The private announcement was shared on Twitter by Rachel Stassen-Berger, who writes for the St. Paul Pioneer Press. I've reached out to the representative to verify that he is the one who typed out these wise words (judging from his matching tweet on the subject, it's probably him).


Thanks for your service to humanity, Rachel. And thank you for your wise words, Mr. Garafalo. Please accept my friend request. I can use some more humor like your in these depressing times.
