I still think it would be a very good idea to have non-violent offenders working on pot-hole crews. I'll bet that on some days, a four imnate crew could complete three or more miles of city streets per day. If we nultiplied that out by the number of people cooling their heels at county taxpayer expense, well, you get my message.

Cataclysmic events worldwide, but here, we got potholes, nfl labor strife, and people who don't want to pay their debts. It's a tough living.

The phrase "really tough spring" due to potholes in such close proximity to the news that "30,000 Remain missing" in Japan somehow puts potholes into perspective.

Remember when the dems overode TPaw's veto of the new gas tax after the bridge collapse. wasn't that also designed to help maintain roads. Bet Gov Goofy will want to raise another gas tax.

Minneapolis is filled with craters and they have posted a job for Director of Arts! For nearly $100,000 per year.(It's been posted on the Minneapolis website for over a week.)So much for RT saying streets and public safety are a priority.

Everyone please quit your complaining. Would you rather live in Japan? Or New Jersey? Or Grand Forks? Or Crookston?

What has Japan, New Jersey, Grand Forks or even Crookston got to do with the crumbling streets in Minnesota. For some reason the huge amounts of tax money generated and collected from owners and operators of cars and trucks just seem to disappear and is not being used where it was intended, maintaining the roadways. At this time there is more attention being paid to the stadium and light rail debacle and not the maintenance of our existing roadways which should be an issue of far greater important which has to be addressed and resolved. So you see, we have issues right here locally that have to be resolved, however, if you want to pack up and go to Japan, New Jersey, Grand Forks or even Crookston, feel free to do so, you may make a difference, although, I doubt it.
