Minneapolis did well in this look at best commutes.

Okay, we did surprisingly really well in the transit commuting measures. Unsurprisingly well for the car commuting though. But will this get daylight in the StarTribune or Pioneer Press?

That's interesting to see. I wonder why our transit commutes are so short. I'm guessing a combination of relatively compact local service and extensive express service that doesn't face much congestion on highways (and can use shoulders to pass)?

Park Rankings. DC now #1, Mpls moves to #3. St. Paul stays at #2:

https://www.mprnews.org/story/2019/05/2 ... mains-no-2

"Officials with the trust say movement in the top spots shows that cities, including Washington, D.C., have been stepping up their parks game in response to the rankings. They also point out that more people now live in Minneapolis, which can push down the number of people in the city near parks and the per-capita park spending. The Metropolitan Council this week said the population had grown by more than 46,000 in the last eight years."

Minnesota ranked 3rd best state to live in, after Vermont and Hawaii.

Low rating for attractions. But so was Montana... huh.

I think that just means we don't have a lot of traditional touristy stuff like historical sites, entertainment districts, really famous museums, amusement parks, etc. After all, our top tourist site is a mall. :)

another pointless list, but hey whatevs. MN #1 baby!:

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.

I guess this should go here. As a native Minneapolitan I want to give some love to St. Paulites and say this is poor form on the buisness journal staff. Nothing like listing the location as Minneapolis when talking about a site in St. Paul.

So I'll grant I'm giving them a huge benefit of the doubt, but the location in the lede would be where the disclosure occurred, not where the site will be developed. So if the developer disclosed more details in Minneapolis, then it's correct.

Definitely a difficult time. How is everyone doing today? I’m sad, angry, frustrated, and emotionally exhausted. Doing my best to balance being ally and taking care of myself.

Yeah... I'm a Frey guy, but not sure how he makes it out of this.
