Yes, nearly seven and a half hours after the festivities kicked off in St. Paul, we're still here, and we're still listening.
All of the amendments have been presented, and now we're listening to largely anti-stadium members of the Minnesota House of Representatives tell us for the 206th time why they're anti-stadium. None of them have presented much outside of the "WON'T SOMEBODY PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN" argument, but they're preventing the larger vote from taking place.
Hopefully this whole thing won't take a hell of a lot longer, and we can use this for some of the aftermath of the vote as well, since I'm sure there's going to be a reaction either way. We just need to persevere and keep our fingers crossed and see how this ends up. One of the political reporters mentioned on the Twitter that he thinks it will pass with more than the 68 required votes, which is nice.
But, we're still going, folks. Hang in there!
