Column about Hanks absurdI think Editor Matt Von Pinnon’s column on Sunday, Aug. 19, was absurd. Fargo and West Fargo are turning into major destination points for celebrities and tourists alike. This type of publicity only helps local economies and creates a good buzz to feed our local businesses money to keep their doors open.
I didn’t read anything when Josh Duhamel and his famous wife, Fergie, came to Minot to help raise money for their horrific flood. I didn’t read anything asking them to go back to Hollywood. Also, when the movie “Fargo” opened at the Fargo Theatre, I didn’t read that they sold out and to stay away from this downtown haven.
I just think someone may be a little jealous that he didn’t get to meet his favorite celebrity at his favorite local diner.
