I know this will blow out the format of the space, but I wanted to be sure these images from Thursday’s fire in Minneapolis didn’t scroll off our front page. And you can find Brandt Williams’ story on the fire here.
Nobody died in the blaze, but there was a noticeable sense of loss among people I followed on Twitter today. Some restaurants and shops occupy a larger space in our hearts than I had imagined. Of course, I live in Woodbury. It’s hard to imagine anyone weeping for the loss of an Applebee’s or Chili’s.
