Letter: U of M has not been a good neighbor
To the editor, This is not about being a good neighbor. This is about power and greed. In 1940 the U.S. government had acquired over 5,000 acres in Dakota County for an ammunition plant which was in operation only a short while. The University of Minnesota bought 5,000 acres for...
