Reader's View: Flee Duluth, which has become a little Russia
Things won’t get any better there, I fear, and there is a great big United States outside of Duluth where transplants will be welcomed, not to mention where there is better weather and lower taxes.
I have a suggestion for Ben Fye and other residents opposed to a hotel proposed to be located near them (“ Duluth Heights residents express dismay at prospect of hotel as neighbor ,” Oct. 12).
My suggestion is they move, like I did, from my hometown of Duluth, which has become a little Russia. Things won’t get any better there, I fear, and there is a great big United States outside of Duluth where transplants will be welcomed, not to mention where there is better weather and lower taxes.
Give up living on the Tundra.
Letters to the editor are a critical part of the community dialogue, and the News Tribune attempts to publish all letters of opinion meeting our requirements.
Letters are limited to 300 words, must be the original work of the author and must be exclusive to the News Tribune. Letters are edited for style, space, accuracy and civility. Letter writers are limited to one published submission every 30 days.
With rare exceptions, the News Tribune does not publish poetry; letters that are anonymous, libelous, or attack other writers; consumer-complaint letters; thank-you letters or letters generated by political or special-interest campaigns.
We will consider exclusive local view columns of about 600 words or fewer. Authors should possess unique insights, and their commentaries should demonstrate greater knowledge of their subject than letters.
