In Milton's Paradise Lost, the devil says something to the effect of "I would rather rule in hell than serve in heaven." What if that is the attitude of Minneapolis mayor Frey? What if he really doesn't care whether the city rebuilds or not?
In a previous post, I said the Democrat politicians were losing because their cities were being ruined. If all they care about is maintaining power, ruling in hell, as it were, then whether or not businesses rebuild hardly matters. Michael Tracey, an independent journalist, has chronicled the fact that Minneapolis businesses are not rebuilding and stores are still boarded up.
Does this matter to the blue political leaders?
