Steve McLister, the Trib’s publisher is leaving. When I wrote a column talking about how the poobah’s at the Trib were fly by night residents Mr. McLister took umbrage and told me he planned to live in Duluth a long time.
A number of Red Plan critics met with him last summer. He reminded me of the tough talking, butch cut, cartoon editor of Peter Parker’s cartoon newspaper in the Spider Man comics. He told us he thought the Red Plan might end up being a “trainwreck” and how he wanted to put a televised forum of pro and con Red Plan spokesman on the tube. Nothing came of that. Now he’s leaving. Too late.
