If it’s difficult for the city to clean up these properties, why are they not attempting to contract out the work? Or better yet, offer money to the community associations for the work?
Raymond Dehn is a liberal mayoral candidate for the City of Minneapolis. Honestly, I could stop writing at this point, and the title and this sentence would explain itself. But I will continue, because it’s really worth discussing, not to mention the response from the current mayor, and everyone’s favorite white woman to hate thisContinue reading “Friday Night Opinion: Minneapolis Mayoral Candidate Doesn’t Want Armed Police”

Under The Sun released last year, and in terms of documentaries, is as unlikely of a film as you can get. The director, Vitaly Mansky, agreed to produce a film through the North Korean government’s delegation that handles media. They met at a film festival in Russia the year before, and then in 2013, filmingContinue reading “Review: Under The Sun”
Well, I don’t normally like to give myself credit, but I think my letter to Harry, (A Letter to Harry Caray), may have lit a fire with my favorite friends on the Northside.
