Memo to self: Volunteer to work more days in the Prairie Home Companion Store at the MPR State Fair booth. I had a fabulous time today. Jason DeRusha of WCCO was kind enough to get my best side.
Friday is MPR Day at the State Fair. You’ll want to stop and meet some of the show hosts at the booth. I’ll be occasionally over at the NewsQ tent. I think we’re going to play, “Are You Smarter Than A Blogger,” although I’m not exactly sure how that works.
