First, North Dakota lost the world's tallest structure to Dubai, and now we lost Byron Dorgan, who's like the only other thing we're known for. (Also: the movie Fargo, which actually mostly takes place in Bemidji. But that's not going anywhere because Marge Gunderson is untouchable.)
I'm bummed about this, but I am so ridiculously excited about the prospect that Heidi Heitkamp might run for Senate. I was like a diehard fan of hers when she ran against John Hoeven for governor when I was fifteen (because I was a dork that way!) and that has not changed. She is classy, and John Hoeven has a mustache. You do the math.
