At risk of setting off an avalanche of flaming comments here on PDD I am going to post this interview that I worked on today.
The City of Duluth’s request for an appeal of the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals full panel has been denied. Karen Diver came in to the WGZS studios today to discuss her take on that decision and the way forward. In addition to all of the legal wrangling and tribal sovereignty issues that she takes up in this interview, I also thought it was interesting when (toward the end) she addressed a desire to cooperate with Duluth businesses and establishments including the NorShor which is much beloved by many a PDDer. I have divided interests in this matter personally and even if I did have a fully formed opinion about what would be “right” I am not really in a position to express it here. And anyway, I don’t have a fully formed opinion. And that’s where you come in PDD:
What do you think the FDL Band should do going forward? What do you think Duluth should do?
(Please note that the video may provide some context, but really this is a radio interview, not television, the lines are blurred on social media).
