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.
