Last week I didn’t do a Wrap™, instead I wrote over 1,000 words about Minnesota’s congressional delegation and the pending congressional vote on Syria and how people voted may or may not affect them in 2014. So, I did that, and then everything changed and Congress didn’t end up voting on the Syria resolution after […]
