I'm sitting in the gallery overlooking the Minnesota House of Representatives. They just passed the higher ed funding bill by a 103-31 margin after very little debate. Rep. Carlos Mariani is now pimping some bill dealing with charter schools. Of course there's no end in sight to the budget battle.

But more importantly Borussia Monchengladbach and Michael Bradley pulled off as massive 1-0 road victory today over Energie Cottbus. Dante saved them from hell (or at least Bundesliga 2) with a 90th minute goal. They are now three points clear of the relegation zone with just two matches left to play.
