It's wonderful to see people using the renovated, $242 million Union Depot. That makes three times in the last 12 months!

Hey dornfesr, don;t forget the billion dollar light rail to the 100% empty obsolete wasteland of downtown Saint Paul! Or the 10's of millions tax payers were fleeced out for the almost minor league baseball team. All while businesses flee Saint Paul and the city circles further down the drain...Hard to believe it was actually once a gem with lots of businesses, entrepreneurs, and good middle and upper class jobs. That's all long gone. All we have left is welfare and more welfare. So sad.

Why not truly stand up for minorities and end the racist war on marijuana? It has been well documented for decades that minorities are overwhelmingly charged and prosecuted for marijuana offenses disproportionately more than European Americans, yet the use rates are the same. Huh? Want to end the achievement gap in Saint Paul schools and simultaneously truly revitalize downtown? End marijuana prohibition on a city wide level!

If Mayor Coleman's latest cause is the "achievement gap" shouldn't he have run for the school board?

@bighead8806, you're right, there aren't any businesses left to flee anymore!
