My U.S. Senator

Here's a little something positively buried in the Strib:

Sen. Mark Dayton, D-MN., apologized Tuesday to Sen. John Thune and the people of South Dakota after telling Fortune magazine that Rochester's Mayo Clinic "is worth a hell of a lot more than the whole state of South Dakota."

(Thune) condemned the comments Tuesday, calling them "unconscionable, offensive and wholly unbecoming of a United States senator. Unlike Senator Dayton, we may not all be millionaires in South Dakota, but we understand the value of hard work and appreciate real-world experience," he said.

What an asshat. Dr. Frued, Senator Dayton is here to see you.
