Mayor Rybak declares "Uncle Al Day" in Minneapolis
class=img_thumbleft>Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak has declared today, April 9, 2007, "Uncle Al Day" to honor 38-year Strib veteranAl Sicherman
. Sicherman, who would refer to himself as "Uncle Al," wrote the "Tidbits" column, dispensing commentary on processed food packaging and marketing.
"Al combined his gifts for arcane computer knowledge, brilliant command of the language, kitchen expertise, and—as Uncle Al, the weekly columnist—self-deprecating humor to enrich readers beyond what most of us realize," Mayor Rybak's proclamation said.
Kudos to Uncle Al.
