So last night I dreamt I was in my first year of law school. I had everything plotted out. Finish law school, then, and I am not kidding here, easily win a senate seat in Minnesota for one term. Anybody can win office in Minnesota, even a potter masquerading as a politician, I bet. I also knew, in my dream, that I would never be re-elected as some other nutbar would likely come along wanting to be senator from Minnesota and would unseat me. But I looked at it this way--gain office, coast for 6 years, then RETIRE. Do you realize that ex-senators receive these huge pensions for life? Or at least I think that's the case.
All I need to do is move to Minnesota, start law school and win election to the senate then I have a guarenteed income for life.....what a dream.
