On Wednesday, City Pages published Minnesota Hall of Shame: The infamous locals we'd rather not claim. Throughout the day, readers provided a good number of additional assholes, villains, and monsters they believe belong on the list. Below, we've rounded up a selection of those responses.

From reader Michael Lee:

If you’re holding the same standard in which you held Laura Ingalls Wilder, then why not include Judy Garland, who has done blackface on more than one occasion?

Jeff Schalles:

I'd have put Katherine Kersten at the top of this list. She's just plain nuts. 

Kathleen Collins:

You forgot T. Eugene Thompson.

Keith McCarron:

Mike Freeman. The DA defender of killer cops. He even wasn't sure about George Floyd.

John Marchand:

What about Gary Anderson?

Michael Burg:

Tom Petters? Alexander Ramsey? Henry Sibley?

Colin Dunn:

Add Charles Fremont Dight to your list: professor of eugenics in the 1930s, huge fan of Hitler (he even wrote to Hitler and received a reply), and he lived in a tree house in South Minneapolis.

Joe Yurecko:

How about add the coward who wrote this article to the list, since they're toi [sic] ashamed to use their name. Mike Mullen perhaps. Gotta love these CP commies spewing their vitriol as usual. Lots of jealousy directed towards others with more than them, sad losers.
