Trees and parks? Who needs em, cut them all down and sell the land so my taxes can be cut by a penny. Drain all the lakes and fill them in with dirt, old concrete and asphalt.

"Barren" is definitely the correct way to describe the landscape now in North Mpls. Such a shame about all those beautiful trees.

Thanks for sharing Star Tribune. Over a week since it happened. Good thing I had other sources for my news.

Take a look at Joplin Mo, or Tuscaloosa Al. I would say we are extremely lucky and this article is a little insulting....

Let's worry less about the golfers than the everyday residents of the area.

Yes blame the strib for having to cut reporters...they already have the largest audience in the state...so if they spent more on reporting. Would they make more money...nope
