Zygi Wilf is a villain

This was the front page image at the Star Tribune yesterday. Look how terrified Governor Mike Dayton looks. Look how gleeful Zygi Wilf looks. The same event is engendering these disparate reactions from two different people. This isn’t something that Mark Dayton wants to do, but Wilf is exuberant that it is happening. Who is in the right here? Well, my oft used rule of thumb is...
