The final list was compiled from those nominations by a committee at Prairie Business. 3M Headquarters: Brookings, S.D. (plant); St. Paul (corporate) Employees: 91,000 nationwide, 1,120 Brookings

For both the skeptics and the supporters have important messages; and if they'd only start talking to rather than past each other—while banning the word "racism" from the conversation—something good might actually result.
Originally, it was a law to honor religious observance. Now, it's pure protectionism, guarding some lucky businesses against competition. And for Minnesota's law barring Sunday liquor sales, that's no longer reason enough.
