Posted on 01/15/13 at 05:30 pm in response to Minnesotan Eugenie Anderson blazed trail for female diplomats

I've not seen much of Eugenie Anderson's story told outside the Red Wing area. (I think she was once an "Almanac" trivia question.)

What a fascinating life she lived. A front-row seat to some of the most remarkable moments in U.S. and Minnesota political history. Cold War-era ambassadorships to both an ally and a nation behind the Iron Curtain.

Thanks for sharing stories like hers. This is one of many reasons I appreciate MinnPost.

Thanks for sharing, David. I also thought Mr. Anfinson's editorial was one of the best.

Another good piece comes at it from a different, and revealing, perspective. A friend posted this on her FB page; your readers may take interest, too. (My apologies if it has already been shared via MinnPost.) It is from Steve Murphy, a former legislator from Red Wing and was published in the RW Republican Eagle. He writes:

"I would like to confess that when I voted for the law...

At first glance, I was inclined to say that Mike Osskopp ought to look into the faces of the Minnesota families whose tragedies inspired Sen. Klobuchar to advocate effectively for safer laws governing pool safety and items that come with consumer goods geared toward children and tell them these laws are "crap." On second thought, however, they deserve so much better than the callous indifference with which he views the horrific events that cost them their precious children. He, on the other...

Mrs. Obama has been a solid advocate for military families. It's great to have her visit Minnesota!

there's Sunday School? At church?

Creepy. It will be interesting to see what rationale is offered.

Thanks, Joe Kimball and MinnPost. I'd somehow missed this one.

What a loss. Mr. O'Neil was truly a St. Paul original.

The place had a sense of permanence. I was in Nakashian-O'Neil twice this season for gift ornaments (the latter visit on Dec. 17) and saw him both times. Mr. O'Neil hadn't changed much from years gone by when my mother brought us there for our ornaments. We were always treated as well as those who pulled up in limos for theirs!

Thanks to...

As I got to the end of the last three paragraphs, I realized I was crying. This story was masterfully reported and written. I hope the writer wins a Pulitzer; he surely has earned it.

The NHL has also earned every bit of the disdain that comes its way. I will never drive by the X again without thinking of the NHL's greed and barbaric disregard for humans, especially those who have outlived their usefulness to the bottom line.

It's all about him.

Sonny and Cher's "The Beat Goes On" was one of the first tunes I downloaded. "The grocery store's the super-mart, uh-haaaaa." Makes me want to snap my fingers and swing my hips!
