Range DFL to hold bean feed, rally in Virginia Thursday

If politics is your thing, the Iron Range DFL will be holding a bean feed and rally at the Miners Memorial Building in Virginia Thursday night with DFL nominee for governor Mark Dayton, U.S. Rep. Jim Oberstar and others on the DFL ticket. Virginia native Paul Metsa will be on hand as the musical entertainment. The event runs from 5:30 to 7:30 and should be quite the barnburner. If the speeches don’t get you, the beans will. This are progressive labor beans and they know how to organize.

The event is open to the public and, no, you do not have to eat beans unless you want to. You do not have to bring beans, unless you want to. The bean thing is a historic reference to the preponderance of bean feeds held during the early years of the Democratic Farmer Labor party. If I’ve learned anything in 12 years of political organizing on the Range it’s that you better show deference to the beans.

Instead of the typical partisan bickering, please use the comments for bean jokes. It’s the sort of thing that unites us, instead of dividing us. Unless we’ve recently eaten beans. See, this can just keep going like this.
