Elite Exclusive Lakeshore Mecca Wants to Be Destination, kinda: Tales From Normal, Mn.: FICTION
Just got the text today from the guys up in Normal, Mn. at Betty Lou's Cafe, that to their surprise, the exclusive high end community on the shores of Lake Winnewonka, a Lake where only private beaches are allowed, and there is no public access, supposedly since one can never be too careful of foreign crabs on the bottoms of boats from other cities of the frozen tundra, and besides, folks of the lower classes just do not have the right stuff to spend time on a lake, and only a brief view from a far is worthy---- yes, those very same folks, in the midst of an economic crisis of a lifetime, have discussed in city councils, the necessity to become a "destination city" where those very same "foreigners" who had been so despised for generations, will be lured to come and dispose of their cash, and then leave after spending in designated resort hotels and mini casinos.... The guys at Betty Lou's are wondering whether there might be an opportunity to create an upscale bait store, where nothing but the finest bait would be offered....stay tuned as I follow this story.
