Caution: Commisisoner at work

Posted at 8:31 PM on February 7, 2007 by Bob Collins (1 Comments)

The Commissioner has a mother in law who is turning 80 this week so Mrs. Commish and the old-timer have flown to the Berkshire hills of Massachusetts where, the big news is, you can now get DSL in old houses; well, at least this one. That wasn't the case last summer, when I had to drive into town and pretend to be drinking coffee at a local establishment.

This is good news for the MFL, of course, because it means we won't have to go a week without updates. The down side is I didn't get in until this evening so I haven't had a chance to input all the data... and even less time to generate the Web pages out of it. I should be able to do that tonight and have things updated at some time in the morning (before I have to drive to Hartford and pick up the two offspring who are flying in then).

In the meantime, you need to give the people who stop by here every day something new to read. So this is now your turn. What do you think of what's happening at the Capitol this year? Gas on...

Today was an important milestone at the Minnesota Capitol. A bill authored by Rep. Phyllis Kahn of Minneapolis cleared the first House Committee, the first hurdle to becoming a law to provide for Embryonic Stem Cell research to be done in Minnesota. This could position research in Minnesota to play a pioneering role in this exciting medical possibility of improving the lives of people with disabilities and diseases.

The Senate version of the bill is authored by Senator Cohen of St. Paul.

Maybe next year you can take the Mom in Law a vial of youth serum to keep her looking Norman Rockwell youthful.

A House committee approved a bill that would pave the way for new embryonic stem cell research.
