Recently on the PBS they've had the story of Bonnie and Clyde, the outlaw-lovers were killed in an ambush near Gibsland, Louisiana, on May 23, 1934, by a 6-man posse headed by famed lawman, Frank Hamer (Francis Augustus Hamer, March 17, 1884 to July 10, 1955). A former cowboy, Frank Hamer was a Texas Ranger, off and on, and worked in other law enforcement. He considered criminals to be the "lowest form of humanity," saying that the best cure for a life of crime was ...a .45 slug in the gut... As Bonnie and Clyde's infamy spread, Hamer was sought to put an end to their crime-spree, culminating in the colorful-couple's demise. 26 thou had been pledged as reward-money for Bonnie and Clyde's capture or death, but after this result the promised-money evaporated (hey, there was a Depression on), such that the lawmen had to split a mere $200 6-ways. Ah, but Frank Hamer had been promised the cache of Bonnie and Clyde's weapons, and the BAR's and other guns at face-value would be worth quite a bit, and probably more due to their notoriety. During Frank Hamer's career as lawman he was wounded 14 times, and was credited with killing as few as 53 and as many as 70. Frank is buried in Austin near his son, Billy, who died on Iwo Jima.
Of late, I haven't had any Hits at all from Russia, shucks. Last week's Sign Of The Apocalypse in S.I. was that gymnast, Marisa Dick, had a move named for her, well, their reputation has been racy for some time. Valley High School (Greg Maddux) is across the street from my gym, and on Monday it was announced that a married, young, white, teacher had been arrested, as she had been caught having sex in a classroom with a physically large, 16-year old retardate. Previously she had been lauded for her excellent instruction (...Must the teacher stand so near, my love...), and in the video she looked pretty-decent. As the police led her away in handcuffs, the object of her affection was heard to yell ...You're taking my girlfriend... I put in this juicy, as I knew you'd be titillated, as your minds are in the guttah. On Sat. I heard someone ask a guy he knew who he liked in the Playoffs, saying that whomever he picked that he would bet the opposites

Soon will be the 30th anniversary of the "Challenger Disaster," Jan. 28, 1986. I knew one of the astronauts, Judy Resnik, slightly in high school, at Akron Firestone. She was Jewish, quite pretty, and known to be extremely-bright, especially in Math. I'd see her, at say, basketball games, and was surprised, as I would have thought her to stay at home studying books, so I knew that she liked to go out, altho I didn't know to that extent. An elementary school in West Akron is named for Judy. She was a year behind me, in the same class, of 1966, at Akron Firestone was Stu Powrie, who was a member of the Blue Angels Precision Flying Team, Lt. Commander Powrie's plane crashed during training, on Feb. 22, 1982. I didn't know Stu Powrie, at all, but knew who he was, he seemed the All American Boy. Christa McAuliffe, was going to be the "Teacher in Space" on the Challenger, and her parents were at Cape Canaveral to see her lift-off. For the next 2 weeks, whenever you turned on the TV to watch the News, you'd see video of Christa's parents' reactions, as they watched their daughter die
Donald really knows how to off-the-competition, must have learned it from business. I didn't know that Ted Cruz had Canadian Citizenship at birth--this disqualifies him from the American Presidency. I don't have a thing against Ted, but the U.S. Constitution specifically states that only a "native born" person can be President, and this same Constitution does not recognize "dual citizenship." I'm constantly hearing that so and so has both U.S. and some-other-country citizenship, this is impossible--don't you people ever read the U.S. Constitution? The litany of what's wrong with you is extensive. And Ted knows this (what's in the Constitution, not what's wrong with you people, well, maybe that, too) better than others, a brilliant-man, apparently Ted memorized the U.S. Constitution while in High School. Scott bet Trump to win the Republican Nomination on an off-shore account, got in at plus280, can't do that now, man, that's a good bet. Sat. Nite on ShowTime was a tremendous fight, with Deontay Wilder defending his WBC Heavyweight Championship, which I saw him take-from Bermane Stiverne a year ago at the MGM, from Artur Szpilka, of Poland. Szpilka is plenty-good, but in the last part of the 9th round, Artur was close to landing a left, when Deontay, whose forte are wide-arcing punches delivered from his 6'7" height, countered with a short-right that was as beautiful as anything you'll see in Boxing, with Szpilka dropping like a rock, and everyone was scared that Artur was dead, as he just lied there motionless, and for a long-time. But after a while he started to move, he should find some other occupation. Luke Fury was in attendance, Luke is the linear Heavyweight Champion and holds all the other alphabet-titles other than the WBC, a Fury-Wilder match-up will be something. Deontay is the Great Black Hope
Lately, I've had more Hits from Russia and the Ukraine, than the U.S., those Slavs like that Teuton-stuff. I'm doing this Blogging, got other stuff to do, as you yokels would go into withdrawal should I not, your mouths would open and close like a fish, in a couple months you'd die. All this increasing filthy language in periodicals and on TV offends the proper Ed, I think that's why they do it. North Carolina got its nickname, the "Tarheel State" in a less than complimentary way. During the lst Bull Run, North Carolinians were being driven-back by the Federals and Mississippians observing this wryly remarked ...Y'all should tar your heels... Mississippians are brave, everyone knows that. I saw The Eagles in concert in 1974, during their heyday. I was with a bunch of people, and I was so full of beer, reefer, and whiskey, that I was uncomfortably dry, and I really couldn't get to a far-away water fountain due to the crush. The Eagles were very good, RIP Glenn. This thing with McKayla has been going-on since the last Olympics and it's almost time for the next (August 5 to 21). Now, I'm an Aryan and McKayla is only a Mick, but there was a big mutual-attraction, and I liked her a lot, and was going to make an allowance. But she attacked-me viciously, wanting to make me feel as bad as humanly-possible, and for no good reason. I feel terrible about it, but there's been too much bad water under the bridge, had things gone well, I would have allowed her to take-me-to-husband. I would think that she and everyone else would understand my position

I told Mark, it's gonna be a heck of a game (he bet Alabama and gave the points, just $50 to increase interest), and what a treat. A slug-fest between 2 great opponents with the last-man-standing. The onside-kick gave Alabama the ball, the momentum, and the game. I had never seen an onside-kick recovered where it just sailed-through-the-air and was caught like a pass, all the others I've seen were just pounded-on-the-ground with "English" on them. Congratulations to Clemson for a noble-effort, unfortunately, somebody had to lose, I'm sure they didn't enter the locker-room cheering, we covered. And now Nick, one of the greatest Croats to ever come-out of W. Virginia, has 5 National Championships, that plus Lou Holtz' makes it 6 for former Kent State players, somebody learned something there.
When I was real-little, like 3-years old, we lived next to a pond (my Old Man returned from WW 11, sired-me and would soon have a house built), and there were all these frogs in the pond and I would play with them. When I was in High School I took Biology, and in College I took Biology and Zoology, and in all 3 they wanted us to dissect frogs, and I'd just move-around the table and make-out like I was doing something, I couldn't do it, frogs had been my friends. There was a skit on The Muppets where Telly Savalas was sitting at a bar, with his girl-friend on his left, and Kermit on her left. All at once, Telly's girlfriend turns to him saying ...He touched me... ...Then you better check yourself for warts...
Lately, I've had as many Hits from Russia as the U.S., if you know why, tell me. The mentality of some-one who would place their shoes on the back of the seat in front of them in a movie theater, I always sit in the last-row. Nothing is as dangerous as a Mexican with a weedblower, they blow dirt all over you and your car, and what a horrible-noise. For the most part, dirt that nobody would notice is blown and everybody notices it. In Las Vegas and San Diego, big chunks are missing on the main-drags, damaging our cars, why would things have gotten so out-of-hand. I had tremendous-timing on my trip last Spring to the Middle East and Europe, those places imploded just-after my return in mid-June. If McKayla knew how to act like a normal-person, I would have taken her with me, this would have salved her painful-existence and she would have returned renewed. McKayla is a fallen woman, and I'm not a religious figure, a forgiver of sins (think Jesus and Mary Magdalene)

I go thru life feeling like a swineherd. When Treasury Sec., Jack Lew, left Citigroup in 2009, he received the 1 mil bonus stipulated in his contract for taking "...Any full time high level position with the U.S. government or regulatory body..." This is an indication of why the federal government is allowing Citibank to egregiously rip-me-off (See My Blog for June 21, 2015 and Oct. 8, 2015), the federal government itself is a fraudulent enterprise. I want you to call Stacey Moon (what kind of name is that) and tell her of your disapproval of Citibank's illicit business practices

Meadowlark Lemon passed recently at "83," I saw him with the Harlem Globetrotters in Frankfurt, Germany in Jan. 1955, with my father and older brother, he and they brought a lot of joy to a glub-world, he'll be missed. That Shiite Cleric who was amongst the 47 executed in Saudi Arabia, I think he was hanged. For criminals, they behead them, I once read about the, well, head-executioner, in Saudi Arabia, who does this. He said that when he was in the Army, after evening prayers on Friday, when they do this, that he would go and watch, and thought, that's for me. He got paid by piece-work, it ended with ...I want to cut-off more heads and make more money... such ambitions. I always contribute $500 to the ASPCA on Jan. 6, the Feast of the Epiphany, a Holy Day of Obligation (go to Mass), and also my paternal grandmother's birthday, she seemed to like animals. Indira (answers in Canada) thanked me for my "generosity," that's not much, and I expect this from each of you. To make it easy, it's 1-212-876-7700. I just came-across this receipt from the "Camellia Hotel" at 81 Thuoc Bac Str., Hanoi, Vietnam, where I stayed for a couple nights in May, 2005, and I wish I had come-across it earlier. I had a nice, big, room for 7.50 U.S. a nite, and it was so muggy that I took 4 showers a day. To the left of the hotel as you're facing-it from the street was a hovel where some lived some scuzzy family. And in front of their residence they kept a small-cage with 2 adult cats within. One of them seemed accustomed to his very cramped quarters, but the other cat was going-out-of-his mind, as he wanted to move about freely and not be tortured in this very-constricted space. I spoke to these people, they didn't know English but knew exactly what I was saying from my harsh-tone while looking at them while pointing at the cage. They were unmoved, these who lived in this hovel weren't the sharpest blades in the drawer, who knows what were their motives. All the other Vietnamese felt exactly about it as you and me, they wanted to help the cats but didn't know what to do, they said that in Vietnam, animals have no rights. This was a long-time ago, and I'm really sorry that I didn't come-across this receipt earlier, but I wonder if that scum-family is still living there and if this situation exists today.
