Kudos to Jack Baratto for his Letter to the Editor making it clear to readers how the state is relentlessly taxing us for road repairs (that never get done) and education (it's always for the kids, isn't it?) that is failing. But the politicians and the teachers union always need more money. But where does it go? Walz is a con man and Jerry Burnes, editor of the Mesabi Daily News, endorsed him for governor. And so did the unions up here. So readers, you figure out what's going on.
