Where was the blocks-long traffic jam on University Avenue in St. Paul trying to get to today?
It was almost as if Porky’s, the long-time burger joint, was lying in state as people came to pay their last respects. It will close on Sunday.
Those who didn’t want to wait in a long line of cars, waited in a long line of people instead.
