MPR’s Tom Weber has — perhaps unwittingly, perhaps not — reignited my fire to reintroduce an idea I had for News Cut when we started it last winter: the two-minute tale. OK, this tale, perhaps, isn’t quite two minutes, but you’ll get the idea of the kind of thing I’m looking for. Tom did an excellent job.
You are doing interesting things that can be told in two minutes, and told visually. So let me know about it.
