It is certainly no secret that San Diego County has been called among the most beautiful counties in all the United States, and for plenty good reason. Our climate is world-renowned, and so is our La Jolla Beach and coastline. According to Trip Advisor, its annual Travelers’ Choice Awards placed La Jolla Shores as the 8th-best beach in U.S in a survey released in February of 2016. The Travelers’ Choice Awards present a list that is hard to crack: the awards honored 343 beaches that are reviewed over a 12-month period based on expert as well as traveler reviews and comments. But, if that is not impressive enough, La Jolla Shores, known as “The Jewel of San Diego County,” scored even higher with the Fox 5 Digital Team, which voted La Jolla Cove and La Jolla Shores as the 6th best beach in America! “Zowie!” as my grandpa, Marshall, might say, “that’s pretty damned impressive!” La Jolla was the only California beach in the top 10. All of the others listed were in Florida and Hawaii.
But climate and a nirvana coastline composed of La Jolla, Del Mar and Torrey Pines, are not the only incentives – the girls here are among the most beautiful on the planet. There is an amusing true story involving San Diego County girls and California girls in general that tie in with getting popular radio show host, Rush Limbaugh, in hot water. On one occasion, thinking his microphone was turned off, Limbaugh remarked to his radio show cohorts in the studio that, “The farther west you go, the prettier the girls become!” Since Rush Limbaugh’s toprated show is national, he received an earful from many of his staunch nonCalifornia fan base! To his credit, Limbaugh apologized. But aside from all these beautiful beach bunnies, the breathtaking coastline and the aquatic paradise for kayaking, surfing, and snorkeling, the top horse-racing track in America is nestled, literally, just off the Del Mar beach! The legendary Del Mar Racetrack – founded by a glittering constellation of Hollywood stars such as Bing Crosby, Pat O’Brien, Gary Cooper, et al, is ranked number one in the nation for average daily attendance and cash-handled (a staggering $15-million is wagered each racing day!). Churchill Downs racetrack, in Kentucky, may get 170,000 spectators for the Kentucky Derby, but that is known as a “spike day” – after which the famous Derby racetrack plummets like Icarus with a paltry average attendance of around 9,000 per day, at best. But in additional to all this glow and wonder, there are plenty of great secrets and lesser-known facts about our beautiful San Diego County. Some of which may surprise or perhaps even shock you! QUIZ TIME. So here is a fun quiz to enjoy over your morning coffee, leisurely afternoon at the park, or in the com-

fort of your home, curled up on the sofa at the end of long day at work. Just relax, and have fun and, in the process, see just how much you know or, perhaps, do not know about our beautiful San Diego County. WHO WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO DRIVE ACROSS THE CORONADO BAY BRIDGE? A. McDonald’s Founder, Ray Kroc B. U.S. President, Lyndon Johnson C. Governor Ronald Reagan D. Charger’s Owner, Gene Klein The beautiful Coronado Bay bridge was first opened in 1969 connecting downtown San Diego with Coronado (known as Coronado Island). If you selected “C” above, you are absolutely correct! Not counting the working crew, official
architects, and various construction workers, et al, the first ‘official’ person to drive across the Coronado Bay Bridge was then-California Governor, Ronald Reagan. Now approaching the half-century mark the breathtaking bridge hosts over 75,000 automobiles which traverse the bridge on a daily basis. Technically speaking, Coronado Island is actually a “tied island” as opposed to being a true island which is completely surrounded by ocean water. A most interesting sidenote is that the bridge was initially planned on being painted red in color rather than the blue it is today! Principal architect, Robert Mosher, recalls fighting over the color selection for the bridge: “I said, you know, that’s the wrong thing to do, because if you put a red flag in front of a bull, then you get in trouble.” To Mosher, red was just a wrong, intrusive color scheme

for the elegantly crafted bridge structure. But, it wasn’t an easy persuasion at first. According to the chief architect, Mosher, they asked him, “Well, what do you want to paint it?” Mosher finally said, “I want to paint it blue. I want it to be between the sky and the bay.” Fortunately, Robert Mosher’s opinion won-out over red and the color blue blends in beautifully between the bay and sky. Blue was the perfect color. Over the years many urban legends have surrounded the bridge, such as the popular rumor that the middle of the bridge can float. This is completely false, yet the urban myth continues to this day.
SAN DIEGO COUNTY SONGS. There have many songs dedicated to San Diego County, perhaps the most famous

being Bing Crosby’s immortal, “Where the Turf Meets the Surf ” which has become synonymous with the legendary Del Mar Racetrack. In regards to songs mentioning San Diego County in part, herewith is a short sampling for your song quiz.
WHICH ARTIST OR GROUP LISTED BELOW DID (NOT) MENTION SAN DIEGO COUNTY IN ONE OF THEIR SONGS? A. The Beach Boys B. Bruce Springsteen C. Prince D. Eric Clapton
This one shocks most people so don’t feel badly if you missed it. But, if you got it right, take a bow! The only artist/group mentioned above that did not mention San Diego County in a song was “C,” Prince! What you are about to read is pretty impressive and overwhelming, so you may wish to be sitting down! The Beach Boys’ global hit song “Surfing USA” actually mentions five different parts of San Diego County! The song was such a monster hit in such exotic places as Hong Kong, Australia, and Japan, as well as all over Europe, and Canada, that rabid fans of the Beach Boys quickly looked up key San Diego areas on the map that were mentioned in their anthem song, “Surfing, USA.” San Diego County quickly became internationally known in the song lyrics. The hit song mentions: (1) Del Mar (2) Trestles at San Onofre State Park (3) “Swami’s” at Encinitas, (4) “San Onofre” San Onofre State Beach and (5) La Jolla. The Beach Boys are now regarded as the most iconic American Band and one of the most influential of all time! Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of

FOURSCORE and seven years ago, our fathers — and also, our mothers, I love mothers, too, because we need our mothers — brought forth on this continent a huge nation, a great, amazing country dedicated to the proposition that we can beat any weak losers who are bad, bad guys and totally overrated, believe me.
Now, it just so happens we are in a horrible, stupid war. They’re killing us. Just killing us. I would sue for peace, because when I sue I never settle, but if it had been up to me we never would have been here to begin with. I would have negotiated, and I wouldn’t have risked the country over a few slaves, who some of them might be good people — I had some nice African-American ladies working for me, and they were very dependable ladies — but it’s dumb to
Fame with 100-million records worldwide, a Hollywood star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, the Beach Boys have long favored San Diego County as their “personal wonderland,” having performed at the Padres baseball games at San Diego’s Jack Murphy Stadium almost every year since 1982 and continuing many years after.
Bruce Springsteen, aka “The Boss,” on our multiple-choice quiz list, sang “Balboa Park,” referencing the parkland in San Diego County. Winner of 20 Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes, and one Academy Award for his songwriting, Bruce Springsteen did not disappoint in his classic song, “Balboa Park,” released in his 1995 album and which dealt with the dark, seedy side of life, the homeless, the addicts, and the prostitution. “Balboa Park” helped solidify Springsteen’s as, “One of the most important and influential artists of all time.” He was even mentioned in Time Magazine’s list of most notable artists in 2009. The lyrics of “Balboa Park” brought longignored issues to the forefront leading to new reforms in San Diego County catapulting Bruce Springsteen as a social commentator and humanitarian. British megastar, Eric Clapton, also on our multiple-choice quiz sang the tribute, “The Road to Escondido,” released in his 2006 album which was a tribute to music legend, Billy Preston. The celebrated Eric Clapton once owned a mansion in Escondido in the 1980s and early ‘90s and, therefore, chose to honor the North San Diego County city. Eric Clapton was not content to just sing about his former Escondido roots, he wished to title his album cover with the same name, and he did. His “Road to Escondido” album won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues
risk the whole country for political correctness. It really is. The blacks love me, by the way. Frederick Douglass has been to my house.
So, here we are in front of you beautiful people of Gettysburg, and you are a very good-looking group of people. You know, I went to business school near here so I know Pennsylvania, believe me. I love the people of Gettysburg, and I can tell you are embarrassed about what our country has become. Do you see these Amish people buggying around with their very unattractive women in their sad outfits? Please, who would even date these women? Those bearded fanatics haven’t even bothered to learn English, and they’re taking your cow-milking jobs. It’s sad. It’s sick. It really is. And I know you are angry. I’m angry, too, because I love this country and I can make it great again. And here, they tell me, this is some great battlefield of the war, and by the way, I know everything about fields and this could be a terrific world-class 27-hole golf resort: about 7,300 yards from the gold championship tees and a beautiful hotel, and not some cemetery for socalled heroes. Heroes don’t get killed. Heroes win. Then they kill the families of the losers. It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing. Maybe a casino, too. So why dedicate? Why consecrate? Why hallow this ground? Only a very stupid person would consecrate it. What we need to do is rezone it. “Agriculture?” Are you kidding me?
Album in 2008. The city of Escondido has never had a higher honor and level of international recognition in an album title and song than this one! When accepting his Grammy Award for “The Road to Escondido,” a national audience heard of Escondido in San Diego County! HOW MANY FARMS ARE IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY?
Believe it or not, San Diego County has more farms than any other county in the entire United States! But, just how many farms within the county are we talking about? Take a guess. A. Over 1,000 B. Over 3,000 C. Over 5,000 D. Over 7,000
Well, any number listed above would be quite impressive for just one county area. But for San Diego to own the supreme bragging rights for having the most farms of any county in America, well, it need be a high number. As unbelievable as it may seem, San Diego County has over 7,000 farms! So if you selected “D” above, pat yourself on the back! You’re doing amazing!
HOW MANY U.S. PRESIDENTS HAVE BEEN GUESTS AT THE HOTEL DEL CORONADO? This may be both tricky and difficult, so be careful. Think, then close your eyes and take a guess. Remember, the whole idea is to relax and have fun! A. Five B. Eleven C. Sixteen D. Twenty
The Hotel Del Coronado was world-
This is a gold mine, and we’re sitting here on folding chairs looking at gravestones? It’s disgusting. Unfortunately, the suckers died in vain, which never would have happened if matters were in my hands. My attractive normal-size hands. Look at them … is there anything wrong with these hands? You bet there isn’t. And if someone next to you maybe disagrees — some sick, sad person — and I’m not saying what to do, but I’d certainly understand if some of my people who are looked down on by those people would seek out some of those people and decide that — who knows? — they should perish from the earth.

Back in the day, there was a major league pitcher named Mel Famey. Mel was an ace, and a strikeout artist. He had an ERA of less than 1, and he had won every game he started, including breezing through the playoffs.
World Series. There wasn’t a doubt in anyone’s mind that Mel would be the starting pitcher for his team in game 1, and sure enough he was. True to form they won with Mel shutting out the opponent. After losing games 2 and 3, the manager asked Mel if he could start on 3 days rest. “No problem Coach!” Mel started game 4 and won again.
famous as early as the 1920s and has had the honor of having royalty, movie stars, inventors, and U.S. Presidents stay there. If you selected “C” above, wow! I’m very impressed with you! To date the Hotel Del Coronado has had sixteen U.S. Presidents on their guest list: Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, William Howard Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and current President Barack Obama. Interesting fact is that when the hotel first opened in 1888, it was the largest resort hotel in the world! And it is the second largest wooden structure in the United States! An exceedingly high number of Hollywood and other notables from Charlie Chaplin, Babe Ruth, Charles Lindbergh, Jimmy Stewart, Bette Davis, Katherine Hepburn, Kevin Costner, Barbra Streisand, the Beatles’ George Harrison, Brad Pitt, Madonna, Thomas Edison, and Oprah Winfrey, have all been guests there, as well as many others. Several movies and TV shows have used the famed Coronado hotel as a backdrop, such as “Some Like It Hot” starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon. The Hotel Del was once listed by USA Today as one of the top ten resorts in the world. Most people do not know that the Hotel Del Coronado also appears on a U.S. postage stamp! That is a trivia-buster if ever there was one! On the U.S. postage stamp honoring Hollywood movie director, Billy Wilder, with images of Marilyn Monroe, the Hotel Del Coronado is

The series was tied at 2 games apiece. After splitting games 5 and 6, it was down to a make or break game 7. Could Mel pitch again on 3 days of rest? The manager asked him to try.
Game 7 was a pitchers’ duel. Still tied at 0-0 going into the bottom of the ninth, Mel took the mound. What he didn’t know was that one of the opposing players had noticed that Mel liked to drink beer between innings, while he was sitting in the dugout. He bought a beer from a beer vendor in the stands, and slipped a ‘Mickey Finn’ in it, before delivering it to Mel’s dugout, and Mel drank the whole cup full during the top of the ninth inning. It didn’t seem to be affecting him, because in the ninth, he struck out the first two batters with 6 pitches. His next four pitches weren’t even close to being a strike, and the opponent had a man on first. Then Mel threw four more pitches like the last four, and now there were two men on. Four more pitches and the bases were loaded. Mel was obviously being affected now, but the manager could only hope he could straighten out. He didn’t, and ended up walking in the winning run. A reporter interviewing the opposing manager asked him what he thought won the game for them. His answer was “Schlitz!”
The reporter said, “Schlitz? Why

Many people are surprised to know that the Hotel Del (aka simply as “The Del”), was the site of the world’s first electrically-lit, outdoor Christmas tree, in 1904. As reported in the San Diego Union newspaper, December 25, 1904: “All day yesterday electricians were busy fitting it (the outdoor Christmas tree) up and by night 250 lights of many colors gave beauty to the fine old pine.” Incidentally, history’s first outdoor Christmas tree that was illuminated by electric light bulbs, stood at a height of over fifty feet. The hotel lighting inside was also a world’s first for any hotel in the world! However, because electricity was still a phenomenon to many, just in case it didn’t work out for the interior lighting of The Del, “Electric wires were installed inside the gas lines so if the ‘new-fangled’ electricity didn’t work, they could always pipe gas in to illuminate the rooms.” Newfangled? Lord, have mercy – I’ll have to look that one up in the dictionary! As my grandpa would say, “That thar word’s got whiskers on it.”
WHICH FRUIT BELOW DOES SAN DIEGO PRODUCE MORE THAN ANY OTHER U.S. COUNTY? A. B. C. D.
Oranges Tomatoes Strawberries Avocados
If you selected “D” above, well, you get to go to the head of the class! And yes, botanists worldwide classify the avocado, technically, as a true fruit and not a vegetable (scientists also classify the tomato as a fruit, as well).
In regards to avocados, San Diego County grows more than any other county in the United States! According to the California Avocado Commission and California’s Agricultural Crop and Livestock Report, California produces 90 percent of America’s total avocado crop. Out of that, 49% of all avocados produced in our Golden State come

By the way, San Diego County is famous for producing other crops such as greens, herbs, tomatoes and strawberries. (Note: California is the nation’s leading producer of tomatoes and 90% of all strawberries in the U.S.) In California, the county of San Diego is the 4th largest tomato-producing area, behind San Joaquin, Merced, and Fresno, according to the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources. And regarding strawberries, San Diego County’s miscellaneous berries come in earlier than any other strawberries in California! Thank you, berry, berry much! MOST BROADWAY PLAYS ORIGINATED IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY.
Yes, you read that correctly! Many Hollywood producers started their plays in San Diego County, before they became seasoned enough to travel off to the Big White Way (Broadway in New York). Balboa Park’s famous Old Globe theatre combined with the La Jolla Playhouse have sent more shows to Broadway than any other county in the United States! I SMELL SOMETHING FISHY.
It is truly amazing how many things our metropolitan region is recognized for, around the globe. For example, San Diego County was once the “Tuna Capital of the World,” from the 1930s to the late 1970s. WORLD’S FIRST JACK-IN-THEBOX.
In 1951 American businessman and philanthropist, Robert Oscar Peterson (1916 – 1994), founded the world’s firstever Jack in the Box in San Diego County! The drive-through was, at the time, very innovative with speakers outside that received food orders from cars driving through. To avoid confusion, a drive-through is distinguished from a drive-in restaurant as such: A drivethrough is where cars line up to give their order at a microphone setup, such as at McDonald’s, or Jack in the Box. A drive-in is where cars can park and let the car hop (who may walk or roller

skate to your car) receive your food order and then bring your order back to your parked car. (It is important to point this out because various fast-food sources claim to be the first in both these concepts. Jack in the Box is not considered the first in either of these concepts.) The world’s first drivethrough restaurant is believed to have been “Red’s Giant Hamburg,” on U.S. Route 66 in Springfield, Missouri, in 1947, created by Sheldon “Red” Chaney. According to author, Michael Karl Wizel, the first drive-through windows were tested as far back as 1931 by the Texas Pig Stand Chain at “Kirby’s Pig Stand,” which opened in Dallas, Texas, in 1921. Though they tested the drivethrough concept, Kirby’s Pig Stand became what many believe to be the first drive-in restaurant in the United States. However, other sources claim this honor as well. The world’s first Jack-in-the-Box was created in San Diego by Robert Oscar Peterson, a native San Diegan who graduated from Hoover High School in 1933. He went on to establish other popular eateries, such as Oscar’s drive-in diner, located at 6270 El Cajon Blvd. in San Diego. Other Oscars (not to be confused with today’s Oscar’s Mexican restaurants) sprang up, including locations at Midway Drive and Rosecrans. This may shock you out of your socks, but here are some menu prices from July 18, 1947, from Oscar’s drive-in diner: Double-Deck Hamburgers 25-cents, steak sandwich 40-cents, shrimp dinner 75-cents, Oscar’s Special Steak Dinner with French fries $1-dollar, Thin Pancakes 20-cents, pie 15-cents, soft drink 10-cents each. Wow! I sure wish we could bring back those prices! SAN DIEGO COUNTY HAS THE MOST INDIAN RESERVATIONS IN AMERICA. Wow, that’s quite a big statement – but it’s true!

impressed with you! On record, San Diego County has more Native American reservations than any other U.S. county: there are 18 federally recognized Indian reservations in our county region!

WHERE WAS CHARLES LINDBERGH’S PLANE BUILT? A. B. C. D.
Rohr Aeronautics in Chula Vista. General Dynamics in San Diego. San Diego Aerodynamics. Ryan Airlines in San Diego.
As is taught in every school, Charles Lindbergh, known as “Lucky Lindy” and “The Lone Eagle,” was the first person to make a solo nonstop flight across the Atlantic Ocean in May of 1927. Other pilots had crossed the Atlantic before him, but Lindbergh was the first to accomplish this alone nonstop. If you selected “D” above, you are correct: Charles Lindbergh had his “Spirit of St. Louis” airplane built right here, at Ryan Airlines in San Diego.
At age 25, Lindbergh’s worldwide celebrity grew to gigantic proportions to the point of being idolized and viewed in almost mythical proportions! He had made a tour of eighty-two cities across America, covered 22,350 miles, and delivered 147 speeches and was seen by an estimated thirty million people! Every city in the world clamored for his presence, yet San Diego became his unabashed favorite. Not only in sentiment because his immortal “Spirit of St. Louis” was built here, but simply because his love for San Diego ran much deeper, more powerful, on a personal level. Knowing full-well that his every word was global news he, nevertheless, placed San Diego above all others in his speech for all the world to hear. Regarding his reception here, he rose and standing before the international press corps and audience he praised San Diego above any other city on the Blue Marble: “It was a most intense reception, unequalled in any city which has seen fit to honor me.

The Paper • Page 4 • May 19, 2016 Escondido Man Arrested for Firing Air Rifle at Residence
On Tuesday, May 10th, at about 11:31 am, the Escondido Police Department was contacted by a City of Escondido Parks employee stating he saw a lone male subject seated in a black BMW parked at Kit Carson Park. The male in the car had been pointing what appeared to be a rifle at LR Green School. The employee was able to get a license plate before the vehicle fled the scene. No shots were fired at this time. Officers responded to the area but were unable to locate the vehicle or the male driver. At about 1:00 pm Escondido Police Dispatch received a call from a female in the 2200 block of Conway Drive indicating a male subject in a black BMW had just shot at her house with a long rifle that had a scope. The damage from the shooting was a cracked window. The reporting party confronted the male and took photos of him, the rifle and the car before he fled the scene.
As officers responded to the location, the following schools were placed in lock-down status as a precaution: Rincon, N. Broadway, Conway and Calvin Christian. Upon arrival, officers determined through the photos that this was, in fact, the same suspect vehicle seen earlier at Kit Carson Park. They were able to identify the male driver as Robert Beltran, a 50-year-old Escondido resident, and the rifle was identified as a CO2-powered pellet rifle. Officers checked Beltran’s residence but he
was not home. Based on the information gathered by officers, the school lock-down was lifted.
Officers ultimately made contact with Beltran via cell phone and he agreed to come to the Police Department, where he was taken into custody without incident. Beltran was charged with Unlawful Negligent Discharge of a Firearm and booked into the Vista Jail. Coaster Kills Pedestrian in Carlsbad
On Thursday, May 12th at 1:22 p.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department was notified that the North County Transit Train, the Coaster, struck and killed a pedestrian in an area just north of Palomar Airport Road. The San Diego County Sheriff ’s Department transit unit patrols the railway and responded to conduct the investigation into the collision. The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office responded to take custody of and identify the victim. Carlsbad Police Department Searches for Crime Vctims to return Recovered Property

Man About Town
As you may have heard, there’s a big concert coming up on Friday, June 3rd. The classic songs of the Beatles and the Beach Boys, performed by Abbey Road and Surfin’ - two superbly talented tribute bands that will have you tapping your toes, singing along, and having a grand old time.
What’s more ... the concert is being held on some pretty hallowed ground . . . the estate of Arie and Anneke DeJong, known as Melrose Ranch, located at 16757 Old Guejito Grade Road, Escondido, just a few minutes east of Lake Wohlford, a short jog to your right . . . and you’re there!
This venue is ideal for such a great concert under the stars. Fit for a King, in fact. Back in 1925, Lord Somerville, a member of Britain’s landed gentry, moved from Scotland to the Bear Valley district of Valley Center and pur-
Edward, Prince of Wales, later, King Edward VIII, with Mrs. Wallis Simpson
Then came the King. In 1933, Lord Somerville hosted Edward, Prince of Wales, who was courting the American divorcee Mrs. Wallis Simpson, while visiting the Valley Center estate. Edward would become King Edward VIII in 1936. He was King for only 11 months, when he abdicated the throne to marry Mrs. Simpson. The couple then became the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
The officer found a vehicle with licenses plates that did not match the vehicle and that were later found to be stolen. After further investigation the officer found that the vehicle was stolen from La Jolla the previous weekend. The investigation led officers to the suspect who was staying in the motel under a stolen identity. Officers arrested 44-year-old John Fuller in a motel room for auto theft, possession of stolen property and identity theft.
During the investigation, officers found numerous pieces of property for which the Police Department is seeking an owner. Investigators think this property is probably from a wide area in San Diego. The property includes unusual items like antique personal photos, medals and an urn with dog ashes.
The community is asked to view and share the photos of the recovered property. All the photos can be viewed on the department’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/carlsbadpolicedepartment.

Letters to the Editor Fans of The Paper
We are addicted to your paper, all of us!
We finally read something that we could understand about the nature of the universe as well as what today's scientists think about the concept of a God. My neighbor, Mrs. Florence Stillwell, is 74 years old and she couldn't put the article down! It was also funny in parts. She circulated it around to her senior friends at New Venture Christian Church in Vista where pastor Shawn Mitchell preaches.
"In the Beginning" by Friederich Gomez was brilliant and now everyone is curious what is next? Word about The Paper is spreading like wild fire and I see it all around me! Every time I'm with friends I always

received a 911 call regarding a male subject yelling for help in the 3000 block of North Broadway. Initially, the crime was believed to have occurred in the county portion of Escondido, and San Diego Sheriff ’s Deputies were sent to the call. On arrival, the deputies found a 31 year old male suffering from multiple injuries to his head, consisting of blunt force trauma and a gunshot. The victim was transported to a local area hospital where he underwent surgery for his injuries. At approximately 12:14 am on May 15, it was discovered the location of the crime was actually in the city portion of Escondido, and Escondido Police Officers were dispatched to assume control of the investigation. During the course of the investigation, two male subjects were arrested for their involvement in the crime: 27 year old Edgar Bueno Pacheco and 21 year old Oscar Bueno Pacheco, both Escondido residents. Both suspects were charged with Attempted Murder and booked into the Vista Jail. Anyone with information regarding this crime is asked to notify Detective John O’Donnell of the Escondido Police Department at (760) 8394756. Man Wrongfully Accused, Sent to Prison, Almost Dies . . . is now Free
In 1996 he was just 18 years old.
He was convicted and served seven years, 2442 days in prison, 145 days in jail.
A woman had accused him of violently raping her in a trash enclosure in Rancho Bernardo. Kevin Baruxes served seven years of his 18-to-life sentence before the woman finally said that he didn’t do it. The woman, 20-year-old Courtni Mahaffy, told police in 1996 that three men, including Baruxes, who had just turned 18, raped her at knifepoint. Every time Mahaffy spoke to detectives, her story changed, according to court documents. In a recent interview, Baruxes said he barely knew Mahaffy. She and her husband lived in an apartment below one of his friends. Baruxes was stabbed once in prison, with serious injuries.
In 2002, the district attorney’s office received an email from Mike Chaney, Mahaffy’s ex-fiance, according to court documents. Chaney said that Mahaffy confessed to him that Baruxes did not rape her. He also said she was a chronic liar. Meanwhile, a prosecutor tracked down Mahaffy, who admitted over the phone that she didn’t think Baruxes had raped her. Baruxes went free soon after. He received $258,000 in compensation.
He now has a wife and 2-year-old daughter and has moved to the Temecula area.

could surpass its genuine enthusiasm, its heartfelt sentiment. Neither Paris nor London equaled San Diego.” (The Journal of San Diego History, Vol. 40, Nos. 1 & 2.)
Charles Lindbergh was awarded the nation’s highest military decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his historic-setting flight. When “Lucky Lindy” spoke at the city stadium (later known as Balboa Stadium), celebrity Will Rogers sat beside him. Normally quiet and shy, Lindbergh laughed at Roger’s warm-up jokes before taking the podium. Rogers warned the crowd not to get too excited about “air mail” in spite of what they had been told. Rogers quipped, “Although you can get a letter faster, when you open it, it is only a real estate advertisement!”
Lindbergh never forgot San Diego County, even as a non-pilot. He loved the dinner honoring him at the Hotel Del Coronado. The Del stole his heart. But, San Diegans – as mentioned in his speech – were beyond any assemblage that had saluted him, even though his ticker-tape parade in New York was huge. When his plane approached our beautiful city at a low altitude from Los Angeles on September 21, 1927, he knew that many San Diegans would greet him. Always grateful to San Diego’s Ryan Airlines, he loved San Diegans most. He twice circled the Ryan plant near the waterfront while flying on his side. Next, he headed back and made eight circles over the city stadium, buzzing over the center of the field at only 100 feet, while dipping his wings in returning his salute to San Diego residents and recalling his words: “Neither Paris nor London equaled San Diego.”
The author, Friederich Gomez
Editor’s Note: This is the 40th cover story the very prolific author, Friedrich Gomez, has written for us . . . and, we suspect, he’s just getting started. He is local. Many of you have met him on the street, in the library, at restaurants. While he tends to be shy he is very appreciative of the love and affection you have showered upon him.
He is a fascinating man. Bilingual, speaking and reading fluent German as well as English, he also is an avid student of the Kumeyaay, his native American nation. Stay tuned; more to come from Mr. Gomez!

Schlitz?” and the manager replied “Schlitz is the beer that made Mel Famey walk us!” ( think of the old TV ads "Schlitz is the beer that made Milwaukee famous.") Saying goodbye to mother (not sad) We were dressed, and ready to go out for the New Years Eve Party. We turned on a night light, turned the answering machine on, covered our pet parakeet, and put the cat in the backyard. We phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and we opened the front door to leave the house.
As we walked out the door, the cat we had put out in the yard, scoots back into the house. We didn't want the cat shut in the house. Because she always tries to eat the bird. My wife goes on out to the taxi, while I went back inside to get the cat. The cat runs upstairs, with me in hot pursuit. Waiting in the cab, my wife doesn't want the driver to know that the house will be empty for the night. So, she explains to the taxi driver that I will be out soon, 'He's just going upstairs to say Goodbye to my mother.'
A few minutes later, I get into the cab. 'Sorry I took so long,' I said, as we drove away. 'That stupid bitch was hiding under the bed. I had to poke her ass with a
California’s Housing Crisis
California is the nation’s largest state, with a population estimated at just over 39 million. The availability of housing has not kept up with population growth. As is so often the case in California, government intervention has been counterproductive, resulting in an inadequate supply and skyrocketing housing costs, along with a lack of sustainable water and energy reliability.
Programs that subsidize housing cannot begin to meet the massive backlog that has been created. But there is an obvious solution to this problem – less government with fewer, more streamlined regulations that will increase the supply of housing and decrease costs. Fees imposed by various state and local jurisdictions are another problem. For example. regulations require one “low cost” home for every
coat hanger to get her to come out! She tried to take off, so I grabbed her by the neck. Then, I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked! I hauled her fat ass downstairs and threw her out into the back yard!' The cab driver hit a parked car. For the Over 50 Crowd
When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were when they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning ... Uphill ... Barefoot ... BOTH ways ...yadda, yadda, yadda And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way in hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on my kids about how hard I had it and how easy they've got it!
But now that I'm over the ripe old age of fifty, I can't help but look around and notice the youth of today. You've got it so easy! I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a damn Utopia! And I hate to say it, but you kids today, you don't know how good you've got it! 1) I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have the Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the damn library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!!

10 built, or payment of a fee which can amount to thousands. Storm water compliance can cost up to $25,000 and hooking up to water and sewer lines can add another $20,000 – per home!
California’s huge unmet housing demand should lead to developers lining up to fill the need. That has not been the case in recent years. In San Diego County alone, we need about 12,000 new units per year to meet demand. While local construction once met or exceeded that number, the county is short approximately 50,000 housing units over the past 10 years. Stringent regulations and excessive fees make expanding our housing stock extremely difficult. This crisis will worsen and costs will continue to rise as long as government continues to hinder the state’s once thriving housing industry. Until these factors are resolved, the Golden State simply won’t be golden for millions of people.

have in the back of my mind to pick up The Paper because I'm dying to see what new exciting subject will be written about. So now I'm afraid I'm going to miss something so I make sure we all pick up The Paper on Thursdays! You got a really amazing writer and we all just love Mr. Gomez and we're all addicted fans of his. When could we ever meet him?
I have a question to you Mr. Editor Lyle E. Davis. All of us have seen your on Wings of America tour at Carlsbad Palomar Airport where people can see these vintage planes close up and even take a ride. Are you a pilot? Someone told me you have a pilot's license and you fly airplanes! We're curious because we love these old planes and have gone to the Aerospace Museum in Balboa Park but missed the Wings of America Tour. Also question two is where can we get more information on the Concert Under The Stars that you advertised in The Paper? The music of the Beatles and Beach Boys sounds most exciting! One last thing, we appreciate Evelyn Madison for her Social Butterfly column because we would have missed many, many important community events if it weren't for her column. Instead of looking here and there and everywhere we just read The Social Butterfly column and it has just about everything at one's fingertips! Keep up the good work! We all love your publication! And God bless you for always, always supporting our military troops and saying nothing but good things about them. You are a true American! From the Rasmussen Family & Friends Escondido, California
Editor’s Note: Plans are in the works for a gathering where readers of The Paper will be able to meet and greet all of the writers, including Friedrich Gomez. That is probably a month or so away. Yes, I am a licensed pilot but am not current (pilots are required to undergo a biennial flight review and I have not done so for years) so I have flown planes . . . but not recently. I miss flying but simply don’t have the time to bring myself current and then fly around the country. Too much work to do editing The Paper every week.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
When Radio Was King
During the thirties and forties there was nothing more powerful in communications than radio, both for information and entertainment.
Radio was a medium where fading movie stars could find refuge; where unknown actors could find a job; and stage performers could earn enough until their next big break. At one time, the legendary Orson Wells starred on three separate programs, (one was “The Shadow), rushing back and forth to the various studios in an ambulance with screaming siren in order to navigate the New York City traffic. Unlike today, where much of the television entertainment is produced and controlled by production companies in Hollywood, most of the thirties and forties radio programs were produced in New York City. It’s hard to put a figure on just which genre was the most popular. Radios during the thirties and the forties primarily were tuned to myriad of comedy and mystery programs. And, for the kids there were a number of serial programs that ensured youngsters were home by 4:30 p.m. to listen to “Straight Arrow,” “Sky King,” “The Lone Ranger,” and “Little Orphan Annie,” to name but a few. Getting kids in front of the radio in the late afternoon made sure we were home for dinner (supper in the Mid-West).
Monday through Friday daytimes were dedicated primarily to housewives. Throughout the day the serialized lives of “Stella Dallas,” “Lorenzo Jones,” “One Man’s Family,” “Ma Perkins,” “Front Page Farrell,” and dozens more kept wives company while they did their ironing, sewing, and prepared for the evening meal. Two things essential for the American home during evenings of the thirties and forties was the radio and the evening newspaper. Dad would come home and after the evening meal he would sit down to his paper while listening to the evening news presented by commentators such as Morgan Beatty, H.B. Kaltenbourne, and Gabriel Heater. Afterward, the family would gather around the radio to listen to evening programming. Kaltenbourne would begin his program by declaring the mood of the broadcast by saying: “Ah, friends, there’s grave (good) news tonight!” Two genres dominated the evening radio entertainment: comedy/musi-
cal shows and mystery/drama. These programs were among the most popular in history and a few survived over to television in the late forties and into the fifties. “Fibber McGee & Molly” was one of the stalwarts of evening comedy, as was “The Fred Allen Show,” “Jack Benny,” “Bob Hope,” “Al Jolson,” “Henry Aldrich,” “The Great Gildersleeve,” “Baby Snooks,” (with Fanny Brice), “Lum & Abner,” “Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy.” Probably the most popular program of the week was the “Amos ‘n’ Andy Show.” It was so popular movie theaters would stop their films and amplify the program throughout the auditorium so patrons would not miss hearing the latest episode. Ironically, “Amos ‘n’ Andy” were two white guys posing as African-Americans in comedic situations. Present-day that show would probably end up in civil court with myriad of lawsuits. For mysteries and drama, during the thirties, forties and well into the fifties, shows came and went with a few lasting all the way through the golden years of radio and onto television. “Damon Runyon Theater,” The Lux Radio Theater,” Orson Wells’ “Mercury Theater” (where he frightened the nation with his infamous “War of the Worlds” on Halloween), “Johnny Dollar,” “Sam Spade,” “The Shadow,” “Phillip Marlowe,” “The FBI in Peace & War,” “The Falcon,” “Gangbusters,” were among the dozens of crime-fighting presentations. There were a few game shows such as “Doctor I.Q.,” “Truth or Consequences,” “People Are Funny.”
Radio transformed the nation. President Franklin Roosevelt was the first chief executive to take advantage of the medium. Knowing how most families across America would be around their radios in the evening, FDR held regular “Fireside Chats” with the nation. He’d go directly into the homes with his message, rather than trust newspapers to properly deliver the information.
This short space is designed to whet the appetite of readers wanting history on this wonderful period in our history. Libraries and the Internet have myriad of books on this subject.

2) There was no email!! We had to actually write somebody a letter with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox, and it would take like a week to get there! Stamps were 10 cents!
3) Child Protective Services didn't care if our parents beat us. As a matter of fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to kick our ass! Nowhere was safe! 4) There were no MP3's or Napsters or iTunes! If you wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself! 5) Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio, and the DJ would usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up! There were no CD players! We had tape decks in our car or those great 8 track players. We'd play our favorite tape and "eject" it when finished, and then the tape would come undone rendering it useless. Cause, hey, that's how we rolled, Baby! Dig?
6) We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called, they got a busy signal, that's it!
7) There weren't any freakin' cell phones either. If you left the house, you just didn't make a damn call or receive one. You actually had to be out of touch with your "friends". OH

MY GOSH! Think of the horror ... not being in touch with someone 24/7! And then there's TEXTING. Yeah, right. Please! You kids have no idea how annoying you are.
8) And we didn't have fancy Caller ID either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school, your parents, your boss, your bookie, your drug dealer, the collection agent ... you just didn't know!-- You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!
9) We didn't have any fancy PlayStation or Xbox video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600! With games like 'Space Invaders' and 'Asteroids'. Your screen guy was a little square! You actually had to use your imagination! And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen. Forever! And you could never win. The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died! Just like LIFE!
10) You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on! You were screwed when it came to channel surfing! You had to get off your ass and walk over to the TV to change the channel! NO REMOTES! Oh, no, what's the world coming to?! 11) There was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I'm saying? We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you spoiled little rats!

12) And we didn't have microwaves. If we wanted to heat something up, we had to use the stove! Imagine that!
13) And our parents told us to stay outside and play ... all day long. Oh, no, no electronics to soothe and comfort. And if you came back inside ... you were doing chores! And car seats - oh, please! Mom threw you in the back seat and you hung on. If you were lucky, you got the "safety arm" across the chest at the last moment if she had to stop suddenly, and if your head hit the dashboard, well that was your fault for calling "shot gun" in the first place!

We will begin by diagnosing the problem. You tell us what's wrong, and we will not only confirm it, but also diagnose where the issue is stemming from.
In most cases, air conditioning problems stem back to low levels of refrigerant. Unfortunately, replacing the refrigerant will not be enough to fix the problem. If your refrigerant levels are low, we will need to determine why.
If it is because of a leak, we will need to determine where the leak is coming from before we can repair it. If there is no problem with your refrigerant levels, then we will move on to rule out other issues that could be causing your air conditioner to malfunction.
For the hot days that are sure to come... now's the time to get the jump on the air conditioning season and be ready for when the temps climb and climb and climb... you'll be enjoying air conditioned comfort.

A Weekly Memo from the Councilmembers of Your Community published in the belief that it is important for elected leaders to communicate with their constituents and that constituents have a means of hearing from their elected leaders. Density vs. Sprawl
Council Member, Represents District 3
The South Escondido area is a magnet for new development. Several projects are either under construction or will be shortly. This area of Escondido is a mix of older housing and businesses. New, higher density housing is causing concern among current residents about views and traffic. My cocnerns are related to infrastructure. Our General Plan for that area allows greater housing density in order to

take advantage of freeway access. Smart growth principles encourage infill development and density rather than suburban sprawl. As a society, we learned that sprawl leads to greater infrastructure maintenance expense and environmental damages. Escondido is an older city with pockets of undeveloped land tucked here and there. Although new developments include infrastructure on-site, the City has to take responsibility for managing the totality of impacts to existing neighbors and for connecting our new and old neighborhoods with

This handsome little boy was brought in by his previous owners when they were no longer able to care for him, and he’s been making tons of new friends since the minute he walked through our doors. He loves other dogs and adult humans - almost as much as he loves curling up on a soft bed and napping in the warm sun.

In South Escondido, neighborhoods roads near these new developments are in disrepair. Brotherton and Citricado are old country roads that can hardly accommodate existing traffic. They need repaving and curb cuts, preferably sidewalks, in order to accommodate vehicle and pedestrian traffic safety. Residents expect proper planning by the City and we need to do more to ensure that South Escondido gets the appropriate focus.

The Pastor Says . . .
Pastor Sam Brumit, Mission 316 Church, San Marcos, CA. Live like you were dying
Years ago, I first heard the song by Tim McGraw entitled “Live Like you were Dying.” The gist of this country tear jerker was that a guy in his early 40’s gets the news his life was soon to end. When asked what did you do … He responded: I went sky divin', I went rocky mountain climbin', I went 2.7 seconds on a bull name Fumanchu. And I loved deeper, And I spoke sweeter, And I gave forgiveness I've been denying , He went on to say he was finally the husband that most of the time he wasn’t; became the friend a friend would like to have; found going fishing was not such an imposition, etc.
He finally read the “good book” and took a long hard look at what he’d do if he could do it all again. The song ends with him saying this: “Like tomorrow was a gift and you've got eternity To think about what you do with it, What could you do with it…, what would I do with it.” The psalmist says “teach us to number our days and recognize how few they are; help us to spend them as we should.” Psalm 90:12
I believe that God did not design us to watch our lives pass us by. He created us to take risks of faith and to really live. Diane Ackerman said “I don't want to get to the end of my life and find out that I have just lived the length of it, I want to live the width of it as well.” Like you, I want to gain perspective on my life. I want my life to consist of more than just watching a series or sitcom reruns or cleaning up some files on my hard drive… I want a “no regrets” life. Don’t you? In the meantime, you might want to spend more time with your spouse, love on your kids, and get to know the God who is crazy about you.
By the way, I’m not so sure about the “2.7 seconds on a bull name Fumanchu” thing though.

The Bass Boat
A good ol' East Texas boy won a bass boat in a raffle drawing. He brought it home and his wife looks at him and says, "What you gonna do with that. There ain't no water deep enough to float a boat within 100 miles of here." He says, "I won it and I'm a-gonna keep it."
His brother came over to visit several days later. He sees the wife and asks where his brother is. She says, "He's out there in his bass boat," pointing to the field behind the house.
The brother heads out behind the house and sees his brother in the middle of a big field sitting in a bass boat with a fishing rod in his hand. He yells out to him, "What are you doin'?" His brother replies, "I'm fishin'. What does it look like I'm a doin'?" His brother yells, "It's people like you that give people from East Texas a bad name, makin' everybody think we're stupid.

Your recent issue on political humour was delightful and refreshing and added an ambiance of colour to the political landscape. Here are a few political anecdotes of my own that I am pleased to share with you and your readers:
This one goes all the way back to the 1944 presidential election when Thomas E. Dewey, the Governor of New York, was running against Franklin D. Roosevelt, the incumbent. Schoolchildren often find some ingenious ways to have fun at election time. Up and down the schoolyard the children chanted: "Roosevelt in the White House ready to be elected, Dewey in the trash can waiting to be collected !"
Others who favoured the Republican candidate just turned the names around, putting Dewey in the White House and Roosevelt in the trash can.
Back during the Vietnam War, when the United States was still trying to prop up the unpopular South Vietnamese regime, Madame Nhu, the First Lady of South Vietnam paid a visit to the United States. Various ones who weren't pleased with her presence in the country picketed her wherever she went. It was reported at the time that she didn't pay her bill at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Her full name was "Ngo Diem Nhu." And these pickets had some clever signs expressing their disdain, two of

May: Water Safety Month
In recognition of the popularity of water-related activities and the need for water safety education, May is National Water Safety month. When planning water activities, the Vista Fire Department reminds everyone to practice the ABC’s of water safety: • A: Adult supervision at all times. Always watch the water. • B: Barriers on all doors/gates leading to pool areas, including doggie doors. • C: Classes: Enroll kids in swim lessons. Learn CPR. Other safety tips include keeping
a first aid kit poolside and removing objects such as toys that could entice a child into the pool or area. Remove chairs/other furniture, so that a child cannot use it to climb into a fenced pool area. Remember, don’t think you’ll hear a child who is in trouble in the water; child drowning is a silent death, often with no splashing to alert anyone that the child is in trouble. Please practice water safety tips during the upcoming summer months. More information is available by contacting the Vista Fire Department 760.643.2801 or by online at WaternationalSafetymonth.org.

which read: "No Nhus Is Good News!" and "Ngo Diem Nhu is Ngo Diem Good !" And after Richard Nixon met his "waterloo" at Watergate, this question made the rounds: "What lesson did Nixon learn from Watergate?"
The answer: "Not to hire non-union plumbers!"
And who could forget the notorious O. J. Simpson trial which, sad to say, virtually ruined Marcia Clarks career in law. In reality, she had enough evidence to salt him away several times over -- but his "dream team" of lawyers enabled him to get away with murder, literally! Meanwhile, this anecdote was presented in the "Knock - knock" format: A: B: A: B: A:
"Knock, knock" "Whose there?" "O. J." "O. J. Who?" "You're on the jury !"
In closing, I must mention the anecdote that recently appeared in "Give Us This Day our Daily Chuckle" [21st April 2016 issue] about the enterprising New York Gate attendant for United Airlines and how she so expertly dealt with that irate passenger who with such unbridled aggression tried to push his way to the front of the queue. That one was truly a classic ! Respectfully, Vern W. Baker

CPU with a speed of 6300 on the Passmark Benchmark scale (450 times faster than the Pentium 100). The PC has 8GB of RAM, a 2.0 TByte hard drive, and a 1.0GB Video. The rest of the components are a DVD-R/W, Ethernet, mouse, keyboard and Windows 7 or 10. The cost of this PC is $595. Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory
A Million Dollar PC?
We were cleaning a file cabinet last week and came across a copy of our systems pricing from 1996. We thought it might be fun to see how the technology and prices have changed over the past twenty years. We picked a desktop PC workstation from the 1996 price sheet and one from the 2016 price sheet to compare.
The desktop PC that we selected from our 1996 price sheet had a Pentium 100 CPU with a speed rating of 14 on the Passmark Benchmark scale. The computer also had 32MB of RAM, a 2.0GB hard drive and a 1MB video card. The rest of the components consisted of a CD-ROM, floppy, modem, speakers, keyboard, mouse and Windows 95. This system was priced at just under $1600. The desktop we selected from our May 2016 price sheet has a FX 6300 six core
Here is a comparison of the cost per unit (MB, GB, benchmark speed) between 1996 and 2016.
Hard disc drives:
CPU (Pentium 100) RAM Video
1996 = $150/GB. 2016 = 3 cents/GB
1996= $28/Benchmark 2016= 1.6 cents/Benchmark 1996 = $15/MB 2016 = 0.4 cents/MB
In 1996 the prices for the four major components in our 1996 PC were, a 2GB hard drive = $300 ($150/GB X 2GB), 32MB of RAM= $480 ($15/MB X32MB) Pentium 100 = $406 and 1MB video card=$100 ($100/MB) for a total of $1286 at 1996 prices. Using 2016 prices to cost the 4 major components in our 1996 PC gives the following result. 2.0GB hard drive = 6 cents (3 cents/GB X 2.GB), 32MB of RAM = 13 cents (0.4 cents/MB x 32MB), Pentium 100 = 22.4 cents (1.6cents per speed benchmark X 14 marks), and the video card = 4 cents (4 cents/ MB X 1MB). Those four major components of our 1996 PC that cost over $1300 in 1996 would be worth only
a shade over 45 cents at today’s component prices.
It would have been impossible to build a PC as powerful as the FX6300 even for several million dollars in 1995 just as it would be impossible to duplicate a Pentium 100 computer for 45 cents today. The point is that innovation and technology driven by competition have lowered prices and increased functionality to a phenomenal degree throughout the computer/communications Industry. The major exception is Microsoft. The cost of their Windows and Office products have continued to rise and functionality? Not so much. Monopoly is as monopoly does.
1996 = $100/MB 2016 = 4.0 cents/MB
We first priced out our 2016 desktop workstation using component pricing from our 1996 price sheet. At $150/GB our 2.0 Terabyte hard drive would cost $300,000. RAM pricing in 1996 was $15/MB so our 8GB of RAM would cost $120,000. The FX 6300 has the power of 450 Pentium 100s; each Pentium cost $400 so our CPU cost calculates to be $180,000. Our 1GB video card with 1000 times the memory of the 1996 card would have cost $100,000 in 1996. Adding up the 1996 prices of the four major components in our 2016 PC comes to a staggering $700,000.

A guy is walking along a Florida beach when he comes across a lamp partially buried in the sand. He picks up the lamp and gives it a rub. A genie appears and tells him he has been granted one wish. The guy thinks for a moment and says, "I want to live forever."
"Sorry," said the genie, "I'm not allowed to grant eternal life." The guy says, "OK, then I want to die after Congress balances the budget and eliminate the national debt."
