Recently Paris Hilton and her Friend Were Threatened by a Hispanic with big Knives who was trying to Enter her House, Instead of holding this Guy at Gunpoint her Friend Should have Gunned Him Down. Their Ability to Change Somebody like That is None and He Could Eventually try to Do It Again, Better Judged by 12 than Carried by 6. I've Been to India twice and have Been all over it from Kashmir to Thiruvananthapuram that is North to South and all Points in Between. India is very dirty and for Delicacy I Won't Explain Why, I barfed at the Railway Station in Amritsar Where I had gone to See the Golden Temple of the Sikhs, not on the Platform making a Spectacle of Myself but in the Men's Room. In 1984 Indira Gandhi had the Golden Temple Stormed as She Thought Weapons were being Stored in There, it's not that big though, her Sikh Bodyguards then Killed Her and they were Hung, Lots of happiness. From Amritsar I Then Proceeded to Lahore, Pakistan. And I've Been to Agra and the Taj Mahal twice, on the Yamuna River. Shah Jahan (1592 to 1666) was the Emperor of the Mughal Empire from 1628-1658 and his Reign was Called the Golden Age of the Mughals and he was the Most Powerful Man in the World. He had 3 Wives with 2 of Those being for Political Reasons and he had Little to do with Them. Shah Jahan's 3rd Wife was Mumtaz Mahal (Jewel of the Palace), Well Known to be a Kind Person, and She and her Husband were Very Much in Love. Mumtaz Mahal married Pince Khurram in 1612 at "19," later to be Shah Jahan. In 1631 Mumtaz Mahal died in Childbirth giving Birth to Their 14th Child and She was Dying She Asked her Husband to "Show the World How Much We Loved Each Other." Shah Jahan went into Mourning and Emerged with his Hair Turned White and he began Building the Taj Mahal. He Used 20 thousand People bringing Artisans from as far Away as Europe and It took 20 years to Complete. Built of White Marble with 4 Minarets tilting away at an 85degree angle in Case of Earthquakes it was Compl;eted in 1652. The 2 Times I've been There I Went all over it from the Outside to the Inside, I was there in the Early Afternoon and at Dusk with Dawn being the other Preferred Time, Both times it Looked Great, the first time I Sent a Postcard Saying that now I Can Die Happy I've Seen the Taj. Despite it's Great Wealth the Expense of the Taj Mahal was One that the Mughal Empire Could Ill Afford, in 1658 Aurangzeb the Son of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal and Less Sentimental than his Folks Deposed his Father and Kept Him in the Red Fort a Mile Away where Shah Jahan Could Look Out Over the Taj Mahal. On the Bottom Floor is Where the Side by Side Sarcophigi of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal Are and You can Buy Rose Petals as Did I to Scatter Over Them Together for the Past Four Centuries.

Hi Ho Everyone. I Was Just Watching the Movie "Rudy" on TV, Now that was a Really Feel-Good Movie with no sex and hardly any bad language. I Heard Rudy Ruettiger's Talk "Follow Your Dreams" and Thought it to be pretty good, I'm Sure that He'd Be Able to be Available to Speak to Your Group. LeBron often gushed about his love for Akron and now Chris Wells is Doing the Same. When Wells was at Akron Garfield he was considered to be the Best Player in the Country. After a Stellar Career at Ohio State he was the lst Draft Choice of the Arizona Cardinals. At Midseason in his lst Year this past Year He went to his Head Coach Whisenhunt and Told Him that he was Homesick and Whisenhunt Let Him Go Home for a Few Days and "...That Helped a Whole Lot." Oh gee. WWII Had the Elements of a Civil War with the 2 Highest Guys in the Army being Eisenhower, iron worker, and George Marshall, with the Highest Guy in the Navy being Chester Nimitz. When the Americans Liberated the Concentration Camps Eisenhower was shown in Photos Standing in Dumbfoundment. As the Germans Parlayed for Peace the Head of the American Delegation was Bedell Smith, himself a 3-Star General with Eisenhower Waiting down the Hall as he Said, I Don't Want to Talk to Any Nazi Generals.

It Used to be that a Paltry 2% of the Adults in Las Vegas Gave Blood, Now It's a Lot Less than That and They Have to Get Most of the Blood Used Locally from Elsewhere, the Concern for Others Isn't So Pronounced in Sin City. What I Give Them They Don't Give Away, They Sell It for a Lot of Money. I Was Just Watching a Chris Farley Movie on TV, Guy Could Move Well for a Man of his Girth. Chris Liked to Go to Mass Twice a Week. It's a Rite of Passage to go to the Grave of Robert Louis Stevenson on Mount Vaia just Outside of Apia, Western Samoa, I've Been There, It Was Rough as It Had Rained Recently, Took Me an Hour and a Half. A Couple of Old, English People Whizzed Past Me Like I Was Standing Still, They Did It In an Hour. RL Stevenson Said That in Relation to People's Personalities It's More Like Two. Pope Pius IX Had the Longest Pontificate, 1846 to 1878, 32 Years. If A Cardinal Displeased Him He'd Make Him Kiss His Shoe, That'd Put You in Your Place. You Have to Wonder if Bobby Fischer Would Have Gone to Iceland Had He Known They'd Let Him Be Dug Up, Doing That to a Man of His Stature. An Off-the-Wall Type Guy Who Ranted Against Jews Even Though He Was Half, Genius is Often Flawed. This Country Gave One of Their Most Esteemed Persons a Bum Deal By Harassing Him About Breaking the Trade Embargo With the Former Yugoslavia by Playing in a Chess Tournament There in 1992, Who Wouldn't Do That for 2 Million Dollars. Made This Poor Man an Outcast from the Country He Had Represented So Well. The Common Goal in This Country is to be Bland, to be Like Everybody Else. Steve Kerr Played in the NBA from 1988 to 2002 and is the All-Time Leader in 3-Point Percentage. Usually a Substitute He'd Bring in Instant Points, It's Said That Anyone Can Take a Jump Shot but Not That Well. Steve Played on 5 NBA Championship Teams in His 13 Year Career, 3 with the Bulls and 2 with the Spurs, After Retiring He Became a TV Analyst and Most Recently General Manager of the Phoenix Suns. Steve Kerr was Born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1965, His Parents Being Malcolm and Ann Kerr. They Both Were the Children of Academics at American University in Beirut and They Were Also This with Malcolm Kerr Becoming the President of American University. In 1982 Malcom Kerr Was Assassinated by a Member of Hezbollah near his Office on Campus Despite Him and His Family's Love of the Middle East. I Was in Beirut in 2004 and Was on the Campus of American University and Mentioned Steve Kerr's NBA Career to a Professor, a Christian Arab. He Said Ann Was Telling Me About That, Were You Just Talking With Her? I Said I Don't Know Mrs. Kerr.

All of the TV Media Would Warble Like Birds Should It Mean Their Jobs, Not Very High-Principled People. Went to the Classic Car Collection at the Imperial Palace, Best in the World, There's a '37 Mercedes That Yours Should You Have a Spare 7 mil 5. My Friend Al is Spanish and Has a Number of Properties Locally. Recently He Evicted a Guy From A House Who Was a Month in Arrears, He Took This Guy's Deposit and Changed all the Locks, He then Gave All this Guy's Possessions to the Goodwill, his Furniture, his TV, his Sound System, He Gave Away All This Guy's Clothes. Should You Be in Vegas for Awhile and Need a Place Let Me Know. This National Passion for Gambling is Very Bad, Soon There'll Be a Casino on Every Corner. A Lot of People Have that Weakness and Can't Gamble. Years Ago a Black Police Detective at one of the Detroit Casinos Blew His Brains Out at One of the Blackjack Tables After Losing 15 Thousand. The Luxor in LV is a Pyramid and all the Rooms Open to the Inside, 2 People have Leapt to their Deaths one of Them Landing Near the Buffet Line, bon appetit. Multitudes Have Killed Themselves Over Gambling although not too Many In the Casino Itself. Art Schlichter was an All-American Quarterback at Ohio State and the 4th Player Taken in the 1982 NFL Draft by the Colts. A Country Bumpkin, he Began Gambling in High School Visiting Scioto Downs, Harness Racing Near Columbus. By the End of His First Year With the Colts He had Gambled Away his Bonus and Was 700 thousand in Debt. Schlichter's Career Was Over by 1985, In a 2007 Interview Art Said that he Had Stolen at least 1.5 Million by Conning Friends and Whomever Else he Could, He Served 10 Years in Jail and Prison from 1995 to 2006. Now "50" Art Schlichter Lives on His Family's 450 Acre Grain Farm in Washington Court House, Ohio. The Pressure of Living Up to Everybody's Opinion and Expectations of Him Led Him to Give Vent to This Disease. While Still at Ohio State Art Schlichter Had A Biography in Tribute to Him, "Straight Arrow."

I Came out of Wal-Mart Yesterday and found a note on my windshield--Very Interested Buyer, a Woman's Name and Handwriting and a Phone Number. I had no For Sale Signe on my car, Everybody Wants My Car, Reminds Them of the Good Old Days, an Easier Time. The Chinese Recently Forfeited the Bronze Medal in Women's Gymnastics for the 2002 Olympics as They Had Been Found to have had an Underaged Gir. The Chinese Won the Gold Medal in This in the 2008 Olympics with Obviously Underaged Girls, The Chinese Cheat and Don't Care Who Knows It. Miami to Mexico City for the Last 4 Days of My Trip. 5 Hours by Bus to Acapulco, 277 Miles South of Mexico City. Acapulco is like Puerto Vallarta, all the Beaches are Oily, even Diamante the Best Beach. Went to La Quebrada to see the Famous Cliff-Divers, the Clavadistas. Really Something to See These 6 Daring Young Men Climb Dangerously from the Water Up to the Top of the Sheer Cliffs, Wisely Pray on their Knees at the Shrine There and Then Dive 131 Feet into a Narrow Gorge and 13 Feet of Water. Afterwards We Tourists All Tipped Well These Shy, Appealing Young Fellows (You Wanna See This). I Took the Glass-Bottom Boat out to La Roqueta Island and that was Good. Went to the Fort, Fuerte de San Diego built in 1616 to Protect the Port From Pirates which is Now a Quite Good Museum. And of course I Went Marlin Fishing, I Rented a 45 Foot Boat with a Crew of 2 for the Day, a day Consisting of 7 to 2 P.M. I Didn't Even Get a Strike Which Pleased Me to No End. But It Was a Lot of Fun to Be Out There Away from Acapulco, Saw a Lot of SeaLife, Green Turtles, Dolphins, it was a Lot of Fun Despite the Lack of a 300 Pound Marlin on My Line. I Was Out There Where Francis Drake Would Lay in Wait for Spanish Treasure Ships, the Spanish Called Him El Drage(o), the Dragon. It Was on April 22, When I Arrived at the Mexico City Airport from Miami that I Used the ATM which led to my Being Ripped-Off. I Refer My Readers to My Blog of May 27, 2010 and to my 2 Blogs of June 16, 2010. I've Graciously Recounted My Latest Wonderful Trip for the Enjoyment of My Little Readers and Now I Expect You to Get Off Your Fat Butts and Get Me My Money From Those Thieving Scum at Wells Fargo.

Went to a Vons yesterday, a Security Guard was Chasing a Hispanic Kid who had Taken Something, Pathos in the Parking Lot. This Week I Donated Blood for the 22nd Time here in Las Vegas, Once in San Diego. They Consider Me to Have "Rare Blood," It's ABpositive, CMV negative, They Cut My Pint 6 Ways and Give It to Preemies. Most People have the CMV Virus and that'll Kill a Preemie, I Don't Have It. The Preemies have Never Done Anything for Me and Never Will, If You Can Do Something for Somebody You Should Just Pitch In and Do It. You Might Not Know What I'm Talking About. After Arriving in Miami I Went to North Beach Where I Stayed a Couple Days, I Actually Prefer North Beach to SoBe. Went to the Bass Museum of Art, in SoBe, Went to the Fountainbleau which Recently had a Billion Dollar Renovation. Once Went in There Years Ago and Asked a Question of the Desk Clerk who Seemed Quite Amused in a Nice Way to See Me There. Best Hotel I've Ever Seen was the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi. Now that Hugo Chavez has Dug Up the Skeleton of Simon Bolivar, a Huge Hero Not Just in Venezuela Where he Was From but Throughout South America, You Have to Wonder if He's Losing It. A Lot of Times When I've Aired Up My Tires I've Helped Women There to Do This. Few Things are Easier but Many of the Female Gender Have a Hard Time Doing This. Many Just See that a Tire's Seems Low so They Put Air in It Until It Looks Better to Them Doing This Without Using a Tire Gauge. As They Could Have Well Put in 55 pounds When It Should be 35 and the Tire Could Blow Up as They're Going Down the Road Endangering Themselves and Others I Help Them Put in the Right Amount. One Lady Insisted on Giving Me $2 for My Assistance, I Used It to Buy a Big Chocalate Bar.

I Wouldn't have thought that Obama would have turned down Jack Johnson for a Pardon, Seemed like he had a Raw Deal, Bill Clinton Pardoned a Hispanic who had Moved 800 pounds of Cocaine, thought this poor, Oppressed man should be returned to the Community. In New Mexico they're talking about Pardoning Billy the Kid of whom it's Undisputed that he Killed a Sheriff and 2 Deputies. Took the Greyhound to Gainesville, only place in Florida I hadn't been. Went to the Campus of the U of Florida and was in their Football Stadium (the Swamp, 96,000) and their Basketball Arena (only 12,000). Was in all their Other Athletic Facilities, quite good. They were setting up for the NCAA Women's Gymnastics Championships, Florida finished 5th. Saw their 3 Football National Championship Trophies and their 2 Basketball National Championship Trophies, all pretty Recent. Saw their 3 Replica Heisman Trophies. Nice Place, was in their Chemistry Building and was Wondering if this Professor and his Lecture had been Using Laughing Gas, they Were in a Good Mood. The Professor was Setting Up when I Wandered in and asked him if this was Where Gatorade was invented in 1965. He said it was at the Medical School. I was in a Winn-Dixie away from the Campus and the Southern Accent in North Florida is so Strong that When I said "Hair" to the Lady she thought I'd said "Ear." Took the Greyhound to Miami, also $71. 3 Weeks ago I was in L.A. to see the Art Museums yet again. I went to the Getty, the L.A. County Art Museum, the Armand Hammer and the Huntington in San Marino next to Pasadena. While going to the Getty I was at a Bus Stop in Brentwood and I was talking to an Older Guy and I mentioned O.J. He said that's 3 Blocks up the Street (Bundy). I said Please Point it out as we're going Past and he did and I saw it Perfectly. 2 Rows of Claprattle Condos with their Front Doors facing each other Across a Narrow Courtyard. The Courtyard is Where O.J. killed those 2. As it was at Night I'd think Somebody would have Heard Something (Ouch). Not only is Art Pleasurable in its Own Way it also Liberates the Mind, your Mind thinking at its Optimum. Friday night I ate at the Hilton and they were having a Trekkies Convention, Saturday Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock would be there.

Took Local Buses up to Ft. Lauderdale, 3 Hours, Always Liked the Place. Elbo Room is Still There after All These Years, the Button Across the Street is now a Parking Lot. 23 Years ago I was in England at a Railway Station and an English Guy remarked 'Eve You Ever Been in the Boo-ton in Ft. Lauderdale? Said he had been there When he was in the Royal Navy and how Well he had been Treated in South Florida, good. Guess half the people in the Western Hemisphere had been in There. Always Wanted to go to Freeport, Bahamas as I was in Nassau 20 Years Ago. 6 Hour Boat Ride included a Good Breakfast Buffet and an Open Bar, little early for that. Asked Around and got a Good Hotel for $90 a Night, Lucayan Beach is Really Great, Beautiful. You're always Hearing about White-Sand Beaches and I've Never Seen One Yet although I've Seen Black and Red. Downtown Freeport is full of Crackheads but that's Ok. After a Couple Days back to Ft. Lauderdale less than a hundred miles away. Good Dinner Buffet included and I had a Stiff Whiskey and Water at the Open Bar. The Bartender who Poured It later was Doing a Great Juggling Act out on the Dancefloor, some Asian Guy, he could go on TV. There was a Band and a lot of people Danced and some were Good Dancers. Not me, I haven't been keeping up on it and didn't want to go out there and just shake about. The Boat Rides were Quite Good but both Coming and Going it took a Long Time to Disembark from the Boat, they make a big production out of it, in Europe they just Get off the Boat. In Lauderdale it was about 10 P.M. and Raining and all the Taxis that were supposed to be there Weren't and I asked Can I just Walk out of Here and was told I Could, I Walked a Quarter-Mile just to get out of the Pier Confines, fortunately there was a nearby Walgreen's that was open 24 Hours and I asked them to Call me a Cab, they were Quite Nice and I Rode to the Greyhound Station to go up to Gainesville, Stephanie's old haunts. Bought my Ticket, $71, just before the Bus left. Jacob "Baby Jake" Matlala was a Black South African Boxer whose Career was from 1979 to 1999. On July 19, 1997 he fought Michael Carbajal and the 4'10" Matlala sliced-up the much taller at 5'5" Carbajal to take the IBO Flyweight Crown (112 pounds). This was a Tremendous Upset. Should I Ever Borrow Money from the now "48" "Baby Jake" Matlala I'll be Sure to Repay it Quickly in Case he Has Something Left.

90% of the People who come to Las Vegas to Gamble Leave Saying that They Won Money, in Reality 90% of Them Lost Money, They've Daydreamed About It for so Long They Think It's True. Geronimo Killed Mexicans every Chance he Got as They Had killed His Family in His Youth, He had had a Vision that No Bullet Could Kill Him and It's Thought that His Name which was actually a Nickname Came from Mexican Soldiers that he was Attacking Calling Out to St. Jerome for Protection. Other Chiricahua Apaches were Attracted to Him as They Thought Him to Have "Strong Medicine" and He Became a Great Leader. Geronimo died in 1909 from Natural Causes as Old as "85." Every Place is Hot During the Summer, Some more than Others. General Phil Sheridan was Sent Out West after the Civil War on Army Business and Came Back Saying, If All I Owned Was Texas and Hell I'd Rent Out Texas and Live in Hell. I Don't Know why the Clintons are So Estatic About Chelsea Marrying Into a Family Where the Groom's Father Just Got Out of the Joint a Couple Years Ago after Doing 5 Years for Fraud. I See Where Mrs. Clinton and Chelsea are Practicing Methodists, My Mother was a Methodist and Both her Grandfathers were Methodist Ministers, She was a Convert to Catholicism. Her Father, my Grandfather was a 32nd Degree Mason, a Secret Society I've Seen Them Set Up for Their Meetings, They Put Blankets Over the Windows. I Suspect No Nefarious Doings, Think They Do Good. I Flew to Miami from Mexico City and Stayed in South Beach for 3 Days, SoBe, It's Only Become a Really in Place over the Past Maybe 15 Years before that was Cheap. Miami is my Favorite Beach in the World. Went on the Everglades Tour and that was Dynamite and Just $49. A Lady Said She had done it from Ft. Lauderdale and Liked that Better as You Don't Have to Go as Far to the 'Glades, Pretty Long Ride. It's Really Neat, go on the AirBoat and See all These Things you've Seen on TV, Have a Picture of Me Holding a 3 Foot Long Alligator, not at all Slimy Like You'd Think but Really Dry and Sort of Like Holding a Big Leather Bag. Bought a RT Ticket to Freeport, Bahamas for $150 on the 6 Hour Boat, this was Out of Ft. Lauderdale 3 Days from Then.
