Forty minutes early for an appointment in St. Paul on Thursday, I was looking for a bagel. I parked near the Minnesota State Capitol thinking I could find one in the Capitol’s Rathskeller where lawmakers, lobbyists and staff members grab a bite to eat during the legislative session.

My detour to our lawmakers’ place of business was an eye-opener. Even when the Legislature is not in session, I learned, the Capitol is a happening place.
