Bob Hope said, “No one can fool all of the people all of the time. That’s why we have two parties.” And in regards to politicians, themselves, political wit, Mark Russell, says, “If you call your opponent a politician, it’s grounds for libel.”
Well folks, it’s here. 2016 is election year and politics has permeated the American consciousness. Every hour of every day is filled with news about the front-running candidates stumping for votes and partaking of that great political tradition of slinging mud, indiscriminately, at each other’s reputation. In the race to the White House tempers have flared and physical encounters have erupted and even speeches cancelled due to the threat of civil unrest. Watching the news on television or reading the newspaper headlines it seems apparent that the political world is critically in need of anger management. The other day I saw a bumper sticker which angrily proclaimed: “People say everything happens for a reason. So when I punch you in the face, remember I have a political reason.” Wow! Such open threats fly in the face of democratic ideals, tolerance, and the First Amendment. Instead of having a clash of ideas in a civil debate, we are having a physical clash tearing away at Voltaire’s pronouncement, “I disapprove of what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” If I had the choice of attending a heavyweight boxing match or a political rally, hmm, I might opt for the heavyweight fight if I wasn’t in the mood for too much violence. I guess the heavyweight question here is, ‘What has happened to politics?’ Amidst all of this turmoil and violence, political humor – now more than ever – can be a welcomed safety valve to vent animosity and restore sanity. For it seems apparent that it is truly impossible to laugh and be angry at the same time. There is certainly no shortage of political humor to revel in, and smile and even laugh at. We Americans need to rediscover our great political sense of humor that we once prided ourselves on. “Give ‘em Hell, Harry!” President Harry Truman’s earned nickname, took political humor to a new level, “My choice early in life was between whether to be a piano player in a whorehouse or a politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference.”
The strange world of politics has long been the target of jokes. President Ronald Reagan recognized this when he quipped, “Politics is the second oldest profession; it bears a very close resemblance to the first.” Reagan was no stranger to making political jokes, “I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through Congress.” And, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’”
Mark Twain (1835-1910) was a rascal in his observance of politicians: “Suppose you were an idiot. Now suppose you were a
The Paper - 760.747.7119
member of Congress. But I repeat myself.” Twain was never an admirer of deep taxes, once proclaiming, “What is the difference between a taxidermist and a tax collector? The taxidermist takes only your skin.”
A popular quote attributed to Henry Cate VII also takes a comedic swipe at politics and its practitioners, “The problem with political jokes is they get elected.” This celebrated political pun is a precursor to what satirist and American late-night television host of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart, said: “I don’t approve of political jokes. I’ve seen too many of them get elected.” Ex-marine and popular political wit, Mark Russell, has made a good living on PBS Specials and touring the nation to capacity crowds who turn out to hear his political humor. Russell is frequently
asked, “Do you have any writers?” Russell’s reply has remained unchanged, “Oh, yes. I have 535 writers. 100 in the Senate and 435 in the House of Representatives.” Mark Russell’s remark closely resembles Will Rogers’ statement, eighty-six years earlier: “I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.” Humorist Will Rogers (1879-1935) was one of America’s most beloved public figures. He travelled around the world three times and by the mid-1930s America took him to her bosom. He was many things: American cowboy, vaudeville performer, newspaper columnist and motion picture star who became the highest paid actor of his era, with 71 movies to his credit (50 silent films and 21 “talkies”). Rogers’ political wit had America bowled over with laughter, “Congress is deadlocked and can’t act. I think

that is the greatest blessing that could befall this country.” One of his remarks made an editor drop his hot cup of coffee, convulsing in uncontrollable laughter: “This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer.” (The Daily Telegram #1230, July 4, 1930.) Rogers was proud of his American heritage. He often quipped in variants, “I never had my Americanism doubted. My mother and my father both were part Cherokee Indian. My ancestors didn’t come over on the Mayflower, but they met the boat.” When Will Rogers died, tragically, in a 1935 airplane crash in Northern Alaska, an entire nation of Americans fell into deep mourning as if losing a family member. He was well-known as “Oklahoma’s Favorite Son,” but in reality, he belonged to America at large.

Perhaps the most famous political punch line of all time was spoken by Will Rogers: “I’m not a member of any organized political party – I’m a Democrat.” And regarding government taxation he made a whole country laugh at itself as only Will Rogers could and get away with it: “The income tax has made liars out of more Americans than golf.” Will Rogers made politics fun to read about when he began his nationally-syndicated newspaper column in December of 1921. Rogers’ funny political views became so widely popular that it became known as the “Weekly Article” and ran in every Sunday edition. The powerful New York Times newspaper saw a good thing and included Will Rogers’ funny opinions for its national readership. America felt good about itself and laughed in unison at Rogers’ hilarious political observations, “Ancient Rome declined because it had a Senate. Now what’s going to happen to us with both a House and a Senate?”
Speaking of Ancient Rome, exactly how old is political humor? And how far back does it go in human civilization? The roots of comedic commentary on politics go back at least 2,400 years, according to Robert W. Speel, professor of political science at Penn State University. But in actuality, it may trace back to even earlier beginnings. Before the written word, perhaps early drawings and rudimentary cartoons ridiculed early rulers or leaders of ancient tribes. No one knows for certain. Jessica Bloustein of Newsweek magazine made a funny (but possibly truthful) observation, “Those Paleolithic French cave paintings of horses? It’s a safe bet that at least one of them is an old-school political cartoon meaning, ‘Tribal leader Gary is a jackass.’” Thus far,
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! MOISHE!
For 30 years every day old Moishe ate at "Abe's Kosher Delicatessen." Old Moishe was an honored guest and had his own reserved stool at the counter. He was loved by everyone and was generous to all the servers and staff. Abe, the owner loved Moishe too.
One day Moishe didn't show at his regular time. Abe was worried a bit as he realized Old Moishe was a widower and lived alone but then got busy and forgot about Moishe's absence.
The next day ... no Moishe ... now Abe was worried ... he phoned Moishe's number and got no answer. He even called a few local hospitals and even called Moishe's daughter in Israel to no avail.
one of the oldest surviving examples of political satire date back to Aristophanes (born c. 446 – died c. 386 BC). In ancient Greece, Aristophanes used satirical political humor to attack the top politicians of his day, such as Cleon, as well as attacking religion (his views challenged the reality of Zeus). Because of lack of freedom of speech, Aristophanes clothed his anti-political and anti-religious opinions in the form of satirical stories. His disdain for politicians was expressed in his cynical remark, “Under every stone lurks a politician.” His satirical attacks against Zeus and the pantheon of ancient gods were so powerful that it led the general population into doubting the reality of these religious figures. Politicians were often the target of Aristophanes’ observations and viewpoints. An even older source than Aristophanes is the ancient Greek storyteller, Aesop (c. 620 – c 564 BC) whose satirical political views are masterpieces: “We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.” Unlike Aristophanes, no physical writings of Aesop survives. His fables and sayings only survive in ancient sources that only credit him and his work; such sources as Aristotle, Herodotus, and Plutarch, all of whom mention Aesop with great admiration. The great Greek philosopher, Plato (c. 428 – c. 347 BC), was a master of political wit and cynicism: “Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber.” Evaluated as one of the three greatest and wisest secular thinkers in human history, Plato did not spare the political rod: “Mankind will never see an end of trouble until lovers of wisdom come to hold political power, or the holders of power become lovers of wisdom.”
In more modern times political wit and humor seem omnipresent, becoming especially visible on American television during the 1960s. Both British and
Abe couldn't sleep that night wondering what had happened. Next day again no Moishe!
Now Abe was really concerned and just as he was about to call the cops and 911 he glanced out the window and saw Moishe going into "Goldberg's Deli" across the street.
Abe took off out the door and raced across the street narrowly missing getting hit by a bus and confronted Moishe just as he was sitting down. Abe screamed, "where the hell have you been! I lost sleep and spent good money phoning around about you and what are you doing here at Goldberg's ... you know he's my worst enemy! Explain to me Moishe!" Moishe looked at Abe and said calmly, "Settle down Abraham, settle down, you'll be having a heart attack. I'll be telling you what happened okay? I went to the dentist 3 days ago and had one of those root canals. Oy the pain! The dentist gave me some pills and said: ’Moishe, for a few days eat on the other side'! How a farm kid sees things ...
Only a farm kid would see it this way!
When you're from the farm, your perception is a little bit different.
A farmer drove to a neighbor’s farmhouse and knocked at the door. A boy, about 9, opened the door. "Is your dad or mom home?" said the
American television versions of the program, “That Was the Week That Was,” was a joint poke-in-the-ribs at politics and politicians. CBS’ “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour,” and NBC’s “Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In” often dabbled into the political arena with broad strokes of humor. In the months leading up to the 1968 presidential election, Richard Nixon appeared on Laugh-In with the catch phrase of the day, “Sock it to me.” Popular sitcoms used political humor, such as “All in the Family” (1971-1979), with brilliant actor, Carroll O’Connor (1924-2001), playing “Archie Bunker.” The smash hit show ran nine seasons, breaking new ground and making a nation laugh at real issues. One episode had Archie Bunker explode, “No bum that can’t speak poifect English oughta stay in this country . . . oughta be de-exported the hell outta here!” On another occasion, Archie gave us the benefit of his reasoning, “As our president said in his renegurial address. The guy went into the Capitol under the dome and was sellin’ the teapots on the side.” And liberals were always in Archie Bunker’s cross-hairs, “You liberals play the victim so well I’m surprised you don’t carry your own body chalk.” From “Saturday Night Live” to the real evening news and talk radio, political satire, sarcasm, cynicism, and outright humor is prevalent. Some humor may seem divisive while other forms cause serious reflection. Regarding the political wrangling over Gay Rights, comedian-actor Bill Maher weighs in with, “Let’s make a law that gay people can have birthdays, but straight people get more cake – you know, to send the right message to kids.” He pokes fun at the two main parties, “In America, if a Republican even thinks you’re calling him liberal he grabs an orange vest and a rifle and heads into the woods to kill something.” For Maher, nothing is sacred, not even the hallowed ground of religion, “I love Jesus. I just don’t like the Christians who don’t believe in what he says.”
"No, they went to town."
"How about your brother, Howard? Is he here?" "No, he went with Mom and Dad."
The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other, mumbling to himself, when the young boy says, "I know where all the tools are, if you want to borrow one, or I can give Dad a message." "Well," said the farmer uncomfortably. "No, I really want to talk to your Dad, about your brother Howard getting my daughter Suzy pregnant".
The boy thought for a moment, then says, "You'll have to talk to my Dad about that. I know he charges $500 for the bulls and $150 for the pigs, but I have no idea how much he charges for Howard." Holy E-Mail
One day God was looking down at earth and saw all of the rascally retirees' behavior that was going on. So He called His angels and sent one to earth for a time. When the angel returned, he told God, 'Yes, it is bad on earth; 95% of retirees are misbehaving and only 5% are not.'
God thought for a moment and said, 'Maybe I had better send down a second angel to get another opinion.'
Popular Republican radio show host, Rush Limbaugh, brings some political concerns into focus with marked humor, “If Thomas Jefferson thought taxation without representation was bad, he should see how it is with representation.” Whether one accepts him or not, the reality is that Limbaugh is a popular fixture on the radio waves and has turned up the heat on alreadycombustible subjects, “Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?” Limbaugh does not balance himself on any political-correctness gymnastic high bar. Instead, he faces it straight-on, the devil can take tomorrow: “The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies.” And his definition of a bigot: “Bigot: A person who wins an argument with a liberal.” Despite all this walking over hot coals, Rush Limbaugh does not spare himself from blowing “hot air” over the airwaves, “Sorry to interrupt myself, but it’s the only way I stop talking.” When asked about his incendiary viewpoints, Rush Limbaugh serves up an answer that is, logically, hard to dispute: “It’s impossible to go through life not offending people. All you have to do is basically have an opinion on anything, and you’re gonna offend people.”
The late comedian Robin Williams poked fun at President George W. Bush and his Vice President, Dick Cheney, implying that Cheney, not Bush, was really running the country. Comedian Robin Williams dropped his political bomb: “You’ll notice that Bush never speaks when Cheney is drinking water.” Fellow comedian, George Carlin, gave politics some of the most memorable lines, “In America, anyone can become president. That’s the problem.” And Carlin’s admonishment

So God called another angel and sent her to earth for a time.
When the angel returned, she went to God and said, 'Yes, it's true. The earth is in decline; 95% of retirees are misbehaving, but 5% are being good...' God was not pleased.
So He decided to e-mail the 5% who were good, because he wanted to encourage them, and give them a little something to help them keep going. Do you know what the e-mail said?
Okay, I was just wondering, because I didn't get one either. End of Life Planning
A father told his three sons when he sent them to the university: "I feel it's my duty to provide you with the best possible education, and you do not owe me anything for that. However, I want you to appreciate it. As a token, please each put $1,000 into my coffin when I die." And so it happened. His sons became a doctor, a lawyer and a financial planner, each very successful financially. When their father’s time had come and they saw their father in the coffin, they remembered his wish. First, it was the doctor who put 10$100 bills onto the chest of the

over political parties remains a classic, “Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.” And sometimes politicians need no help from humorists. One politician stated, “My opponent needs a good kick up the backside from a jackass, and damn it I’m the one to do it!”
Occasionally, political criticism can create a widely-publicized backlash. It happened with newspaper columnist and political commentator, Molly Ivins (1944 – 2007). Writing for The Dallas Times Herald, columnist Ivins criticized James M. Collins (U.S. Representative, RDallas), by stating, “If his IQ slips any lower we’ll have to water him twice a day.” Collins was gravely insulted and his supporters flooded The Dallas Times Herald with complaints. The newspaper turned the controversy into a clever publicity campaign with billboards asking “Molly Ivins Can’t Say That, Can She?” Columnist Molly Ivins came out the better.
Though they were always an unwelcomed element in politics, hecklers have elicited some of the funniest political moments on record. When four-time New York Governor, Al Smith, ran for the U.S. presidency in 1928 he ran into a heckler who yelled out, “Go ahead, Al. Tell ‘em all you know! It won’t take you long!” Al Smith shot back, “Why don’t I tell ‘em what we both know?! It won’t take any longer!” It was a classic come-back from Al Smith. However, others did not fare so well, as with aspiring U.S. presidential candidate, Theodore Roosevelt. A heckler shouted at Roosevelt, “I’m a Democrat!” Roosevelt shouted back, “May I ask the gentleman why he is a Democrat?!” The heckler obliged, “My grandfather was a Democrat! My father was a Democrat, and I’m a Democrat!” Roosevelt then yelled, “My friend, suppose your father was a jackass, what would you be?!” The heckler responded instantly, “A Republican!” Occasionally, hecklers are not needed to hamper a political figure making a speech; the politician may shoot himself in the foot, not once, not twice, but too many times. Such was the case with Vice President, Dan Quayle, who served

under President George H. W. Bush. The American public seemed to relish the verbal mistakes Dan Quayle would make, causing great amusement across America. In March of 1990, at a Phoenix Republican Forum, Quayle pronounced, “If we do not succeed, then we run the risk of failure.” Speaking for the United Negro College Fund, whose slogan was “A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste,” Dan Quayle gave new meaning to the slogan and made national evening news in the process: “What a terrible thing to have lost one’s mind. Or not to have a mind at all. How true that is.” Though these verbal misfirings were the height of embarrassment for the Bush administration, the general public found great amusement in such outings. Soon Dan Quayle calendars made their appearance with each month showcasing a Dan Quayle faux pas. On one occasion Vice President Dan Quayle made a live crowd chuckle to themselves and a national readership laugh out loud when he quipped, “I have made good judgements in the past. I have made good judgements in the future.” At one point Bush attempted to defuse such negative publicity only to find himself brought into the malaise when Quayle said, “This president is going to lead us out of this recovery.” Shortly after, Dan Quayle would proudly say, “We are ready for any unforeseen event that may or may not occur.” Though small segments of society wanted to halt the laughter behind Dan Quayle’s embarrassing statements, the American public was so amused that a Dan Quayle phenomena sparked across all states. Dan Quayle tshirts, watches, calendars, a Dan Quayle Joke, Song and Blooper Line was even created. And every standup comedian on television laughed their way to the bank using the vice president’s words of ‘wisdom.’ Even America’s most beloved talk show host, Johnny Carson, devoted his final monologues thanking Dan Quayle for giving him something so memorable to end his career on. One pearl of wisdom was when Dan Quayle was quoted as saying, “I love California, I practically grew up in Phoenix.” Quayle became the go-to-source for late night television hosts during his era and for national newspapers that needed an amusing storyline to factually report on. Quayle’s attempts to right a sinking ship were best left unsaid, “I deserve respect for the things I did not do.” Regardless, he refused to stop or ease up on his speak-

Senator Mark Wyland to Speak at ERWF Meeting – The Escondido Republican Women, Federated (ERWF) has invited former Senator Mark Wyland as their guest speaker for their Wednesday, April 27th luncheon. A native of Escondido, Sen. Wyland was a Fulbright Scholar and graduated from Pomona College and Columbia University. He began his government service on the Escondido Union School District Board, was later elected to the 74th State Assembly District, then elected to the 38th State Senate District in 2006 and 2010. He is currently a candidate for the State Board of Education. Also speaking will be Taylor Menconi, a senior at Escondido Charter High School, who will read her award-winning essay entitled “What the U.S. Constitution Means to Me.” She is ERWF’s 2016 Charlotte Mousel Scholarship winner and will be presented a certificate and monetary award. The meeting, open to the public, begins promptly at 11:30am at Cocina del Charro, 890 W. Valley Parkway, Escondido,
ing engagements, “The global importance of the Middle East is that it keeps the Far East and the Near East from encroaching on each other.” Once when a radio show host was told by an angry caller to stop laughing at Dan Quayle, the host said, “Don’t shoot the messenger, I just report the facts – do you want all Americans to put on ear plugs?!” The phone lines lit up all in full agreement of free speech and dictatorshipfree radio. They demanded more quotes from Dan Quayle! Quayle wouldn’t disappoint, “It isn’t the pollution that’s harming the environment. It’s the impurities in our air and water that are doing it!” Bush’s attempts to keep Quayle’s speeches short for fear of Quayle adding more faux pas into the mix, did not work. Instead, a determined Dan Quayle seemed to speak endlessly in search of a point, as one newspaper columnist put it. Soon after, Dan Quayle rambled at great length despite the admonitions to keep his speeches short: “I feel that this (1981) is my first year, that next year is an election year, that the third year is the mid-point and that the fourth year is the last chance I’ll have to make a record since the last two years, I’ll be a candidate again. Everything I do in those last two years will be posturing for the election. But right now I don’t have to do that.” His attempts to make himself respectable only heightened the confusion when he said, “I was known as the chief grave robber of my state.” The Republican Party wished for Dan Quayle not to defend them, yet he valiantly tried, “Republicans understand the importance of bondage between a mother and a child.” In all of life, an indispensable element is our ability to laugh. To not take life too seriously, for if we ever do, it will prove our ultimate undoing, both in the spirit and in the flesh. Once we relinquish our precious capacity to laugh, at ourselves and the world around us, then we are doomed and we open the door of life wide open to the dreaded embrace of a dismal death. Laughter is our resilience, our last bastion, our final vanguard against the elements which wish to bring us to our collective knees, servile and neck extended for the executioner’s axe. In this 2016 election year, despite all our varied opinions, our opposing agendas, and our God-given privilege to vote freely – perhaps we can tolerate one another as Americans; perhaps even love one another, regardless of creed, reli-

gion, or political belief. Maybe even share a laugh together. In an international poll, foreigners were asked about us Americans. One of the top questions from countries of the world was, “Why do Americans laugh so loud? And why do Americans talk so loud?” The way we talk and the way we laugh often sets us apart from the rest of humanity. In the “Eastex Advocate” (November 4, 2013), writer Glen Dodson comments on Americans laughing, “It’s an American way of life. I interviewed a man many years ago who had been a POW in World War II in Germany. He said that American humor helped to lift their spirits during their ordeal. American humor though, was confusing to the enemy.” In short, it’s what makes us Americans. It’s what makes our country unique. We need to embrace our traditions, our legacy of humor, our ability to laugh the way we do. If we laugh loudly, so be it. We need the resolve to be proud of who we are, our manners, our customs, our speech pattern, and idiosyncrasies. And when embracing all these precious things which make our American heritage, we also need to embrace ourselves and each other, for we are as Abraham Lincoln once said, the last best hope of the world: “We shall nobly save, or meanly lose, the last best hope of Earth.” If we should ever lose our precious sense of humor then we risk the destruction of resiliency – our will-power to persevere through life’s troubled waters. Lincoln said it best, “If destruction be our lot, we ourselves must be the authors and finishers. We must live through all times, or die of suicide.” No one celebrated humor more than Abraham Lincoln. When a political adversary accused him of being ‘twofaced,’ Lincoln replied “If I had two faces, would I be wearing this one?” Lincoln knew better than most that we Americans must never lose our kinship to laughter. It is the lantern that often leads us out of darkness and despair. During his darkest hour, Lincoln knew that laughter was his last resort. He once confessed, “With the fearful strain that is on me night and day, if I did not laugh I should die.” In this turbulent 2016 race to the White House, perhaps as a nation we need to

The Paper • Page 4 • April 21, 2016 Carlsbad’s Violent Crime Rate Dropped in 2015
On April 14, 2016, SANDAG released the “Thirty-Six Years of Crime in the San Diego Region: 1980-2015” report. As SANDAG notes and as a matter of perspective when reviewing crime rates, it is important to analyze rates over time to gain a clearer picture. Further, in 2014 the County of San Diego experienced 35 year crime rate lows. City of Carlsbad Summary
“The City of Carlsbad’s crime rate generally runs parallel to what is occurring countywide and even nationwide, just at a lower level,” said Police Department Crime Analyst Cindy Anderson. FBI Index crime rate per 1,000 population:
Like the greater majority of the county, Carlsbad’s FBI Index crime rate increased 18 percent in 2015 when compared to 2014 (17.61 to 20.84). Countywide increase ranged from 1 percent to 45 percent. The FBI index includes homicide, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft. The Carlsbad increase was due in part to an increase in reported rape cases and in part to an increase in reported property crime. Violent crime rate per 1,000 population:
Carlsbad’s violent crime rate decreased 16 percent in 2015 when compared to 2014 (1.86 to 1.55). The decrease included homicide (1 to 0), robbery (44 to 38) and aggravated assault (145 to 101).
Rape showed an increase in reported crimes (14 to 33). Rape is a violent crime but not necessary random act.
Carlsbad’s violent crime clearance rate of 70 percent in 2015 is in the top of the county. Property crime rate per 1,000 population:
Carlsbad’s property crime rate increased 22 percent in 2015 when compared to 2014 (15.75 to 19.29). It is important to note that 2014 reflected a statistically significant 35year crime rate low in Carlsbad.
The 2015 property crime rate of 19.29 is comparable to the 2013 rate of 19.26 and the 2012 rate of 19.59.
2015 reflects a rate in line with the past seven years which represents a decline in property crime. SANDAG reports, “The 2015 (countywide) property crime rate was 6 percent higher than 2014 but was still the second lowest rate in the past 36 years.”

The largest category in petty theft is thefts from vehicles. The majority of the time in Carlsbad a thief enters an unlocked vehicle or secondly, smashes the vehicle window to gain entry and steal unattended property.
The Police Department implemented numerous programs in 2015 to combat increases in vehicle crime. These programs included: Analysis directed patrol teams, bait cars, surveillance cameras, vehicle security checks, citywide signage and community education to reduce the opportunities for crime by securing vehicles and removing unattended property. “Many variables factor into why a crime rate goes up and down,” said Police Chief Neil Gallucci. “The hard working men and women of the Police Department are committed each day to addressing current crime trends and finding innovative ways to combat crime.”
Gallucci went on to say effective policing takes teamwork and the community of Carlsbad is an important part of the crime-fighting team. Gallucci encourages community members to be the eyes and ears of their community, watch out for each other, secure property and immediately call the Police Department when they see suspicious activity or crime.

In the course of our travels we invariably wind up in a restaurant, often for breakfast, sometimes for lunch, occasionally for dinner. Over the 16 years we’ve owned The Paper we’ve found a large number of superb restaurants, a goodly number of excellent restaurants, and, rarely, a mediocre place. We don’t write about the mediocre or bad restaurants. We don’t see our purpose in life as beating up on a restaurant. Instead, we try to focus on the positive and promote those we feel are deserving of your patronage.
Invariably,we come to the conclusion that Escondido restaurants have generally set the bar pretty high . . . in terms of prompt service, good food and fair prices. When we dine at a mediocre place we’ll often say to our dining pal, “this would never happen at Charlies, Pegah’s, Dominic’s, The Jalapeno Grill, J&M’s ... etc.” You do not have long waits at any of the above, nor several other excellent eateries. The service is prompt, efficient, and friendly.
The food is good . . . and if it isn’t, they expect you to send it back so they can prepare it to your liking. I seldom send foods back at any of the above places. Had breakfast at Charlie’s last Thursday and, as usual, had a chance to chat with Charlie (Mitich, the owner) at some length. He pointed out that the restaurant business is good, but not great. Many challenges. Seldom do you see a new start-up. There are heavy start-up costs and with the new minimum wage of $15 per hour plus the increased cost of food . . . particularly meats, it’s tough for a new food business to make it. You have to attract patrons . . . you have to establish your menu, your ‘atmosphere,’ (is it a family restaurant? Italian, Chinese, Vietnamese?) your prices, train your staff, make solid business decisions every day. It takes a long time to recover your initial investment and to start making a regular profit. This is true for established restaurateurs . . . even more difficult for ‘newbies’ who don’t know the ins and outs, the techniques, the availability of special items and their pricing . . the task can be overwhelming.
All the more reason we can be thankful for so many great eating establishments in Escondido, San Marcos specifically, and North County generally. ••••• Speaking of food . . . and I just was . . . I had the munchies Sunday afternoon so decided to experiment. The result? Norwegian Pasghetti

Mr. Davis, I only wish to say we just absolutely love Friedrich Gomez' articles as I'm sure zillions of others do also! We live in Newark, New Jersey but visit San Diego often (a beautiful place!). And so we pick up The Paper and read it while we're here now. We just read his article on "The Rush for WWII German Scientists" -- truly brilliant!
Believe it or not, The Paper is widely read online on the Eastern seaboard at www.thecommunitypaper.com. We read in your publication where another admirer of Friedrich Gomez sent copies of his Disneyland articles to several different people in different states! Wow! You have a wonderful, wonderful publication, Mr. Davis. We live in New Jersey

Superman and His KickBike
Missouri at their engineering school in Rolla, Mo., I guess maybe I did learn a bit and was quite pleased with my Graduation with a B.S degree.
I have been a paper boy more than a few times in my life . . . as a young lad and well into my middle-earlies. But those experiences can’t hold a candle to the experiences of Hal Brehe, who lives in the Palomar West Mobile Home Park in San Marcos.
hope you feel the same about me.
Particularly when you recognize that Hal Brehe is 90 years old!
I decided long ago that when doing something that I might term "dangerous" that I would be clothed in clothes that attracts the eyes of others. To accomplish this, I invested in one of those semi-transparent, half reflective, safety vests that are mostly red net, with reflective materials sewn onto the vest. In addition, when riding my 26' "Kickbike" with a 14" rear wheel. Superman Hal Brehe & KickBike (A Kickbike is an Adult Scooter Don't know, maybe I'm a bit weird, but I because of its wheel size).

That was after spending 2 years and 2 days The Scooter itself is yellow, and I wear a in the US Navy, as a 2nd class Aviation riding helmet, which I painted a flourescent Electronics Technicians Mate and after the red, and I have a flashing red light, on the war went back to school at University of back side of my Safety Helmet!.

Often, he finishes his route in one day! An ambitious undertaking! At the end of each week’s delivery run I get something that is neither required not expected. A memo from Hal in the form of an email.
A sampling of his messages follow and shows the kind of man he is and the attitude he carries: I love what I'm doing for you -- wonderful exercise. I really would like you to allow me to live out my life with you. I feel quite competent to do a good job with you, and I’m after the exercise. I just might as well be making a buck or two-- at the same time. I'm really happy doing your work. Think of it: here is this 90 year old old fart, working his butt off, in order to just to do something useful for somebody. I hope that you can tell that I'm feeling pretty darn good about my service to you. I only

By then, then, my Partner (caregiver for this old man) has driven her car, with the next 300 to a friend of hers home in Palomar East, where she unloads the next 300 papers from my home in Palomar West. That home becomes my "filling station" for Palomar East. So long as she gets them there before noon, I don't lose any time, for I tend to complete Palomar West by 1 pm.
Since I gave up auto driving a couple of years ago, I just Kickbike between the two Parks, and each one seperately gets my full attention! ••••• Though 90, Hal still has an eye for the ladies. And they seem to find him equally attractive. Indeed, when Evelyn and I visited him to take some photos he gave Evelyn a big hug. Later, she said, “he gives a great hug.

As far as I'm concerned "no one is perfect," at least thus far in human history, so I'm sure Mr. Gomez is allowed to make some mistakes in life as well. Or perhaps not -- call off that firing squad (we know you're just joking). However, there is a tiny minority of people who never make mistakes and explode at those who do. There is a very funny line that says, "The people who think they are perfect really upsets those of us who really are!"

Famous San Diegans ...
Hi, I just finished reading the article that Friederich Gomez did on famous San Diegans. I would first like to start off by saying that it was a great article.
I didn't know that both Miyam Bialik and Cameron Diaz are both originally from here in SD county. I would also like to suggest a rap artist, that was left out, by the name of Lil Rob. He is originally from Solana Beach. In 2005, he reached 36 on the Billboard charts with his song Summer Nights. Also, in 2006, he reached 85 with Bring Out The Freak In You. /s/Gustavo Rosales San Diego County, CA.
Dear Editor Lyle E. Davis:
My dad is a vet (U.S. Marine Corps) and he says "Once a Marine, always a Marine." Anyway, he loves The Paper and he said you served in Vietnam, but I think my dad is mistaken. I told my dad that you use to run some San Diego radio station but he thinks I might be mistaken. So, I showed him the story on "The Beatles, Elvis, and San Diego" (3/31/16) that you ran in The Paper. In there I showed my dad where you said you were manager of KOWN radio station and that you did not serve in Vietnam. My dad already saw the article but still thinks you served in Nam (as he calls it). Can you help us sort out the confusion?
Oh yeah, my dad and his military friends are all big, big (I mean humongous) fans of writer Friederich Gomez! I love his writing too but my dad wants to meet Friederich Gomez and buy him a drink and so does my dad's marine friends. Is there any way you can forward this email to him? My dad loves all his writings, not just the military ones. I'd like to meet him myself as I have all his articles at home and so does my dad. That would really make my dad happy if he could meet Friederich Gomez. It would mean a lot to my dad if you could pass this request to Friederich Gomez. Thanks a lot.

Students in an advanced Biology class were taking their mid-term exam. The last question was, 'Name seven advantages of Mother's Milk.’ The question was worth 70 points or none at all.

Creating New Sources of Water
Since agriculture in our region depends largely on imported water, I have long supported initiatives to increase local supplies, including the use of recycled water. As many of you know, while a member of the Escondido City Council, I was an early supporter of a plan to use treated wastewater to irrigate citrus and avocado groves on the city’s outskirts. This year I introduced Assembly Bill 2438 to help speed construction of recycled water pipelines along existing rights-of-way by streamlining costly, time consuming regulations that have delayed or prevented these projects statewide. AB 2438, which passed the Natural Resources Committee on April 11, is coauthored by Assemblyman Adrin Nazarian (D –Sherman Oaks). Water recycling has the greatest potential to provide muchneeded new water resources for communities throughout California. The public and pri-

vate sector, including agriculture, would benefit greatly from the availability of more reclaimed water. As an added benefit, AB 2438 will help California to meet its recycled water goal of an additional one million acre-feet by 2020.
AB 2438 will alleviate bureaucratic roadblocks many communities face when attempting to build recycled water pipelines alongside existing pipelines, usually located in paved roadways or other public rights-ofway. The bill will allow the Office of Planning and Research and the local county clerk to prepare a negative declaration, mitigated declaration or EIR as needed, in many cases eliminating or streamlining stringent environmental regulations for projects in urbanized areas. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution to California’s water-supply problems, development of local water resources should be encouraged. Going forward, passage of AB 2438 will make reclaimed water a major component in California’s longterm water solution.

Editor’s Note: To clarify:
I did serve in Vietnam, but not in the military. I was there in 1967 and 1968 as a civilian war correspondent representing two newspaper chains, The North Shore Group and the Hollister Press, as well as WIL Radio, St. Louis and WEEF Radio (Highland Park/Chicago). I had left the USArmy as a Specialist 4th Class, Entertainment Director, Brooke Army Hospital, Fort Sam Houston, Texas. When I served as a correspondent they gave me an assimilated grade/rank of Lt. Colonel.
(It is a much better life being a Lt. Col. than a lowly Spec 4 . . . but I found myself eating in the Enlisted Men's mess much more often than in Officer Country. Way more stories and, generally, more interesting individuals. A few exceptions. Some officers were out of this world! But the grunts were usually where the stories were.)
I did manage KOWN Radio from 1970 to 1977, was with KFMB until 1988 back in the talent arena, serving as their Traffic Reporter. We have had a great many people asking to meet Friedrich Gomez. Fact is, he's painfully shy. I even asked him to be a guest speaker at my Hidden Valley Kiwanis Club of Escondido. Hasn't accepted yet . . . but he hasn't said a firm no, either. I am forwarding this email and my response to Friedrich. Maybe it will help him to overcome his shyness.
Lots of folks, like you, would love to meet him and shake his paw. Evelyn and I know him well and absolutely love the man. He’s very special to both of us . . . and, obviously, to our readers. The A-Bomb and the Nazis
I look forward to perusing your enjoyable paper every week! I agree the Germans were far ahead on rocketry, jet aircraft, and certain other conventional weapons. But it is totally false that “...Germany was on the verge of developing the first atomic bomb”!
Yes, nuclear fission was first attained in a German laboratory, but the first operating nuclear reactor was built in Chicago. By war’s end, the German nuclear weapons effort was still in kindergarten. It never got anything close to the top priority it would have needed. Whereas in the USA, the program had the very highest priority for materials, funding and manpower. The massive American effort started in earnest 2 ½ years before the first weapon could be tested successfully – Germany would have needed at least that long.
The U.S effort was huge! Small cities [Oak Ridge, Tenn., and Richland, Wash.] were constructed from scratch to house construction workers, scientists and plant operators. At Oak Ridge, three giant totally different facilities were designed, constructed and operated, pursing three very different methods to obtain highly pure U-235 in necessary quantities.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
The Attorney Who Challenged God
was a law student at the University of Chicago. Loeb was the youngest graduate ever from the University of Michigan. When asked why, Leopold told police: "The thing that prompted Dick to want to do this thing and prompted me to want to do this thing was a sort of pure love of excitement ... the imaginary love of thrills, doing something different ... the satisfaction and the ego of putting something over." It was labeled the case the "Trial of the Century" and Americans around the country wondered what could drive the two young men, blessed with everything their society could offer, to commit such a depraved act. The state's attorney told the press he had a "hanging case" for sure. Darrow stunned the prosecution when he had the killers plead guilty in order to avoid a vengeance-minded jury, placing the case before the judge. The trial turned into a long sentencing hearing in which Darrow contended, with the help of expert testimony, that Leopold and Loeb were mentally ill. Darrow's closing argument lasted 12 hours. He repeatedly stressed the under-ages of the "boy,” noting that "never had there been a case in Chicago where on a plea of guilty a boy under 21, which at that time was the marker for adulthood, had been sentenced to death."
He was America’s leading defense attorney during the first half of the 20th century, however, Clarence Darrow will long be remembered for challenging the theory of evolution.
Clarence Seward Darrow was born April 18, 1857, in Kinsman, Ohio. He was a leading member of the American Civil Liberties Union, but he was best known for two headlinegrabbing criminal cases. Called a "sophisticated country lawyer,” he remains notable for his wit, which marked him as one of the most famous American lawyers and civil libertarians until this day.
In 1894, Darrow represented noted labor leader Eugene V. Debs, of the American Railway Union, who was prosecuted by the federal government for leading the Pullman Strike of 1894. He saved Debs in one trial but could not keep the union leader from being jailed in another.
Throughout his career, Darrow devoted himself to opposing the death penalty, which he felt to be in conflict with humanitarian progress. In more than 100 cases, Darrow only lost one murder case in Chicago. He became renowned for moving juries and even judges to tears with his eloquence. Darrow had a keen intellect often hidden by his rumpled, unassuming appearance. When his name is mentioned, he’s remembered for two sensational criminal defenses. The first came in 1924, when Darrow took on the case of Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, the teenage sons of two wealthy Chicago families. They were accused of kidnapping and killing Bobby Franks, a 14-year-old boy. Leopold was 18; Loeb, 17. Leopold
Darrow succeeded in softening Judge Caverly, who sentenced the killers to life plus 99 years.
The second sensational trial took place in 1925, when Darrow defended school teacher John T. Scopes in the State of Tennessee v. Scopes trial, better known as the "Scopes Monkey Trial." The title popularized by famed Baltimore journalist H.L. Mencken. Tennessee law forbade the teaching of the Theory of Evolution at any state-funded school, including universities. During the trial, Darrow requested that three time presidential candidate, William Jennings Bryan, a self-proclaimed expert on the Bible, be called as a witness. Bryan agreed, and Darrow made the old man look foolish, turning public opinion against the prosecution. Nonetheless, Scopes was found guilty and ordered to pay a $100 fine, later overturned by the state’s Supreme Court.
The Scopes case re-emerged during the 1950s as a fictionalized film, “Inherit the Wind,” starring Spencer Tracey as a defense attorney thinlydisguised as Darrow.
The life of Darrow was filled with so many other famous cases that space doesn’t allow for listing. Darrow died March 13, 1938, arguably the most famous, or infamous depending upon your viewpoint, attorney of the first half of the 20th century.

Two Grant Opportunities Available at San Diego Foundation – The 2016 Blasker Environment Grants Program supports unique and innovative research development and applications that advance local solutions to one of our region’s most pressing challenges, climate change. Emphasis is placed on supporting students and early-career scientists. Grants will support projects that have the potential to improve the quality of life in the San Diego region and to support and encourage San Diegans to reach their full potential. There is $100,000 available in funding and the deadline for the application is Friday, May 6, 2016. For the spring 2016 Opening the Outdoors Grants program, The San Diego Foundation aims to advance community-driven efforts to develop and/or improve access to an interconnected network of natural areas, gathering places, and trails across the county so that the outdoors is easily accessible from any San Diegan’s doorstep. In a Foundation-facilitated survey, Our Greater San Diego Vision, 30,000 San Diegans from all areas of the region stated that a healthy, beautiful and accessible environment was a high priority. However, our 2010 Parks for Everyone report found that while 45% of San Diego County’s total land
area is green space, many low-income, ethnically diverse communities have limited access to parks and open spaces. There was also a strong correlation between communities with high rates of childhood obesity and low park access. Contact the San Diego Foundation for the deadline to apply.

A history of steep rent increases to a “captive” customer base led residents to place a rent control measure on the ballot in 1988. It passed and since then the City Council has served as the Rent Review Board for mobile home parks in Escondido.

Getting through Sadder-day
Recently, we celebrated Holy Week. Looking back, that week is a dichotomy. It rendered the greatest hope of all … the opportunity to begin again through the resurrection of Jesus Christ …. against the backdrop of the pain and sorrow of humanity and the state of our world. All you have to do is to look around … watch the news or scan the headlines, listen to the radio or browse through Facebook … it’s a tough, cruel and sometimes senseless world out there.
But then Easter came … and it reminded me that there is HOPE. It’s the only hope for this world.
In between Good Friday and Easter came Saturday. Some call it “Sadder-day.” We were caught between the pain of Good Friday (and the human hardheartedness that led to it) and Sunday … where hope reigns. It’s the day that “love and sorrow met.” So if you, like me, get a bit weary on the journey … take heart. First Friday, then Saturday, but Sunday came. Because of resurrection power and third day hope, every day is Easter for each of us who can see it. Easter … 365 days a year!
One day, we’ll leave this world.
In the meantime, read “the book.” At the end of it all … we share in tremendous victory; we realize earth was but a test and heaven the reward.
You will make it through your sadder-day. When your life is transformed, hope is real; light emerges out of darkness.

Armorlite Drive overhaul is underway
A $3.3 million overhaul of Armorlite D r i v e — supported primarily by a SANDAG Smart Growth grant and developer impact fees—is underway and scheduled for completion this fall. The project will transform about a third of a mile of the road, next to the Palomar Station Apartment Community and parallel to Mission Road and the Sprinter track adjacent to Palomar College campus, into a “complete street” featuring bike and pedestrian friendly improvements that support alternative modes of transportation.
The overhaul will add a two-way cycle lane, sidewalks, two mid-block crosswalks with rectangular rapid flashing beacons, and underground storm water treatment facilities. The Armorlite improvements will also bring angled and parallel parking, pedestrian lighting, bicycle racks, and benches to the area. Detours for motorists and pedestrians will be in place during the construction period. Access to all residences and businesses will be maintained through marked detours and other traffic control measures. For the latest traffic updates, visit www.san-marcos.net/roadwork.

Sharing the Land with Wild Animals
Coyotes are f o u n d throughout most of California and sightings in our city remind us that we still share the land with California’s wild animals. These wild animals primarily hunt rodents and rabbits for food, keeping the rodent populations under control. However, coyotes will take advantage of whatever is available, including garbage, pet food, and domestic animals. They are, by nature, fearful of humans; but when given access to human food and garbage, they may lose their natural fear. Coyotes are more active in the spring when feeding and protecting their young.
The California Department of Fish & Wildlife recommends making loud noises if followed by a coyote, or if this fails, try throwing rocks in the animal’s direction. Additional tips including keeping garbage in tightly closed containers that cannot be tipped over, removing sources of water, bringing pets in at night, and removing outside pet food.
Wildlife authorities ask those who notice a wild animal (mountain lion or other) in the area to call the Sheriff's Department at 858.565.5200 (in an emergency, call 911), as well as California Fish and Wildlife at 858.467.4201.

New PC applications were popping up everywhere and hardware technology was struggling to keep up. “A new PC is obsolete by the time you get it home” was a common consumer complaint. The average PC became obsolete within two years, so if you maxed out the speed, memory and storage on your new PC you might squeeze out an extra year or two of useful life. Those days are long gone and speed and storage are often of minor concern for 90% of home and business users today. The Internet has changed everything.
Superman Cont. from Page 11 @ 90-- still yet).
Age changes things, and I am changed, but that does not prevent me from desiring a partner whom I can demonstrate love and affection. I believe that it only makes sense for me to look toward the oldest of a woman, who, like I, am aged, but who has lost only looks and other minor physical blemishes and or growths. I'm after the inner woman, one who can still laugh, smile and care. If Love is there, happiness is automatic -- or it was not love to start with.
Unfortunately I do not have another life to live but still being healthy at 90 I am not sedentary -- that's the primary reason for my delivering that greatpaper -- "The Paper." I meet people, talk to a new few each week.and feel physically good about what I do. And so there you have it . . . a look at our Superman . . . a gent who has a pretty solid outlook on life and love.
When we first met Hal I was surprised at how wiry and strong he appeared. Smooth skin . . strong handshake . . . great smile. You could have told me he was 50 and I would have believed you. We rather look forward to his emails each day, following completion of his deliveries.
We shall also be interested in how many not-so-young-anymore ladies respond to his plea for companionship. He’s a rather interesting chap.
Almost any computer built since 2007 can handle the fastest Internet speed with capacity to spare and also run the common off-line programs quite handily. Many new PC sold today are actually slower and have less storage capacity than the average PC in 2010. Computer hardware is no longer the driving force behind obsolescence, in recent years Microsoft has been the major creator of “planned obsolescence.”
Most home users have a hard time thinking of anything they do on their PCs that isn’t Internet related. Even common off-line tasks like Quicken, spread sheets, greeting cards, newsletters, learning programs, photo editing, low end games and word processing are increasingly being accomplished using “cloud” based applications on the WWW.
by phone. The “mainframe” held the programs, made the computations, stored the files and distributed the results to the “dumb terminals.” All the “intelligence” resided in the “mainframe CPU.” With a keyboard and display, a “dumb terminal” was a device that allowed the human to interact with the CPU (mainframe). Smart phones and tablets are “dumb terminals” they are a basic input/output device with a display. The Internet is the “mainframe.” It has all the intelligence, does all the work, stores all the programs and files and distributes data to your “dumb as a stump” iPhone or Android.
When you are on the Internet, your PC is also a “dumb terminal.” It is little more than an I/O device with a display. So why does the “average” user need a PC? Well PCs have big screens, comfortable I/O devices and are harder to break or lose than mobile devices. Many users also like the freedom of being able to run their programs and store their files off-line and many don’t like to be subject to the sometimes unreliable Internet.
Next week we will discuss what specific hardware is appropriate for the majority of home and business users and what to watch out for when you buy a new notebook or desktop PC.
The bottom line is that most of us could do all the things we do off line just as easily with on-line applications. As long as we have a keyboard, mouse, monitor and an Internet connection we don’t even need a PC, all we need is a “dumb terminal.” A “dumb terminal” is simply an I/O (input/output) device that communicates with a CPU. Back in the 1960 and 70s most large businesses had a CPU (mainframe computer) in a central, controlled environment. It was wired to “dumb terminals” locally and remote terminals anywhere
Man About Town Cont. from Page 4
Trust me. I'm the media.
The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consul Ifft, at Bergen, Norway. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared. Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts, which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable. I’m sorry, I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922 as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post …

these folks first; and then I'm sure we'll be able to work something out."
The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?" Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address microphone. "May I have your attention, please?" she began, her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal. "We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him with his identity, please come to Gate 14." With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the United Airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said, "Screw You!"
Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry sir, you'll have to get in line for that, too." ••••• When I checked into my hotel on a recent trip, I said to the lady at the registration desk, "I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."
To which she replied, "No, it's regular porn, you sick bastard.” ••••• A buddy of mine just told me he's getting it on with his girlfriend and her twin. I asked, "How can you tell them apart?" He said, "Her brother's got a moustache." •••••

crimes and keeping us employed." It's just plain selfish. ••••• Vincent Van Gogh’s Family Tree . . .

facilities were designed and built simultaneously, plus a large first-of-a-kind remotely-operated plant to chemically separate plutonium from all other elements. At a newly-constructed site at Los Alamos, a large number of scientists and engineers designed, built and tested a number of new and unique weapon devices. The same major effort, time and priority would have been required in Germany -- and it was simply not possible. We had much larger population and material resources to draw upon. And our manufacturing, transportation and communications infrastructures were not being bombed intensely day and night!
The German atomic bomb “program” was never a realistic threat. /s/Ralph “Pete” Peters Retired California-licensed nuclear engineer

Mystery Guest Identified!
Didn’t take long. It’s hard to get a Mystery Guest past Dolly McQuiston. She correctly identified last week’s mystery guest as Don Anderson, retired City of Escondido administrator and, for many years, Director of their Parks & Recreation Department.
We figured Don would be guessed fairly quickly. Seems everyone knows him. I”ve known him since he was a recreational aide for the city (about a hundred years ago). Congrats to Dolly McQuiston (again.)
Now, let’s see who can guess the new mystery guest!
