Are things THAT bad at the state Capitol?

Eh? knows that Minnesota faces a budget deficit, but are things really that bad?

The state flag flying outside of the Capitol in St. Paul on Tuesday was upside down. A flag flown upside down can be interpreted as a sign of distress.

Northland jack of all trades Jeff Papas, while visiting the Capitol, snapped a photo and brought it to the attention of the Eh? desk.

While things might not exactly be golden in the Minnesota Legislature, we think it’s more likely an oversight than a cry for help.
