My friend, Warner (1st name), was a Flight Engineer in the Air Force, and said that he never would have allowed that AirAsia plane to fly in that weather. I've taken the Ferry from Patras, Greece to Bari and Brindisi, Italy, or the other way, a number of times. I'm surprised at this recent disaster. The one time going from Patras to Bari, I opted as always for the el cheapo fare, but that time instead of being allowed to sleep in the lounge they made me stay on-deck, it was night-time and I was only wearing a ban-lon and it was cold as heck. I covered-myself with newspapers and that helped-some. It was a long, rough, night. I was eager to jump-in for 5 thou on one of the New Year's 'Dogs, but after further research backed-away. Both are 9 points, but Scott has Florida State down by only 3 Points in his estimation, and he doubled-down on them. In what will probably be a shootout, will Mariota or Winston be the last-man-standing? Will Scott prove to be a Seer?
In popular lore since WW 11, the French are always depicted as having been against the German Occupation (the Nazis went through the weak French like a hot-knife through butter), often working for the Resistance. When you talk to the Old Guys who were there after D-Day they tell you that the French didn't like the Americans, they say the Germans paid them better. I've had an inordinate number of Hits from France lately, Ed will lead you Silly Old Frogs out of your usual Chaos if you pay me real good (hey, they're mercenary). When you go to the Zoo you'll notice that a lot of the Monkeys resemble Kim Jong Un. This past Saturday, there was an impromptu Rally in Cleveland by Thousands in Support of the Police, those people want law and order not the anarchy for which those degenerates have been marching. One of the Speakers was a young woman whose fiance was an Akron Policeman shot-to-death there last month by a Lunatic waving a gun threatening the people in a crowded-bar. The off-duty Policeman tried to get the Gunman to leave the bar, by all-accounts he saved the lives of others. Tiffany Miller said she won't be getting married this June. Cleveland has always been a very-rough town. Detroit Ave. used to be a string of seedy-bars, I've been there with my younger brother, Tom, to look around. I lived in Kent my last 5 years in Ohio, and my room-mate was from Cleveland. His cousin was beaten-to-death on Detroit Ave. by Hillbillies with baseball-bats

Nike has always been first by a wide-margin in the Sale of Athletic Apparel, with Adidas a respectable 2nd. However, over the past year Under Armour surpassed Adidas in this regard, leading Adidas to hitch-themselves to McKayla to pull-them past the Usurpers, to regain their rightful Market Share. McKayla is a can-do Gal and I know that she'll be successful (being even more of a noble character).
The number of hits I've had just recently, aww, you folks were thinking of Ed at Christmas, that's so cute. Anderson Varejao lost to an Achilles is a devastating-blow for the Cavs. Making-out like Black People are no more likely to commit crimes than White People might be unrealistic, the FBI recently-stated that most bank robbers are Black Males. I was "67 and a half" on Christmas, when I tell people that and say so when is my Birthday, nobody can figure this out, all one has to do is add or subtract 6 months, it's June 25. I always did know that, when I was "10," on Christmas as we were heading to the Officer's Club in our big Buick (everybody had one, those were the days) for the Festivities and Buffet, I thought, hmmm, today I'm halfway to being an Adult. Pretty-good for a little boy, huh. Nobody saw Fracking producing such a resounding effect and so quickly, Repeal the Ban on U.S. Oil Exports, let the Free Market reign, always. Barry was recently thumping his chest, and he has looked-good, saying that Vlad was depicted as the ChessMaster outmaneuvering him and the U.S. and now look at him. Energy is the only-arrow in Russia's Quiver, there could be Armed-Uprisings from those discontent seeing their Purchasing-Power half that of a year ago. Vlad (Muammar Gadaffi), knowing when to get out-of-town is one of the best things you can ever learn.

The late Ted Stepien was once (1981 to 1983) the colorful owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Ted decided that for a publicity-stunt he should throw 3 softballs from the top of the Terminal Tower, one dented a car another broke a woman's arm, Ted was a wild-one. It was these Weak-Minded Marchers (trying to liven-up their dull lives) who egged-on that Creep who smoked those 2 Policemen in New York. Bed-Sty is a horrible-place, it can easily get so that no Cops are willing to go in there. A half-year ago 2 Policemen in Las Vegas were shot to death as they ate Lunch. Maybe nobody will be willing to be a Policeman anywhere in the U.S. Those disgusting Marchers laying-down on that filthy-pavement. Bermane Stiverne, 3rd-Ranked Heavyweight will meet Deontay Wilder, 6th-Ranked Heavyweight in "The Ring's" most-recent Ratings at the MGM on Jan. 17, and I'll be there. It's very-rare that such highly ranked Heavyweights collide (Stiverne is 24-1-1 with 21 Knockouts and Wilder is 32-0 with 32 Knockouts against inferior competition). Deontay has never been-in with anyone like Bermane, who I think will win. I got my seat next to the Camera, maybe you'll see me walk-in front of it or something, it's on Showtime, which I get but much more Fun to be there. Look for Thunder to Roll. I was real-suprised to learn that the reclusive Al Haymon who controls so much of Boxing, is Black. Al has an M.B.A. from Harvard and look at what he's accomplished, so they can do it if they put their minds to it (no rhyme intended). But wait, Black People like rhymes ...They Can Do It If They Put Their Minds To It... ...They Can Do It If They Put Their Minds To It... I could see this sweeping the Nation
Ed is sad and lonely for the big money he deserves, all these dime a dozen people pulling down heavy-readers and him not bothers Ed a great deal. Sorry about Jabari Parker being lost for the rest of the NBA Season, I saw him play and well this past Summer. Browns Stadium and the R and R Hall of Fame are right on Lake Erie, and you can look out on the beautiful huge lake. The first Europeans to see the Great Lakes were French Explorers who were amazed at the size of what were Seas of Fresh Water. Indeed, 21% of the World's fresh water are these. The Great Lakes are extremely treacherous with vast numbers of sunken-boats since the first Men began using them. These Eastern European Types' goal used to be a Good-Paying blue-collar job that they could work for 30 or 40 years enabling them a pretty high standard of living, they could own a house and a couple of new cars (hardly any of these jobs left in this Country). I knew a guy who knew a guy who had had a hard-time finding a "Good Job." Finally, this young fellow did find one, as a Great Lakes Sailor, and his Ship was the "Edmund Fitzgerald" (See the lyrics for Gordon Lightfoot's "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald"). Be careful what you want, you might get it.

Ed wants to make lotsa money, and deservedly so. In today's "Dear Abby," a woman says that her co-worker is "deaf," what she means is that she won't listen to her. In her reply, Abby indicates that she believes that this co-worker actually is deaf. I enjoy your column, but really, darling. The late Stevie Ray Vaughan was way overdue for inclusion in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I've been there twice, so has a friend of mine, you're really missing-out by not going, do you think we go there because we don't want to be there. It's next to Browns Stadium, and a nice walk from Indians Stadium and Cavs Arena in the beautiful downtown--those tunes that quicken the pulse, Cleveland Rocks! One of the weirdest things I've seen, I was reading "Newsweek," and saw a picture of this dead Negro propped-up in what seemed to be a Cadillac Seville with a jaunty hat, red suit, and his hands on the steering-wheel. It was a facsimile-coffin, it had a front windshield, functioning headlights, white-wall tires, he had diamond-rings with several hundred dollar bills stuck between his fingers. This was Willie Stokes, Jr., known as Willie the Wimp, a big drug-dealer who was gunned-down in Feb., 1984. His father, Willie Stokes, Sr., a really-big drug dealer had wanted to immortalize his child, and did so as best he could. Willie Sr. was himself gunned-down 2 years later. ...Southside Chicago Will Think of Him Often, Talkin' About Willie the Wimp and his Cadillac Coffin... ...Willie the Wimp...
I don't watch anything on the CW, but when I channel-surf everybody on the CW looks glum. Tis' the Season... She was very mean to me and I got over it, and I wish her well. She's a great Gal in her own way and she should continue to do what she has been doing, I wish her great success (I'm sort of a noble character in this). We're kind of star-crossed lovers, that is so romantic

The Giants winning 3 out of 5 of the past World Series is amazing considering there's 30 Major League Teams. Madison Bumgarner and Buster Posey as Battery-Mates almost seems as though Baseball is returning to its roots as a Rural Southern Game, they learned it in Union Prisoner-of-War Camps. Madison is the best Money Pitcher of All-Time. Scott and his friend took a variety of weapons, amongst them a Kalashnikov, out to the very good rifle and pistol range in Las Vegas, bet that was fun, I've never shot one. Scott won good on Mariota winning the Heisman, he's doubling-down on taking Fla. State and the Points. Mikal Gilmore is an acclaimed author and was a long-time writer for "Rolling Stone." The brother of Gary Gilmore, yes.., who's I.Q. was tested at 133, Mikal was the youngest of 4 brothers, and his father's favorite, whereas his brothers were severely beaten thus making them mean, Mikal was not and amounted to something. I've been to Yellowstone a couple times, the last time I ran out of gas due to a leaky fuel pump. I called the Rangers and 2 brought me gas enough, at an exorbitant price, to get me to West Yellowstone. One noticed that I had an opened 12-Pack of beer, no beer cans or anything, and proclaimed this "Probable Cause," to see if I was driving intoxicated. No Probable Cause at all. I probably had popped a few the night before but this was the afternoon of the next day, somebody owning unopened beer meant nothing. They had me try to walk in a straight-line, which I did as well as I usually do. This was the only time in my life that I had to do anything like this. My car was pulled over to the side of the road, and the Rangers were conducting their mighty test of myself also on the side of the road, which was one lane in each direction. The Tourists in their Vehicles were making-out like they had Dillinger, with Traffic voluntarily stopping for a hundred yards each way
After Ohio State routed U. Wisconsin, their Star, Melvin Gordon ...We just wasn't playing Wisconsin football... They teach English at U. Wisconsin? New Hampshire's State Motto is ...Live Free or Die... When Wisconsin was selecting a State Motto somebody's suggestion was ...Eat Cheese or Die... I said this in the New Hampshire State Capitol and they laughed, I said this in the Wisconsin State Capitol and they saw no humor. All these Marches by people with nothing else to do over 2 incidents, if they want the Police to lessen their efforts in these Black Ghettos, it'd be Chaos. Law Enforcement hasn't always been as subtle and refined as it is today. In 1966, during the Race Riots in Hough (pron. huff), the Cleveland Police Chief said ...Go in there and whip heads...
Mary Ann Mobley passed recently at "77," one of the most beautiful of the Miss Americas. Miss America in 1958 while a student at the U. of Mississippi, Mary Ann's successor as Miss America in 1959 was Lynda Mead, also a student at the U. of Mississippi and Mary Ann's Chi Omega Sorority Sister. In 1960 the U. of Mississippi won a shared National Championship in Football, so Ole Miss was doing well in those days. Mary Ann died from Breast Cancer, my Mother died from this, long and lingering, she's gone to a better place. If someone has the inclination to make me wealthy, you may do so

Before I went Online I had lotsa Hits. If I stopped my Blog you Readers would Wither Away like the Wicked Witch of the West (after 2 months ...I can't take any more, I'm withering away...) I went to that Post Office I spoke of on Tuesday at 9:30 A.M., whereas in the past at this time of the year, there'd be a line out-the-door, there were only 2 possible customers present (people want packages sent and received, not stolen). Over the past couple years, all this Bad Language in Newspapers, Magazines, regular network TV Shows, I think they do it because I dislike it so much (I was watching the CMT and some tattooed geek was singing how if he's lucky he'll get (slang term for sex). I'm telling you, the Mass Media has the Mark of the Beast, when they go home they take off their clothes and run-around on all fours baying)

These Marches throughout this Country and even in foreign lands, over Ferguson and New York are Stupid. That Thug outside of St. L got what he deserved, the unfortunate incident in New York was egregious, but don't They Think that the Police in both Places have done a lot more Good than Bad, for every bad thing they've done a hundred good things. The People on these Marches must not have much to do. Bernard Hopkins did well to survive 12 Rounds at 175 lbs. against Sergey Kovalev on Nov. 8. Knocked Down for only the 5th Time in his 26-Year Pro Career (he's never been Cut, those Cookies), and "50" in January, Bernard with his Good Intelligence (his own manager for the past 20 years) and Virtuous Intents would make a fine Elected Official---a Paragon ever since he left prison at "23." And shouldn't Barry be thinking of giving Bernard a Pardon for his youthful indiscretions (6 Felonies), Bill Clinton, as he left Office, gave some Hispanic a Pardon who was in Prison for moving 800 lbs. of Cocaine. Bernard was only the 4th Fighter to last past the 7th Round with Sergey, in 2011, Kovalev killed a man in the Ring in Russia, that is, he died after 3 days. It didn't bother Sergey much, if at all, Bernard faced a dangerous opponent. When I go home I'm doing Christmas Cards, and one I send will be, as last year, to Ted Kaczynski. Ted, inadvertently, did so much for his Country and has paid his Debt to Society, let the Old Guy out (See My Blogs for Jan. 6, 2009, Feb. 18, 2013, Oct. 1, 2013, and Dec. 10, 2013). Can you imagine what Christmas is like for people in Prison, send Ted a Christmas Card or something else that he might like: No. 04475-046, U.S. Penitentiary-Max, P.O. Box 8500, Florence, Colorado, 8126-8500 I've Often Preferred the Charming Rogue to the Bland Fellow
When I was a Grad Student at Kent State I saw Nick Saban and Gary Pinkel play for the Golden Flashes, also I saw Pinkel play for Akron Garfield. Wisconsin was favored by 4 points over Ohio State and the Bucks trounced them, I've never seen anything like it, Wisconsin left Indy with Smoke Rising From Them. Scott, a pro oddsmaker, says that Alabama is a Beast and that OSU won't be able to stay with them. He said Florida State and the Points over Oregon is likely to succeed, and he's bet it. I love to Gamble, and I'll put 10 thou on a Sportsbet. Not for Decades, but I used to Drive Legally Drunk constantly, also Drunk and on Reefer, often most days of the year. Well, if you went to a bar or party, you couldn't just stay there, you had to get home. I've done this literally thousands of times, and like that Randy Travis Joke, I believed that my Driving was Better When I was Drunk because I was more careful, I was never Pulled-Over. I'm Available to Speak on My Life to School Assemblies and Church Groups.
I'm living at Flamingo and Swenson in Las Vegas. It's a heavily-populated Area and my apartment-complex is 350 Units, my 1-bedroom is located towards the front, it's the one with the Big Red-Bow in the Picture Window (I dyed it to make it darker). Jumbo Jets from McCarran Airport are constantly flying over this heavily-populated Area which is a mile and a half away from the Airport. The Federal Aviation Authority (the FAA) should Distribute This Bounty or Not Send The Planes Over Our Neighborhoods at All, as Other Areas are not as Populated. In the Past, all my Requests of this Nature to the FAA have Been Granted
I don't have a thing against McKayla and I wish her well. Due to all the Pub I gave her she signed with the same Agency that handles Taylor Swift (I've seen a picture of them embracing, friendship I'd say), the Agency has a tie-in to NBC, she shills for Adidas--and she's become Wealthy, all this is off My Back, and I'm glad to be so helpful. But it Galls Me that I've been Ignored and live in Poverty. Unlike McKayla, who'll never be happy, but being unhappy and Rich is a lot better than unhappy and poor, I'd be very happy if I could Make a Lot of Money. And then I'd be in the Mood to Seek Women, and then I'd be Happier Yet. Everybody I see on National TV makes a lot of money, and Who Couldn't Do It? None of the Aforementioned other than myself have SuperHuman Powers, so how Just is it that They're Wealthy and I'm Poor? Mick is promiscuous and a lesbian and I wouldn't want her for either of these, I had thought she was sugar and spice. And I question the Mentality of Someone who would put nude poses of herself on the Internet. But I never thought she'd get a Felony or Prison Term, she was young, that Guy who Assisted her wasn't Underage and the Feds can probably get him for this. Anyway, her Background will Jazz-Up her Image and she'll sell even more Athletic Garb or Whatever. I'm not going to be Happy if I have nothing to be happy about. So Give Me My Just Due, Evil People. Happy 19th, Beautiful

Anyone would think that the watch I'm wearing must be quite expensive. This unmanned thing they're sending into Space is unimpressive, NASA landed a man on the moon in July, 1969 and should have landed a man on Mars by 1985 at the latest, the Feds have gone cheap on the Space Program which should have been enhanced, instead they spend money on Illegal Aliens and other inanities (?). Tyson Fury (See My Blog for Aug. 25, 2013) is Vladimir Klitschko's likely next opponent. Hayden Panettierre is 8 months pregnant by Vlad (his nickname is Dr. Steelhammer), but supposedly they're not getting along at the present, we're hoping this will change for the better. I saw Scott at the gym this past Mon., I hadn't seen him in 6 weeks, we shook hands. I told him that I had always noticed his strong grip, and we decided to grip right hands to see if one could get the better of the other (See My Blog on Dan Hodge, Aug. 10, 2009), I think Scott did better, well, he's a powerful man. He said, now let's do left hands, it had been fun but that was enough for me. See My Blog on Geronimo, Aug. 1, 2010, when things are named after Indians it's due to their bravery and skill in battle, it's never pejorative.
Black People's Histrionics Gets Me, they feel obliged to take to the streets over much of anything. Of Late, Black People have been Complaining that they're excessively targeted by the Police as Possible Criminals, maybe it's not excessive and it's because a lot of them are criminals. Barry's Flaunting of UnConstitutionality is also setting a bad example for them. George Will noted that the Federal Government has Tomahawk Missiles, and Apache and Lakota Helicopters and that the Raid that killed Osama was codenamed--Geronimo, but that the Feds object to the Name of D.C.'s NFL Team. When I was in Manhattan 2 years ago this past Spring I saw 3 Cops, 2 men and a woman questioning a Street Vendor on E. 42nd St. near 8th Ave., who was selling Watches, apparently his license was in order as the Police walked away. 3 Policemen to do this trifle, they had nothing else, say, like Crime, to take-up their time. The Vendor, a Black Guy, who said he was given the License since he was a Vet, was selling nice-looking watches for $5, no tax. I bought the 2 best-looking Men's Watches, he had quite a few, one for me and one for my bud, Scott. As I was walking away I said ...Lance, you're wonderful...
"The Watch Store" at the Riverside Hotel and Casino in Laughlin has over 20 thou Watches and is the largest watch store extant, with most watches $20 or less. Every Blue Moon they salt a Rolex in there amongst the usual watches, and if you come upon it you can buy it for $20, a good deal. They've done this 13 times during the 20 years of its existence, the most recent was this past August, oh, what was I doing in August that I couldn't have been there? Also, at the Riverside is their very impressive and extensive Classic Car Collection, free. Laughlin, on the Colorado River, is always a lot of inexpensive and relaxing fun (the Riverside is Don Laughlin's Hotel).

McKayla hasn't put any of those pictures with writing on them in my computer lately, that's progress. An unhappy girl, she knows that I'm the only person in the world who can make her happy, an age-difference, but it could be a lot worse, had I never been born it would be nobody. I offered myself and McKayla initially was super-eager, but soon backed-away from this as she believes herself to be undeserving of me, and undeserving of happiness. A beautiful, smart, girl like McKayla could have done me a lot of good. Microwaves have been around for 40 years and I still don't know how to use one, I've never Microwaved anything. I thought that McKayla could cook for us, Microwave anyway
I have a friend who was a Translator for a Year at Guantanimo right after it was Set-Up, a Real Patriot, and he says that the Prisoner-Compound should have been Shut-Down 10 Years Ago, heck yes. I'm always reading "I could care less," it's "I couldn't care less." The Incompetent Jeanne Goodrich, who was Dir(ctor of the Clark County Library District, has Retired, good. The Library Employees (Teamsters Union) signed a Fine Contract a year ago, but why the Taxpayers would give them this is beyond me, Who Couldn't Do It? This Year, they got not only Thansgiving but the day after off, the day after Tgiving they called "Family Day" and declared this a Holiday (?) Increasingly, the Difference between the Librarians and the Transients Blurs. My Older Brother knew that Ohio State Football Player who Shot Himself (was a Wrestler). He knows a lot of the Ohio State Players as well as those at other Schools, he knows a lot of NFL Players. An Extroverted and Active Guy, he knows a lot. When one has had a number of concussions it leads to Dementia Pugilistica and Depression, that poor guy probably had everything going for him except this. I got Ken Jennings' (hey, Mormon Genius) "Kennections" right this week, it was pretty easy. I used to be a "Jeopardy" Addict but gave it up as I might affect the Final Outcome. I got the Final Question right half the time, but I once missed 6 in a row. One of the Contestants said ...If You Think Your Brain Is Strong, Jeopardy Will Prove You Wrong... I'm at the mercy of the Library's Internet Current
I can't understand all this Cackling about me being robbed at the U.S. Post Office, about everybody uses the Postal Service especially at this time of the year. Recently in S.I. they were talking about Gregg Popovich, the Coach of the San Antonio Spurs, having a "wine collection," it's Wine Cellar. At the Chargers-Raiders Game there were quite a "Tatum 32" Jerseys, Bad Jack lives on forever. "Dumb and Dumber To" was raw but quite funny, "Annabelle" was real scary, having a Yuck and feeling chills up and down our Spines is good for us. A blood-test on Michael Brown only revealed MJ? Brown acted as though he was on PCP, Angel's Dust, when somebody is dangerous is when they're not afraid of being hurt. Brown was a Thug and I'm glad he's dead. I really felt bad about that Obese Guy in New York who the Cop killed by putting him in a Chokehold. The poor guy was selling single cigarettes and for that the Cops are going to Arrest him? He said "Leave Me Alone," were I in his situation I might be saying that as it makes no sense for the Cops to bother you over such a picayune thing. So far as Resisting Arrest, he just said leave me alone, he wasn't being violent so What's with this Chokehold? He weighed 400 lbs. but half that was Fat and his Physical Condition was obviously Delicate. That Cop Murdered that Poor Guy.
