You know who we’re talking about: the bathing beauty who still fits into her jeans from high school, the young Marlon Brando lookalike—complete with studded boots and leather jacket.But we’re also talking about that cute technophile peering out behind horn-rimmed glasses and the sophisticated executive with the fitted suit and a snifter of brandy. These are your friends, co-workers, siblings, neighbors, and long-harbored secret crushes.

Let us know which southern Minnesotans keep your heart pounding with their brains, brawn, talent, looks and style. Tell us who gets your juices flowing by submitting the form below. Watch for the results in our Feb. 1 edition of SCENE!

    Hmmmm.... I posted this on Saturday morning, Jan. 5th, right after Soitgoes' comment. It was initially there, but someone decided to remove it?? Well, here it is again - I was just as appalled and disgusted as many of you here who have dignity and decency within you. I wrote: "I am appalled, offended, angry, and quite surprised that this part of the People's Press AND in the COMMUNITY ALERTS. How did this ever get approved? It is about who we most LUST after and how hot, alluring, and arousing they are?? The ones who get our juices flowing?? Really? This is not a risque magazine / newspaper, so I don't see why I would need to read such inappropriateness in a family publication."

    Oh, ok, so Jaci had the courage to admit that SHE is responsible for all of this garbage. To get us thinking of those in our community "who take pride in their physical appearance, being a master of their craft, being intelligent, embracing body art, etc." Really?? Then why all the seductive wording? Disgusting. Wrong. Oh, and this is "The People's Press" the last I looked, not "Entertainment Weekly". No comparison. (Well, at least not in the past.)

    Some one at the Daily must be looking for a new massage parlor [wink]

    ToddVoge, good point and I agree. It obviously isn't a community alert. We took it down and are replacing it with a pull-down ad. Thanks much for your input.

    "We're looking for the southern Minnesota men and women you lust after."

    "They're the wild children of our world, non-conformists who look oh so good breaking the rules."

    Yes, that sounds like so much fun! This is southern Minnesota, not Hennepin Avenue, right?

    I agree with Todd. What a terrible use of a community alert on a what's supposed to be a "legitimate" news site to shill for this drivel, a publication under the same parent company.

    Also, the last I checked, the editor of Time wasn't also the editor of Entertainment Weekly.

    I agree the article is a fun little thing, but having it as "Community Alert" on the homepage of the Daily News seems wrong.

    When you read "Community Alert", one would assume this is something that is a matter of great importance to the community. Something that requires our greatest attention.

    This article is not that.

    If you want to link to articles in the "Scene" from the home page, I can understand that. I would just recommend using the "Community Alert" for true community-wide issues. Use something like "Seen on the Scene" or something like that.

    Thanks all for the comments. I'm the editor responsible for this publication and the "hottie" idea. It's clearly not intended to be anything more than a fun piece that recognizes folks who take pride in their physical appearance, being a master of their craft, being intelligent, embracing body art, etc. It will neither denigrate nor idolize these concepts, merely highlight individuals who embrace and/or enjoy them. Since SCENE is an arts and entertainment publication, this piece falls clearly under the "entertainment" portion. It's nothing more, nothing less, and really, no more an indicator of the type of news we offer on our community sites than Entertainment Weekly is an indicator of the news you find in Time magazine. They both are owned by the same company, that's all.

    I'm sorry, but I'm coming outta retirement this ONE TIME:

    I vote for Emil. I heard he got kicked outta the Brooks because he caused so many heart palpatations, the staff couldn't keep up with all the treatments.

    Dude had so much swag, Carey Grant paid him to stay away from Hollywood.

    Go get'em, Emil. You're looking goooood... [cool]

    I don't care what they write about, I just get choosier about what I read. It's obvious that this site is aimed at people who find yahoo news as an informative and well respected news outlet so why take offense?
    BusRep, no need to outline our schedules and 'social' lives for us, we live them and are fine with them. For some, part of retirement is having time to comment on the current... scene. Besides, I read the remarks as coming from more conservative people, not liberal. You may want to consult Webster's on that one.
    I doubt that anyone here is offended by "beautiful people" but how they are prioritized socially.
    Back to my original point: Don't expect to find high brow, intelligent articles in a kiddie magazine and you'll never be disappointed by content.

    Yep, just the type of childish reponse one would expect from someone who thinks these types of polls serve any valuable purpose.

    PS - this is the type of drivel Liberal Democrats would support. Guess again.

    And, for the record, it's "greet", not "great" and those who receive those social security checks have paid for the right to receive them. Well, the legal ones anyway and not here on a refugee pass.

    Settle down all Liberal Democrats....

    This is just a fun piece. Sorry that you are offended by Beautiful people.

    Read your Book, have some soup and go to bed @ 8 PM.
    But don't forget to wakeup in time to "great" the Mailman and thank him for your SocSec. Check.

    Lighten up...............

    This is disgusting and has no place in a community news environment. Lust is not a behavior we should celebrate.

    Unbelievable. This actually made me feel icky while reading it. Who in their right mind would respond to this request? Let's just all send our diaries from the seventh grade to the Daily News so they know who the hotties are. Who do they have working down there that comes up with this stuff? Yuck.

    THIS is a Community Alert? It's one of the most childish, immature, insignificant can't even think of the rest of the adjectives I'm grasping for, posts I've ever had the misfortune to read. Get a life.
