    Critical Mass Cyclist Found Not Guilty

    It took a jury all of 10 minutes to determine that the charges against Critical Mass cyclist Gus Ganley (assault on an officer, obstruction of legal process, and fleeing an officer) amounted to maggot-ridden pigshit: "not guilty" on all counts.During...

    Pothole of the day: Discipline and punish

    True genius is measured in both depth and breadth. The great works -- Melville's Moby Dick, Joyce's Ulysses, Flair-Steamboat from Clash of the Champions 6 -- impress not just with length, but the fullness and richness of experience. So it was with t...

    Breakfast of Champions 4/14: Rappers, pirate and otherwise

    Yesterday I searched eMusic for a copy of Motorhead's song "Ace of Spades." If you have to ask why, you have likely never a) played poker or b) heard Motorhead. The quest was in vain. Rather than the chord-crunching, card-table-vibrating original, ...

    VP Pawlenty Meter: McCain "made up his mind a year ago" to pick T-Paw

    When last we surveyed the crowded field of VP wannabes, the nomination seemed to be slipping away from T-Paw. After all, McCain was saying there were as many as 20 potential running mates on his mind, and Condi Rice was loudly squawking that she want...

    On a blustery November morning, Eric Hoiland drives his combine down a hillside along the banks of the Root River. The 38-year-old farmer wears mud-caked jeans and a faded denim jacket. Tufts of red hair peek out from under a charcoal winter hat. Hi...
