Might be two standard deviations there, hon 

There could be some studying needed by Patty Wetterling, who has taken a new job as coordinator of the state's sexual violence prevention unit (h/t: Andy Barnett).
The 57-year-old Democrat said she was exploring new opportunities after her narrow election loss to U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann in November and that she applied when the job was posted in March.
