Sy Scholfield quotes Chideya on Twitter: "Thank you for the birthday wishes! Life is great. Just landed today in San Diego for the black journo conf (" (posted 27 July 2010) [1], "The year I was born, 1969, was peak year for Network News viewership as rating & share" [2], "I was born and raised in Baltimore, and I never feel more American than when I go abroad, but I love all my roots" [3], "I am a Leo with a Scorpio rising. I am a lot in one package. Learning to pace myself has been key. Still learning. #ForLoversofAstrology" [4]. A speculative birth time of 3 PM gives this combination.
