A- On Day 3 of his drive from Miami to Seattle Holy Crap stopped by the MLK Memorial in Atlanta and this morning, fittingly, he shares the photos.
I stood there, staring at his resting place. Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. 1929 – 1968. “Free at last, Free at last, Thank God Almighty I’m Free at last.” The words roll through my mind and I hear King’s voice loud and commanding saying this. Goosebumps. I shudder at the strength a man who passed away nearly 30 years before I was ever born was able to have on me. This man, which I will never know or meet was in my mind, yelling his declaration of freedom.B- Finding the unexpected is one of Miami Favs' favs.

The station wasn't even on the air yet and the salary was ridiculously low -- I had made more running a chairlift in Santa Fe -- but my ego won out and I took it. A few weeks later I found a little house to rent on the shores of Crystal Lake and in the middle of October, the station -- WBNZ -- went on the air. (I remember that my first news broadcast covered the election of Pope John Paul II.)H- If you're familiar with Miami-Dade Democrat Fredrica Wilson, you'll LOL at Eye on Miami's post this morning.
