Up next: What's with all these lakes we hear about?

Neal Karlen strikes again. In his effort to be the expert on all things Minnesotan for the New York Times, the local scribe has made his peeps look like rubes again--which maybe we are. (MNspeak has already called him out for exaggerating the "you betcha" factor--debatable.)

Hey, a gig's a gig. But Sunday's piece in the Travel section actually highlighted Karlen's true gift: pointing out the obvious. Want proof? The thrust of his piece is that Minneapolis has these things called skyways.
