One thing we learned in the last 30 minutes of the Legislature 

Which was most important?
  1. A bonding bill?
  2. Approval of a referendum for the outdoors?
  3. Getting an extra $500 per year from the average Minnesota family in higher gas taxes?
If you answered 3, you read the papers.

Though you have to love this:
"Time ran out. I was so close," said an upset Rep. Alice Hausman (DFL-St. Paul), left, who is comforted by Rep. Mary Murphy (DFL-Hermantown), after the Legislative session ended before Hauseman's bonding bill could be heard in the House of Representatives at the State Capitol in St. Paul on Monday May 21, 2007.
Boo hoo! I didn't get my pork!
