A day of their own


Sometimes, skimming through the day’s news from two Twitter accounts, my Google reader, paper newspapers, 100+ emails, and — of course — the Daily Planet, I don’t get all the way to the end of a really good story. This morning, reviewing the week for tomorrow’s weekend highlights, I discovered arts editor Jay Gabler’s list of officially-proclaimed days in Minneapolis, from this week’s Tonic Sol-fa Day to the more obscure hemp bread and Buster the Rabbit days. I started thinking—what day would you, our faithful readers, like to have the mayor of Minneapolis or St. Paul proclaim next year?

Send your nominations to us and we’ll pass them along to the mayors. So that they don’t get lost among all the e-mails, put “Official Day” in the subject line, or enter a comment below, with “I want to see an official day proclaimed for __________ because ….” Be sure to include your name and e-mail address for follow-up.
