USFRA. In job interview

Greetings,

During a job interview recently I was asked to explain what USFRA was and in my own words. I landed the job but was curious as to how other members in my shoes would have

briefly explained USFRA as a whole and its many subgroups within. My response was enthusiastic but rather long I felt. I was just wondering what anybody else might have said on the spot, keeping it shorter and more natural.

Column I wrote for Knox News Sentinel about WWE donation to 1st responders

I was asked to make a case that the Knoxville Public Safety Foundation should turn down a $100,000.00 donation pledged by the WWE owner Vince McMahon. It should be declined because the WWE made $35 million from Saudi Arabia, the donation would be made up of Saudi money.

Obviously many Americans believe the Saudi Arabia government was behind 9/11 attacks that murdered over 3000 Americans including many of your first responders.

The WWE was embarrassed by bad publicity it…
