This isn't news: Four people near Park Rapids were busted for a pretty big pot-growing operation. Well it's news, but nothing unique. People are busted for growing pot every day and no one really cares. Pot, you say? Boring.

So how does the Star Tribune make the story maybe slightly a tiny bit more interesting? With this killer lead:
Smoking dope became pervasive in the '60s, and now two people in their 60s are under arrest in connection with an extensive marijuana-growing operation in northern Minnesota.
Huh?

So if CP folk were busted for being mobsters running the streets of downtown Minneapolis, would it be more newsworthy because many of us are under 30 and the Roaring 20s was a big time for prohibition gangsters? Doubt it.
