Posted on 12/18/14 at 08:17 am in response to 45th parallel: Markers make note of this Minneapolis distinction

Nice work, and an informative read..

What I find interesting is that I was up and down the coast of Croatia last summer, including crossing the 45th line twice.

After reading Andy's article, I was quite surprised to learn that I was that far north then, as I was among palm trees there!

Clearly, being on the edge of a large body of water (the Adriatic Sea) moderates the temperature quite a bit there and keeps the temperatures warm enough in the winter that palm trees...

100 percent of the women who have run for POTUS have lost, so there's that.

Thank you, Kevin.

Aitkin County had the highest rate of people living on welfare among all Minnesota counties.

White, rural, Aitkin County.

"For all the Republican criticism, the U.S. economic recovery has been one of the strongest in the world, a fact that goes strangely unmentioned."

The Democrats did not use the message of the improved economy uner President Obama AT ALL.

Very frustrating.

There was also a HUGE decline in the youth vote in yesterday's election:...

Another in a long line of Mr. Swift's uncanny election predictions.

Why, I wonder, hasn't President Romney hired this intellectual powerhouse to work as a White House strategist?

His motivations were grand, and as soon as he got his child inside the house, his child was no longer in danger.

Then he stupidly picked up his gun instead of the phone, and endangered public safety.

No excuses for doing that at all.
