Blackwell offered details from his youth as a reason people should vote for him. He said growing up on the streets means he knows what a lot of people in the city have gone through.... Blackwell is one of six Democrats hoping to make it to the primary ballot in September.

    The success of CBS's "Everybody Loves Raymond" offers several lessons today's TV executives would do well to recognize: It takes time to grow a hit. When "Raymond" premiered in September 1996, the show aired at 8:30 p.m. Friday and had terrible ratings. Critics raved about it, but viewers didn't find it. CBS paid attention to the critical plaudits and moved "Raymond" to 8:30 p.m. Monday in 1997, where it grew into a hit.
