Speaking of Jerry Springer................................................( you'll love this )
Back in the early 60's, I was working in Cincinnati for Yellow Freight as a "city man" while I was on lay-off from my road job; at the time, guess who the mayor of Cincinnati was ? Jerry Springer ! Anyway, being the mayor, Jerry had a city owned car; one day a Cincinnati cop chased a "perp" across the suspension bridge into Newport , KY; while he was in Newport, he notices the "mayor's car parked.................in front of a "cat-house"; he gets out, checks things out, and catches "the mayor" just pulling his pants back up. True story ! ( The newspapers had a field day with it ! )
I often thought it would be fun to get on his stupid show and ask him about it.
But I have to tell you this about Jerry; he isn't stupid; after all the "flap" over the "whore-house episode", he tried to run for Governor; that didn't work, so he convinced WLW to make him the evening news anchor; that DID work ! After a few years (and making big bucks, he announces he's getting this "show" on radio in Chicago; even commuted back & forth for a year or so. Then he gets on TV
..............and the guy's making MILLIONS ever since.
I've even met the guy; he's very personable; easy to talk to; but he wanted to get rich and he has ! So at least he's successful !
