Sign Away: Replace Columbus Statue With Prince At MN Capitol

There’s always a lot of opportunities for “online activism” here in Twincy, so when we see worthwhile petitions we figure we’ll share them to help get some signatures. Here’s one:

We still maintain the only appropriate Prince statue would be a 50 ft purple sentinel straddling the 35W-94 intersection, but this should also happen: In the wake of racist monuments coming down all over the country, someone created an online petition to remove the Columbus statue at the MN Capitol and replace it with a Prince statue. Sounds good, and lets hope this doesn’t lead the many outstate legislators to get into why we should keep a Columbus monument.
