"Many, if not more billionaires and unions who favor the left" - oh really? Can you provide numbers? And there are "many, if not more" corporations than unions - who do they give to, now that they are legally human?

Posted on 04/25/14 at 07:35 pm in response to From nixing ERA to opposing equal pay, Phyllis Schlafly's still at it

She was able to put herself through Washington University while working fulltime - this was during WWII, so a well-paying job in a factory (I believe) was available because there were no men. Had she tried to do this five years before or five years after, she wouldn't have been able to do this. She got a masters at Harvard and was able to do so because - again - the men were all at war and the program needed students. This is not to say that she wasn't qualified and doesn't diminish her...

For your thoughtful coverage throughout. And for your continuing spotlight on all that is going on - I know so much more about the many fantastic arts offerings in Minnesota now.

And Minnpost (incl. Pamela Espeland) for your even-handed and responsible coverage of this unprecedented situation. I am only one of many who became sustainers because of your work.

For the same number of people is not dealing with the issue of density. Teardowns and increasing density are both housing issues, but they are not the same issue.

Where some well-connected people have become billionaires (and are busy sending their money outside the country), while meanwhile pensions and job opportunities are tanking.

We certainly wouldn't want that for the US, would we? Oh wait - that's our problem too!!

I would be willing to bet that the author, coming from the Soviet Union, was fairly well-educated. If so, in spite of the possible language barrier), he already had more of an advantage than many citizens, for whom...

“It had been my good fortune,” he reflected later in his book, “Catalogue Raisonne As Memoir,” “to have landed in a state, namely, Minnesota, in which the art I practice is widely viewed as an essential aspect of life, not merely an ornament or an embellishment.”

that the MOA needs to be MORE accessible, not less. I'm sure they are short-staffed, and the difficulties aren't the fault of the frontline staff. How about getting administrators and Board members to staff the ticket desk so that they can have some face-to-face time with their customers?

And generally - what a great lineup of interesting artistic events going on - kudos to the MIA for putting a local face on a national interest and to smaller museums (which I need to visit more)...

Is the Richard Davis who said, above:

Davis isn’t too worried, pointing out that Minnesota is home to 19 Fortune 500 companies. “Based on the history we have in this community of philanthropic and sponsorship support, we expect we will have very high standards and probably a very high number,” he said.

the same Richard Davis who said that the donor base was tapped out and that the MN Orchestra was too expensive???

They are so much bigger (percentage-wise) for those who think that their investments entail "real work" (like stashing money outside the US) and thus should be taxed at a much lower rate than those schlubs who actually work for a living. The schlubs are subsidizing the 1%.
