Some days are great, others are not...but no matter what twists and turns I encounter, you can be sure I'm going to write about it!

DeRusha Rules!

If you've been reading my posts for a while, you will know that I have been obsessing over WCCO (a local news stations) segment called Good Question. If you are not cool, and you haven't been reading since the beginning, or have forgotten, or are not from MN, Good Question is when a local journalist answers a question submitted by a viewer such as "Why do songs get stuck in our head?" (which was a question I submitted and had answered as a story on the WCCO website (O'Doyle RULES!).
Today, after reading about the horrible bus accident that took place in the outskirts of MN, I decided to email the Good Question people "Why aren't kids mandated to wear seat belts on school buses?"
I was not expecting a response at all...I am numb to not being responded to from the WCCO peeps (it took them almost a month to write up a story about my "songs" question...).
After returning from a going away get-together for a good friend, I was happily greeted by an email from, none other than himself, Jason DeRusha. He is not only the coolest guy (in my biased opinion), but he is also a down to earth funny family man. I feel completely honored that he took the time to answer me...he definitely has a million thumbs-up in my opinion.


  1. So if responding to your e-mail gets me a million thumbs up... does posting a comment on your blog make it go to a Billion?

    Glad to answer your question. Thanks for the kind words.

  2. You just never know! What goes around comes around right?
