Sad to say, I live in Minnesota

In response to the Minnesota representative bashing North Dakota’s Capitol, I am sad to say I live in Minnesota.

I was born and raised in North Dakota and had three children in Bismarck, where we went to the Capitol often. What a great place to bring the kids.

I think North Dakota should build a stadium in Fargo, and still call them the Minnesota Vikings, kind of like the New York Giants playing in New Jersey. Then they should move the training camp from Mankato to the front lawn of the beautiful Capitol building in Bismarck. It doesn’t get any better than that.

Maybe they could even put in a bullet train from the Twin Cities to Fargo (through Alexandria, past Big Ole, the True Viking).
