Posted on 01/16/15 at 12:18 pm in response to Chipotle: There is no pork shortage

Wanda, I am speaking as a person who worked in marketing and advertising for about 25 years. I've since transitioned to a new career, but things haven't changed that much since my time. Your assertion that Chipotle wants consumers to fear their food strikes me as utter nonsense. You don't find many marketers successfully managing campaigns that are based on fear, especially if its premise is untrue, as you claim. I think its much more likely that Chipotle is responding to a genuine...

This is great. Such a simple idea, and quite do-able. A complete culture shift. Thank you so much for adding your ideas to this important discussion.

Happy to pay a gas tax, if it means we can have infrastructure improvement. I certainly don't want a repeat of the bridge collapse. In fact, I'd be happy to pay an additional "don't be stupid, this contributes to climate change and therefore we need a stiff penalty to change people's behavior" tax, that might finally help my family work out other transportation options: bike, carpooling, walking.

Happy to Pay for a Better Minnesota. I still have that lawn sign in my garage. And...

Watch Lindsey's videos which are linked to in this article. The remarks themselves, taken out of context - "damn!! you're beautiful" or my favorite "smile!!" - could be interpreted in an innocent fashion. But they are often accompanied by standing too close, leering looks and other inappropriate behavior. Besides, why would any man think that they have the right to make comments like this to a perfect stranger? And, most of these men admit that they wouldn't say anything if the woman...

Kathleen, thank you for having the courage to tell your story, and thank you Sarah for finding Kathleen and giving her such a respectful hearing. I don't think you'll ever know the amount of comfort that this gives families with similar challenges. So much more is possible (even hope, and happiness) when you know you're not alone.

Beth, this is fantastic. So beautiful and optimistic. thank you for writing about it. Made my day.


Is this the debut article to the mental health and addiction beat? I hope I haven't missed any posted earlier. Anonymity is a complicated issue in the recovery community and I think you did a nice job of exploring the many issues surrounding it. I look forward to your future articles, Sarah.

Yay! Looking forward to reading it.

Are you talking about the West Bank area of the University of Minnesota? While its true that Breakfast at Mama's and the friendly hippie bank are gone, its full of beautiful lively bustling East African businesses, as well as the Cedar Cultural Center, Mapps Coffee and Midwest Mountaineering.
