Cleveland resident Charles Ramsey, who helped free the three kidnapped girls earlier this week in dramatic fashion, spoke to CNN’s Anderson Cooper on “AC360″ last night. As with his first interview with a local TV station, it was a memorable appearance.

“[Castro was] cool, he was no freak of nature,” Ramsey said. “He was like me and you, because he talked about the same things you talk about.”

Ramsey also appeared via satellite on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” where he chatted with George Stephanopoulos, who attended a rival school to Ramsey’s.
