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 retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
