Remembering duluthtourism.com

It’s probably not worth remembering this, but an image from it resides in PDD’s archives and the controversy surrounding it occurred ten years ago this month, so we’ll give it passing mention.

There once was a satirical website at duluthtourism.com that was far more sophomoric than funny, but famously raised the ire of Duluth’s then-mayor Herb Bergson, who asked the city attorney to look into the legal means to have the site shut down.

The site mostly featured altered images with dim gags like Bergson inserted in front of the NorShor Theatre with the marquee reading “Gay Porn Nite.” Once the mayor had a fit, the creator of the site took the offending posts down. Nothing remains there now except a parked page from GoDaddy, attempting to sell the domain at an inflated price.
