Minnesota's primary is on September 9th. I have a sign in my yard to remind me, and it's our first yard sign, which makes me feel a little giddy: I belong; I'm involved. Not only will it be a pleasurable and amusing primary because of Al Franken, but I'll also be voting for my first school levy, in a district where I live, in a district where I worked. As many of you know, school budgets are a sensitive issue for me, as it determined a sharp twist in fate, and while I'm grateful for the results, I will always bemoan the no that shifted my landscape. So much depends on yes.
