TKO: Getting Out Of A Tough Neighborhood Using "Survival Math"

Portland was a gritty place growing up, from the perspective of Mitchell S. Jackson.  He was constantly calculating what it would take for him to get out of the city and on with the rest of his life, relatively unscathed. 

Those calculations provided the title for his book, Survival Math: Notes on an All-American Family.  We welcome Mitchell Jackson to the Exchange on our regular segment The Keenest Observers.  Regular TKO host Rob Goodwin returns for this conversation.
