Kristin Tillotson, a Star Tribune writer, began an otherwise laudatory snippet Friday, November 1, 2013, about the “Juntos Crecernos”/“Together We Grow” mural at Bloomington Avenue and Lake Street with a biased cultural slam that exposed more about her than about that corner or this community.

The insult to scores of stores, a theatre, a museum, and residents and customers is overwhelming and merits an apology.
