Copper Hen Owner: "The dense population of Whittier makes it easy for her to find employees, and most live nearby and just bike or walk to work."

Lynhall owner says Lyndale will soon rival Eat Street. Wishes she had a bigger parking lot.

Effective today, @MinneapolisPD@twitter.com will become the 1st major department that we know of to prohibit this kind of fear-based training. Attending or instructing an external training that relates to use-of-force will now require approval from our Chief.

Yeah, but I bet there's an 'East Swastika Acres' still holding out.

Colorado city votes to drop the name 'Swastika Acres' from a subdivision. The neighborhood in the Denver suburb was named Swastika Acres decades before the symbol was adopted by the Nazis. apne.ws/gbk14Fn

Unconfirmed report: Minneapolis exceeds previous population estimate of "Too Many People Already."

RT @nickmagrino@twitter.com

looks like we'll get some 2018 city specific (so not the whole metro area) next month. from eyeballing it, I'd guess about a fourth to third of Twin Cities metro area's growth is in Minneapolis proper, so we're probably up to about 430,000?

Can the Strib editorial board feel shame? I hope so, because their embarrassing attack on @IlhanMN@twitter.com has forced the Wedge LIVE editorial board to divert our focus from neighborhood news to Donald Trump for the first time.

Reducing this to "both sides" is embarrassing.

Minneapolis is planning to devote 35' of a 68' wide bridge deck on 10th Ave SE to walking and biking uses, setting a pretty high bar for prioritizing vulnerable users.

I want to emphasize this is more a reflection on St Paul than Jimmy John.

I suspect one of the 13 Jimmy John's sandwich sections I consumed in St Paul last week was contaminated with the plague, or similar disease. Thanks in advance for your get well soon messages.

Kind of been distracted with Jimmy John's. No news to report yet.

Important thread of religious sensitivity training.

RT @NaomiKritzer@twitter.com

Do not say "molotov" if you mean "mazel tov."

Also, "mazel tov" is what you say at weddings and to someone who's just announced exciting, happy news. It is not a festival greeting.

Interesting presentation on the challenge for cities to break away from zoning that inherently reinforces racist policies

Golden goose was good. But the character of "TN2 zoning" should have been played by a stick of dynamite.
