@justpbob: Might as well just do away entirely with Anoka County. Problems solved.

Dight Ave in Minneapolis is named after the founder of the Minnesota Eugenics Society. Might be something we should consider changing. http://www.mnhs.org/library/tips/history_topics/117eugenics.html

Let’s not stop there. “St. Paul” might need a name-change, too, given the history of Roman Catholic abuses over the centuries.

Tornadoes can’t go to St. Paul, they’d get lost.
