It's funny 'cause it's true.

Did anyone else catch him credit "Chris Monroe" as a writer at the end of the show? Is that Marshall Hardware's own Chris Monroe?

As a life-long Duluthian, I would like to express my appreciation to those transplants of the last 10-20 years who have made this town better.

TimK -- thanks for the appreciation --I have been here 11 years!

I moved here in 2000.  It was a good move.

Thanks TimK! I can't believe I've lived in Duluth for 17 years. Time flies when you are having fun. I loved when Keillor was saying, one isn't "from" Duluth unless one is born here. It's so, so true.

Claire, absolutely.  I laughed out loud when Garrison said that.  As a 20 year resident, I can only say, "That is so, so true."

I'm so glad I was lucky enough to move up here!

We transplants should get together and discuss our "moving to Duluth" experiences.

Transplanted 3 months ago!! We got a kick out of this, as we are still getting our feelers... :)

Transplanted in 1995.  A get-together would be great.  Could someone born & bred attend to show us the exact boundaries of Hunter's Park, West Duluth, Piedmont, Goat Hill, Gary, etc?  We'd buy you a beer.

I drew up a sloppy map of the West Duluth boundaries recently. (Click on it to see it better.)



Some day I might develop graphic art skills and maybe have enough free time to do this right. But probably not.

I left (beat ass out of there) L.A. and planted myself here in October of 1993.

No Lincoln Park? ;)
I moved here in '94, never looked back.

This PDF is what I use to determine neighborhoods. 

The problem is that it doesn't include certain neighborhoods that it should: like Morningside, or Goat Hill; and it merges neighborhoods that should be separate. It's the only one I've found, however.

I moved here in 1995, and I fully expect to die here as a pain-in-the-ass old woman who runs a boarding house for foreign exchange students. (Yes, that is my retirement plan. Florida is for pussies.)

Moved here in '98, have always loved it.

Had no idea you moved here the same year I did, Jim.

This clip didn't make it to my inbox until after Valentine's Day, but hey, it's 100 years old anyway, so...
