St. Paul Factoids

I found a St. Paul visitor's guide last week. Here are four things I did not know:

1) St. Paul has the largest Hmong population of any U.S. city. Apparently the Hmong New Year celebration is a big event.

2) The American Swedish Institute is housed in the former home of publisher Swan Turnblad.

3) The ABA basketball team ("working man's basketball") is called-- get this-- the Ripknees. I suppose that is slightly more endearing than "Torn ACL Court Pentet."

4) The website of the Segway tour company is HumanOnaStick.com
