  1. What?!?!?!? Where can I sign up to buy land for $500 per acre?

  2. Itasca County, apparently, if you jibber-jabber about building a steel plant.

  3. Heck, give them the land for free if necessary with conditions that they have a certain number of full time jobs paying a wage above a certain level for a certain period of time.

  4. “. . . a certain number of full time jobs paying a wage above a certain level for a certain period of time.”

    How’d that work out with Northwest Airlines?

    Wait . . . Who?

    @cjh:

    Ask one of about 450 people working at the NWA (now Delta) reservation center in Chisholm?

  6. Interesting that “Anonymous” only wants to allow that question to be posed to those specific people.

  7. $1,000,000,000 / 450 = $2.2 million per.

    Why are some poeple skeptical of government involvement? Hmmmmm
