We who reside in the rest of Minnesota, which the media refers to as “Greater Minnesota,” (for obvious reasons to my mind), further shorten up Minneapolis and St. Paul and refer to the Twin Cities simply as “The Cities.” We are united with the people of “the Cities” in our belief that while brief visits to that other part of state are fine from time to time, you would have to either be a little stupid, or at the very least, financially hard up, to actually live there.

“They are nicknamed the Twin Cities. They are divided by the Mississippi River, and united by the belief that the inhabitants of the other side of the river are inferior.”
