I hope the Washington Post gets an exclusive. Their award-winning investigative department recently published a great piece of research on anthrax, and prior to that the research on the “Wedtech Scandal” here in the Bronx, NY. That was a big boondock boggle, over military bridges (like the ones the cigar smoking character played by Elliot Gould, got from the Brits, “Baileys” I think they’re called, in the film, “A Bridge Too Far”) supposedly built in an “economic empowerment zone” in the South Bronx, government graft, it was instead. The unsolved anthrax victim, a Vietnamese-American nurse, was from here in the Bronx, NY, Kathy Nguyen. Recently, “conscientious objectors” involved in anthrax experiments, were given medals, according to the WP’s book I read from the City Island Public Library. Go get ’em WP!
Dan Rather Wants To Reopen Memogate Investigation But CBS Bosses Have Forbidden Him Toâ€¦. | The Huffington Post
My cousin George Murray produced the 1976 “dimmycrats and ‘publicans” Conventions in 1976 for CBS (said ‘Little Lord Fauntleroy’ (Cedric Errol Fauntleroy) written by Ms. France(i)s Hodgson Burnett). His wife introduced Avon products in Mexico, where he died. Edwin Newman read at his eulogy in the United Nations Chapel a letter telling his crew in Vietnam (while producing ‘NBC Nightly News From New York’) that their long investigation into the common soldiers view of the conflict there had been cancelled by ‘higher ups’. Strickly speaking, I wasn’t at the eulogy. What I think is that the ranchero honchos read CBS’s back of the 9/11/01 DVD, and saw ‘5% of the profits’ will go to help those devastated by the events of 9/11/01 (9/10/01 the WTC was up for sale) and decided to do some old fashioned ‘range riding’ sometimes referred to in the folklore as the ‘midnight rider’ on Mr. Rather, even though in all of Debrett’s ‘Texas Peerage’ there is one Bush, a cattle king, not related to our schmegegge President.

Sounds like they should have named the hurricane â€œGeorge C. Scottâ€� from a film of a similar theme, though I think he lets the dolphins go. â€œDolphinâ€� is also the name of pier or post in the water so I also wouldnâ€™t be surprised if this is a â€œyarnâ€�. However having read â€œProgramming and Meta-programming in the Human Bio-computerâ€� by Dr. John C. Lily, when he was an Army psychiatrist working in LSD-25 and sensory deprivation experiments, the report cited and available through Stewart Brandâ€™s â€œWhole Earth Catalogâ€� back in the 1970â€™s, and watching him go on to â€œThe Mind of the Dolphinâ€� research in inter-species communication, I think we can accept that the story is probably true and I would like to object to its praxis, my kin coming from the North Atlantic right whale nursery, Grand Manan Island, NB, Canada.
Look at his butt, that scary white eye behind him is. At least the SEC is looking at Tasers and not his butt! I would like to thank them all, his crew, for keeping the question, “Is there anybody out there?” alive long enough to bring back Cosmos, started by the that guy, Carl Sagan, who never said, “…billions and billions” which is actually what our “expedition” to Southwest Asia is costing. General Schwartzkopf’s father did it in Iran, then ran the Lindbergh baby kidnapping investigation. Will history repeat itself, said by Karl Marx to always be a tragedy when it does?
Foster’s Online, Dover, New Hampshire: “Scientists hope to listen for whales so ships can avoid them”
Good shipping whale news…(29,000 moose in Maine can’t all be on the roads).
“In April, Otis Elevators celebrated the 150th anniversary of the modern elevator. Primitive elevators have existed since the building of the pyramids. However, in early models, it was common for the cord carrying the cab to break and kill people. This year, the company re-enacted Elisha Graves Otis’s safety demonstration at P.T. Barnum’s 1853 Crystal Palace Exhibition in New York City. Otis rode a platform in an open shaft and had the cables cut, but instead of his falling, safety gears kicked in and held him. Otis installed the first commercial passenger elevator on March 23, 1857, at a New York City department store. By the 1870s there were 2,000 Otis elevators in service.
There are no federal mandates on elevator safety. The U.S. government doesn’t require elevators to be inspected, or that elevator inspectors know what they’re doing. It’s up to individual states.”
One of my uncles, James Myers, whom I’ve never met, died in an elevator accident in NYC’s Hall of Records during WWII, where he was assisting my grandfather, Joseph Myers, a real estate reporter. Jim, the “philosopher” had polio as a youth and was confined to a wheelchair. A famous NY lawyer Basil O’Connor represented the case and was awarded $5000, a lot of money for the time. “Basil (Roman Catholic Church) the bishop of Caesarea who defended the Church against the heresies of the 4th century; a saint and Doctor of the Church (329-379)” WordWeb 3.03
Another uncle, Bill Myers, won a major league baseball contract and was celebrating with the advance in the South Street Seaport area, where our family was then, before moving to the Bronx, when an early morning newspaper delivery truck crashed into their parked car and broke both his legs. So much for the baseball career. We came to the Bronx when the Alfred E. Smith Houses were built (NYC’s oldest “projects” named for Al Smith, a famous Catholic politician from Peck Slip originally, celebrated at a dinner every year.) The Peck Slip Post Office there was once the universal address for all parking ticket transactions.
