Posted on 07/08/14 at 05:10 pm in response to For a speedy light rail trip, get off before downtown Minneapolis

Minor point. My post was really a reference to David Markle's post on streets.mn.

But, yes, I suppose I'm an outlier for considering traveling almost the full distance the Green Line operates. But that's just because that's where I was and that's where I needed to go.

The July 4th game, by the way, wasn't THAT easy of a decision. How was I to know that the unpatriotic businesses of Minneapolis were OPEN on July 4th, so everyone was charging weekday rates! Why do you hate...

I got to the part where the roster is "pretty well set" and I figured, "Really, what's even the point of playing another season?"

THIS is a great piece of work.

And all of this is happening as the team increases ticket prices as much as 20 percent.

Fantastic.

I, too, am in the lazy chopper club and it's not unusual for me to take four or five passes over the leaves. I have a LOT of leaves and maybe there are too many finely chopped leaves, but I'm less concerned about the grass and more interested in the soil; I figure the grass can take care of itself but ultimately it's happier in decent soil. I notice the soil in the woods is pretty good soil.

I REALLY needed Britt to tell me everything is going to be alright. I REALLY needed that today.

Goodbye, world!

The Woodbury flags are at a Veterans Memorial. And they aren't at City Centre. They're at City Hall. City Centre is down Radio drive about 1/4 mile and on the other side of the street.

Shown above playing is a player who didn't play. :*) You can't fool me!

Great piece as always. It's enough to help get me through winter....sitting here...looking at the beautiful snow... and dreaming about a day -- not far off -- in which a full squad hits the outside shots...and the inside game flourishes.

It seems so close. and yet...

Posted on 02/11/13 at 10:17 am in response to Karma's knife-twist: I have to take freshman comp

Let me see if I have this right: It took a month -- a month? -- for the underappreciated bureaucrats to make this decision? How long does it take them for ones that actually involve thinking?

Posted on 02/08/13 at 03:05 pm in response to Amy Koch media saga: Who did what and when

I'm sorry, I'm missing the part of "The Koch Story" that is false. Is Kessler talking about her insistence that it was a power play or is he talking about the timetable and who talked to whom? Because if it's the latter, I haven't seen anyone pointing out where the timetable is wrong.
