    We like to go to Itasca State Park. We will make sure to bypass Bemidji and the rest of Beltrami County in the future.

    I’d be happy to drive through Beltrami if I had to go that way. Just don’t stop and spend any money there. Let those insular ghouls enjoy an insular economy.

    One of my favorite parts of this story is a quote from Tim Sumner, Beltrami County Commissioner:

    “If you’re not a Native American from this area, we all have origin stories,” said Sumner, a member of the Red Lake Nation. “I think most of the people here today are re-settlers. It just seems un-American to me to say that ‘You’re not welcome.'”
