Minnesota has a lot to offer. I lived in Kentucky for about 20 years, and feel that there are major differences in the cost of living in the states, granted, for good reason, but the one thing I can't wrap my head around is why I used to be able to get my license in Kentucky on the same day I went it for it?

I'm not kidding. I went into my local courthouse and they took three pictures. They even let me choose which picture I wanted on my license.  About 5 minutes later, my permanent license was printed right there in the house, and I walked out with it the same day.

That has NEVER happened here in Minnesota; and if anyone can figure this stuff out, I would think it would be hardworking Minnesotans.


That being said, it doesn't seem to be as bad as it used to be. I believe the last time I replaced my license I had it within a couple of weeks, but I still don't understand; why the pile-up? I also have a huge problem with why our state makes people wait so long when they are applying for state assistance with insurance. My God! I have a friend that sent their paperwork in over a month ago, and it's still not processed. The delays cause such major problems to people who really need the help that I really don't understand the hold up. Do we not have someone entering information every day? Is it a worker shortage?

People need these services, so why on earth we don't have things on a priority basis eludes me.
