My name is Laura Prosser. I’m a journalism student working on an article trying to correlate the rise in bus ridership and the increase in gas prices. However, there are obviously other factors to the rise in ridership.
I’m looking for people who have something to say on this topic. I would like to find people who have a car but choose to ride the bus and what their reasons are for doing so. If you are interested in being a source and setting up an interview or have any information in relation to this topic please contact me.
My email address is pross016 @ d.umn.edu. You can also just leave comments here as well. Thank you for your time and consideration.

It’s written by Sparky Stensaas, stars a handsome ship captain and his floating forest, and even pulls in legendary bird watcher Jan Green.

Andrew Sullivan’s blog features a contest called “The View From Your Window” where people submit views, as it were, from their windows, and people have to guess where in the world it is. This week features a view familiar to Duluthians. He quotes my entry but I didn’t win.
Does anyone know of some authentic Korean cuisine around town? As much as I enjoy the standard Chinese options that are standard in every joint around, I’m hinkerin for a change. I’ll even expand the range to Northern Minnesota if need be. Come on folks, help me out!
