Around Lake Calhoun on a Sunday afternoon

Who knows how many nice days we have left this year, so my friends and I took advantage of the wonderfully warm weather, and walked around Lake Calhoun. The wind on the north side of the lake was taken advantage of by windsurfers when we started around; I counted 10 surfriders out on the water, just booking across. The leaves were amazing. Who says you have to drive out of the city to look at the leaves? We have our own arboreal firework display right here in Uptown. Get out there and look while you can, the Winter Carnival will be here before you know it.

Call your local legislator: Vote to Outlaw Rocks

First Minnesota outlaws smoking in private businesses, then text messaging in private vehicles — heck, legislation was even proposed to ban walking down alleys.

After watching this video — featuring the handiwork of a couple treacherous rocks in Uptown — I propose we create legislation to ban the possession and use of rocks (in the name of public safety).


A rock ban is really the only way the government can truly protect us all. These rocks must be stopped.

Remember, people don’t hurt cars. Rocks do.
