    Letters to the Editor

    The Replacements' Thriller I can remember it as if it were yesterday. Static Taxi was driving down 26th Street after band practice and stopped at the light on Chicago Avenue. KQ was on the car radio and suddenly the new Replacements single, "I'll...

    Dead Meat - Rushford turkey farmer Eric Hoiland lost everything in the floods

    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...

    Driving a Soft Bargain - Strib drivers complain that union rolled over

    Teamsters Local 638, representing more than 100 drivers of those big green Star Tribune trucks, gave the thumbs-up last week to a four-year contract only a penny-pinching corporation's mother could love. Some veteran drivers took exception when the...

    The Full MOA - Think Black Friday was bad? Try living at the Mall of America for a whole week

    For many Twin Cities residents, the Mall of America means one thing: Your out-of-town friends are visiting and want to see the cities' most obvious landmark. Our much-maligned mega-mall represents a highly evolved, if slightly mutated, specimen o...

    Savage Love

    I'm a single gay male in my late 20s. I've met a guy I really like. We chat all the time and we're attracted to each other. We haven't yet been sexually active with each other, but we're planning to get naked and sweaty (and break out the ropes and ...

    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, ...

    C.J. scolded by editor after mocking conjoined twins in gossip column

    I don't mean to pile on. We've recently written several poisoned-penned posts about Star Tribune gossip columnist C.J. Jonathan Kaminsky called her out for a host of sins before giving her a backhanded compliment for writing a nice piece on departi...

    Madia wins!

    After hours of votes and repeat votes and what many feared would be another democratic stalemate, Iraq war veteran and lawyer Ashwin Madia became the endorsed DFL candidate for the 3rd Congressional District Saturday evening. He will face conservativ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
