    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, ...

    Homewrecker - Scott Sennes promised to build dream homes for his clients, but instead walked away with their money

    In the spring of 2005, Michael Birdman and his wife, Marissa Gautsch, were looking to remodel their Edina home. The couple had purchased the one-story, 1,400-square-foot, Cape Cod-style home three years earlier. They liked the inner-ring suburban ne...

    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 ...

    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.
