It’s easy to find references to city desks in the Twin Cities, Greater Minnesota, and in the Dakotas. Look beyond that, though, and anything you might find in reference to city desks elsewhere in the rest of the U.S. has to do with journalism.
Andy Sturdevant: 'City desk' in the trades: Is it a regional term?
Tunheim’s conclusions carry some weight, considering that he has been, for almost two decades, chair of a special board that reviewed all records relating to the assassination.
They misrepresent their accreditations. They misrepresent their transferability of credits – they say they transfer when they don’t. They misrepresent job placement rates – they inflate them; they say that they’re much higher than they actually are, and they do the same thing with regard to starting salaries.

Under terms of its lease with the city, which technically owns Orchestra Hall, the Orchestral Association is obligated to show by Dec. 1 that it has been — and will be — serving “the public interest of the City of Minneapolis to promote and provide for performing arts in the City.” But given the ongoing lockout and the silence in the hall, how can the MOA meet the requirements of the lease?

Andy Sturdevant: I imagined telling the leadership of the Minneapolis Institute of Art in the 1910s that the district responsible the town’s spectacular growth — the source of all that flour money that made it possible for the art museum in this very young city to purchase works by European painters — would leave behind a set of ruins as spectacularly decayed as the ruins in Alexander Nasmyth’s painting. I’m sure they wouldn’t have believed it.
