Why do we love open houses and State Fairs at News Cut? Because we get a chance to be reminded that there are people out there who actually listen and read our stuff. Interesting people. Smart people. People with their own stories to tell if only there were a — oh, I don’t know — blogger, perhaps, who specializes in telling their stories.
Here’s how some people spent their Sunday afternoon.

Bob Collins has been with Minnesota Public Radio since 1992, emigrating to Minnesota from Massachusetts. He was senior editor of news in the ’90s, ran MPR’s political unit, created the MPR News regional website, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day laments that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
NewsCut is a blog featuring observations about the news. It provides a forum for an online discussion and debate about events that might not typically make the front page. NewsCut posts are not news stories.
