minnesota politicians suddenly find a way to get the booze flowing

wow, that worked even faster than i predicted.

i still find it stunning that the entire republican caucus in the state legislature was willing to make 22,000 minnesotans lose their paychecks to make sure that the state's millionaires don't pay a few hundred dollars more each year. well, maybe it isn't stunning that politicians want to do it. i just can't believe that we live in a political culture that would allow them to do it and then expect to ever be elected again.
