NFL Turns Up Heat: ‘There Are Plenty Of Willing Buyers’ For Vikings

What a year of embarrassment for the state of Minnesota.  It wasn't long ago we made headlines with the shutdown.  Now our "leaders" are being  scrutinized across the country once again.  Regardless of your stance on the stadium issue, everyone should be concerned with the inability to communicate and work together amongst leadership.  They play games and pout.  As I mentioned yesterday, the chances the Vikings will leave Minnesota are now stronger than the chances they will stay.   The lions share of the blame can be placed on elected officials who dragged their feet for 6 years.  I don't know if  it was arrogance or ignorance, or a healthy dose of both on their part.

Dayton Decries Photo ID Push With A ‘Veto’

I posted a story on this last week and thought that it wasn't a bad idea to require more identification to vote.  My point was that government issued ID's are required for the most basic things such as opening a checking account so why not require such identification for something as important as voting?

Photo ID Amendment Passes Senate, Heads To Voters

This amendment would make it a requirement to have a government issued photo ID in order to vote in Minnesota.  I was actually amazed when I moved, and then registered to vote in my new location, how little verification was actually required.

New Office Furniture For 10 Duluth City Workers: $90,000

I can see why this is drawing criticism since Duluth has been in such a penny-pinch mode as of late to get back on track.   I agree that people need good working spaces, but perhaps this could have been introduced in a better way to avoid instant backlash.  Where there bids to get average prices from multiple vendors?  Before you present such things, especially in politics, you have to be prepared for those who will push back.
