Much is happening in the world of the Met Council, not least of which is Rep. Jason Lewis’s amendment to the FAA reauthorization that would require - heaven forbid - that the Met Council comply with federal law by having its board be filled with elected officials. Some in the DFL seem to believe that’s a problem. But what’s really a problem is that the Met Council is a living example of taxation without representation. I’m not sure how you get more American than that as a motivating principle for action.
From my 2016 comparative assessment report on the Met Council.
Sure, e-books have a place in the world. I just prefer real ones, in order to make the job a bit harder for any real life Winston Smith who might be out there.
