Many things happened in the Land of 10,000 Lakes; including a drought that turned us into the Land of 10 Lakes and a handful of slews. Some were good, some were sad, some were darn tootin’ funny.
So here in HotDish Hell, MN, we’ve put together this review of the last 365 days in Minnesota:
-A teacher at Heights Community School was suspended for racist comments he made to his African American students.
“It’s easier for me to teach rich white folks than poor black people”
“you kids are fat, black and stupid”
“you’ll never amount to anything, just holding a sign for food on a street corner”
“You only have one parent”
-a 9 year old boy wanted to epitomize Michael Jackson from his music video for “Billy Jean” and was suspended when he grabbed his crotch.
-Folks at a Rochester trailer park were told they would no longer get home delivery from the U.S. Post Office because their places were unsafe with viscious animals, junk, and broken mail boxes.
-In Chaska, a man was cited for Disorderly Conduct for swearing at the top of his lungs at his cat. Sadly, this was not his first offense.
-KEYC former News Anchor Annie Stensrud of Pankato becomes a viral sensation when she is caught reading the news drunk shortly after getting arrested for a DWI.
-Raquel Guckeen cooks her nose off from tanning too much. What do you expect. it’s minnesota. we get the sun for two months out of the year.
-WCCO talk show host “Dark Star” is found dead in his apartment.
-Nursing mother Hadley Barrows is banned from the public library for breast feeding her infant in public.
-Flooding in Duluth kills several people and zoo animals. Nothing like a polar bear roaming the neighborhood.
-Pankato’s Electric Beach tanning salon holds the first ever minnesota bikini parade to break a Guiness World record. They didn’t make it due to the low numbers and protests by a conservative crowd.
-Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water in Duluth…The Otter attacks. Two women are brutally attacked by ferocious otter in local lake.
-Majority of Minnesota voters re-elect Barack Obama as President. They don’t allow amendments defining marraige, and they also shoot down the requirement of “Voter I.D.”
-Of course the world was supposed to “end” on the 21st and we all woke up on the 22nd. some of us went “whew”, some “hahaha” others “crap”.
