This is MPR president Bill Kling's last day of work for the company he founded. He'll be feted tonight at a dinner and reception, but last night MPR employees paid tribute to him.
Something great happens to the straight-laced world of MPR News when you give a reporter a camera and tell them it's OK to be funny and irreverent.
Here's a prime example. It comes from MPR higher education beat reporter Tim Post.
Post points out that no company time or equipment was used in the production of his tribute.
Reportedly, there's another video around of a "The Office" parody with Kling playing the part of Michael Scott. That one's been as hard to find online as a state budget agreement.
I think that game needs to be one of the membership incentives.
