More Fallout From The So-Called “Curse on Mankato”
by B Wook
Another aspect of the so-called “Curse on Mankato” — it is alleged to have arisen out of the hanging of the Indians here on 26 December 1862, after the Indian War of the previous Summer — is that folks, if anything, are even dumber around here than in other parts of the country.
For example, nobody in the place ever gets a sore head about the dangers of nuclear power…and so for decades now, city officials have countenanced the presence of a large & often smelly, smokey reactor — disguised as a SOYBEAN SMELTER!
Nobody but nobody has ever caught on even to this day & the numbers of two-headed children in South Bend, when noticed, are put down to “the drinking water”….
