sitting next to Hornstein signs here in SD 60?

We should all put some pressure on Frank to not only campaign for himself, but for Mark Dayton, as well.

Thanks, News Corp, for not allowing good taste to stand in the way of your obsessive crusade against the construction of an Islamic community center in lower Manhattan near the site of the World Trade Center. Today's Post features a beautiful two-page spread arguing that Ground Zero includes basically everything south of Canal and east of Broadway. They illustrate the argument with a grotesque map of the locations of every place in the area where firefighters found human remains following the attack of 9/11.

I guess I'm not that surprised.

Ole' Savior has gone Repub and Barb Davis White is running as a DFLer against Ellison.

The National Weather Service collected 36 reports of tornado sightings, with northwestern and southern Minnesota hardest hit. If the sightings are all confirmed, they would exceed the previous state record of 27 in one day, in 1992.

MINNEAPOLIS — Famous as the self-declared “home of the silver butter knife steak,” Murray’s restaurant in downtown Minneapolis — long a union house — now has stabbed its employees in the back with one of those silver butter knives. And twisted it.

Murray’s wrote to employees February 16 that the business would impose a contract in the wake of two votes by UNITE HERE Local 17 members there to reject unsatisfactory contract offers.

The contract management imposed cuts wages 10 percent for all employees except servers, makes it impossible for employees to continue to afford health insurance, slashes paid vacations, and eliminates free meals and uniforms.

The Whirlpool Corp. plans to start closing its refrigerator plant in Evansville, Ind., on March 26. The refrigerators now manufactured at this plant will be produced in Mexico, eliminating 1,100 local jobs. Meanwhile, Whirlpool--the world's largest home appliance maker--enjoys healthy profits and has received a $19 million economic matching grant that should be creating jobs here in America.

Sign our petition today and tell Whirlpool: Keep It Made in America.
