I did something recently that I said I would never do. I attended a Vikings pre-season game at U.S. Bank Stadium and rode the light rail transit to get there. Three things I swore were boondoggles. First, pre-season football is like watching paint dry. It doesn’t count and, well, it’s boring. Second, I had no intention of ever attending a game in the $1.2 billion taxpayer-subsidized playground...

I have decided to toss all $1 bills out of my wallet and all quarters are immediately banned from my pants pockets. Nickels are gone, too. And that $2 bill on my dresser? It’s history! Why?

When the container is full, I run to my bank and cash them in. Call it mad money. That was until recently when I went to the bank and cashed in the coins. Now I’m just mad. I went to the bank...

As I watch protesters shouting loudly into the TV cameras demanding a $15 an hour wage to flip burgers at McDonald’s, I scratch my head and wonder, “Who are these people?” In the past, a job at any fast-food place was considered an entry-level position, a start to one’s working career. Since when has it become “a...
