    As I was driving from Mankato to Rochester this evening, my son, a Mayo ER doctor, and I were discussing the education system we have, Having been a principal myself, I have some experience with the system too.

    We agreed that the whole education system so obsolete it is almost meaningless. We burden students with courses that are meaningless while piling huge debts on them. Yet we have these people on the education committee who don’t have a clue. They are trying to give old Dobbin a dose of something to make him well so he may pull the plow again while the real world has a new John Deere and the plows are long gone to the scrap pile.

    I shouldn’t wonder if the rest of the legislators have the same problem, There are no visionaries in our Capitol building.
