My mother’s family is from this area. Great, honest, hard working people. Half of them work at the Mayo clinic. They are Minnesota Nice... Politically defective gene in the family though... 90% leftists. If NPR or PBS says it,, it is gospel.
My dad was a subscriber. When he got dementia I eventually stopped paying for it. He lost interest. They never stopped sending it. When he went into the Alzheimers unit 500 miles away, his mail was sent to me so I can handle his affairs. It was forwarded to me. I never paid, they kept sending it. He passed , It kept coming. Then they started sending me issues, unsolicited, unpaid for. So I was getting two copies per month... Eventually They stopped. After years went by.
