Every month or so there is a story in the Duluth News Tribune about a community member or group of people upset about something. The story usually features a photo like the one above, shot by Bob King.
I don’t mean to make light of any of the issues these people are upset about, or be critical at all of the photography. Just the opposite. What I’m saying is, for some reason I love these photos. Seriously.
Could Andrew Krueger, caretaker of the News Tribune Attic, put together a collection or slide show called “Upset Duluth,” showing all the concerned/outraged/irritated citizens over the years? It’s a potentially large project, but he could start small and grow the collection over time. I also think it might make a delightful coffee table book.
(Obviously this should not include photos of people in mourning, etc. — just the folks who are honked off about vandalism or skateboarders or whatever.)
Please don’t read sarcasm into this. I’m serious, and I make this request with all due respect.
