A Star Tribune story is expected soon. Major local television stations would be well-advised to plan accordingly and--as they so often do--go chase some images and sound bites about "Pamiko-gate" in the wake of more detailed print media coverage. That's not a criticism of television stations, except maybe KSTP. Not everybody can read the whole story on a hunk of dead tree. Some people need the 30-second version.
But imagine how Paul Koenig must feel right now, somewhere in his Afton mansion with FOUR WASHING MACHINES IN THE BASEMENT. Today, Jordan Neighborhood super citizen Megan Goodmundson exchanged text messages with Paul Koenig--as she put it--"ala Remaro." (Click here for an explanation of that phrase)
Here's how the conversation went...
Megan: You're a star on citypages.com. Congrats! Baby Jesus would be proud.
Paul Koenig: Who is this?
Megan: I'm a pissed off northsider. Sitting here with johnny northside. Reading. Laughing.
Paul Koenig: Ah another man behind the curtain. Interesting how n. Mpls problem issues have increased since my departure. Obviouly (sic) I was doing something right at the time
Megan: DREAM ON DREAM HOMES! Wait til the attack dogs from the Star Trib that we sic'd on you draw blood this weekend. Baby Jesus knows the truth.
