“I worked at WICD-TV and WCIA-TV as a student to get my size 10 in the broadcasting door. I remember rushing to Garcia’s Pizza before work to get that famed gutbuster slice, totally oblivious to traffic.

“Guess what happened? I got a ticket for jaywalking, and the driver was not cited. After that, I started paying better attention while walking around campus and learned to cross at the crosswalk.”
