Profoundly Historic Artist Home Threatened By Corrupt "Development" Practices

The historic home of Pauline Fjelde, creator of the Minnesota state flag, is being threatened with demolition.
A mindless "developer" thinks he needs the space for parking, even though the entire Minneapolis community is against this action and the proposed store will likely go out of business, being that the huge Midtown Global shopping market is only 2 blocks away.

I'd like to use this space to show a visual study of the area.

Update Christmas eve 2009. The developer somehow scammed his way into an emergency demolition order and destroyed the house, along with a trunk full of important historic artifacts, still inside.
