Kim Crockett offered a┬ácounterpoint to a recent Star Tribune editorial that claims there is “no public pension crisis in Minnesota.” Crockett writes, “The soothing lullaby sung by the trio of pension administrators and union representatives amid an upturn in the stock market is welcome music to the untrained ear.

Here’s a sample: “We at the Minnesota Free Market Institute agree that Minnesota is not California (and we agree that boomers have not saved enough to retire). If California is Lindsay Lohan, Minnesota is Miley Cyrus.The state has been pretty good up to this point, but we are poised to go off the deep end if we do not change our ways.”
