Posted on 09/05/14 at 06:46 pm in response to After playoff exit, what's next for the Lynx?

The Phoenix series surely proved the quality of basketball in the WNBA. Any basketball junkie was fully satisfied with the quality of play, the extraordinary strategy and execution of plays and the skills exhibited. The athleticism of both teams was really exciting. Phoenix was awesome. Griner was amazing in game three. Tough, smart, but mostly just an overwhelming basketball player, she became the mountain too high to climb. But no excuses, the Lynx were great, but Phoenix was even...

This new mayor is paying attention to the right issues. Effective police function is perhaps the most significant environmental aspect of good community living. We are at the very edge of comfortable in Minneapolis right now, and thoughtful attention to police function for our community must be a top priority, and the Mayor has it right. Keep a news view of this issue so it doesn't go away before we get it right.

I admit that I have benefited from the lack of coverage of the Lynx for many years. The ticket prices are reasonable, seating is always good, and you can find a parking space within a short walk. If the media were more aggressive in coverage, if reporters really talked about athleticism, if the vibes at a game were accurately reported, the Lynx games would be oversold, and all of those folks now used to the commonality of losing would pack the Lynx games and find Nirvana.

Bachman's should receive the thanks of all of us for informing customers of the opportunity to help save the bees! Talk to a bee keeper about the use of neonicotinoids and you quickly realize it is a monster challenge to our bees. This important action by such a respected local business is a great way to help, but we all have to join in this effort to stop the use of this insidious poison.

You have been blowing the horn of Adelman for a long time. Your main complaint about DWill was that he was not able to understand and play the system that Adelman was so noted for as a coach. I think you should rethink your criticism, both of the coach, and DWill. Perhaps you noted his play for Sacramento. He must be smart enough to be able to get their system OK. Last night, after only a short time with the Kings, he scored 31, got 5 steals and they beat a lot better team than those...

I suspect that the people who can and are interested will conceal and carry to the event, even though their demonstration is called off. I also suspect that they will not learn how to spell before the event. Shouldn't we all be happy that they will be there to protect us from the bad men with guns?

I suspect that the financial industry is ruing the agreement that they made with Pawlenty to be their bagman! They really did not get much of a bargain in their effort to curry favor with the regulators, and now with the return of Obama, noone will listen to his political misinformation and their money has been wasted.

Posted on 11/07/12 at 12:58 pm in response to Mayor Rybak joins his mother in a crowd-surf after Obama win

I suspect it is about time for the Mayor to move his extensive knowledge, judgment and skills to a larger arena. Would anyone be surprised if he is given a large role in the next Obama administration? He has been a great Mayor for Minneapolis, an ardent supporter of the Obama administration, and a very skilled advocate for the interests of the middle class and urban residents. The surfing is just one of many abilities, but shows how he is able to take a bit of risk to have some fun....

Rather than dredging up the Republican leadership for more deserved condemnation, it would seem appropriate to acknowledge the efforts of the DFL, and particularly Thissen. So many good candidates does not happen without a lot of ground work to find them, prepare them and support them during the campaign. We have been blessed by our party leadership, and I suspect will find their efforts in this legislative year to be as sublime!

It is so disappointing that the Board of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra has chosen to lock out the musicians rather than continuing to negotiate in good faith. This must be some kind of scorched earth policy the board and its lawyers feel will bring the players to their knees begging for something. I am a very disgusted patron, and would hope the people who decided this strategy will be replaced by someone who knows the meaning of good faith in negotiations. Lock out is a crude anti-...
