I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Those who speak the truth are heroes, anything less is a lie.

A Short Sighted Neanderthal Whore

Looks like we're at a point when the tax committee will be playing ball. I've talked with my representative already -- several times. He told me a funny story about leaning toward probably supporting it...

His reasoning: Since we (he and I, oh and those who vote for him) don't reside in Hennepin County, supporting this won't adversely affect any of 'us' monetarily! (my note: or his re-election chances!) Really it was a pretty funny story especially coming from a Democrat.

I won't out him for being a short sighted neanderthal whore of the stadium lobbyists as he may yet change his mind and vote no (siding with 2/3 of Minnesotans who don't want public funding for any stadium!)...but feel free to call through the list with your opinion.
