Comment : The Anoka City Forum received appreciation and one legitimate complaint for the link to www.maplewoodmn.blogspot.com . The Anoka Forum was criticized for being too "researchy": Mary C. said, "Why not be more entertaining like Maplewood's blog?"
"Maplewood has their Queen Diana and her minions. Why not have a contest for our guy: like Baron Bjorn or Little Boy Blunder, Baloney Bjorn or Bounder Bjorn?"
The Maplewood blog took the courteous position that if their council was going to invite ridicule, it would be MN Nice to oblige them.
Other Comments: These also spanned the spectrum. Whether you say "Alright" or "Ouch". Our contributors and commenters were commended for being involved, responsible American citizens or tedious self-righteous scolds.
Agreeing with Grampa Sam regarding Bjorn Skogquist flipping the bird on cable meetings: "That was a problem in our family, too. The boys were at the age they thought it was great fun to 'flip the bird' to the biker dudes while Dad's pumping gas. We do have biker relatives, but they are not all as nice as our family I tried to explain."
"Then they see the suit on tv doing it. I had to explain maybe the guy on tv didn't have a Dad to explain about people might bust your face, if you do that to them." Paul F.
