Minnesota Nice is very much alive and vibrant. We Minnesotans come from backgrounds of knowing that hard work does indeed pay off. For years growing up, we would often times find ways to work hard to gain some sort of reward. If there was not a reward, then we were working hard because our moms were gett...

I don’t understand a lot of the terminology, the strategic planning or why we accuse rather than work to fix situations together.
