From Monday’s Star Tribune:
The Twin Cities area regularly ranks in the top of, well, just about any ranking. You might scoff at all the rally cries of “We’re No. 1,” but the accolades do, in fact, have meaning.
If you believe everything you read, you might think the average Twin Cities resident is an environmentalist gay hipster riding her bike to the theater every night with a significant other of another race.
