Does this ranking explain why there is a Minnesota model for the treatment of addictions?

Why isn't Duluth/Superior included in the Minnesota MSA's?

To Mr. Swift:
Which economist has the current situation figured out?

Thanks to Mr. Beyer for some suggestions for summer reading.

The Wolves are pathetic. Who cares who they pick?

Hey Brit,

Posted on 04/12/14 at 09:24 am in response to Language use and misuse: 'Evolving' is one thing ...

My recollection of the origin of this smug and tiresome phrase was that it came from newcomers to Minnesota and was meant ironically to describe shallow, insincere, politeness toward new residents.

It then was taken seriously and took on an opposite meaning.

Is there any truth to my recollection?
