  •  Worst of all - a slap in the face to Mark Dayton! (4+ / 0-)

    Dayton's Departments Stores spawned Target in the 60's and then ultimately Target outgrew the upscale department stores, which grew to include Hudson's and Marshall Fields.  Target spun them off and they were eventually acquired by Macy's.

    Democrat Mark Dayton, one of the heirs to the Dayton's fortune, was MN State Auditor before becoming a one-term US Senator (Amy Klobuchar now has his seat).  He is currently running for MN Governor in a 3-way primary to be held in August.

    This just sucks that the company his family built has turned its back on the Dayton family values!

    I am proud to live in a nation that hasn't practiced torture since 1/20/2009 - I just wish this alone didn't justify celebrating.
