Ryan Bakken dropped my name in his Grand Forks Herald column today.He compares me (somewhat) favorably to Ed Schultz. In the same piece Ryan also writes about chest hair, aging and pie. Keep in mind w... Posted on 7/1/12 at 8:19 AM
Friday’s price of the Wagon Master burger was not from days gone by. Tom Campbell was the lone customer Friday, 24 hours before today’s opening to the public. He paid $1,600 for Westside Drive-In’s version of the Big Mac.
Here’s a proposed new North Dakotan slogan: “We have elbow room.” That’s something clearly lacking for Rhode Island residents, who recently were revealed in a national poll to experience the least enjoyment of any state.

Once upon a time, obnoxious behavior was punished. These days, it’s rewarded. The latest example of this cultural U-turn is A.J. Clemente. You likely have heard of him.
