Governor Mark Dayton joined me at 9:35 this morning. We talked about a variety of issues at the Capitol right now, including his tax relief bill, Sunday liquor sales, medical marijuana and more.
For Midmorning Money I chatted with Kaitlyn Wells from Marketwatch about her article “Don’t Get Cheated at Funeral Home.” A very interesting look at some ways you can save money when someone passes on. Read more here.
At 10:35 I spoke with Stephanie Simon, Senior Education Reporter for POLITICO, about how vouchers in 14 states are going to schools that teach creationism. According to the piece “many of these faith-based schools go beyond teaching the Biblical story of the six days of creation as literal fact. Their course materials nurture disdain of the secular world, distrust of momentous discoveries, and hostility toward mainstream scientists. They often distort basic facts about the scientific method — teaching for instance that theories such as evolution are by definition highly speculative because they haven’t been elevated to the status of “scientific law.” You read Stephanie’s story at Politico.
