The gang is back together (¡including Javier!) and bemoans the dearth of interesting Minnesota stories to analyze as Minnesota takes its traditional month of August off. As always, we find the local angle...
No shortage of national stories though, as the EPA becomes an environmental scofflaw, Old Glory flies again in la Habaña, and #Carlymania debuts nationally.
Also, LOTS of Trump.
