Somewhere, over the rainbow, a blog is born. A blog for Kansas. A blog for America. A blog by a reporter with a difficult-to-pronounce last name. But most importantly, a blog that is AMERICA'S ONLY PLACE dedicated to the vital intersection of politics and Sunflowers. The Heartland gods nod in wise approval.

On to Minnesota

Typing as I pack. Tomorrow leaving for a weekend in Minnesota, where my brother is getting married. My job is to wear a tuxedo and not embarrass him. I will do my best.

And I will undoubtedly reflect on my sudden injection from the beltway into a swing state -- not how I remember the place where I lived the first quarter-century of my life, but how it is now. Times they are a-changin'.
