    Alleged Public Masturbator Charged with Indecent Exposure

    U of M police charged a Minneapolis man yesterday with two counts of indecent exposure. In two separate occasions last week, a pair of U of M coeds claimed a middle-aged man sat next to them in the U's Walter Library and began masturbating. Police ...

    POTD: this is dedicated to Mayor Rybak

    Panic has set in at City Hall. Our relentless (i.e. highly sporadic and rather lackluster) expose on the distressed streets of Minneapolis finally elicited a response yesterday from the city's communications department. Here's the rather tepid acknow...

    Breakfast of Champions 4/11

    During the limited onstage banter coming from Tapes 'n Tapes last night, there were references to -- what? Sports? Singer Josh Grier inquired about the state of the Minnesota Wild, declaring to the all-ages crows that "we need a championship in this ...

    The Real Scoop: Strib Columnist C.J. doesn't know how to use spellcheck?

    It's pretty funny considering the lackluster news value of the actual "scoop" itself. The debate: Who was first to publish that WCCO meteorologist Paul Douglas' bio was taken off the station's website? from Paul Schmelzer to CJ 4/7/20...

    Breakfast of Champions 4/10: That's the breaks

    Talking to Marc Bamuthi Joseph, you can feel his sincere passion for art, community engagement and micro-politics. When I say "micro-politics," I mean it in the sense of personal empowerment and liberation. That can take place on an individual leve...

    Look at that pretty housing map

    Yikes. I suppose we can be glad that we aren't Detroit, or one of a number of California or Florida cities. But this is still a cavalcade of lost equity.

    POTD: Let's hear it for the 651

    I've discovered one absolute truth during the last two weeks of (admittedly sporadic) pothole-ology: Minneapolis has a lot more craters in its streets than St. Paul. My efforts to find suitably impressive potholes in the 651 have largely been unsucce...

    Covering Her Beat

    C.J. is well known for her prickly--some might say tacky, others might say merely annoying--on-the-clock behavior. I tend to think of her as the Sid Hartman of local TV news coverage: Been doing it forever, bullies people into talking, and is a tota...

    I am a powerful man in this town

    Yesterday. Today: I would like to say that this was me, David Brauer, a wheelbarrow and two shovels. But that would be untruthful, and I want to use my powers for good rather than evil. Commuters: you're welcome. Next, I would like the ramps at...

    Breakfast of Champions 4/8: Newspapers are dead (long live the newspaper)

    Everybody's talking about media layoffs lately. With good reason: the news has generally been bleak, the country's in a recession, and journalism is in a state of flux. Witness Eric Alterman's long piece on the fate of newspapers in this month's New ...

    Pothole of the day: 4/7

    Look at this fucking monster. When I drove my car toward it, I didn't anticipate a bump -- I anticipated a visit to Land of the Lost. Watch out for Sleestaks, Rick Marshall. We're going in! When the 46th Street ramps were closed until 2010, I was ...

    NYTimes "Blogging Kills" article misses key point: health insurance

    VP Pawlenty Meter: Condoleeza Rice says she wants the job

    Recently, T-Paw's frontrunner status seems to be slipping away. There was McCain's recent off-hand mention that he had at least 20 names on his not-so-short list. There's also been rumblings of making a devil's bargain with Mitt Romney, enough so tha...
