Dayton is going to say that he will approve e-pull tabs to fund the orchestra...wait, we tried that already. Dayton is going to pass a tax on cigarettes and tax the wealthy to fund the orchestra. We all know it is the wealthy and smokers who go to their shows.

With so many billionairs in Minnesota there must be some way for them to assist an asset of our state such as this orchestra. I would not expect them to carry the cost entirely, just bolster its flagging revenues.

I can hardly wait to see what this brain trust comes up with. The idea will sound great and three weeks from now they will both be running away from their proposed solution. Ever hear the phrase that no head is better than two?

They could painlessly get the MN taxpayer to foot this bill by implementing a new tax on 2nd hand smokers.

well hopefully they figure it out before the gala on Sat., there are going to be a lot on angry protesters outside the venue. I would hate to have my name on the website/signs as a sponsor of this mess.

Given that the Gala is on FRIDAY, they had better sort it out sooner than Saturday . . .

A joint in person statement and the best we get are recycled comments which have been in the public sphere for months. Hoping for more. While it's good the board and management have returned to mediation, can't these elected leaders be more effective then just public complaints a year into the disaster?

Let's see, with the completion of the new cultural palace i.e. Orchestra Hall downtown, management will soon end the strike. They don't want their million dollar renovation to sit empty and now they can make money again. I've said from the beginning the strike will be over when the hall was finished it's remodeling. Perhaps I'm prescient?
