A Boston broker tells a fair-weather story

I don’t know how this conversation started, but as I was having drinks with a Back Bay condo broker and a Seaport agent the topic came up on how to deal with a bigot.

One of the real estate agents mentioned, apparently a true story, he heard which I would like to share with you.

One night when Al Roker was still a young meteorologist in Cleveland, one evening news anchor, Doug Adair, was swatted on the head by a homeless African American man outside the studio. After the broadcast the following day, Adair asked Roker. “Al, I don’t know if you heard, but last night after the 11 o’clock news one of your people attacked me.” Everyone in hearing distance drew a shocked breath, however, Roker turned to him and asked, “Doug, why would a weatherman attack you?”

And that, my readers, how you deal with conflict, and it’s how he is one of the most beloved network fixtures.
