Controversy in north Minneapolis, Dist. 59B, DFL primary.
I first read of it on Johnny Northside, so you can do the same, and follow the links. It has a miasma to it. But what's to be done? It looks to be a district where you win the DFL primary, you will win the general election and the State House seat. We have some of that in North Metro, other party. Here. Were unions at fault in this one? I generally am pro-union, but I admit sometimes they can misstep. Losing friends a few at a time can have them standing alone when the Republican reaper comes to cut their jobs off at the knees. Tomorrow often does not take care of itself. Today is the time for unimpeachable decencies.

App. 2012) (alt. online); Petition of Northern States Power Co., 414 NW 2d 383 (Minn.1987). John Borger, a talented lawyer, wrote as amicus in Moore v. Hoff, and won Hunter v. Hartman, 545 N.W.2d 699 (Minn.App. 1996). Paul Wellstone was great, but moderate. He did not straddle the fence, nor compromise. Forget letting right wingers define a narrow band of politics remote from Wellstone. Build on Wellstone, move the debate left, and "Tax the Rich."
