Good News for a Blue State

According to the Minnesota Monitor,

A new survey finds that Minnesota is one the most popular destinations for U.S. Muslims. The state comes in at number12 of the top dozen states that are home to more than 80 percent U.S. Muslims... According to the survey, Minnesota is home to 2.8 percent of U.S. Muslims... Ethnic break down [sic] of U.S. Muslims shows that 5.7 percent of respondents are of African descent. But the number is likely higher in Minnesota, where more than half of its estimated 150,000 Muslim population comes from Somalia and Ethiopia.
Now if only some of these new Americans would trouble themselves to open a few restaurants in Northfield. I mean, yeah, vote for DFL'ers like Keith Ellison, and send your kids to school, and do all that stuff, but let's think about my palate for a change, okay?
