Just four more days until Netflix uploads the third season of House of Cards, the Kevin Spacey series of political intrigue and lust for power.
Here. Entertain yourself while you wait with the story of Frank Underwolf wanting to take over the white house of bricks.
Spoiler alert: Underwolf doesn’t get a congressman drunk and then pretend it’s suicide, nor push a reporter in front of an oncoming train.
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.
