‘Faces of the conquerors’: Trump trip to Rushmore draws fire

By STEPHEN GROVES SIOUX FALLS, S.D.  — President Donald Trump’s plans to kick off Independence Day with a showy display at Mount Rushmore are drawing sharp criticism from Native Americans who view the monument as a desecration of land violently stolen from them and used to pay homage to leaders hostile to native people.

Whicker: Solution to statues is to quit building them

The path between Calvin Griffith’s mind and his voice was always treacherous. In 1982, he proclaimed that Minnesota center fielder Jim Eisenreich was “doomed to be a superstar.” When someone asked Griffith about the nature of his knee surgery, he replied, “They took out the cartridge.” Irrigate that path with alcohol and you get the Waseca Lions Club meeting of 1978. Unsolicited, the Twins’ owner told the group that his family moved the Washington Senators to the Twin Cities because the place wa...

TVR Griffith: Fast, Noisy, Eccentric & British In Every Way!

The TVR Griffith is “British in every way” with a big and loud engine up front!Launch Edition (LE) models are available, but production will be limited to 500.  Like a scene from a Monty Python movie, TVR is not dead yet.
