I did what I could to prompt the Dem-NPL leadership to note the centennial of the Non-Partisan League. Clearly, last year’s festivities weren’t enough for Lloyd Omdahl, but this year is chugging along with a celebratory dinner or movie showing here or there. It’s not the rip-roaring “we’re back” I was hoping for, but the NPL brand isn’t going anywhere, it’s part and parcel of the Progressive experience in North Dakota.
It would be nice, for example, if the state law mandating political parties to terminate their legal name with “Party” — something that was not the League’s idea to be sure — was rolled back. But right now, it’s kind of a weasels-guarding-the-chicken-coop situation on that.
And among other things, NorthDecoder.com is back online. I might as well blog again a little bit too.
