Your Umbrella Blocks My Sunshine

I rarely agree with Ol' Nick, but when I do, I do:
I liked it better when our mayors used to get on each other's nerves and take potshots at each other's burg. Now, it's all sweetness and light. The Brother was even quoted in the newspaper as saying that Minneapolis and St. Paul are each other's "best friend."Best friend?" Watch out, Little Brother. That's what somebody always calls someone in a mob movie right before they end up in a river.

It isn't natural for rivals to be best friends. These cities are supposed to battle each other for the spotlight and publicity and tax dollars. Sid Hartman used to call St. Paul "East Berlin," and he's still mad that the NHL is playing in St. Paul.
