Loren Martell just left me a phone message request. He asked if I would tell my readers that it was the Duluth Reader not him who chose the Title of his most recent column. In the Reader its “The Public be Damned.” That phrase, however, was only intended as a subheading which had a longer handle. Loren is a bit miffed as he regards the title as a little less subtle than he prides himself on being.
Having just watched the Business Committee meeting in question on Youtube ( I was out of town when it took place ) I can attest that Loren’s story is faithful to the events he scrupulously lays out.
