My oldest friend of nearly 30 years, Dave, took his folks to the Twins game last night for the old man’s 80th birthday. They entered a contest for a chance to sit in the broadcast booth during the game and won. I’m nearly as pleased about this as if it were my own parents. Dave said the best thing was just watching his dad have a casual conversation with Bert Blyleven. For a MN sports fan, it’d be hard to top an 80th birthday in the booth. Coolest thing I’ve seen this month.
Note: Dick and Bert operate in the booth sans air conditioning, but keep the fridge stocked with Coors Light.

The tribes have 18 casinos in Minnesota. They have had exclusive rights for years. Now it’s time to share the wealth with the rest of the state. How many more decades do we have to feel guilty?

Michelle Person supports reneging on treaties if it’s for a good cause, like subsidizing the Minnesota Vikings’s stadium construction costs. (via edkohler)

I’m happy that you’ve made the statement. But I cannot agree with most of my colleagues. See, I don’t think an adult of your intelligence ought to be commended for simply, at long last, telling the truth.
