Jessica Lange’s shout-out to Duluth

From Rolling Stone magazine:

What’s your favorite city and why?

Being that city back then … it was like another love affair! New Orleans, because it’s a separate universe down there, with different cultures co-existing in a way you don’t see other places. And Duluth, Minnesota, because it’s home. Shout-out to Duluth!

2) It’s been around since 2016 and has referenced Duluth a few times, like The Onion has.
