Overlooking 35W and 94th St. in Bloomington, a billboard for KQRS radio reads ‘Our Lawyer is Always Busy.’ According to protesters who gathered outside station headquarters last week, KQRS has a battle on its hands. On December 6, more than 75 people braved single-digit temperatures to demand that the classic rock station fire popular morning DJs Tom Barnard and Terri Traen for derogatory statements they made about American Indians more than two months ago.

“U of M gets more money it doesn’t need, while Minneapolis schools are struggling”:https://www.tcdailyplanet.net/node/8466
by Dwight Hobbes, Insight News
Once again, the University of Minnesota benefits from funding-source rocket scientists having lost what little mind they ever had in the first place. It was announced Oct. 19 – and quite gleefully – by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux that the tribe had given the U of M/Twin Cities Campus $12.5 million. Ten million to build the forthcoming TCF Stadium, with the other $2.5 earmarked for a cosmetic shell-game approximation of helping Native students enter the school. Now, UnitedHealth Group Inc. has announced that it will give the University of Minnesota a cool $3 million. This supposedly in the interest of donating $100 million over the next ten years to Minnesota groups involved in education, health and social well-being.
