    It's small town. I don't care about the most famous tennis shoe or biggest super ball or whatever. I would like to know what makes you tick? We have found out about politics in snowmobile clubs...taught bartenders new drinks (to them, anyways)...bs'ed about sports (local and otherwise). It's all about the "Cheers" atmosphere.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I remember seeing somewhere today that they were working to save some of the icons and relics. So it might be a total catastrophic loss but still really bad.

    The 5-year-old boy who was thrown from a balcony at the Mall of America last week is “showing real signs of recovery,” his family said Friday.

    “We have good news to share with you all on this Good Friday!” the family said in a statement. “Our miracle child Landen is showing real signs of recovery. New test results have been positive, though he remains in intensive care with a long road ahead.”

    Landen was the victim of a horrifying attack at the Bloomington mall on April 12, when a man picked up the child and threw him nearly 40 feet onto a stone floor.

    Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, 24, of Minneapolis is charged with attempted first-degree premeditated murder in the attack. He is being held in the Hennepin County jail in lieu of $2 million bail.

    Aranda told police he went to the mall “looking for someone to kill,” according to court documents. Surveillance video showed Aranda walking on the third floor and looking over the balcony several times before approaching Landen and his mother, a criminal complaint said.

    Won't surprise me if he ends up in St. Peter, MN.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    The Boy Scouts have kept files going back decades showing that nearly 8,000 volunteers have been excluded from the organization because they had been accused of sexually abusing children, according to a review by an expert on child sexual abuse.

    The expert, Janet Warren, a professor at the University of Virginia, revealed the scope of the reported abuse when she testified as an expert witness in a trial involving allegations of child sexual abuse at a children’s theater in Minneapolis.

    Her findings were described on Tuesday by a lawyer, Jeff Anderson, who has represented sexual abuse victims in cases against organizations like the Boy Scouts and the Roman Catholic Church.

    Ms. Warren said during her testimony that she had been hired by the Boy Scouts and spent five years reviewing data known as the “perversion files’’ that contained information on volunteers whose involvement in the group had been ended “because of reasonable allegations of child sexual abuse.”

    Wait, so her supposed cure for being gay is... ramming something up your butt to get the gay out?

    Are you supposed to say "No Homo," as you insert the suppository?

    Also, I legit laughed out loud that this obvious story was a related article...

    Could be subtitled "Christian homophobia explained."

    I'm more worried that the guys in the pic appear to be twins. I guess Bob Gray was right and homosexuality leads inexorably to incest, bestiality, and pedophilia.
