I stopped by Groth Music in Bloomington yesterday to help a new student find a harp. They sell Support the MN Orchestra Musicians buttons! And lawn signs, and T-shirts. The funds raised go exclusively to the orchestra members.
But my conspicuous green button almost caused me problems at the polls today.
“Is that a political button?” the man asked pointedly as I stepped inside City Hall.
“Support the Musicians,” I replied innocently, moving my scarf so he could see the full text.
“Oh,” he subsided, and gave me direction to the correct table.
Anyone else have an adventure at the polls?
