An unusually upbeat (in a sense) day in our local paper, just before the election.
Star Tribune headline tells us that the MAGA extremist running for Governor has a tax plan that would ruin the economy. Tope headline of the paper.
Lower down on the same page: Jan 6 panel subpoenas Trump, with a pic of Bannon being shuffled off after sentencing. Trump has a November deadline.
Still on front cover:
Iran, China intelligence among seized documents
Calls for (MAGA Extremist) Sviggum to resign (from UMN regents) intensify (after he says that what may be the whitest of our campuses in Minnesota is too diverse! He refuses to resign, by the way, so this is going to be an interesting fight.)

Inside the paper:
- Emmett Till statue unveiled
- Good news for Ethiopian refugees
- First woman (Eve?) PM of Italy
- Page A5: Bannnon gets 4 months
- PA Man gets 34 months for attacks on press, cops, on Jan 6
- Seized (Trump) document describes Iran nuke program

Piles of amazing infrastructure news.
