Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Seeing as the park board has basically been acting like a petulant child lately, one could argue they're due a few slaps, if one believes in the corporal punishment sort of thing.

Seeing as the whole reason suburbs became a thing in the first place is so that the "us" could flee the "them," that's not really surprising.
