Posted on 10/16/13 at 02:41 pm in response to Will Minnesota's House Republicans support a budget deal?

will blame the moderates who will vote in favor of the Senate bill, but the reality is that it's the moderates in the Republican Party who are helping the conservatives out of a tight spot.

don't elect Republicans if you care about wildlife.

is for the public's enjoyment, which is a legitimate thing for government to do. Last weekend at the Irish Fair my wife (who is an artist herself) and I enjoyed a performance of old Irish and Scots lumberjack songs that was in part made possible by support from the State of Minnesota, and there was a large and appreciative audience there who enjoyed it also.
