      Incredible. Borderline illegal, really. When DID the city council put an item on an agenda proclaiming Bookmeyer the economic development dignitary/expert/honcho, giving him a budget and a blank check to lolligag across the state (and the nation) creating these assinine “deals”? When? The answer is NEVER DID. How much $$$ does he waste on these fruitless trips to DC and Des Moines and God-knows-where? Answers???

    Harvey Weinstein more than likely exploited young beautiful women using his vantage point as a powerful Hollywood producer…but guess what? So do a lot of famous people….Trump included. What gets me is how these same young Hollywood starlets who are beautiful and sexy use their sexiness to advance their careers and love it when a male they consider to be sexy and beautiful hits aggressively on them, perhaps even groping them without their explicit verbal consent. But when a fat ugly Jewish guy advances on them, they act grossed out and mortified. What we have here is a case of the wealthy and powerful intefering with the physically sexy and beautiful. It’s a Darwin equation of sorts and the young girls are pissed off because they want Weinstein’s money without having to indulge the guy sexually. But they’d willingly give up their sexpots to some young hot male with no money down at the nightclub.

      My point is that oridinary looking humans who aren’t blessed with sexy good looks shouldn’t sympathize with women who would never give them a chance sexually, yet want adoration and attention, and ultimately money and power from you. The women have sex appeal, that is their power. Weinstein has money and control over the film industry, that is his power. All’s fair in this system, and it’s more of a form of elitism by the snobby women who would never in a million years consider having sex with Harvey Weinstein but would open their legs in a New York Minute for someone like Brad Pitt or Ryan Gosling. No thanks girls. You don’t deserve sh**

    To be a nation of political correctness, I think that we should do away with Columbus Day. I’m sure that he wasn’t the great person that we were taught in school. He had to hurt/exploit somebody in his life time, that we were never told about. Anyway, where’s my mail.

      Wow, some readers sure got bent out of shape on this one. Let me be perfectly clear, I’m so far away from being politically correct, that the sun sets between my house and the road. I made the above comment as a joke, because of all the BS that’s going on in this country. History is history and we can’t change it, we can only try and do better. I agree, all our history is not good, but it’s our history. If you don’t like it, move to Avatar.

      The perverted logic is that this shooting was committed “in-house”. In their minds, as long as it was an American NRA white guy who did the shooting, it will be chalked up as a twisted human sacrifice ceremony to the Gun Gods. Were it to be a negro, Muslim, or liberal, it would be a call for Martial Law.

            Most of the media outlets in this country are leftist, meaning that the slant they give to things is almost always
            from a leftist perspective. Like they began an article about the middle east saying that Israel was invading the “tiny” nation of Lebanon, when in fact they are both small and both about the same size…. They use words to subtly and not so subtly express a point of view instead of just reporting facts

    If anyone was paying attention to the Ken Burns Vietnam documentary, they’d realize Ho Chi Minh was an ally at one point, and the O.S.S. actually saved his life with medical treatment. While I never knew the intricate details of the convoluted war, it’s clear now that America lost that war, betrayed many people, and generally made a mess of things worse than the French. At the small town level however, all we are instructed is to Support Our Troops and revere the Veterans. Any policy talk is regarded as unpatriotic and insulting to those who fought in that war.

    The government picks on certain people and scapegoats them. If you are one of the unfortunate ones targeted, you must suck it up and take it. The government fashions its rules and laws in terms of decades of time, because they know how short a human lifespan is. The government is a bunch of F-heads. At this point I say Que Sera Sera. If someone destabilizes the government or the system in a way which frees people from its life long tyranny…I say so be it.

    It’s official: KIMT and it’s properties are officially owned by a Rochester MN media company. Our hometown CBS3 is no longer hometown. This is why 75% of the reports are from MN. I and other local advertisers have removed them from our ad budgets. MC continues to shrink and vacate!
