We're straight outta St. Paul today, and if nothing else, both our host cities have turned out to be wonderful places that deserve special mention (and according to the packaging materials, are both celebrating 150th birthdays this year). Denver has a deservedly high reputation already, but since I've always been a fan of the Twin Cities and they (it?) often come in for a lot of unkind mockery (Cold! Somalis! Dumbbell accents!), I want to note that the greater metro area here offers a unique value proposition: blue state living at red state prices. Just lose the 8 o'clock liquor store closing times and it'll be perfect. Thanks for reading our convention coverage.
