I grew up just outside Detroit and have worked on the radio ever since I was 19.
I'm told it was an inevitable career choice as my mom has pictures of me as a kid turning any household item into a microphone (experience shows that big wooden soup spoons work best).
I attended college studying theatre and political science at the University of Michigan. I could not be happier to be back on the air in Cleveland!
I enjoy green shoes, zipper hoodies, chicken wings, green olives, beer, McClure's spicy pickles and games.
When I finally grow up one day, I want to own a small French Piano Bar and be skilled in the art of tasting fine wines.
This dude at the park was claiming to be Barack Obama, but also kinda Jesus. And he tried to kidnap these two kids....
I mean, candy is usually a better route, BUT SURE, let's give "I am Jesus Obama. Come with me if you want to live" a try.
BUT WAIT, here is my favorite quote from this story. The childrens' mother Sharaya Smith, who thanks a group of teens for saving her kids from Bienvenido Cintron (aka Obama Jesus), noted that Cintron came into the park shouting, "I am Barack Obama. I have been sent by God to rid the world of drug dealers and prostitutes!"
Smith said she could tell "something was definitely off with him."
Ahem... DO YOU THINK WOMAN?? YES, I WOULD THINK CLAIMING TO BE JESUS OBAMA WOULD BE A GOOD SIGN THAT THE DUDE IS "OFF."
Anyway, he in jail. Kids are fine. Obama and Jesus keep their fairly untainted names, and a group of teens are heroes. Happy is as happy does. Or something.
