Yesterday, responding to Don Ness’s “Gangnam Style” moves, I stoked a Twitter feud in which an Iron Range vs. Duluth “Dance Off” between local legislators was proposed. Will this “Dance Off” occur today? Only time will tell.

On a more serious note, this legislative session will involve crafting a long-term budget solution for Minnesota’s touchy state budget, paying back money borrowed from public schools, reforming the tax code and potentially legalizing gay marriage in Minnesota, if the votes are there. Minnesota’s Democratic-Farmer-Labor party will hold the majority in both houses and the governor’s office for the first time since late 1990.
