Mayor 101: Is Crowd Surfing on the Final?

Former Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak is back – back in school and back in the news – after suffering a major heart attack last month. This spring he’s teaching a joint course on Monday nights called Mayor 101, while he serves as a distinguished visiting member of the Humphrey School of Public Affairs and the College of Design

Yesterday was the first official class, but Rybak joined a handful of students for an impromptu discuss at the Kitty Cat Klub last Monday (the original first day of class) when the University closed campus due to the extreme cold.
