Finally, some good news.
And it all happened courtesy of our 415 Media favorite, Stanley Roberts.
Roberts, KRON's "People Behaving Badly" gadfly correspondent was perusing East Oakland for a story about illegal dumping sites and came upon a homeless man, a guy by the name of Marcus Malone.
Marcus Malone? That Marcus Malone? the former original drummer with Santana? No way, must be a joke.
Pretty soon Roberts did some digging. He told Malone he'd get back to him.
Pretty soon the facts checked out.
Roberts then, through a buddy at KRON, was able to get in touch with Santana himself and reunited the pair.
Both Roberts and Santana appeared on CNN Sunday. We don't normally get all teary-eyed over stories but this one made us feel a whole lot better. Here's hoping Mr. Malone, who figuratively speaking, may have hit the life lottery, is able to get back to living a healthy and productive life.
And to Robert's kind scoop, finally, a person, behaving rather "nicely."
