I wish we had shipping news around here. I listened to it once while in Duluth, MN (on Lake Superior), but in the Twin Cities we are landlocked, so no ships.
I was only in downtown Minneapolis and the Mall of America, but from the little bit I saw, it seemed like a pretty good place. The people were strangely nice, the downtown was very walkable and accessible, and there was a fucking HUGE bookstore. I can't recall if it was a Borders or Barnes and Noble. Unfortunately, ever moving anywhere near there is simply out of the question because a shit ton of snow does not make for a disabled-friendly place.
I really want to post something in the Video Challenge thread, but I'm so awkward on video.
