Grover wasn’t impressed with the depth of my reporting on CityPages’ staff changes. Apparently, some news is worse than no news.
I’m not going to take Grover’s complain one step further by throwing out some topics that I know exist but haven’t researched for more than 30 seconds. I hope Grover’s blue head doesn’t explode when he sees this:
1. There is no Wikipedia entry for Double Decker Tacos.
2. Advertisers are likely being mislead by StarTribune.com’s stats due to automatic reload of pages bumping up their pageview and time on site stats.
3. St. Paul now makes better Jucy Lucy’s than Minneapolis.
4. Cup Foods’ (not Cub Foods – Cup Foods) business model seems kind of strange.
5. Joe Soucheray pretends to be a rube on his radio show. Does he enjoy pretending to be less intelligent than he is? Is it more valuable to let people complain about things they don’t understand than help them understand what they’re complaining about? Does he cringe at the stupid stuff that comes out of his mouth while driving to the bank to deposit his paycheck?
I may or may not ever get around to writing in more depth about any of these issues. If you have some knowledge about any of these – or, as Grover requests, you like picking up the phone – write what you know so we can learn together.
