Doesn’t sound like the rally was all that effective. ;)

North Minneapolis is a total Ghetto.

I know a former manager of Target that told me Target closed up their store out their because there was so much shop lifting.

The only thing I ever liked about Minneapolis is live music at the RedStone in Eden Prairie on Wednesday nights.

North Minneapolis has lots of Black civic leaders who for years have hollered about the problems there, yet no solutions are ever found. How about getting tough on gangs, getting people off welfare, promoting personal responsibilty, and doing something positive other than holding street-corner rallies for the press.

“Is it a diversity neighborhood?”

I think now they call those area empowerment zones. It is pronounced “empowament” zone.

That's how I like my irony ... without subtlety.

Chain stores have a problem when they're located in bad areas. They have increased expenses for security and shoplifting losses, but can't charge more in those areas to cover increased expenses, because that would be racist.

I wonder what a rally to support abstinence and modesty would have turned into? An ORGY?

The stores closing down in bad areas is part of Michelle Obama’s problem with “food deserts”. She complained that many inner city areas don’t have chain supermarkets with fresh produce, etc. And so too many people in the ghetto end up eating junk food from fast food places or a liquor store.

But Michelle never addressed the reasons why chain stores avoid certain areas. I would love to see this subject discussed. It could only help urban renewal if major businesses could locate in some of these areas and be profitable.

Don Samuels from Ward 5 is trying to overcome some of the cultural inertia in that district, but he's having a rough go of it. There are a lot of turf wars in the 'hood. Seems everyone wants to be the king rooster crowing, and it doesn't matter if he's standing on a sh_theap to do it.

I always kinda liked this guy, even though I was not a big twins fan:


I saw Killebrew hit the old scoreboard in old Memorial Stadium in Balto when I was a kid. That puppy was 500+ feet from home plate beyond the right-center field fence. Little opposite field poke, that’s all.

(Fran Tarkenton was another Minnesota guy well worth the price of admission. And—come to think of it—how far from Minneapolis is Michele Bachmann? She’s been known to hit ‘em further out than Harmon.)

If people there were interested in buying fresh produce, there would be fresh produce. If not from major supermarkets, then from little produce stands.

The problem is that preparing meals from fresh produce involves work, and many people there are allergic to work.

You and Kirby Puckett, but Redstone and Eden Prairie aren't in Minneapolis.

Well, there’s precedent for this. Once, Minnesota Democrats held a memorial service and a Nuremberg Rally broke out.

People whined and complained for years that there was no grocery store on the north side of Tulsa, OK. Well, they finally persuaded some schmo to open one, and within weeks it was robbed. From the comments made on the local paper’s website, some folks had a pool going to bet on the date this would happen.

And after all this, the poor manager said the store would probably close because they didn’t have enough business!
