Duluth/Superior in the New York Times

Twinned cities now following different paths



about 10 years ago

I read this in today's New York Times and Jim also commented on Jim Heffernan's Blog. Interesting that both Mayor Ness and Mayor Bruce Hagen - or any of the other local politicians - weren't consulted. The video gives a more positive angle from the business owner than his comments in the story. It's really worth the read and reflects the culture of our political divide in the Twin Ports.

In as much as I agree with the premise of the article, I think a better analysis of the contrast between Republican control of the State vs. DFL control of the State could be done through our own history in just Minnesota. Pawlenty will be remembered as a disingenuous stooge for the religeo-corporcrats. Dayton has certainly dug us out of that hole, but the Vikings stadium will be the DFL's millstone.

In other words, nowadays Duluth and Superior are about as twinned as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Devito.

The reporter notably underplayed any discussion of macroeconomic performance of the two states -- which would not favor Walkeristan.
