The man wielded a metal baseball bat as he smashed the car windows around six in the evening on 18th Ave S in South Minneapolis on June 19th. Officers Tracy Lemieux and Steven Klimpke, on bike patrol, saw him and headed over. William Lussier, 34, bat in hand, jumped in his own vehicle and made a run for it.

Pablo and Nicole • Bolivia, 6/18/08, World View

by Jay Gabler, TC Daily Planet
We just received a press release from one Samuel Rockwell, a Minneapolis native who is currently the drummer for the Brooklyn-based band The XYZ Affair. The band is coming to the Nomad Pub on July 26, and Rockwell sent a few links in hopes of drumming up some press interest. It worked! This is the video for their song “All My Friends.” I never watched enough Nickelodeon to recognize most of the actors making cameos here, but I sure as hell know a Marc Summers when I see one.
