Officials are guessing up to 1 million people will be in town this week.
A little under 7,000 people call the city “home.”

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.
