Our local left-wing radicals at Jack Pine are closing their doors. Apparently, it’s tough to be a radical and make rent:
Jack Pine Community Center shutting down
Twin Cities radicals and activists will lose one of their most beloved meeting grounds when the Jack Pine Community Center closes its doors this week. Citing a lack of “sufficient energy to make the Jack Pine financially feasible,” the group has decided against renewing the lease to its East Lake Street location.
They say it was a “Herculean task” to keep the doors open as long as they did, but I think most people wouldn’t consider holding a steady job a “Herculean task” since 94.5% of you do it.
