My name is Katherine Kersten and I am writer I have written for the Startribune newspaper, “Wall Street Journal,” “The Weekly Standard,” “First Things,” and other publications. I had a column at the Startribune for eight years, it was mainly about my experiences and interests. Minnesota is my favorite place to write about because I was born in Amboy, MN on November 12 1963. I graduated from Amboy High in 1980 where I was the editor of my school paper. After high school I attended the University of St.Cloud where I studied literature. I have written may articles on the conflict about the North Dakota mascot. I think that the mascot should not be changed because it is a mascot that looks proud and is not degrading Native Americans.
