Pork, Pols, Pomeroy, and -- oh, yeah -- that war.

Washington Post article on all the add-on projects in the war funding bill. Sensible quotes from Rep. Earl and, in what may be his WaPo debut, Jack Dalrymple. Not bad for a lt. gov., Jack.

War: bad. Earmarks: well ... maybe.

Both Sides Now

North Dakota's proposed "trigger law" banning all abortions if Roe v. Wade is overturned meets with joyous/wrathful praise/condemnation by people who are really concerned by the issue.

Abortion law hooray!

Abortion law boo!

More Klosterman, Onion AV Club

Brief mention of UND about halfway through. The rest is the usual pop culture absurdity.

Thomas Kleppe, 87

Notable North Dakotan I've never heard of passes. Before my time, or more accurately, having served under Ford, right of the time of my birth. The Washington Post has a presumably canned obit befitting a 1970s D.C. official. The Bismarck Tribune has a short obit, but seemingly netted a quote from G.H.W. Bush (there's no wire attribution, anyway). Nice going, Virginia Grantier!
