Investigative Report: The Many Occupations of Denzel Washington
Ryan Revolver


"Gee! Thanks Ryan for writing an article about me!"


In an attempt to create original content (besides mediocre movie reviews), the time has come to start doing reports of an investigative nature for KLBJ. From time-to-time I ask myself tough questions that (simply) must be answered…


When applying for jobs in these tough economic times, it is important to have a diversified resume that makes you stand out to prospective employers. A multitude of skills will make you appear valuable to hiring managers. Denzel Washington is a good example. Not only has he served his country in multiple wars, but he has the ability to tend to the sick. Mr. Washington is also smart enough to hide his multiple felony convictions (even if he was innocent) off his resume; making him cunning and CEO material.


I am thinking of a number between 1 and 100,000, can you guess it?
