Bus Rides, Lawn Care, and Phone Repair

As noted on Powerline, Mayor R.T. Rybak says that Minneapolis is a "safe city for those not involved in high risk lifestyles." Such risky lifestyles have included lawn care, riding a bus, sleeping at home, eating in a steakhouse, and now...

A Qwest Communications employee working on a telephone service box was shot
twice about noon Tuesday in north Minneapolis, police said.

The man was able to return to his van in the 4500 block of Bryant
Avenue N. and call police. Spokesman Ron Reier said the man was semi-conscious
when police arrived. He was taken to North Memorial Medical Center in
Robbinsdale and was expected to survive, Reier said. Police did not release his
name.

Reier said police suspect the shooting happened during a robbery
because they couldn't find the man's wallet.

Remember when the falling off the telephone pole was the most dangerous thing about the job of telephone repair?

If he had only been armed at the time, none of this would have happened!
