A tank on the streets of a Minnesota town. Not for military maneuvers … but a breakthrough in home demolition. SOUNDBITE: Unidentified local woman, saying (English): "Only in Kasota would they do something like this." SOUNDBITE: Unidentified local man, saying (English): "Oh this is great. I'd like to see it more often." SOUNDBITE: Unidentified local woman, saying (English): "Cool." SOUNDBITE: Unidentified local man, saying (English): "It's the greatest thing in the world." The 150-year-old home was set for demolition - and that's when Tony Burglum, owner of Drive-a-Tank rolled in. SOUNDBITE: Tony Burglum, owner of Drive-a-Tank, saying (English): "Somebody was going to do it with a piece of machinery anyway, so we figured we might as well add some entertainment and show you guys what tanks can do." It took less than half an hour to level the house - and a lot longer to clean up the debris. Tara Cleary, Reuters.
