Progressive Minnesotan Candidates

Al Franken declared his candidacy for the US Senate today, as a resident of the great state of Minnesota. Much more interesting—to me, at least—is the fact that my good pal John Nephew of Atlas Games also declared his candidacy for the city council of Maplewood, Minnesota.

It’s always great to see smart, articulate people get involved in the civic arena, and I applaud both John and Al for stepping up to these challenges.
