You've probably seen the heated back-and-forth between former state Rep. Allen Quist and incumbent federal Rep. Tim Walz about whether or not Quist wants to cut benefits for veterans. Did Quist actually say he's willing to cut benefits? Did Walz manipulate evidence to sound like he did? Should Walz apologize? Does an apology even matter?

As the race for representing Minnesota's First Congressional District rolls on, there have been several good he-said/he-said stories published across Southern Minnesota that bring good due diligence to the debate. Catch up on the coverage here and here.

    'Everything has to be on the table.' I agree with that. It does not suggest the elimination of benefits nor does it suggest that they will actually BE cut. It says what it says; Everything is on the table.
    To exclude one thing will lead immediately to a tidal wave of proposed exclusions and nothing will be judged on it's necessity but rather on it's popularity. That is hardly objective planning or prioritizing.
    I can live with that.
