Minnesota's legislative session sure is busy

Soap operas can't compete with the real drama.

*See who is busy by checking the Minnesota Fantasy Legislature's Power Rankings. On the flip side of that, you'll see who isn't. Do they represent you?

*Keep one eye on the issues (or legislators) you're interested in on Votetracker. There are RSS feeds for your convenience!

*The Minneapolis Bridge Collapse still has impact, as the House passes bill to compensate bridge survivors.

*Midday at 11:06 a.m. CT: Bipartisanship takes a hit at the Capitol this week.

*Join or start conversations about the session in our online discussion group, mnpolitics.gather.com. Campaign 2008 might be everywhere, but there are still plenty of politics at home.

Didn't you want to be a rock star?

Most of us have wanted to be a rocker at one time or another (or perhaps still do...) and the Musicheads want to know exactly which rock star you wanted to be growing up. The answers range from sweet to funny to... classical music?

"In high school I wanted to be Siouxsie Sioux, and I wore the hair and eyeliner to prove it." - Jacquie M.

"I'm not ashamed to admit that I'd still kind of like to be Paul Simon." - Hannah

"i wasn't too into rawk stars. i wanted to be Tchaikovsky!" - david b.

Jump in to add the name of the rocker you wanted (or want!) to be.
