Follow-up: The Rest of the Story Behind the “Man with the Golden Voice”

Remember my last post, in which I voiced some skepticism about the media frenzy surrounding Ted Williams, the homeless man with the “golden voice”?

Well, as I suspected, there is more to this picture. And when you learn the rest of the story, you may decide that we’ve been celebrating the wrong person.

Apparently, Williams has already been signed as the voice of KRAFT Foods. I wonder how they feel now that more information about this “miracle man” has been revealed.
