New Dean at Minnesota:

It's David Wippman, now a vice provost at Cornell. It's an outstanding choice, and a very good sign for the future of the law school.

I always chuckle when someone leaves the Midwest (or any other place not in New England), spends 10 years in Ivy League schools, another 25 years conquering New York or Washington, then in his mid-50s returns triumphantly to his home state where he is installed high in state government or public academia. There is always someone like Mondale to say at his swearing in: "Let's not forget, he's a son of Minnesota."

He basks in his glory for another 10 years then goes out to pasture.

I will not disagree with you that Minnesota is parochial. But from my experience, it's just a little more open about its parochialism than the east coast and no worse than anywhere else.
