Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

Remember the Indians who tore down the Columbus statue on the capitol grounds, as Capitol Police stood by and did nothing?

Governor Walz promised there would be “consequences.”  Haven’t noticed any news articles about charges being filed. Did they get a time out? Double secret probation?

What exactly are the consequences for destroying government property? I’m feeling oppressed by the health department. Can I go burn it down?

If the “Penalty” for destroying statuary is nervous foot-shuffling and occasional statements with no followup, I’m totally going after that Floyd Olson statue.

  1. I’m keeping an eye on the large, bronze Minnehaha Bunny. It’s rather squat though. Maybe it was designed to be difficult to topple. I guess it just shows the privilege of that south Minneapolis neighborhood.

  2. I have no idea why people want to pull down statues. Instead we should do something productive. Why not plow under all that useless grass on the capital grounds and plant turnips for the homeless?

  3. Meanwhile, the St. Paul paper had lots of video of the people who broke into the Lululemon store. Police are asking for help in identifying the people protesting women in yoga pants.
