Someone Please Hire This Guy

The video you hopefully just watched has received 4 million hits on YouTube after only just 2 days.  It also seems this video was successful in landing this guy a job.  Ted Williams, the homeless man featured in the video above, was offered a spot on a local radio show and also a dream job with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Hold up, it gets better.  It seems the Cavaliers also bought this man a house.  Props to Mr. Williams for remaining clean for 2 years and having the chance to live out his dream.  Also, props to the radio show in Columbus called ” Dave and Jimmy” for changing this guys life.

    TSA stopped Ted Williams from getting on his flight from Columbus to NYC. No appearance on “The Today Show” on Thursday morning. No visit to 92 year-old Mom in Brooklyn. See, he didn’t have ‘proper ID’, said the TSA. So Ted spent today at the Columbus Courthouse, trying to figure out how to get a copy of his birth certificate. Obviously he did have some form of ID, but the TSA wasn’t satisfied with it. The man has been homeless for four years. OK, America – What are we going to do about this out-of-control phony security dance? These blockheads, however, are typical of our society. Follow the little rule book, and throw common sense out the window. Wrong. No little rule book takes away YOUR OBLIGATION TO THINK FOR YOURSELF. There are times you have to make an exception. That’s “the exception that proves the rule”. It’s like the traffic cop giving the mother of the little girl in a coma in Las Vegas a ‘jaywalking ticket’ – gave it to her right in the hospital. Or the policeman giving a ticket to the Dad who raced to the hospital while his wife’s water broke in the car on the way to the hospital in New Hampshire. RETRAIN EVERYBODY — OR FIRE THEM.
