Candidate forum in Red Wing

October 14th, 2006

This past week was a time of subtle upheavals, and good ones at that, but I’m still trying to figure out what it all means, much less get all these emails and documents absorbed, forwarded and filed. I even forgot Kenya’s birthday, not that she gives a rodent’s rump, but she’s getting old, and has started noticably slowing down and feeling her age.

Anyway, it’s the season of politics, and yesterday I had been invited to speak to/with a delightfully challenging group of movers and shakers in the Cities — and they were very interested in this fight with the Red Wing City Council about background checks. Over a dozen people have downloaded the A.G.’s opinion, telling the City they’re out of line.

Here’s the AG Opinion again, in case you missed it, it’s WELL WORTH the read:
