If you’ve ever tweeted at @mprnews or commented on our Facebook page, I’m one of the (real!) people responding to you. I work mostly behind the scenes editing mprnews.org and trying to find the perfect GIF to tweet. I also do some reporting here and there on people, places and things I find delightful (there are never enough dog stories) or intriguing or thought-provoking. When I find something interesting, I want to tell the world about it. That’s my goal here – what’s something interesting I can share with you today?
