Quote of the Day

“I do a lot of work on campaigns. But the money part of it drives me crazy. I think our democracy is close to being bought and that’s very troubling. I worry about what’s happening with radical Islam. I think we have done a good job [in Minnesota] of integrating all beliefs. But you hope we don’t get directly touched by the awfulness because that could change how things are working here. And I worry about why we have these terrible, deep divisions in politics that prevent us from doing things that need to be done. I know there’s blame on both sides, but—this won’t surprise you—I think it’s mostly because of what the Republicans have become.’’

-- Walter Mondale, in Doug Grow's excellent piece, “Walter Monday on life and loss, and finding ways to matter,” on MinnPost.
