Dear Listeners,

Remember Moises "Mighty Mo" Orozco, the 10-year-old boxing champ (Off-Ramp, 12-9-06)? Mighty Mo told me his dream was to qualify for the 2016 Olympics.

It turns out somebody from the SoCal Committee for the Olympic Games was listening to Off-Ramp, too! The group is trying to bring the 2016 Olympics to LA, and asked Mighty Mo to be a spokesman. I'm thinking of it as a good omen for Mighty Mo ... and LA's chances.

-John Rabe.
