Re: MSP Airport

Tweet yesterday from Kyle Potter (Thrifty Traveler):

@mspairport Executive Director Brian Ryks says
@Delta CEO Ed Bastian recently assured regional leaders that final news on the MSP-Shanghai nonstop is coming soon.

I actually agree with most of this list from my travel experience, especially the top 10. TX, SC, and TN all seemed incredibly friendly from my experience.

Re: Wabasha Center (Former Macy's) - Downtown St. Paul

What's really frustrating about this project is that it could have been so much better by just having the damn street-level windows NOT black/opaque!! One small change would have made a real difference. Boo to the city and this developer.
