"You knock me down, I fall down on my back, I look up, get up and go up," Barry says in the interview.
Barry: “I Want To Be Judged On the Totality of My Life” was originally published on City Desk on Aug. 8, 2009 at 7:30 a.m.
“Weekend News with Chris Core” will feature a sit-down with the Ward 8 Councilman and Mayor-for-Life in two half-hour segments. The first runs tonight at 6:30 p.m. (with a repeat at 10 a.m. tomorrow). The second will air next Saturday at 6:30 p.m. (also with a repeat at 10 the next morning).
Another snippet from the interview: Barry concedes that, when he is dead and gone, the Vista Hotel – the site of his notorious arrest for drug possession in 1990 – will probably feature prominently in his obit.
“It will probably be at the top if it’s written by other people who don’t know me,” he tells Core.
Says Barry: “Well, because I’m an overcomer. You knock me down, I fall down on my back, I look up, get up and go up. And I’ve had a lot of challenges in my life. Business challenges as well as personal challenges. And I keep standing.”
