Greg, the 1st amendment guarantees that the GOVERNMENT will not interfere with free speech. Says nothing about corporations ... which, if you were fully aware, do have complete freedom to restrict free speech.

Disney and Hearst (co-owners of A&E) made a business decision wrt Phil Robertson. Given Disney's recent history re: gay rights, I am not surprised that they would continue to be extra-sensitive to the issue.

As for Mr. Robertson, he did not have his freedom to speak...

According to this link "Steele County gained its world-wide Butter Capitol reputation after Owatonna Manufacturing Company invented the mechanized butter churn in 1893, revolutionizing the dairy industry."

I've read references elsewhere, too...

Farnsworth says "... we are going to leave them a state that provides less opportunity than the Minnesota I grew up in."

Then, why the heck does Farnsworth run as a candidate for the party (MNGOP) intent on gutting public education? Or has Farnsworth forgotten just how his education was funded all those "many" years ago?

Decades before Patch, there were a slew of local newspapers. I used to deliver one: The Richfield News. But, even in the '60s, the economics for local papers was difficult. Eventually, Sun Newspapers bought many of the once-independent local journals but even consolidation (and content syndication) didn't offer an attractive enough platform for advertisers who found better value advertising in the larger daily newspapers, and readers whose interests now extended far beyond once-local borders...

I would much rather the state support the arts (@ $6 per capita) over supporting stadiums (@ $66 per capita). Seems to be much more value to found, overall, anyway, in the arts.

Brian, note that the #5 name says "Minneapolis" but ST. PAUL's Science Museum of Minnesota is highlighted in the caption. We just don't toot our horns that much on the east side of the river. Less insecure with our stodgy old nerdiness?

I, too, have never received my sheeps' skin nor, as a well-meaning acquaintance once told me three decades ago, have I "completed a discipline." Three schools; no degree. Part of me, like you, was to benefit from a job opportunity I couldn't turn down doing something I really loved doing; another part of me -- maybe, my larger concern -- did not find the classroom to be as instructive as was the "real world." I was more more interested in "paying my dues" than I was "paying my tuition." lol...

Mayor Coleman doesn't have any jurisdiction over Mystic Lake roads. And Kenny's not performing in St. Paul.
