For those unfamiliar with North Minneapolis (NoMi) there is no place where Colfax intersects with (West) Broadway. Al Flowers loves to constantly insert himself into North Minneapolis matters but, well, he lives in SOUTH Minneapolis (SoMi) and this is one of the times it really showed.
Other than that, I'm told...
Al "I Am The Community" Flowers is sticking to his grammar guns, and insisting on the phrase "medium income" rather than "median." He also accused Rybak of not being willing to debate. Gee, I seem to recall there was an incident where Rybak was doing a press conference in North Minneapolis, and got verbally heckled and driven off by Reverend Al MacAfee and...
Wait for it.
Wait for it.
So why should Rybak debate Flowers, when Flowers already showed how uncivil Flowers will be to Rybak? Plus there's that thing about Al Flowers shoving City Councilman Don Samuels from behind, and then suing SAMUELS for (alleged) premeditated, first degree toe stepping.
So why would Mayor Rybak come NEAR a back-shoving nutcase like Al Flowers, let alone have a debate with him? When Lennie Chism debates Chipper the Entrepreneurial Squirrel, that might be the day Mayor Rybak should condescend to debate a no-chance loser like Al Flowers, whose actions are so outrageous Flowers borders on being an imaginary character; like the boogey man.
