5/14 MN Reads: "Stassen Again" by Steve Werle
Minnesota author (and former Duluthian) Steve Werle talks about the desk that moved him to investigate the life of former Minnesota Governor Harold Stassen.
And what he found was a man much more complex - and admirable - than the caricature "tilting at voting booths in an unending quest to capture the presidency or newspaper headlines."

"I know I've had an impact, that some things I've done have really counted for world peace, for the passion of the individual. I sometimes wish people would ask not how many times I've run a political campaign but how many times I've been right on the issues." ~ Harold Stassen
