Excellent. I was hoping that you'd provide additional support for my misgivings.

(And yes, it's my impression that we don't usually spell it "Saint Paul." But then, the whole proposal strikes me as tone deaf, given that the entire state is used to referring to "the Cities.")

Our municipal tourist campaign is downright embarrassing. By removing the hyphen, we're now more united? Silly groupthink--from a group with a tin ear for slogans at that.

As for Hopkins, I'd call it "a town just west of the Cities."

Oh, one other piece of Minnesota miscellanea... The city has always been spelled St. Paul. The old hotel downtown is the Saint Paul, and the newly-merged-with-Travelers insurance company is The Saint Paul Company.
