If you’re heading to the Minnesota State Fair tomorrow (Wednesday) and Thursday, I hope you’ll stop by the MPR booth at the corner of Judson and Nelson (just follow the pork chop smog).
I’ll be pushing the MPR merchandise from 1-9 p.m., while watching the acts my pals at The Current have planned for the stage. Stop by and chat. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry, we’ll try to figure out why I’m not on a scavenger hunt list this year. And you can tell me weird stories that’ll end up in a blog post.
Posting will be a little light tomorrow and Thursday.
Now, just so reading this post hasn’t been a complete waste of your time, here’s a little tip or two on taking pictures at the Fair at night.

About the blogger
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.
