It’s quiz time!
Is the following passage one of my hamfisted parodies of Minnesota “progressives?” Or an actual bit of “Progressive” content?
Lefse and kale wraps, kombucha tasting with Garrison Keillor and an artisan-crafted hotdish featuring organic, locally sourced tofu are just a few things that could bring people from Minneapolis and Los Angeles together. Are there more? You betcha. Both cities are filled with creative, progressive people who make their communities better and more inclusive for everyone. We have a lot in common.
It’s never been more important for all of us to work together—in cities all over the country. Whether you’re a Minnesotan who immigrated to Los Angeles or a native Angelino who happens to know the Twin Cities as some of coolest places on Earth, I hope you’ll join me for a fundraiser supporting the reelection of Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges. She’ll be there, along with Mayor Eric Garcetti and David Stone from William Morris Endeavor, who are the co-hosts for this event at the Wilshire Country Club.
Answer: It’s an actual bit from Betsy Hodges’ website. So it’s not, technically parody.
