Get your signed copy of "Overburden" between ballots

If you happen to be at the DFL convention in Duluth this weekend, consider stopping by to buy a signed copy of “Overburden: Modern Life on the Iron Range.” I’m a delegate out of the Itasca County group and will be on the floor. The books probably won’t be on the floor, but I’ll be selling them out of my trunk in the parking lot (Range style!) during lulls in the action. “Overburden,” published by Red Step Press of Duluth, won the Northeastern Minnesota Book Award and has received fine notices. It’s a book that will explain, through humor, history and stories, how the Iron Range has such an influence on the process this weekend and why those ore docks you see on Lake Superior are there in the first place.

Yes, this is pure tom-shillery, but look at the bright side. I’m not asking you to vote for anyone or commit to anything. Just give me money in exchange for goods. America, yes! For Republicans and independents, just send me an e-mail and we’ll figure out a way for you to buy your signed copy, too. I will invest the money in America on behalf of my family. As you can tell, I am not a socialist.
