    Run DMC (Rev Run) was a guest speaker at CGA today....lectured son's English class on the similarities between rap and poetry. Gotta love the unexpectedly unique opportunities that son is being presented with! :cool:

    HAHAHA, that would have been fun! Who does your son have? Dr. Gonzalez? That seems like a thing he would do.

    I love Rev Run! How lucky those kids are. Now that my kids are gone, I don't have an excuse to watch Run's House. He always finishes his show with a moral lesson.

    One of my kids was at the Newark Airport and found herself waiting on the curb for a shuttle standing next to Darryl. She was a little star-struck but said he was so nice as a bunch of people recognized him and asked for photos and his autograph.

    officer - your comment makes me wonder if you know who Rev Run is...

    To answer your question--probably not in the same way ya'll do. I haven't seen Rev Run on tv, I just remember Run DMC when I was younger. Is it the same person? If not, oops "just pay not attention to the "woman" behind the curtain". I'm a little behind the times when it comes to current pop culture...sorry.

    I will ask, but that name sounds familiar! Son is pretty closed lipped about stuff these days. I have to dig around very carefully for info. I think he has a lot on his mind. On a happy note, he was contentedly munching on the goodies we sent him the other day. The sugar high helped loosen his lips a bit last night. :wink:

    officer - same one!

    He now has a terrific show (on MTV, I think) though it may be in re-runs. He is really a Reverend and very much a family man 5 or 6 kids (yes, all by the same woman!). Though he lives in a rather plush home in NJ; he works hard at keeping his kids very grounded. His show always ends with him soaking in a bubble bath, recounting the dilemma of the day and a really nice moral lesson.
    He is a self-made man who came out of inner city poverty and made a good life for himself and his family.
