Circus life

As the Minnesota Legislature scrambles to cobble together a budget before Midnight on Monday, there's speculation on where to meet if a special session would need to be called. Since renovations on the MN State Capitol are slated to begin the millisecond the regular session ends, any special session would, by law, have to occur in a public forum in St Paul.

Star Tribune columnist (and prolific DFL apologist) Lori Sturdevant conveyed Gov. Mark Dayton's suggestion via Twitter.

Ah, but the governor's office is a model of decorum, eh?

Since we're on the circus theme, it would also be fitting if the role of organ grinder were played by public employee unions while the part of the monkey fulfilled by Gov. Dayton.
