Fresh off his tearful Oprah appearance and a meeting with Evander Holyfield, former boxer Mike Tyson met with Mayor Daley to discuss youth violence, among other things.
In a post-meeting interview at City hall, Tyson said he'd love to help Chicago address its problems and that he knows well what gets too many kids into violence during their teen years. "I'm that guy," he said.
Hmm. We need all the help we can get, obv. But this seems desperate and somewhat comical. What next? What other hot-tempered former celebrity can get in on this? Do 15 year old kids know or care who Tyson was?
