There’s a beautiful symmetry in Boyd Huppert’s KARE 11 story last night about the final goodbyes between Erling and Emmett, the now six-year-old boy and his former 91-year-old neighbor.

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.
