Over the river and through the Dells

I’m off to Chicago tomorrow to spend Christmas with my parents. In Chicago, things like this never happen. Free registration may be required to read the story. Basically, a young man walked in the (unlocked) front door of a Motley, MN home, tied up the homeowners, and demanded their money. The couple, though, kept asking the burglar if they could fix him a meal.

“What do you need?” said the wife. “Are you hungry? How can we help you?”

Going home always makes me realize how much I miss my family and how many things I miss about Chicago. It’s amazing, though: somebody’s robbing your house and you offer to feed him. It’s stories like that that make Minnesota feel like my home.
