Good Question LogoIf you, like me, don’t own a TV, you may not be familiar with WCCO’s “Good Question” segments where Jason DeRusha solicits questions from viewers then goes about answering their questions.

It’s a cool way to involve WCCO’s audience in a portion of their broadcasts. In fact, you can get on the air by submitting your “good question” via video.

DeRusha made a point of asking for additional “Good Question” ideas on his ‘CCO blog earlier today near the end of a post where he explained that an upcoming “Good Question” segment would get to the bottom of how neighborhoods get their names. But check out the exception he added to his “Good Question” solicitation:

Weekend Thoughts: And How Do Neighborhoods Get Their Names?

Don’t be afraid to send dumb ones too. Except if your name is Ed Kohler and you’re e-mailing at 2 in the morning. Nothing good happens after midnight, people.

Ouch. That hurts. DeRusha, you’re off the list. What list? It’s too late to ask.

So, I had an idea for a “Good Question” segment that’s apparently too dumb for ‘CCO. However, I think the real reason is that it’s simply too hot for DeRusha to touch. And this is a guy who spent a recent day asking women to show him their zippers.

Luckily, there is more than one place in this town to get questions answered. For this, I turned to the Twin Cities’ red light district, Afterglide.com, where I have a guest post running that’s already received two responses in the first hour.

The topic: boob job etiquette. See for yourself and contribute your own answers to this, “Good Question.”

Progress in Trevor Marsh Murder Case

Trevor Marsh Crime SceneTrevor MarshBack in October, the body of a 17-year old Minneapolis South High School student was found in the Mississippi river gorge at 32nd St. The Star Tribune ran a column at the time with quotes from a few kids who knew him, but the story was later pulled from their web site.

KARE 11 has a story on this along with the photo to the right from the crime scene. WCCO ran a biographical story five days after Marsh’s murder.
The police issued warrants just before the new year and have started rounding up suspects. Here’s the press release from the MPD:

Minneapolis police charge suspects in the Oct. 26 murder of Trevor Marsh

Jan. 4, 2007 (MINNEAPOLIS) Minneapolis police have four suspects in custody for involvement in the Oct. 26, 2006 murder of high school student, Trevor Marsh.

On Dec. 29, 2006, a 16-year-old male was charged with one count of Crime Committed for Benefit of Gang and one count of Murder on the Second Degree and a warrant for his arrest was issued.  On Jan. 3, 2007, this 16-year-old male was taken into custody in Omaha, Nebraska by local police.  Extradition is pending.

Also in custody for involvement in the crime are two adults and a 15-year-old male.  George Martin Boleo (aka George Martin Neiss) (DOB 01-22-81) has been charged with one count of Crime Committed for Benefit of Gang and one count of Accomplice After the Fact.  He is in custody at the Hennepin County Adult Detention Center, and bail has been set at $250,000.

Tia Marie  (DOB 06/24/88) has been charged with one count of Accomplice After the Fact.  She is in custody at the Hennepin County Adult Detention Center, and bail for her has also been set at $250,000.

The remaining conspirator, a 15-year-old male, has been arrested and is being held in the Juvenile Detention Center.  The case is being reviewed by the office of the Hennepin County Attorney for criminal charges.

Boleo, Dropick and the 15-year-old male were taken into custody by the Minneapolis Police Department’s Violent Criminals Apprehension Team (VCAT) on Jan. 3, 2007.  Charges in this case come after a determined investigation by Minneapolis homicide investigators, Sergeant Nancy Dunlap and Sergeant Pete Jackson who traveled across the country pursuing leads to bring this case to a successful conclusion.

Shortly before 5:30 pm on Oct. 26, 2006, Marsh’s body was found near the bank of the Mississippi River in south Minneapolis. The body was in an area along a dirt foot path near E. 32nd Street and W. River Parkway.  He had been shot.  Marsh was 17-years-old when he was killed.
