The shutdown continues. Chuck and Nancy look like they took the log flume. Trump doubles down and is all in, at the same time, with his address. Amy Klobuchar can't get a meeting, so she takes to Twitter to deem it, 'uncool.' The legislature is back in session, it was a quiet week, aside from a fight over the rules. Remembering an Iron Range legend, Tom Rukavina. Beto takes a trip to the dentist, and no one cares.

Trump really wants to 'shut it down!' and other things we've learned from that tense meeting with Schumer and Pelosi. And who is really to blame for all this? Recent Dems or old Repubs? Criminal justice reform just makes good dollars and sense. And maybe Minnesota republicans lost so bad because they were too 'Trump-like?' Also, there's a caucus block happening in Minnesota.
