Cold shot

This is a tough blogging moment -- there are some obvious things going on that aren't really ripe for discussion, and others that await further developments. It's also cold as hell right now in the Twin Cities:

Seriously, why do we live here?
There will be a thaw eventually. But right now, everything is cold. One interesting tidbit about Mayor Val Johnson's recent scrape with the law:

Things that make you go hmmmm.
So the mayor has expired tabs and needs a public defender? To quote a guy from Hibbing, something is happening here, but you don't know what it is.

You don't need a weatherman to tell you that you're frozen out.

That she has a public defender further brings up the question "what is her day job?". I don't mind paying for public defenders for those who truly need them, but those with the time, money, and energy to be in politics usually don't come to mind as likely candidates.


Also worth noting is that the counsel for the City of Brighton has his name on the criminal complaint, the only document delivered so far. It suggests, again, that dropping the expired tags charge was a "big wet kiss" to the mayor.

I hope you never have to fathom it, good sir. Nothing good about it.

Yes. Yes we do.

We're heading Gino's way in late Feb.

OK, court documents say her day job is caretaker to her mother. Whether or not she's being paid for that is not clear--I learned a week ago that you actually can be paid for caring for an elderly relative, since it saves Medicaid costs of nursing homes. So she actually is mostly eligible for a public defender, and dropping the expired tabs charge does not keep her in a banking job or something.
