For sure,the metro council is a engine for the Utopia dreams the communists from liberal universities dole out. They have to be "product" so its studies for "social engineering" that they soo love.the Pioneer press and other local medias exposure of the old lefts network over hiring 20 or more staff that is not needed. The left is a nest of radicals over there at the U of Mn. Not all professors but alot of dflers.They are getting money perks,health benefits etc. on the backs of the poor....Its really disgusting,but because the are Academia so goes the the media bowing in front of them..Its a corporate corrupt system..as the ones they scream about...in my opinion ... Minnesotans are blind to the "partnership" another networking name for them.
