To Whom It May Concern:

How many Senators does the United States currently have? 50? You'd hope so, but no.

Luckily for New York, they got one on Friday. So, we're up to 48.
Delaware didn't wait that long, and replaced Biden promptly. 49 ...

Minnesota can't figure out what the hell it's doing. We not only don't have a Senator, we are expecting to wait a few more weeks, if not a couple more months before discovering who's getting the other chair in the Capitol. I wish our state's constitution allowed for the Gov. to appoint a temporary person. Maybe Franken & Coleman can take turns voting? Maybe T-Paw can just shake a Magic 8 ball?

The U.S. currently has 99 senators, now that New York's governor finally appointed Hillary's replacement. MN is the last to the table, it seems. I bet Senator Klobuchar would definitely like to have a colleague to kvetch with! I heard over the weekend that there was a movement afoot in the U.S. Senate to seat Franken now and not wait for the court decision. Talk about confidence....(smile)
