The Media themselves should go up on a high-roof, and then do a Lemmings Leap, just thinking-about the carnage below makes me feel good

I was listening to "Shape of You" on the way over, I like that tune, probably because the video has a boxing motif  ...my bedsheets smell like you...  My mother's blood was better than my father's, his was pretty-good, hers was the best, I wonder why she married him, I don't know what we'd be doing about it.  I've noticed for long that women make terrible boxing judges, there's one who "The Ring" said shouldn't be doing it, and this was 6 years ago, and she's still at it.  You'd think anybody could be trained to do it well, apparently-not, trying to force-feed women into everything is a mistake, sure, some of them were bribed, but for the most-part they're just bad.  All of Press Row had either a Draw or Golovkin winning, any combo would have given-it to Gennady, no one had Alvarez winning except that woman-person.  Women are better at knitting, men at boxing judgin'.  I just came from Trump International Hotel, off the Strip, where they're having a Red Cross Blood Drive, today (more talk of blood, hey), where I donated a pint of my sweet-blood, I'm considered to have Rare Blood, they cut my pint 6 ways and give-it to Preemies.  Only 6% of the adults in the U.S. donate, hardly anybody in Las Vegas, tho in the MidWest where I'm from it's 10%.  Being so cowardly that you're afraid of a little-needle is a serious-problem (go see the Wizard?).  I was really disappointed, a lot of the big-places that host a drive, have, say, a ballroom, a nice really-big room, where they set-up and it's a spacious, pleasant, atmosphere for donors and phlebotomists, this thing was a bloodmobile in the parking lot, a really chintzy-offering (when my brother, Bob, was a restaurant-manager, he told the staff, never do anything that makes you look cheap).  And often you get a little-something from the host, say, a free lunch, the Trump  International Hotel had nothing after we gave blood, sweat, toil, and tears, their contribution was space in the parking-lot for the bloodmobile, I wanna free gift, I wanna free gift

Yesterday was Mexican Independence Day, and due to that and the Golovkin-Alvarez fight tonite at 160 lbs., the traffic in LV has been intense for the past 3 days (if you like to go-over manhole-covers, you should come to LV, all the roads are covered-with them?).  This is the greatest boxing-match in the world over the past few years.  Gennady Golovkin is much bigger than Saul Alvarez, and had a scare in his last fight, when many thought that Danny Jacobs had won, many thought Golovkin won, and he did drop Jacobs in the 4th Rd.  This close-call was good for Golovkin, and he'll resume his knockout-ways tonite,  I see him stopping Alvarez in the 10th (I could have gotten a Draw at 18-1, and was thinking about putting $500 on this long-shot, I didn't bet).  My DNA revealed 0% Black blood, and 0% Indian (blood of the Americas), as my mother's ancestors first came here around 1650, and the last of them came 200 years ago, I had to wonder-some, I didn't know what these people did, ha.  I'm 39% British and 15% Celtic, that is, from Wales and Scotland, her ancestry was right-on with what she had said, her ancestors were so stuck on themselves that over centuries they only bred within their ethnicity or close, and that's wonderful.  On my father's side, it was sort-of within the realm of what I had imagined, all in all, I'm 99% European and 1% West Asian, that's like an Armenian or Turk, from around there (how that got in, your guess is better than mine).  A couple days ago, I was in the Flamingo Library, and a familiar worded that at a nearby apt. complex some guy was up on the roof threatening to jump, and that there were 20 police cars with all the nearby streets blocked-off.  I got-out a couple hours later and drove-around, and there was nothing unusual, I read in the paper, the next day, this guy jumped.  He no longer has any problems, but as long as you're here, you might as well stick-around.  5 times as many men commit suicide, more of an ego to support.  Pity

William Hill Sports Book Director, Nick Bogdanovich's quip, when asked why the Sharps, the so-called experts, went in so heavily this past week on the Jets and 49'ers, 2 of the worst teams in the NFL  ...They hate money...

I love those Caribbean islands, great-swimming in warm salt-water, they're all Black there, usually quite-nice.  Antigua and Barbuda is one country, as Barbuda is sparsely-populated, you had to buy a day-tour to successfully get-around, that included boat over and back, they drive you around to the beaches and wherever-else, do some hiking, lunch.  Possibly sizing-me up as the best-tipper in our group of 10, at lunch they gave-me the biggest cooked-lobster I've seen, I'd dip it into liquid-butter, man, that was good eatin'.  That was a wonderful-day, but every so often in the Carib., you get wiped-out, and that happened there (Antigua's highest "mountain" is Mt. Obama).  On the 40 mile ferry boat-ride back to Antigua, some native-woman got sick, and these 2 guys were holding-her up so she could barf over the side, it's not funny.  Watching at least part of  "Horror Hotel" has become my Sunday nite ritual.  Lamia is a vampire (I wasn't quite sure, I knew she was something), she says that it's not true that vampires have to stay inside during the day, and that she goes-out, tho, of course, she prefers the nite.  The Akron-Cleveland area has a long TV tradition of camp horror films and amusing MC's, Ghoulardi often mocked the movies he showed  ...This one is worse than the last...  Lamia is quite-funny and cute, interspersed with old, 20 thou films, some good.  Fri. nite I saw a real-good boxing-card at the Hard Rock, highlighted by David Benavidez winning  the WBC Super Middleweight (168) Championship in a 12 Round Split-Decision over Ronald Gavril, a Romanian based in Las Vegas (shown on Showtime).  Gavril put Benavidez down in the 12th, but it wasn't enuf, one of the judges liked-him.   The undercard was great, 7 fights there, and all those boys fought like heck, Caleb Plant, a young Hillbilly from Tenn., was impressive, also at 168 lbs.  The place was packed, with loud-thudding music whenever no one was fighting, it wasn't good Rock, there were some Hispanics sitting behind me, I heard one say, I was named for warm weather

Russia has doubled-down on Hits, and I'm doubly sick of it.  Standing for the National Anthem shows respect for this country of which the Browns players are likely citizens.  We all have dissatisfaction with some things concerning the U.S., it's our right to grumble, and we all do.  If these Browns are so unhappy here, where they're employed highly-payed, they should leave, go elsewhere.  I saw "Wind River", it was okay, I'd give it a B-, some girls in it, it gives Indian actors a chance to show their stuff.  Didn't Mike just go there, you women say, Mike had a lot of nerve going there for the Eclipse and not taking-me.  I had spoken to one of their people at a branch about opening a certain-account, and was real-surprised that Wells Fargo had opened it for me, I had it quickly-closed, that was 6 years ago, the financial-institutions in this country have run rough-shod over the citizenry for too long.  The Media has caused Rachel Shaw to lose weight and sleep, and has given-her depression (they'd give the Virgin Mary depression).  Just when Trump and I thought that the Media couldn't descend any-lower.  She'd like to compete for movie roles, Rachel Harriet Shaw
