Great news!

I will be in the Philadelphia Daily News possibly on Monday. As it stands right now it's set for Monday.

They are doing a follow up story on my life. It should also be accessible through the web too on www.philly.com

I hope you all take the time to read it!

Yes, that's the Jaleel I remember from the Philly NMRA convention this past summer :D Unfortunately, to view the actual story you have to subscribe to the paper online :( Way to Go Jaleel !

Now I know somebody famous.:D

Yeah, you can read the story without registering, cos I just did.

Jaleel, you're an inspiration mate.
A very moving story, and one that shows great strength of character.

Here's hoping that things continue on the up for you, and that someone snaps up the film rights for your story. :)

And to think more than 4 years ago I was scrounging spline GMax files off a celebrity and I didn't know it. :D

All the best mate,
Smiley.

Hi Jaleel

All I can say is wow! How you've managed to triumph is a story that should be told everywhere. We all have our own problems to deal with, but when I read your story, it shows that no matter what the set backs, if you have the right attitude, you can succeed anywhere.

Thanks for letting us into your life.

Cheers
Tony

Thank for the heads up, Jaleel ... it is there now, the link seemed to be blank this morning at 4:30.
You know, I can just picture you up in that tree :cool:

Take care.

Jaleel, I knew you were special the first time I ever ran across you on the old forum way back when. I just didn't know how special. WOW. You are an inspiration!:D

Since Jaleel already has his picture on the front page, I thought I would share a couple of pics taken at the NMRA convention last summer..

What a great honour it was for them to be able to interview you, Jal ;)

I have been lucky enough to have taken both train and bus rides with Jaleel, and let me tell you, when the elevators aren't working and the public transport staff just don't care, seeing Jaleel swing into action is a sight to behold and adds volumes to the adventure.

Looking forward to the next time we can do it again :)

Cheers.

I wish you had a picture of you climbing the tree.
I like your mom. She sounds tough.

Damn, I missed it.

It won't let me view the full text of the article now because it's in the archives...

I tried looking it up on NewsBank but I can't find it...

Subscribing is free actually. You're only subscribing to the site not the paper.

I hope I'm doing something wrong, the front page I get says "Unholy outrage", and below that "Creepy sex-tour diary was the key". I'm pretty sure neither of those are about Jaleel" :eek:

Yeah that's wrong..lol!

Do a search for my name and it should have a title of A Strong Survivor or something like that.
