Al Franken

We had a good time up in Duluth, MN, at the Duluth Labor Temple. It was a fundraiser for Wellstone Action (note correct title). This September they are going to be opening a six acre memorial for Paul & Sheila & the others that died in the plane crash. It was great to be around so many progressive, like-minded people. There were MN politicians, the mayor of Ashland, WI, union members & Al Franken who gave a great talk. He became quite choked up when talking about Paul Wellstone. It was good to see someone act like a normal person when discussing such a sad situation. We also had some good Mexican food & I met the nephew of Gus Hall.
