Punished: White landlords in DL who refused to rent to black woman

According to a Star Tribune story by Paul Walsh, the landlords -- Pearl Beck, 92, and her son, Gregory Beck, 51, both of Detroit Lakes -- agreed to the penalty as part of a settlement filed in federal court Thursday in Minneapolis.
