Yeah, Maybe St. Peter, MN wasn't the best example for a small town that doesn't need 13 separate farmer's markets, and four community theatre troupes. You're right - with the liberal presence and influx of goofy kids, one probably could hock a few yoga mats up there.

Interesting town, that St. Peter. My sis went to Gustavus, and was a student there in 1998, when that freak winter tornado took down all the trees along the bluff, destroying the campus and half of town.

I remember seeing photos of brand new Alumacraft fishing boats stuck 40 feet up in the treetops. Has the town recovered...with the help of yoga mats?
