Mpls vs St. Paul Politics 

True to form, St. Paul is reckoning with the role of police in a much quieter way. Our (very popular) mayor is the son of a police officer, which effectively takes "abolish the police" off the table, but at the same time gives him credibility to push through opposition for (hopefully meaningful) reforms.

Mpls vs St. Paul Politics 

Enjoying watching a very heated election season in Minneapolis from over here in sleepy St. Paul, where our incumbent mayor is a shoo-in for re-election and city council happens off-cycle. There's a school board race, but it's hard to engage with if, like me, you don't have kids

I guess I've reached whatever stage of adulthood where I'm endlessly entertained by learning about defunct media formats.

Anyway, my cousin Brad had a Minidisc player/recorder and I thought it was incredibly cool. We were on a hike once and he played me some Butthole Surfers and Guns n' Roses youtube.com/watch?v=CCK89V4NpJ

Shout out to this huge honkin’ cottonwood tree in the neighborhood. Just an absolute monster, legendary status at turning air into wood

@alex @Pixley @ponfarr I don't know if this would actually be good podcast content, but if I have to know about this then I am also forcing the three of you to know about it as well: onefoottsunami.com/2021/06/01/

Driving for hours just to get knocked around by bigger dudes until you end up at the IHOP in Sioux City as a sweaty mess with all your pals? We were truly living the life
