What a week!  The Vikings stadium plan made it through in the nick of time, with the team expected to play there in 2016.  The Vikings will play at the Metrodome in 2012, but what happens after that?  They may get some more time in the 'dome, but they will play at least one season on the University Of Minnesota campus at TCF Stadium.

After Years Of Discussion And A Reality That The Vikings Could Leave, A Stadium Plan Is Approved

I have been following this for awhile and 'As The Stadium Turns' appears to be ending with the end result being a brand new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings.  Will this benefit Viking's owner Zygi Wilf?  Of course it will but he is the one who is putting up the lions share of money for the stadium, and more than most NFL owners are on the hook for.  The big picture is that this will benefit the state too and not just with the instant construction jobs it creates.

Scott Walker Recall Primary Election Confusing To Some Voters

Today I went and voted in the WI Recall Primaries.  This was my first time voting in a few years, but seeing that I've finally settled down, picked my home, and decided to get more politically active I went out to vote.  I was surprised that at 3:30 PM there was a line at my polling place.  There was a steady line from the time I arrived to well after I left.  (I drove by again after running errands, as it was on my way home.)  I was searching the web about the recall when I got home and saw this story where some voters are being confused by the ballot.

Vikings Appear To Have Had Successful Draft, But Time Will Tell

The 2012 NFL draft is over and now all the experts come out and analyze each and every pick and project whether it was a good draft or not.  If you're a Vikings fan, it is great to see that they are receiving overall positive grades on their draft, especially the first round.  To me, it's all about trying to fill needs on your team with the best athlete available based on advice of the people you trust in the organization.

Senate Passes Synthetics Bill 64-0; Business Owners Selling Synthetic Drugs Will Face Jail Time

I don't think anyone doubts that Governor Mark Dayton will sign this bill.  Synthetic drugs have been targeted for awhile and I think this type of legislation will become standard.  They key to this bill is that new chemicals can be added to the bill over time, so as new synthetics get created, they can quickly become illegal to sell.  That means places like Duluth's Last Place On Earth may find it difficult to work around this bill and sell synthetics.

What are your thoughts on synthetic drugs and this bill?
