On Wednesday, City Pages published Minnesota Hall of Shame: The infamous locals we'd rather not claim. Throughout the day, readers provided a good number of additional assholes, villains, and monsters they believe belong on the list. Below, we've rounded up a selection of those responses.
From reader Michael Lee:
If you’re holding the same standard in which you held Laura Ingalls Wilder, then why not include Judy Garland, who has done blackface on more than one occasion?
*raises hand* did Corey Stewart make the list?— Brandi, #1 Penguin Advocate ���� (@ItsTheBrandi) August 6, 2020
I'd have put Katherine Kersten at the top of this list. She's just plain nuts.
Geez not even Kris Lindahl?— ������ 4-6 weeks away from COVID-19 containment (@BreeMinneapolis) August 6, 2020
You forgot T. Eugene Thompson.
Andrew Cunanen, Hal Greenwood, Dr Walter Palmer, Luke Helder, Isadore Blumenfeld, Tom Petters, Denny Hecker, Shirwa Ahmed, Alexander Ramsey, John McLaughlin, Danny Heinrich— F. Quick (@quick13) August 6, 2020
Mike Freeman. The DA defender of killer cops. He even wasn't sure about George Floyd.
How did Bob Kroll not make the list? Wtf— A �� (@abigailrj) August 5, 2020
What about Gary Anderson?
The person who created this list— Terry (@bringbacknoise) August 6, 2020
Tom Petters? Alexander Ramsey? Henry Sibley?
Add Charles Fremont Dight to your list: professor of eugenics in the 1930s, huge fan of Hitler (he even wrote to Hitler and received a reply), and he lived in a tree house in South Minneapolis.
How about add the coward who wrote this article to the list, since they're toi [sic] ashamed to use their name. Mike Mullen perhaps. Gotta love these CP commies spewing their vitriol as usual. Lots of jealousy directed towards others with more than them, sad losers.
