Posted on 12/18/14 at 09:03 am in response to 45th parallel: Markers make note of this Minneapolis distinction

Weird, I was just wondering where the 45th parallel ran through these parts. Thanks, Andy!

Great column; I look forward to the next two.

I say "creek."

I like that you use "pop" like a true Minnesotan.

Great way to give us a little tour of Budapest while keeping it relevant to Mpls/St. Paul. If the TC could become sister cities to Budapest, we'd be the quadruplet sister cities.

I've always wanted one of those dinky signs! I've never figured out which city department to contact about acquiring an old unused one.

Love that you provided that soundtrack to play while reading that paragraph. It was perfect.

Posted on 07/08/13 at 02:17 pm in response to Clapping seems to be contagious in audiences, study finds

There used to be a thing called a "claque," which was a group of paid applauders. Or they'd laugh or weep or cheer or whatever was called for. That would prompt the real audience members to follow suit. I've always thought that would be a great career; wish claqueurs would come back in style.

Love that floor mosaic. Isn't there a big hanging airplane at the airport? That's art. (There's probably a guy named Art who works there; he is also Airport Art.)

Another great tour; thanks, Andy.

Love that 21st and 23rd street aren't there at all. If I'm not mistaken, the addresses on those long blocks do shift over to 21xx and 23xx in the middle of the block, where 21st and 23rd would be.

Nice piece, great story, and very cool that this atricle is in Ojibwe as well. I did initially have a small beef with "foreign" being in quotes in the lede, thinking Hey, it is straight up a foreign language! But maybe English is the foreign language :)
