General Mills protest fail

So this assclown torches box of Cheerios in protest of General Mills support for same-sex unions, but it doesn’t quite go as planned. Glad he was dumb enough to film this borderline arson attempt. Maybe the cops can use it to track him down.

1991 Twins

Could the Minnesota Twins go from worst to first like they did in 1991?

How can politicians and business leaders from around the world meet in secrecy at a Swiss resort this past weekend and it not be covered by the mainstream media? See leaked Bilderberg list.

If home daycare providers form a union and decide to go on strike, who would they bargain with? They are self-employed! (news story)

Bruins fan allegedly stabbed in neck during riot

I am seriously considering not wearing a team jersey if I am watching a sporting event in a different city. With Bruins fans being stabbed in Vancouver and Giants fans being beaten in Los Angeles, I think I’ll dress a little more inconspicuously.

R.I.P. Porky’s – Closing on Sunday

I was very sad to hear the news about Porky’s in St. Paul closing it’s doors. The neighborhood drive-in rode the crusin’ craze of the 1950’s in St. Paul and was  a place to show off your classic car while eating famous onion rings. Everyone who lives in Minnesota has a story about this place.

Even though the owners said business was good, the tax hikes and newly planned construction of the Central Corridor light-rail line were factors in closing.

Porky’s will close their doors this Sunday. Thanks a lot light-rail people. I hope your happy.
