A new post at Smart Politics, Red State Have Higher Crime Rates Than Blue States, prompted my comment at the site:
Readers of the earlier version of Bluestem Prairie may remember that I have a deep appreciation of urban legends--and an even greater delight in debunking them. Not that it helps persuade those who are uncritically unwilling to consider conflicting evidence that disputes an email confirming a deeply held worldview.
I'll be on the road to cover Margaret Anderson Kelliher's campaign kick-off on her brother's Blue Earth County farm later this morning. Look for a post on that and a second on recent town hall meetings in Minnesota later in the afternoon.
