The Minnesota State Fair

The Minnesota State Fair is huge! So many people, tons of fun exhibits and pretty much everything you can think of fried and on a stick. My favorite is the fried Snickers bar. Mmm.

Sweet Martha's makes out-of-this-world fresh-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookies. People buy them by the bucket. We bought them by the paper cone, but probably could have eaten a bucket of them.

The Democrats' Pavilion has a special message board for Norm. It saw a lot more traffic than his booth.

What Would Wellstone Do? He'd stand up to Bush and he'd stand up for the American people. All of them. Especially those whose voices would otherwise go unheard.

Me too, sister, me too.

Amen.

Friends!

We spent Labor Day weekend in the Twin Cities with our friends Steph & Ward. MJ loves them (we do too, of course)!
