    The Eyes of JonBenet Ramsey - America eats its young.

    THE PICTURES OF JonBenet Ramsey that have filled television screens and tabloid covers since her murder--hundreds of them, it seems, every one in some sense the same image--are as resonant as they are grotesque; and they are grotesque beyond words. ...

    The Puck Doesn't Stop Here - Hockey in St. Paul: the other major league boondoggle.

    We all knew St. Paul Mayor Norm Coleman was slick, but in convincing local residents and a gullible media to take seriously the possibility that a pro hockey team will come to the St. Paul Civic Center, Hizzoner has outdone himself. For weeks now, C...

    Talk of the Town

    "I READ SOMETHING not long ago about the character of Minnesotans," recalls Two Cities editor Kevin Fenton, "that said our greatest fault was our humility. I don't agree--I think we're arrogant about being second best. Our real fault is that we don'...

    The Lore of the Pines - Politics, myth, and money in Minnesota's dwindling north woods.

    The bonfire is gone, covered by two feet of new snow. There are no tracks except for the ones made by your snowshoes, intricate figure-eight patterns laid down with a rhythmic crunch. After a few hundred feet on the forest road you turn right, down ...

    Innocent Abroad

    IF BILL CLINTON has sailed into his second term with a 62 percent approval rating, part of the reason may be the disturbing fact that a majority of Americans no longer get their news from a daily paper, but rather from TV--and from local TV news at ...

    Helmers and Lensers

    PEOPLE WORRY THAT America is degenerating into a country of slavering morons, but I'm optimistic--primarily because for all its ignorance, America is also a nation of know-it-alls. We like to be seen as experts, and fresh evidence of this can be foun...

    Talking Political Blues

    IRIS DEMENT SINGS from the stage of the Fine Line with a curl to her lips, tearing off choppy guitar chords and rhymed social critique. "We got CEO's makin' 200 times the workers' pay," she snarls, "but they'll fight like hell against raisin' the min...

    Local Traffic: Slow & Go

    It pains me to say it, but many of my notes on Minnesota music in 1996 look like a report on an economic recession, not a rock & roll scene. People complained a lot last year (myself included); morale was lower; bands broke up for no reason other tha...
