Editorial: Spare a minute to pay tribute this weekend
When 5 p.m. rolls around on Friday, thousands of Minnesotans will push back from their desks, start their cars and head for the lake. Others will start making plans to hit weekend sales or to work on projects around the house. It's the first long weekend of the summer. It's a chance to fire up the grill and relax or an opportunity to get things done.
For many, that's all it is. And that's too bad.
