      That's an interesting point that most people (myself included) did
      not know. He was indeed from a middle class family, the son of a
      police officer. I would bet most people who didn't know him just
      assumed he was a "born street thug".

      It was reported that the team, and some of his teammates, had tried
      to convince him to relocate to the DC area, to escape the crowd he
      had been hanging with. But I guess he loved South Florida, and
      resisted. Most players, in fact, reside somewhere other than in
      their team's city. Nothing unusual about that.

      D&C can certainly be over-the-top, and often political. But I guess
      drive time guys are expected to be controversial. I find them to be
      sometimes annoying, but often entertaining and informative. At worst
      it gives me something to yell at on the way to work. ;o)

      Washe a kid from the 'hood, who couldn't escape that lifestyle. He
      hadsupposedly been threatened recently, and they were discussing
      whetheror not this was a planned attack. They probably could have
      waited toexplore this point, but I guess it's their job.fdb--- In
