My favorite part of this is the Strib comment hot takes on "Why did liberal Minneapolis think it was going to get it," all replied with variations of "Austin is one of the most liberal cities in the country."

I watched this last night at 9pm. It was a great episode! See if it is streaming on TPT if you didn't catch it.

We saw it, too. Great episode. I learned a few things.

Another personal finance website ranks states for happiness. Using their scale Minnesota ranks the happiest state. SD 2nd, CO 3rd...

What a weird cross section of people who decide to go to this random website and be mad at a meaningless study.

In case people are wondering, Minnesota is only happy outside of the two libtard cities, and because we have a small black population, and we also have nothing on New Yorkers in terms of rudeness. Plus this is just a libtard survey that's skewed toward libtard states like Minnesota ... and North Dakota and South Dakota and Utah.

He's paraphrasing the comments on the website, not expressing his own opinion.

This is a shameless request, but could anyone with a subscription share what they discuss in this article? I’m curious if there is anything of substance. I’ve always thought something like “the northern lights bowl,” or “the bold north bowl,” would be a cool thing for The Twin Cities to do.

Maybe once we stop being such a lame winter destination it would work well. Lets figure that out first, then invite the yokels.

I'm pretty sure the people at U.S. Bank Stadium would rather have the CFP National Championship game, rather than have a bowl that might not have a B1G team available.
Buildings, what buildings?

Thats understandable. I figure we could do both though. Would having an earlier bowl eliminate the chance to host the CFP national championship game?

Are you thinking of anything specific when you say this? What do you think we could do better?

Some coverage of the Minneapolis 2040 vote today from Slate.

I wonder if it'll be significant, in terms of being a national model, that Minneapolis was 'the first' to make this kind of change. Minneapolis is an extraordinarily progressive city, just as much if not more progressive than coastal cities like San Francisco, Seattle, NYC, and DC. But it's definitely less famously so. If San Francisco passed a progressive policy like this, it'd probably be easier for folks in Indianapolis or wherever to write it off as some lefty aberration. But if a city in the Real American Heartland can make this change (I'm certainly assuming that people have some uncomfortable biases here, especially about race, that are inevitably tied up in zoning discussions), will other cities across the country see it as more feasible for themselves? Is it easier for more cities to see themselves in Minneapolis than to see themselves in a coastal place?

On the flip side, because it's Minneapolis and not a major hub of national media, will this move receive less attention and publicity than it might otherwise? That seems almost certainly so at least in terms of mainstream, general audience press. But will that matter, if (perhaps) Minneapolis' example still widely spreads among elected leaders and public policy experts?

Levi's Stadium is hosting the Redbox bowl on Dec 31st and then the CFP Championship Game on Jan 7th. So yes, it can be done.

Just need a Corporate Sponsor for the Bowl (i.e. US Bank Bowl, Target Bowl, Best Buy Bowl, 3M Bowl).

It's on City Lab too - I think Minneapolis is not understood as progressive by people from outside the area, so yeah - could be easier for the Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Columbus cities of the world to relate.
