    Many city people have an arrogant attitude about other places, even when they have never spent any time there they 'know' what it's all about.

    I'm sorry, did the hillbilly say something? I was too busy sipping my fine Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee.
    I prefer boldness to a distinctive floral bouquet.
    More of a Sumatra or Timor kind of guy, eh? I love varietals from that region, but I try not to make them daily drinkers. That way they're more of a rare treat.

    Hooray for coffee snobbery on PP.O!

    Well, it's easy to say Fargo doesn't have any of those problems... because Fargo doesn't have anything.
    They have me.
    What else is there.

    Someday you must make it to this fine city C Mac... you might be surprised.
    I'm looking to move to any city other than NYC....
    Yeah, when are we going to get some updates on that? Is PDX still in the mix?

    Supposedly, they were referring to the movie Fargo, not the wonderful city that I live in, but I don't think they thought this one out too well...
    Here is the article in the Fargo Forum regarding it:
    http://www.in-forum.com/articles/rss.cfm?id=213526

    You wish it was Fargo.
    Then you might actually have a successful college football team.

    In the end, I would not care if they made that comment in the context of the metro area not being like the town I live in.

    Hell, Fargo should make a counter-ad that says it's not the crime ridden, welfare laden, traffic congested clusterf%$k twin cities.
    Lighten up!
    :P
    North Dakota should send all Minnesotans and the Coen Bros thank you cards every day for the publicity they got from the movie.
    Minnesotans had to put up with the brunt of the stereotypes while Fargo just kept getting name recognition.


    As Cole said in the article, any mention of Fargo is positive as long as it isn't about death or disaster.
    That is a good attitude to have.


    Traffic and clusterF is just part of living in a city of the size of MPLS/StP.
    And murder, crime,pollution,gangs etc.

    I would take Fargo any day of the week and twice on Sundays.
    Never said anything about your values.
    I just made the point that everyone has a different way to float their boat.
