    Publish or Perish

    TIMOTHY YOON LIKES the word community. When the 25-year-old Detroit native talks about the queer scene in the Twin Cities, he leans forward earnestly, and he uses phrases like "building bridges," with great comfort. It's this impulse toward connect...

    Film for Art's Sake

    The first film review ever printed in Sweet Potato proved uncharacteristic of the paper's critical rigor. Defending The Blues Brothers in July 1980 (in a column directly preceding a two-page color ad for the movie), then-associate editor Randy Ander...

    The Woodchopper's Bawl

    "Like loggers," wrote arts editor Patricia Ohmans in 1993, "City Pages arts writers spend a great deal of time chopping down trees and very little time surveying the forest." When Ohmans made this assessment in her report on "The State of the Arts,"...

    Bigger Than Bite-Size

    When confronted by 20 years' worth of City Pages news stories, it's striking how difficult so many of them are to excerpt. The best of these articles are so meticulously researched and organically reasoned that their "nut graphs"--the collection of ...

    Reflections

    Monika Bauerlein (Monika Bauerlein has been managing editor of City Pages since 1990.) What I know so far: That it's possible to do what you love and love what you do. That the bad guys don't always win. That sometimes they do. That the whole is g...

    Out of Characters

    In the parlance of journalism, feature is a catch-all for any longish story that doesn't necessarily have a time peg. At City Pages features are a place where characters are drawn, from Jesse the Body to Bear in the Woods Bly to Saint Mary Jo to the...

    The Ink Tank

    The trusty, theoretically unopinionated American Heritage Dictionary defines opinion as: "A belief or conclusion held with confidence but not substantiated by positive knowledge or proof." Which works equally well as a high-falutin' description of b...

    Bio Feedback

    Here's one of the better-kept little secrets of the newspaper business: Journalists love letters. Every week after we finally shove the paper out the door, we wait. We check our voice mail. Scan our e-mail. Slink past the reception desk to see if w...

    Fair Is Fair - Ruminations on toddlers and sharing

    Sharing is hard. I don't know a toddler who ever truly did a very good job of it. It goes against their very nature. And lately I've begun to wonder why we even try to teach it at that age. Wouldn't it make more sense to just get through the day pe...

    An Ex by Any Other Name

    I grew up reading Ann Landers and Dear Abby. I still read them, when I buy the paper, which isn't often, as I get most of my news online. When I do peruse their advice, often it's to make fun. I'm a liberal, a feminist, and I disagree frequently wi...
