75 years ago today, the 21st Amendment was ratified thereby ending our long national nightmare of prohibition. There are few things better than a nice dark beer of Irish descent...

I had the opportunity to visit the Pilsner-Urquell brewing factory in the Czech Republic while traveling through Europe. While I am not usually a fan of light beer, this was fantastic...

So, Happy Repeal Day and here is your daily romp through the Minnesota blogosphere:

SCSU Scholars, run by economist King Banaian, is giving out some perspective on the current economic recession. While I don't agree with many things Banaian touts, I am certainly not going to argue with a respected economist.

It looks like Jim Ramstad is making a play for the Drug Czar position. Check it out at Minnesota Independent.

Over at a blog I haven't read or seen before, Foreign & Domestic, there is an intersting question: how many events can you pick out of the "We Didn't Start The Fire" song by Billy Joel (without using the google).

Jeff Rosenberg is throwing out ideas on how to fix the current budget deficit in Minnesota. Writing at MN Progressive Project, he is making his usual case for compromise and keeping all options on the table. It's a great read...

One of the more moving stories I have seen in movie form is Hotel Rwanda. MinneAfrica is calling into question whether the story of Rusesabagina is accurate.

Across The Great Divide has an interesting take on the current economic situation. Why should we expect more fiscal responsibility from our government when we don't practice ourselves?

How do you rebuild the conservative movement? Why Twitter, of course! Also over at True North is a story about how the nearly super minority Republican House Caucus is really excited to be irrelevent.

Andy Barnett is still around (I wonder if he has found a job yet) and still spreading the hate. How DARE someone in the evangelical movement express a viewpoint counter to Barnett's!

OMG, Jeff Fecke at Blog of the Moderate Left is a 'Friends' nerd! If you don't get the connection, you are not a 'Friends' nerd. Unfortunately, I am forced to be a 'Friends' nerd because of my wife.

Does anybody other than Gary Gross really care about Steve Gottwalt's reaction to the budget deficit? Seriously? Oh, and by the way nobody cares about what Fred Thompson thinks either...
