How to shovel your sidewalk

The flap over Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender’s citations for not shoveling her sidewalk has been the most Minnesotan controversy ever.

First of all, the whole call-the-cops-on-your-neighbor-rather-than-talking-to-them thing is creepy. And oh so Minnesotan.

Now, a south Minneapolis couple has thrown a little passive aggressiveness onto the inferno — a PSA on how to shovel a sidewalk, City Pages says.

Katharine and Craig Brown, who live in the Fulton neighborhood, acknowledge they’re not big fans of the council president, the push for more multi-family homes in the city, or the expansion of bike lanes in Minneapolis.
