Menage a Fraud

Minneapolis and St. Paul are endowed with amazing histories, almost on a par with Chicago or New York. With a year off, I'd read everything I could on the Twin Cities (and, yes, the parasitical suburbs) and write a short history of 'em. The story of Louis Menage, real-estate developer and swindler, would be a prominent part of the section on the City of Lakes in the Gilded Age. Thank god nothing so unseemly happens nowadays here in the Mill City. Right, Mr. Pohlad? Right?
