Rybak released from hospital

Former Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak left the hospital today, three days after he had a heart attack while cross country skiing. Since entering the hospital Saturday, doctors at Abbott Northwestern Hospital performed two angioplasty procedures and inserted six stents.

A statement from a spokesman says Rybak will be recuperating for the next couple of weeks, but expects to begin work after that. Rybak was scheduled to start this week as executive director of Generation Next, a Minneapolis-based education group that works to narrow the achievement gap.
