Matt writes stories from Minneapolis, chiefly about crime, but has also told readers about a dying man who recovered his stolen bicycle so he could pass it on to his children; a house built so well it doesn’t need a furnace; a man who died a virtual stranger in his own neighborhood, despite having lived a full life; and shortcomings in the city’s public auctions process. He once wrote a poem about the weather. And the newspaper published it.
