Seventeen Seventy does not reference a particular historic date in the early years of our nation.
What Seventeen Seventy does refer to is the 17 states in which Al Franken failed to pay 70 thousand dollars owed in taxes.
And the mention of Al Franken reminds one of the happy party at the home of Senator Olseen in rural Harris some months back where Franken glad-handed none other than Representative Jeremy Kalin and other DFL notables.
What is the old saying?
Follow the money-trail?
