Thanks for the clarifications- my info is all second hand at this point- I
think I captured the flavor of the decline, though. Maybe it wasn't one of
everything on the big floor, but it was a _lot_ of cool stuff!
And as a boy who grew up in south Minneapolis, St. Paul is just that place
across the river where the streets don't make sense anymore <grin>. (for
non-locals, streets in Minneapolis are generally numeric or in alphabetical
order, in St. Paul they are generally all named, and if it's by any kind of
system, I've not figured it out in my 40 years...)
