Web Fun: 'Like' Lakeville Patch on Facebook, Destroy My Co-Workers

How you can help me destroy and humiliate the fine, upstanding people who help make the Dakota County Patches what they are.

My fellow Patch editors in the south suburbs of Dakota County are some of the nicest, most inherently decent, upstanding professionals I have ever had the privilege to call peers.

I must destroy them all. Yes, destroy them.

"Like" Lakeville Patch on Facebook

Each Patch has a Facebook fan page where people who have clicked "like" on the page can come read the news, talk over issues in town with their neighbors, and even share photos or links.

The HIT LIST (remember, Lakeville Patch is at 694):

It's very nice that you called me lovely. But "As was foretold by the prophets"? I believe Apple Valley is going to bring your ego back down to size, sir: http://patch.com/A-t1w6
