A little tip for people, if your family has a history of heart problems and you have chest pains and shortness of breath, call 911. If it's severe enough that you think you should call your wife, it's severe enough that you should also call 911.

R.T., with all due respect, you're supposed to have a heart attack while your in office not when you're done out relaxing skiing!

Umm, chest pains and shortness of breath and a family history? Extremely lucky this isn't an obituary. If ANY of you have these symptoms, call 911 immediately. A false alarm is much better than a winter funeral.

Best wishes to you, Mr. Rybak. Thank you for revitalizing Minneapolis and reminding us to strive for greatness, instead of whining about government and shirking responsibility.
