    CNN when you hire me I have two requests. 1. I want a desk by the window. 2. I want to sit next to Soledad O'Brien. She is hot! Oh I almost forgot! For lunch I want a Cherry Dr Pepper, a roastbeef sandwitch from the deli in the Publix grocery store (if your in Chicago, Publix is like Jewels grocery store and just as expensive!) and a lifetime supply of Mr. T cereal. Thanks!
