Anyway, here's what was said about the disadvantaged business rally, and I didn't bother to currect the typos.
Corners of Plymouth and Sheridan Avenue North in front of Uncle Bills in Minneapolis. 2426 Plymouth Ave North, 55411.
(JNS wishes to note: This intersection ACTUALLY EXISTS. I just thought it was important to mention that. Obviously Al Flowers wasn't involved in organizing this)
