‘All There Is To Do In This Town Is Drink,’ Said Across Towns All Across America, Not Just Superior

Recently I published a blog about a unique fact about liquor stores in Superior.  On Facebook, a response came that "Everything in this town has to do with drinking."  Last year it was announced that another bar in Superior was opening up, and the negative responses came in, "Just another drinking place, where are the other things to do?"  After living in many different communities, I find it interesting that this common complaint occurs in EVERY CITY.

As Soon As The Weather Gets Nicer People Drive Like Idiots

Today was a legitimately nice day in the Northland.  Temperatures hit the 70s and it felt just nice.  The sun was out, I was driving back from an appointment in Carlton, when I nearly was taken off the road by a car that cut into my lane on I 35.  I shrugged it off, kept my cool and kept going.   Just minutes later another car passed me going close to 90 and "shot the gap" in between me and a semi.  What the heck was going on?!  It happens every year at this time.   Nicer weather and people drive like idiots.
