    So bad turnipeeds have reached Hopkins too I see.
    Back in the days of Minneapolis Moline, later White Motor, Napco and the early industry era , when people worked that is, the bad seeds would have weeded out. Today ….. >sigh< ….. dirty seeds are everywhere

  2. Oh look, serial offenders out terrorizing our cities. Thank, Minnesota.
