Just down the street from where my friend, the editor of a local Minneapolis online magazine, lives.

Of course I forwarded it on to him and told him to be careful.

Between Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN had some seriously crooked burgs for a while.

I know his grand daughter. I drive by here every weekday. The fireplug is stil damaged where his car hit it. He was part of Jay Near Vs MN (freedom of press SCOTUS case), but a decision early on was that he should not attach his name to the case.
