It's interesting how a paper owned and run by Glen Taylor, a billionaire urban businessman and former Republican state legislator, is so given to promoting the myth of a "dying" rural Minnesota.

This is precisely the sort of myth used by Taylor's fellow Republican .001 percenters in the West Metro to promote an us-versus-them culture war paranoia, in order to convince rural Minnesotans that giving up their rights and their land to out-of-state and here-today-gone-tomorrow corporate interests is The Only Way to "preserve traditional values".
