I thought that "Taking Woodstock" was Good, would have liked to have been there, that Summer I was Fixing Roads for the County, I enjoyed it, got Around, lots of Sunshine and Greenery. On the Crew that I was on One of the Guys had been Killed 3 Years Before, Life is Fraught with Danger. By this Time Literally a Million People Would Have Heard that Kelly is Gay, Why She Lost her Commercials. Only in this Blog has been Written that Kelly is This, the Press in this Country is Lackluster at Best. I Kind of Like Kelly but that Trash at ABC Continues to Delude the Public. From Santa Fe I took a 10-Hour Bus to Cordoba, now I was in Northwest Argentina. A Big City of 1,272,000 it's Quite Good. Whatshismug who Won this Year's Masters is from Cordoba. Everything of Interest is either at the Plaza San Martin or Close to it. Of Interest is the 1577 Iglesia Cathedral and of course the 1645 Jesuit Iglesia de la Compania de Jesus whose Interior is a Masterpiece with a Wooden Ceiling which is an Inverted Ship's Hull. I really Enjoyed their Historical Museum and there were Other Niceties. Woodstock was about the Last Chance to see Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, Janis has always been one of my Favorites and I had 2 Albums of Hers long after she was Gone, the Last I Heard She still Sold 300,000 CD's a Year. A Few Years ago I Saw an Interview on TV with Her Sister who was a College Professor, Sounds Awfully Tame for the Sister of Janis Joplin.

You TV Media Clutch at Your Jobs like a Dog with a Meatbone. "Inglourious Basterds" was so Off-the-Wall and Weird that I don't advise Anyone to See it, One I Saw Recently that was Pretty Good was "Orphan." After Graduating from High School on May 24,2005 Natalee Holloway and 124 of her Fellow Graduates flew to the Dutch Island of Aruba for a 5-Day Celebration. During their Stay there was Much Debauchery, Endless Drunkenness and Room-Switching, the Holiday Inn told them not to Return. On May 30, 2005 the other 124 Flew Back to Alabama but Natalee Missed Her Flight. Immediately there was a Full-Scale Investigation at least by Aruban Standards and it was determined that Natalee was last seen with Joran van der Sloot, "17," and 2 Brothers of Indian Descent, Deepak Kalpoe, "21," and Satish Kalpoe, "18." They were seen in a Car with Her and Claimed to have Dropped Her Off at her Hotel. Seeing as How Natalee Vanished Without a "Trace" No Doubt They Had Something to do With Her Disappearance. Close as to What Happened is that Natalee Willingly had Sex with van der Sloot who was Actually Kind of Good-Looking But van der Sloot told his "Friends" to also have Sex with Natalee and this was Against Her Will as She Wouldn't Be Doing 3 at a Time and These Guys Were as Ugly as Sin. van der Sloot Enjoys Seeing Women in Degrading Circumstances and This Was Probably His Only Interest in the Kalpoes. Had This Been in the United States The Case Would Have Been Cracked Almost Immediately as Our Police are Halfway Decent, not so in Aruba. The Dutch like all the Western Europeans Have Pansy Laws, Pansy Investigations and Pansy Punishments. Also There Are Very Few Murders in the Dutch Antilles and They're Out of Practice Anyway. To Prevent Natalee From Telling the Police What Happened van der Sloot and the Kalpoes Murdered Her and Dumped Her Body 10 Miles Out in an Oil Drum and Nobody Will Ever Find It. On December 18, 2007 the Dutch Declared the Case Closed but Since then a Video has Surfaced with van der Sloot Saying that Natalee had Died and that He Had Disposed of her Body. van der Sloot and the Kalpoes have Been Arrested a Number of Times but Nothing Ever Came of it. I Mentioned that When I was in French Guiana Recently that on my Day-Trip to the French Penal Colony Islands off of Cayenne that I palled around for the day With an Upscale Young Dutch Guy named Joost. Joost told me that the Holloway Case was All Over the News in this Part of the World at That Time and that van der Sloot Now All Grown-Up Was in Thailand Seeking Women to Work in a Brothel in Holland. Not Liking the Scrutiny He Disappeared. When I Got to the Dutch Island of Curacao 4 Days Later It Was Much in the News There Almost 4 Years Since Natalee Vanished, Curacao is Right Next to Aruba. Even the Manager of the Flop That I Stayed At on Curacao Was Talking About It, He Was Staring Straight Ahead and Slowly Saying, Natalee Holloway. Natalee is Long Dead But the People in That Part of the World Are Taking Her Murder Seriously Despite the Feeble Efforts of the Dutch Government and So Should We. We Should Never Forget Natalee and Our Desire to See Her Killers Brought to Justice.

Like Everybody else I'd like to see Cowboys Stadium. But if it can Seat 120 Thousand as the Field is no Bigger than Anywhere Else then Most of Those are Bad Seats unless They're sitting in Each Other's Lap. Being from Akron I've been Following LeBron James' Career since he was in the 9th Grade. Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary won the Mythical High School Basketball Championship when LeBron was a Senior, St. V beat the fabled Oak Hill when Every One of Oak Hill's first 12 Players were Better than Anybody St. V had Except for LeBron. After 10th Grade LeBron was only Considered to be the 2nd Best Player in the Country in his Class, he went to one of the Big Summer Camps, ABCD, Nike, one of Those, where the Guy who Was Supposed to be Better than LeBron Was and Tooled Him. It was Then that the Legend of LeBron was Born. LeBron has a Big Affection for old Broken-Down Akron, Cutsie. This Country's Economy would be Flush were it not for All These Illegal Aliens. Federal Laws have always been in Place forbidding Illegal Aliens from Entering and Residing in This Country but They Haven't Been Enforced. This has been Due to the Desire for the Cheap Labor that these Illegals Provided. But Many of Them are Criminals and Clog our Prisons after Committing Crimes against the Legal Population, They Breed like Rabbits and Due to an Incorrect Interpretation of the Constitution their Children are American Citizens. They Clog our Schools, they Clog Everything, They Cost a Fortune. This isn't Mexico or Central America. This didn't Happen Overnight it's Been Going on Unabated for 30 Years while the Media who Should have Been Speaking Against This Remained Largely Silent. The American Media Has Sold Our Birthright for a Bowl of Pottage, They Live for Today like Animals.

I see where Kelly has taken down that Bedraggled Picture of Herself from her Website, good, it was horrid. I worked with that Girl but there was no Straw for my Bricks. I was Talking with a long-time Friend of Mine yesterday, his Family has been Prominent in Business in Las Vegas for well over 50 Years. His Family had a Car Dealership for 25 Years and has a lot of Commercial Real Estate and other things. He was Complaining to me at Great Length that Nowadays he has to work Twice as Hard for Half as Much. His Property Taxes are the Same while Everything Else Costs More. The Veins in his Neck were Bulging, he went on and on. I'm Sending him to you Financial Experts so that you Salve Him with Wise and Soothing Counsel. From Posadas I took a 12-Hour Bus to Sante Fe, a City of 370,000. Nice old Things to see there such as the Templo de Santo Domingo, the Jesuit Iglesia de la Compania, the Convento y Museo de San Francisco and other Goodies. After Sightseeing there I took a bus across the Parana River to its Namesake, Parana, a city of 240,000 and there was a Nice Cathedral and Museums there as Well. Argentina is always very good and Pleasant, little Crime anywhere you just Walk Around Leisurely Doing as you Wish. I go into the Men's Restroom of course and I Notice that over a Third of Them Don't even Wash their Hands. I Wash my Hands, Wash Off the Faucet with Soapy Water and only Touch the Door Handle with a Paper Towel. Unfortunately Many of the Men that you Women Have are These Filthy Pigs.

I'm tired of Criticizing you Guys. An older guy who was Friend of Mine in my Youth had a Brother, his only Sibling, on the Submarine USS Bonefish which was reported "Missing" during WW II. But yes, they do know what happened to it. Apparently they told the families that the Submarine was Missing and presumed Lost and made no attempt to later say what Actually happened. A very Successful Hunter, the Bonefish sank 31 Enemy Vessels, it had gone into the Harbor of Toyama Wan in Japan and had sunk a Japanese Transport. But the Japanese weren't as Toothless as they had thought and Before they could get Away they Themselves were Sunk. There's a Memorial at Pearl Harbor to the Dead Submariners of WW II, it Says that they're on "Eternal Patrol." My Friend's Brother's Name is Listed there. People these days make a Big Deal out of Somebody Dying, my Friend just Stated matter of factly what he had been told had happened to his Brother. A Friend of Mine back in Akron's Mother's Brother was a fighter pilot in the Pacific and his Family was also told that he was "Missing." They also made no Big Deal about it, he had been "Missing" for 30 years and it's not like they Expected Him to Come Walking Through the Door Sometime. My Friend was the Oldest of 6 but was that Rarest of People, Somebody who had no lst Cousins, even I have 2. His Father was an only child as was my Father and his Mother had a Brother, her only Sibling, but he died Young. At St. Sebastian's to be One of 6 was Common, to be One of 10 wasn't Uncommon. I Used to Really Like to Talk to these Old Birds who had been in WW II. I can't do it anymore as They're Usually Dead but I'd Hear Some Stories. This One Guy who had been in the Battle of the Bulge told me that he Saw these French-Canadians Hang these 2 Young German Soldiers by their, uh, Midsections. He said they bent over 2 Young Trees, tied the Germans to them and Let Them Fly. He said that he thought that they died Pretty Quickly. No doubt "the Metis." The Guy telling the Story wouldn't have known the Metis from the Petit. The Metis were part French and part Indian, they Rebelled during the 1880's and fought a Number of Battles with the English, they were Rough People. They hung their Leader at the Mountie Post at Winnipeg, where I've been, they have a nice Mountie Museum there.

They're saying that Rick Pitino will have a hard time Recruiting now that his dalliance with a Woman in a Bar has been revealed, that the supposedly Relgious married Father of five will have a hard time Convincing College Prospects to attend Lousiville. I say that this will give Pitino Street Cred and enhance his Recruiting Ability. Jerry Tarkanian, the long-time Basketball Coach at UNLV, is at "77" in Tuff Shape. Back in Ohio in the early 70's We used to lay on our little beds during the Winter and read with Awe of this Program-Builder at Long Beach State whose Teams were threatening those of John Wooden at UCLA. I'm still Wondering how Tark got Eddie Ratliff, his 2 Time All-American, to go there. Ratliff and Dwight Lamar at Southwest Louisiana State were both 1st Team All-Americans and teammates at Columbus East. I'm wondering the Same Thing about Lamar. Before Tark came to UNLV Las Vegas was only known as Sin City, after Tark they were known for something that was held in High Esteem, a long-time Very Successful Basketball Program. Jerry's Mother had fled on horseback from a burning village in Armenia after having seen her Father and Brother beheaded by the Turks. The sad-eyed Coach always came across as a Survivor in his long battle with the NCAA and even his own College President, hopefully he'll continue in this as Jerry Tarkanian is a great Las Vegan. In late February I sent Cox Cable a $30 payment for the coming month's Internet and I wrote on that Thing that you send in with the Payment that I wanted Internet Service discontinued on March 9 and to give me a Credit. Most people would think that this would suffice but I return to this Country, get my mail and learn that Cox Cable had continued supplying me with Internet Service at this Apartment that I had vacated. I called Cox and they said that I should have called it in instead of writing it on the Invoice and that they were entitled to keep my $50 deposit as well as giving me no credit for that part of the month that I was out of the Country. I complained to the Nevada Public Utilities Commission and they wrote me that they couldn't Reason with Cox and I should get another Internet Service. A friend of me told me that Cox continued to bill his Father even though he had told them that his Father had died, even going to their Office 4 Times and once taking in a Copy of his Father's Death Certificate. He dropped Cox. The Las Vegas Better Business Bureau told me that they'd had 205 Complaints about Cox over the past 3 Years. Cox Cable is the 3rd Largest Company of its kind in the Country but comes across as a Lax and Dishonest Stable. I have no money to give Cox that they don't deserve and will continue in my Efforts to gain a Just Resolution.

I was just reading in today's newspaper about some Young Guy in Iran who was involved in the Recent Unrest there and how he was Tortured and Killed (nails pulled out, teeth knocked out, rectum ripped open, etc). When I belonged to Amnesty International we never sent Letters to Iran on behalf of people who we Wanted to see Released from Prison because if we did they'd just Kill them outright. Many low Swine dwell there. I went to an Oxygen Bar at the Del Mar Fair, always wanted to do that, and afterwards I bought a couple small Canisters of 90% pure Oxygen. Ever since before I go to the Gym I've been taking a few Hits of this before I go to the Car. Makes you lightheaded but seems to work well, I've had Good Workouts. But I don't think that my driving to the Gym is as Sharp as it usually is. I don't want you People to do this, I'm sure it'll go awry, you'll get in an Accident, maybe OD. Typically the Air that we breathe is 21% Oxygen, after I Inhale the 90% Oxygen it makes the Outdoor Air taste like Stale Smoke. For Decades after I take a long, hot Shower in the Morning instead of Toweling Off I Spray my Entire Body with 91% or higher Alcohol and let it Dry. My Parents were very Hygienic and I've improved on this. Don't you People do this, you'll set yourselves on Fire or Something. A year ago I was passing a pay-phone and 4 People who said that they were from Kazakhstan asked me how to make a Long-Distance Call. I couldn't help but sing "...Kazakhstan is the Greatest Country in the World, All the Other Countries are Ruled by Little Girls..." Nobody Smiled. I showed them how to use the Pay-Phone and even chipped in a couple quarters so we parted with them Seemingly Happy with me. Seemed like Pretty Good People. From Iguazu Falls I took the Bus to Posadas, a Pleasant 6-Hour Bus Trip. Posadas is on the Parana River and is right across from Paraguay. A City of a quarter-million there's Not too much to See but I enjoyed Walking Around in their Downtown. I was also able to buy the "Buenos Aires Herald" even though I was quite far from Buenos Aires. A very good English-Language Newspaper I often bought it during my 12 Day Stay in Argentina.

A couple of days ago I gave Blood yet again. The Preemies have never done anything for me and probably never will but if You can do Something for Somebody you should just pitch in and Do It. You might not know what I'm talking about. At times the Employees have Chortled with Glee while I'm being drained of the Blood that they're so Thirsty For, eh Take their Work Seriously. The "Dan Hodge Trophy" is awarded each year to the Outstanding Wrestler in Collegiate Wrestling. It's named after Dan Hodge who was a 3-time NCAA Champion who had a perfect record of 46-0 while at the U. of Oklahoma. Born in 1932 Dan's mother died when he was "12" and his father took him to live with relatives on a farm while he worked in the oil fields. Dan said, "...They used to hit me. I wanted to get so strong that the next hand that hit me, I could break that hand." A Sports Star in High School Dan won a Scholarship to the U. of O. and afterwards was a 2-time Olympian and won a Silver Medal in the 1956 Olympics. Dan Hodge then became a professional Heavyweight Boxer posting a very good record of 8-2 before he launched a Lengthy and Lucrative Career as a Professional Wrestler. I was watching the 2006 NCAA Wrestling Championships on TV and the "74" year old Dan Hodge was helping with TV Analysis when a young guy in passing casually handed Dan Hodge an Apple, it looked like a big Red Delicious. The Old Man Squeezed the Apple with his Right Hand for 10 Seconds until all the Juice had Run Out.

I don't think that you're Bad People per se, I think that you're somewhat Ethically Challenged and don't have much Farsight, you sort of live for today like Animals. How did I get involved with you People, I'm not a Social Worker. George Sodini who shot those poor Women at that L.A. Fitness near Pittsburg seemed rational from his Writings that I've seen, it would seem like he could have dug Somebody up. Those Women never did anything to him. Society is in a Freefall, after Sodini's Rampage I read that somebody named Wong killed 13 People and himself in April when I was out of the Country. 2 Years ago that Cho killed 32 people at Va. Tech, so that's 45 People and themselves between the 2 of them. Some of these Orientals seem have problems adjusting to this Country. A lot of People are better off staying where they're at. August 6 marked the 64th Anniversary of the 1st Atomic Bomb being dropped on Hiroshima, Japan. It immediately killed 70 thousand people. Even though Japan had lost the War in the Pacific those Silly Japs still hadn't given up, Something drastic had to be done. I've been to Hiroshima, I was so Proud. Colonel Paul Tibbets was so Wracked by guilt that he returned to Base, ate, had 2 Beers and went to Sleep, he died a couple years ago at "92." On July 26, 1945 the Battleship Indianapolis delivered the final Component for the A-Bomb that was to be dropped on Hiroshima to the Island of Tinian. The Indianapolis left Tinian and on July 30, 1945 it was Torpedoed by a Japanese Submarine. Of the 1196 Americans on the Indianapolis 900 made it into the Water but 5 days later there were only 317 Survivors as Many of the other Sailors had been Eaten by Sharks. It was said that it was much Easier to Die than it was to Live. The Sharkhunter in "Jaws" was based on a Survivor of the Indianapolis who had a Deep Hatred of Sharks. On the Atomic Bomb "Little Boy" that was dropped on Hiroshima was written "Remember the Indianapolis."

I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't fond of you furry little creatures. Although I have no Official Followers all of the Big Names in this Country read my Blog and Wait with Baited Breath for my Next Offering. Your Devotion to Myself is Moving. Bob Hayes is being admitted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. A lot of People including myself think that Bob was the fastest human ever, that he would have surpassed those who came after him who ran on those Souped-Up Surfaces. When Bob Hayes was at Florida A&M he robbed a gas station or something and after his Pro Career with the Cowboys he went to Prison for Drug-Dealing. As I Mentioned, the Pro Football Hall of Fame isn't all that Finicky. A tragic figure who died at "58," Bob said that had Pro Track been as Lucrative then as it later became that you wouldn't have seen him in that Cowboys Uniform for 11 Years. He said, "...Why would I want to get beat up if I didn't have to?" Vladimir Lenin whose Plasticized Remains I've seen in Red Square said, "All of Life is a Fight." Ed says,"...All of Life is a Melodrama..." Your own Interpretations are Welcome. My older Brother, Bob, has at times displayed a lot of Energy. After he returned to Ohio State after being in the Army for a long time he was a Full Time Student and also worked at the Heidelberg South around the Campus (which at that time sold the 2nd largest volume of beer in that large and thirsty state) and even had a part-time job as well. The Owner, Hass, had a lot of Veterans of the 101st Airborne working at the South Berg, had a preference for these guys for some reason, and one of those was Benny Butkus. Benny was a tall, lanky guy who liked to work the Door and Check ID's in case anybody made trouble. I was told that Benny once ground his lit cigarette out on some guy's nose. The last that I heard of Benny he was a Banker.

The U.S. Economy would be Flush were it not for all these Illegal Aliens tearing up our Highways, Clogging them up, Greatly increasing the Crime Rate and Sponging our Social Services. This too is the Fault of the Media. Things could be a lot worse in my own Life, after all I could be one of you. Soon the late Derrick Thomas of the K.C. Chiefs will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Derrick died almost 10 years ago due to his own Bad Driving, he killed himself and Somebody else. Derrick was survived by his 9 children by 5 women, most of the relationship that he had with his children was that they saw him playing Football on TV. At least in Baseball they seem to think that you should have Moral Qualifications to be in their Hall of Fame. Although why Pete Rose should be in in any Case is beyond me. He has the Record for Most Hits in a Career but that's because he played for so long, he only hit .303 for his Career and only averaged 8 Home Runs a Year, what's so good about that? Mickey Mantle said, "...If I hit that many Singles I'd Wear a Dress..." I think this is what you Women do. When I was at Ohio State I knew Jim Stillwagon, we lived in the same place for awhile and often shot pool together. A lot of you Older Guys know the name. When Jim was a Sophomore Middle Guard at Ohio State they won an Outright National Championship, beating O.J. Simpson and SC in the Rose Bowl (O.J. played real well, the other guys didn't). When Stillwagon was a junior he was a 1st Team All-American, it was after this that I knew him. Every time that Jim saw me his face lit up with a big smile and he said, "How are you doing?" And I was just an average person, he's the only one in my life who treated me this way. As a senior Jim won the Outland Trophy for Best Lineman in the Country, he wasn't very big for a lineman but Jimmy knew how to play good. I think presently he owns a Memorabilia Shop in Columbus, I'm sure that he wouldn't remember me but I remember him.

The United States should have put a Man on Mars 20 Years ago, shows how Decadent this Country has Become. The Media Shares Much of the Blame for Our Downfall, You're Whores for that Paycheck, doesn't seem to bother you. From Nasca I took a Bus back to Lima so I could fly to Argentina. I arrived about 8 P.M. and took a taxi to the Airport. The Lima Airport is very good, amongst other amenities it has a 24-Hour Travel Agency and there I bought a ticket to Buenos Aires which I used 2 Hours Later. I arrived in B.A. early in the Morning and eventually made my way downtown where I cashed $500 in T X's into their Money. I then walked to their Bus Station and bought a ticket leaving for Iguazu Falls in a Couple Hours. I ate and relaxed in their Bus Station. My Bus was a Cama Bus (luxury) and I thoroughly enjoyed the 18-Hour Trip, they gave me good meals and I enjoyed looking out the Window at the Flat Plains of the Pampas. I arrived in Iguazu Falls about 8 A.M., ate more, found a nice room for $20 and went to their Bus Station for the Bus to the Falls. A Short Ride, I had been there on the Brazilian Side 19 years before, the Argentine Side is much better. I walked through their Rainforest which is also an Animal Preserve (one sign says in English that if you're attacked by a Wildcat that you should try to fend him off). Iguazu is higher than Niagara and has the greatest annual flow of water of any Waterfall in the World. By far the Most Impressive of the Falls is on the Argentine Side (two-thirds of the Falls are on the Argentine), this is called "Garganta del Diablo" which in English means the Devil's Throat. On the Walkways, Catwalks over the Falls you can get within 20 yards of the Devil's Throat and whereas Everybody else seemed to look for a few minutes and then walked on, I stood There transfixed for 2 Hours. I was Captivated by its Power and Beauty, I couldn't tear myself away. I eventually Walked Back through the Rainforest where amongst other Beings they have Lots of Butterflys. Some of these pretty Butterflys you could get to stay on your Finger. I had one on my Finger when 2 Girls Walked Past, the Nearer Grimaced as I put the Butterfly on her Bare Shoulder but as I walked away I heard her say to her friend, take my picture.
