In an otherwise straightforward news story on city planning (“‘Nodes’ part of St. Paul’s plan to grow the city,” June 9), Frederick Melo asserted, “St. Paul needs and wants to grow.”
Hmm. Why? And according to whom?
I’ve lived in St. Paul for more than 60 years. I’d say the city is big enough. In fact, let’s build a wall along our entire border and keep would-be re-settlers out.

I have been attending DFL district and state conventions off and on for about four decades. The last one (June 1, 2 and 3 in Rochester) was no improvement over the past conventions. A few delegates select candidates to be endorsed and insist the rest of us must support and vote for their chosen candidates.
The party wants our donations, our time but not our choice of a candidate to vote for. No wonder the party has trouble holding on to voters or getting people to vote.
