Comment on PDD Gift Guide 2019 by Brian Barber

Comment on Climate>Duluth: Izzy Laderman by dulutherati

Wowzers Charlie.

Who knew that these green-technology elites have enough money to outspend and dominate the carbon-fuel elites?

Comment on Climate>Duluth: Izzy Laderman by Cosmic Charlie

This whole man made warming issue is baloney. It is a scam designed to enrich the few at the expense of the many. There are very real threats to the planet such as nuclear waste and depleted uranium munitions that we would be much wiser to focus on.

Comment on Snow-Fort City, Day 8 by Lake Superior Aquaman (aka Jim Richardson)

I appreciate your thoughtful question, citizen. And the answer is: nope. That is a feature, not a bug.

Comment on Snow-Fort City, Day 8 by Northern_Owlbear

As the Protector of Lake Superior, do you not foresee a conflict-of-interest in the position of mayor as the primary (and primal) foundations of Snow-Fort City are apt to melt into the primary component of your other role?

Comment on Yoshikas Sauna: Seventeen years of Memories in Duluth’s Friendly West End by Javi Lund Gomez

Ohhhh Suzy Woo
Baby I love you
Oh Suzy Woo, Baby I love you
Suzy Woo…

Just take out the ‘Susie Q’ and you have a new song to dedicate to the owner!

Comment on Journalism to break my heart by David Beard

I hear you. There was a story about a quote from the mayor that took an everyday practice as evidence of nefariousness.

Still, for every ounce of hyperbole, there is a pound of importance.

Comment on Journalism to break my heart by Northern_Owlbear

I appreciate what Ramos brings to the table as far reporting on the happenings in the city/county/school district from a policy level. No one else puts in the level of effort to attend these various meetings and put in FOI requests. With that said...

Comment on Moms & Dads Today, Duluth.com magazines fold by TimK

It’s almost as if Forum Communications has a curse. Everything they touch here begins to wither and die.

Comment on New Kid by Mary Immerfall

“stitched together with rubber bands and ham hocks?” Best line ever. I await your book.

Comment on Selective Focus: Michelle Truax by John Hartman

Is Michelle Truax related to former KDAL-TV Director, Glenn Truax?

Comment on Duluth Beer Exchange brings self-serve brews to Lincoln Park by Paul Lundgren

In response to Matt’s question: No, you can’t fill a growler. In Minnesota only brew pubs and production breweries can sell growlers.

Comment on Snow Removal Teamwork by Rae

What a lovely community!

Comment on Duluth Beer Exchange brings self-serve brews to Lincoln Park by Rae

I just experienced one of these on the West Coast, and thoroughly enjoyed it.

A piece of advice: Make sure the user before you moved the tap handle back to neutral before you drop in your card. I, unfortunately, dispensed about $5 of beer strai...

Comment on Duluth Beer Exchange brings self-serve brews to Lincoln Park by Kelly Lou Archambeault

I do think it’s awesome that they are trying to make Lincoln Park better, but how about the families that have absolutely nothing to do with their families. All Duluth is turning out to be is like Superior used to be — bars bars and more bars. How...

Comment on Duluth Beer Exchange brings self-serve brews to Lincoln Park by Matt Hill

I’d like it to sample a lot of beers. My g/f will like it because she can get small amounts as she can’t drink a whole pint.

Question. Is it “on premises” only, or can you fill growlers?

Comment on Duluth Beer Exchange brings self-serve brews to Lincoln Park by Paul Lundgren

I have a few observations to share that might be helpful, since most Duluthians have never been to a pour-your-own establishment. It’s not necessarily a better or worse drinking experience than traditional bars, it’s just different.

Yes, it is mor...

Comment on Duluth News Tribune publishes article by white nationalist by bhall

Thank you, Dave. You’re right to point out that extremist does not equal conservative. I’m concerned by the DNT’s lack of editorial rigor. And, thank you, Pdd.

Comment on Duluth News Tribune publishes article by white nationalist by Dave Sorensen

This guy is an extremist, not a conservative, but I don’t think the DNT knew of his views on race when they ran his article. And, by the way, what he calls “explosive” population growth in the United Statea is actually the slowest rate of growth i...

Comment on Duluth News Tribune publishes article by white nationalist by Rij

I’ve noticed a more conservative tilt since the DNT was taken over by the Fargo Forum.

Comment on Rolling Ruts: Inexpensive Golf Just Outside Duluth by Paul Lundgren

Eight years later update: Rolling Rutts appears to have ceased offering public golf in 2017.

Comment on Postcard from West Superior Street by Jacob Jacobson

The newest vehicle I can make out looks to be a 1958 or 1959 Plymouth parked on the left — red with the popular fins of that era. The rest of the cars look to be early 1950s to mid-1950s era.

Comment on Duluth Trivia Deck Sampler #28: KBJR Edition by Paul Lundgren

Item #3 states that 1959 was the year of the inaugural Christmas City of the North Parade. That has been often stated, but never proven. Most evidence points to 1960 as the first year.

This is something that has been debated on PDD numerous times....
