it's dollars to doughnuts that our state fair is the best state fair in our state*

This weekend my family visited the Minnesota State Fair, where my brother was broadcasting live video over amateur radio from a weather balloon that they had tethered over the University of Minnesota building. We consumed massive quantities of food, all of which was fried and/or on-a-stick, fought our way through massive crowds, probably swelled by the absurdly-chilly-for-August weather, and boggled at the spectacle all day long, and still managed to miss, for instance, that there were vets performing surgeries on pets live somewhere on the premises. The Minnesota State Fair is terrifying. If you get a chance, you should go.

* Warning: do not, I repeat, do NOT see the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical State Fair, even if you know some or all of the people who are performing it. The titular song is a vicious earworm that will haunt you for decades. It is not worth it.
