Instead of going by stats, here are some favorites of mine:
The Iron Range: Join or Die
One ongoing project of mine is to seek strength in Iron Range cities, schools and institutions through consolidation and cooperation. This post (along with my rejiggered Ben Franklin cartoon) is a call to arms.
North vs. South
Iron Rangers think Duluth is "the South." We can't let Johnny Reb win, after all these years of being dead ... and geographically distant. Remember Stonewall Jackson's strained metaphor!
What's With the Guy in the Green Shirt?
Yours truly wanders, like a hobo, onto the floor of the Minnesota State House of Representatives.
Bob Dylan Portable Toilet Flap Leads to Desperate Plea
You've got all you need in the headline.
'Overburden' wins Northeastern Minnesota Book Award
You can look at the post, sure, or you can buy the book. I'd prefer Door #2, frankly.
Ironworld becomes Minnesota Discovery Center
And who would have thought this was a bad idea?
The Nine Circles of Hell (you know, for fun)
Sometimes I see things on the internet and just have the super fun time. Hell can be funny, if you try.
There's lots more in the archives to look at. You won't see too much after August 2009, but I'll be resuming blogging in 2010, ideally with an eye toward better blended content with a little less prattle about bloated economic development schemes.
