Jeff Zuckerman Redux

From the Star Tribune letters page during the week that led up to the vote on same-sex marriage, which also included the Bradlee Dean prayer debacle and two votes restricting access to abortion:

Photo of letter to the editor: Had I known 30 years ago I'd be moving to a theocracy in Minnesota, I might have moved instead to Saudi Arabia or Alabama. At least the winters there don't last so long. -- Jeff Zuckerman, Minneapolis
I assume this is the same Jeff Zuckerman who wrote a column for the Minnesota Daily in the late 1980s, which was one of the most consistently funny bits of writing I've ever read. (Unfortunately, there's no trace of them anywhere on the interweb.) He's been teaching at Walden University and the University of Minnesota since then.

Thanks, Jeff! You've still got fans here in this cold theocracy-wannabe we live in.

Yes, I'm that Jeff Z. That was I. That used to be me. It was kind of you to write so glowingly of my goofy letter and my past work back when my daughter used to crawl among the staples and dried Grain Belt on the floor of the Daily.

But . . . but . . . who are you?
