THE PUBLIC I The 30th was labeled as the Republican Thanksgiving, while the 23rd became the Democratic Thanksgiving, or, as Nucky Johnson, the recently indicted Republican mayor of Atlantic City called Franklin Roosevelt's holiday, "Franksgiving". There were a few real problems hidden under this haze of invented outrage. And then he resigned. In 1937 the Roosevelt administration opened "The Mellon Tax Case", investigating Andrew and his ties while serving at Treasury to the family bank. They figured the boy didn't know enough about Virginia (or Indians) to argue with them if they made him a general. The next thing we may expect Christmas to be shifted to May first to help the New York World's Fair of 1940." Twenty-three governors went with the President's switch, and twenty-two did not. With assistance he clambered aboard an ox cart, and suffered the jarring forty-five minute long, three quarters of a mile ride back to his boarding house in Cavendish, where he waited for an hour on the front porch for the arrival of Dr. And that was required to keep the curiosity level high enough to bring repeat customers behind the fence. * The breaking point for Paul arrived in 1902. But it just seemed less tacky that the idea would be put forward by a Brit rather than by an American. He was also a Senator representing Nevada. When Barnum's Tom Thumb got married, the miniature pony and coach which carried the diminutive bride and groom away from the church, were provided by Tiffany, and beforehand displayed in his store. Almost one third of the world's oversupply of cow burps (the primary source of methane) comes from India's 280 million sacred cows. He was a star in P.T. "I have been deposed by a patent medicine shark, a greasy-coated hypocrite, a seeker for personal advancement." Like all those caught in the act, Smith's (actually Bazarro's) accusations might have been better used as a self portrait. The next morning Carl Browne called a press conference of his own and revealed what everybody there already knew, that the Great Unknown Smith was actually A.P. But it would not be until 1887 before the Tenure in Office Act would be repealed. Edwin Stanton was nominated to the Supreme Court by the next President, U. And yet we still refuse to recognize these rodents are at war with us, preferring to avoiding admitting their intelligence, instead refereeing to them, in the words of one expert, as "clever and persistent", as if we were unaware that may be an even more dangerous combination than just smart. But the reality was that a majority of speculators lost money. T. Now, Mr. These cars had to be muscled around the track. Wilkerson was, according to historian Robert Leckie "a general who never won a battle and never lost a court-martial" He was suspected of several murders, assorted frauds and constant graft.He even warned the Spanish about the Lewis and Clark expedition, and it was only blind luck that prevented their murders by the Spanish agents sent after them. He was also a puritanical workaholic and a hypochondriac with such a talent for venom that he carried a pistol for protection; although he was so nearsighted it is unlikely he could have hit anything. By studying which species had been found in past wells which had produced oil, these practical capitalists could better judge their chances of finding oil in any new drilling hole. However they were not in a good position to prevent it, holding only 177 seats in the House of Representatives (to 252 Democrats) and a paltry


23 seats in the Senate (to 69 Democrats). And he gave money to the needy so willingly that it seemed at times as if Ralston wasn't interested in being rich, so much as he had an insatiable hunger to be richer than he was. Over the previous half century, the nation of less than 70 million people had produced a ten fold increase in the number of millionaires. According to Virginia Whig Henry Wise, Amos was..."the President's thinking machine and writing machine and his lying machine... So he started by trying everything he could think of. And a future Nixon aid described Murray as "...a hardheaded exponent of the campaign philosophy that politics is war." * Murray's first experience in politics came when he worked for Herbert Hoover in 1932. "The Great" was always followed about by a woman who always wore a veil and never spoke. And to their stunned surprise Hamilton admitted to the affair, but he denied everything else. * Doubters like Sir Jacobi like to point out that there are no copies of Will's plays or poetry from the 1590's with him listed as the author, but over a third of all the plays published at this time listed no author at all. . The body inside was wrapped in tin foil. He was never even questioned about the explosion. One week later, on Friday, September 24, 1920, New York Giants Pitcher Rube Benton testified before the Cook County Grand Jury that he knew the 1919 World Series was fixed, and he mentioned the names of several Chicago Cubs players who were involved. And in that small way, the Nebraska populists won. * - 30 * WEDNESDAY: THE 2011 IDES OF MARCH AWARD * Winnie the Pooh And the Honey Tree BOY JONES I begin this tale by reminding you of the central thesis of all of my columns, including this one, which is that biologically we humans have a limited number of emotional responses to stimuli, so we tend to repeat ourselves. Then he was sent to Freemantle Prison. And that's why every one at the time said he did. * In 1634, almost 20 years after Will's death, a Lieutenant noted that his militia company had stopped at Stratford where, "...that famous English poet, Mr. Mrs. The accused witch was Joan Perry. Meanwhile the standard gauge of American railroads is still just four feet eight and one-half inches. This is pretty big business today, considering about 100 million American flags are currently sold every year. It was shortly thereafter that the now 21 year old Will ran away from home and joined a London theater company, The Lord Chamberlain's Men. The net effect was to convince everybody


that Scott was at least an honest man. And wasn't the truth just as entertaining as the myth? Not to Marie's relatives, of course, but it was for me. And that was probably the only reason why none of freshly disenfranchised voters in the room started shooting. * The sheriff of Lincoln County, surrounded by deputies, smashed down the locked doors of the state legislature, charged to the front of the chamber and forcefully handed the writ to Speaker Elder. They were living examples of the new nation, young, illiterate, hard working and hungry to succeed.So as the soldiers hacked and sawed their way south along "The Trace", the Grinder's followed. And when Teddy decided to run for his own term, in 1904, he was opposed by Republican National Chairman Mark Hanna (below), who protrayed his fellow Republican Teddy as a wild eyed lunatic, and called him "that damn cowboy". What Roosevelt needed in 1904 was anything that would make him look like a stalwart defender of tradition. Which is why it wasn't until after the Northern Italians profited from the capitalist tricks they picked up from their Islamic trading partners that Northern Europe was finally opened for business. The Chicago Herald Examiner had also gotten a letter claiming that Detroit gamblers had bet "thousands" on Philadelphia. The public reaction to the newspaper's allegation convinced Illinois State's Attorney Maclay Hoyne to convene a Cook County Grand Jury on Tuesday, September 7, 1920, to investigate the game. Born Jewish, Casino Jack converted to orthodoxy. At 9:00 on the morning of September 19th, 1714, William and Jane were loaded into a cart along with their hangman and the prison chaplain. Day and night gangs of work men were employed...Galleries were pushed in every direction and ''soundings'' were made between them with long iron tools,...so that no leaden coffin could possibly be missed." The wooden coffins had long since corrided away. John Boyd was officially declared the official governor of the state of Nebraska. But that childhood also goes a long way to explaining how such a smart man, a happily married man and a devoted father could fall for something as old and obvious as the Badger Game. * In 1791 in Philadelphia, twenty-three year old Maria Reynolds, a lovely and avaricious mental midget, approached Hamilton, who was the Secretary of the Treasury. Seven failed - and one of those was Eddie Sachs. * For the first time in its history, the 500 was red flagged. C's depression has been chronic for several years. It is as if this part of the family, and the Republican Party,Ă‚ is still trying to prove that old man Andrew Mellon was right back in 1929,Ă‚ and that the Great Depression did not happen. As Honor de Balzac wrote in his novel, "Father Goriot", "Behind every great fortune...is a crime that has yet to be discovered." - 30 WEDNESDAY: 1920 - GOING OUT WITH A BANG


Black Sox Scandal And The Wall Street Bomb THE WALTZ KING I have always thought of Joseph II, Emperor of Austria, as a bit of a schizophrenic, half enlightened revolutionary and half unsighted dictator, and totally a legend in his own mind. So the order went forth in typical Teddy Roosevelt fashion, "Dig up our hero! Whatever it costs!" General Horace Porter (above) was a civil war hero, a friend of President Grant, and now the amasador to France. On April 24, 1906, he was placed in a temporary tomb in Bancroft Hall at the U.S. It was Social Security that had "engergized the base". As it was initially passed the program did not cover farm workers, the self employed, state, federal or local government workers, railroad workers, or domestics. But Boyd's father had never completed the naturalization paperwork. "My first job in Kansas City was to look up vacant lots...we would give addresses to them vacant lots. Allowing the drive shaft to pass to the right of the cockpit lowered the car a foot or more. * The greatest surviving American racer of our age, A.J. And now I need your help again. Here, Edward managed to jump ship and walked the 60 miles from Portsmouth to London. Family history was unavailable, as the patient could not name any relatives. As Republicans today might note, this action only deepened the depression, and insured that in 1840 the Whigs elected William Henry Harrison President.Amos tried to go back to running newspapers. bordello. But it was the Dutchman Christiaan Huygens, who first drew detailed maps of the surface. An obituary writer tried to explain his extraordinary career by listing his fields of endeavor. Andrew William Mellon (above), a scarecrow of a man whose life reads like a Balzac novel. Recovering from his wounds in occupied Philadelphia in May, Colonel Buncombe was sleepwalking, fell and bled to death when his wounds reopened. Lewis was anxious to get moving and, suspected Russel, to get back to his "medicine". The turnkey leapt upon him, knocking the gun from his hand. The Samaritan brought Waltz and his meager possession into Phoenix. Similar fights sparked to life in the chamber of the House of Representatives, and a "mob" of 600 angry Republicans descended upon every wayward Democrat in the building, punching and kicking them, and, if they resisted, beating them down to the marble floors of the brand new "people's house". * Eventually, the pandemonium returned to its source; the Republicans laid siege to the Senate chamber. (a bit of a comedown this, from a Russian nobleman to a hotel owner.) This time, when William burst into the room he took the trouble to beat up the mark, poor Mr. Jimmy wrote that, in classic Tin Pan Alley fashion, after seeing a post card of Tijuana. Jimmy was an Irishman, and so English was a second language to him: which may help explain his lyrics for... Which leaves me to wonder if being a witch was just an "eggcorn" for that other crime women are often accused of, the one that rhymes with witch. The "Chairman of the Committee on Charity Lecture Bells," is one of the deputation, and perhaps if he should return to Boston, via Providence, he of the Journal, and his train-band, would have his "contribution box," et ceteras, o.k.-all correct--and cause the corks to fly, like sparks, upward." Okay, ignoring Greenes' the convoluted sentence structure for now, the corks were flying because (mythical) champagne bottles had been opened by the (mythical) band of raucous acolytes, in their mythical celebration. And that left Pluto.


* The more people looked at the guardian of the outer realms the odder it looked. Sally was one Crater's mistresses. The oppressed majority were cow pied out to luck. * Thus was born the Farmer's Alliance, which morphed into the People's Independent Party. House of Representatives in November 1857, and he and Terresa moved to a lovely little house in Washington, D.C.. Once the pinnipeds were sated, the "Shoot-the-Chutes" took over the lagoon. * Designed originally by Thomas Polk, for Boyton's Chicago exhibition, it was a short but exciting ride. Unnoticed in the self obsessed rush, the driver abandoned his wagon, in the back of which were 500 pounds of dynamite connected to a clock and timer, surrounded by 500 pounds of cast iron sash weights. Priscilla Grinder must have greeted him warily. It was the maturity date for Jacob's options. Replied Baker, "And I say...no!" The Republican Party rejected the compromise, disingenuously describing it as so badly written that it "...amounts to a perpetual covenant of war against every people, tribe and state owning a foot of land between here and Tierra del Fuego." But the New York Times would later (February 6, 1861) more accurately denounce Senator Crittenden's work because "it has too much the appearance of a device to destroy the Administration in advance of its accession to power...And when the Democrats demand its adoption by the Republicans, they demand, in effect, that they shall abdicate the government which has been committed to their hands, and put in power, not the Democratic Party, but the (Breckenridge) faction." In the end, none of the words mattered. What they discovered was that Ponzi (above on the right) was worth about $8.5 million. Her nearest customers were in Europe. At 24 years of age he became a "Navvie" for the Burlington and Rutland Railroad. Then in 1965 she returned the United States, to Mount Shasta, California and then in 1988 back to Arizona. * Outside of Sedona, she formed "The Association of Sananda and Samat Kumara". Boyd was asking for a writ of mandamus ("...a court order that required another court, government official, public body, corporation or individual, to perform a certain legally required act"). LLC * On Saturday, January 11, 1964 the Surgeon General's report was released to 200 reporters. In a world without paper currency, every coin was literally worth its weight in silver. Its national headquarters occupied 31 rooms in the National Press Building, and there were 20 state branches. Westbrook, managed to have the lawsuit dismissed, but, as one biographer noted, from that day forward, "...there was scarcely a day during his whole life that he did not have some litigation on his hands." His map business made Jay $5, 000, which he invested with Zadock Pratt, a Manhattan leather merchant. William Shakespeare, was born ...". But the editors at the Post had not rolled over after the lost liable case. If you are going to pay extra for a premium stock, you might as well buy


the stock itself and not the option. So they added an entire phrase, so there would be no chance of confusion; "I pledge allegence to the flag of the United States of America." In 1940, with World War once again looming, the Supreme Court ruled that even Jehova's Witnesses could be required to stand at attention and recite the pledge in school, which the Witnesses had argued violated their faith. All the witness for the prosecution admitted they had not gotten a good look at the suspect with the shotgun, but they were all Protestants, and were all fluent in English. In Boston, women eligible to vote even outnumbered eligible men by 10,000. And it was as President of the Pullman Cars Association that he was invited to a Presidential reception at the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo, New York, on the afternoon of September 6, 1901. He invested his profits in wool mills, cigar factories, hotels and theaters. His publishing ventures failed. Nobody else thought Harding stood a chance. His hair hung down his back and clustered about his face like a heavy snowfall. His Achilles in crime was the baritone Thomas Wansely, a tall and powerfully built black man too curious by half. They were only told what a whoring booze-hound Phillip Key was. The community, having been fed for weeks on the press reports of tramps, thieves and anarchists, were not happy to see them. "Thirty days hath September, April, June, and November; All the rest have thirty-one; Until we hear from Washington." A shopkeeper in Kokomo, Indiana preferred to protest in prose. And anyway, he didn't wear an iron mask. He has smoked pipe tobacco for many years, although workplace regulations at the North Pole have forced him to cut back to one or two pipes per day for the last 5 years. First he threw himself down a well in 1805. The term "repetition" leaps to mind. In late October 1936 the Republican National Committee sent checks for $5.00 to 400 black pastors in Maryland, along with a letter, which began, "Dear Brother," and then argued that the G.O.P. Of course, that was when high tech required floppy disks and your back up was a pencil and a yellow legal pad. But without a body they could not be forced to pay the double indemnity clause. The boxes were usually a foot to a foot and a-half long and a foot deep, but usually no more than six inches wide. His argument was inventive; John Boyd was not qualified to be governor because he was not an American citizen because he had not been born in America. She called her new community the Abbey of the Seven Rays. In addition, every Wig contractor had their mail contracts cancelled, unless they hired only Democrats (duplicated in Republican Tom Delay's 2000-2004 K Street Project). Wallace Hardison was not so certain, and in 1892 he sold out. By evening the Canadians still held their positions and the Americans retreated. Butler...I opened the bag of diamonds....Mr. At any other time she would have been a pariah, and expected to unoad her cargo outside the port, on McNab's Island. Gage was born in the southern New Hampshire village of Lebanon. Flesh and blood, metal and concrete were ripped apart. That bridge is still in use. Then he would drop a 35 pound, three and a-half foot long iron tamping rod into the hole to compact the charge. Twenty witnesses testified they had bought eels from Bartolomeo at his stand in Brockton on the day of the robbery, but they were all Italians who spoke only broken English, and the jury simply refused to believe them. Officially Powers had received 70,187 votes, making him second by 1,144 votes. (with one of our first citizens.) What measures will be taken by the Society in consequence of this heart rending event, R.T.B.S. But rather than the Democrats absorbing the Independents, in fact the Independents absorbed the Democratic Party. By then his invention had been passed on to future generations, who contiued to build fences around elephants. * You, see in the entertaiment industry, the money is all in the fence. * - 30 -


RUNNING AGAINST SOCIAL SECURITY I would say that Bertrand Snell is a shinning example of the "Peter Principle". And as the tide pulled the Vineland into the Gulf of Mexico, Wansely shared his discovery with first mate Charles Gibbs. * By Gibb's figuring the barrels together held today's equivalent of over one million dollars in untraceable cash. The press corps was further augmented by four Western Union telegraphers and two line men. So, Gibbs suggested, since they were already sharing in the crime, why not share the silver as well. For a few minutes it looked as if there would be a wholesale slaughter just for the sake of a theatrical effect. Neither did he have any idea how to help revive the national economy. Cooler heads prevailed and he was allowed to quietly resign from the charity. * In March of 1914, there were rumors that Daniel had finally died. And in Federal Court, it was Althea's lawyer, David Terry, who delayed and obfuscated. Yancey wanted secession not despite the destructive effects it would have on the South, but, it seemed, almost because of them. Once war broke out Jefferson Davis sent Yancey (above) to England to seek recognition. He asked him to leave government so he could secretly aid China in their war with the Japanese. The conservatives were unhappy with the new taxes levied to pay for the war. Grant's attack, isolation, and capture of Vicksburg, Mississippi. Frank Baum I must begin by pointing out that all good jokes have no prologue. "Two men" may indeed walk into a bar, and before they did, they had to be somewhere else, doing something else. Few knew at the time that Father Coughlin was one of the largest private holders of silver in the America. This made the Tin Woodman very unhappy, for he was always careful not to hurt any living creature; and as he walked along he wept several tears of sorrow and regret. Mencken noted, he "simply lacks the power to inflame the boobs." The party platform that Alf was going to have to stand on had been engineered by Chairman Bertrand and forty-four year old John Daniel Miller Hamilton (above), the "crinkly haired" "jut-jawed" G.O.P. They shot one poor fellow who talked back to them. The Fairs were history, France and the Champagne were broke. The price of gold skyrocketed. When Grant learned about the manipulations, he immediately ordered the U.S. Cobb signed the writ of mandamus on the spot and then ran for the exit; checkmate. * The spectators were so stunned they were frozen. And like a smoker who develops a cough, the deposits on the sea floor, as well as Greenland and Antarctic ice cores, recorded the increasing impact of burning fossil fuels on our planet's health. Proust's dismal ethoes is that it does not explain Professor Bond. Henri's toll was now eight dead - five at the police station and three at the restaurant. At his trial Henri was defiant and bombastic, until his attorney put Henri's mother on the witness list. To this point, Thomas' greatest claim to fame was that he had help spread the rumor that General William Tecumsah Sherman was crazy. To his surprise, Stanton simply said "no". There was a week of stunned silence from the White House, until the following Monday, August


12th, when Johnson tried another tact. He was found not guilty of trespass and released without bond. - and specific to the current fight, 56% supported the workers, against 41% who supported the Pooh-vernor. Rasmussen shamelessly insisted "Collectively the data suggest a fluid situation." Which means, I guess, that Governor Pooh is sinking. That name now applies, as a verb, to the redrawing of congressional district boundaries (Gerrymandering) to insure the election of friends of Governor Gerry. * Almost as old is the word "Bunko", meaning a fraud or a fraudulent spiel used by salesmen of bad or faked products. Then he served them more coffee, and when the ladies slipped their chains to escape to the toilet, the trees were bulldozed, and the construction proceeded. The railroad monopolies set the shipping rates and the silo rates and there was no appeal to their heartless bookkeeping. * Try and start a bank to break the railroad monopoly, and the state legislators would make it illegal. And what we remember is that for all its pain and horror, to its 600,000 dead on both sides, the Civil War gave birth to the America dream we share today. Can any of us honestly say we would have prefered an America in which John Crittenden had been succesful and the war had been avoided, all in the name of compromise? - 30 - WEDNESDAY: COXEY'S ARMY: PART THREE The March Gets Together DOES YOUR COW POINT NORTH? I am certain that some will think this story much a moo about nothing. They were greeted by a crowd of 10,000 people. The blood from the trunk spurted high as the body revolved into the basket. The editor of the Tombstone Epitaph would later note his calm demeanor, saying he was "...unperturbed whether...meeting with a friend or a foe." Bat Masterson described him as possessing a "... Van Buren had been born in the tiny village of Kinderhook, New York, a bastion of Dutch culture in a rising sea of Englishmen, making their man an ethnic minority. Nixon didn't yet have a way to meet his pledge of ending the war "with honor", so he continued the war, and he did not raise taxes. But when he finally did, flying the American flag while sailing out of France, he had at last justified his luck. What might have been cute in a 14 year old was now just creepy in a 17 year old. It seems he had gotten considerably more than half of the money from the diamond hoax. The cities' University of Sankoré began attracting world class astronomers and mathematicians and Islamic scholars. An obituary writer tried to explain his extraordinary career by listing his fields of endeavor. It gives a whole new meaning to the term "pasteurization". Few have ever denied that individually cows process a certain personal magnetism. Some families found their holiday dinners split between the two dates. And then they returned home for a hearty breakfast. *


JP Van Dyke suspected this, or most of it. Does any of this sound familar? But, back to our story... On June the ninth, 1936, Herbert addressed the Republican National Convention in the Public Auditorium in Cleveland, Ohio, and did his very best to rally the faithful to his cause. After this academic execution, Oliver's corpse was discarded into a pit and his head was raised upon a 20 foot wooden pole above the south side of Westminster Palace. It is a phrase you don't much hear anymore, in part because we are losing contact with the agony fire can bring. With a little luck I would have seen a dapper, middle aged man, six feet tall, about 180 pounds, wearing a dark brown double-breasted coat and matching trousers, a bow tie, a Masonic ring and a gold wristwatch, a pair of pearl-gray pinstriped spats and all set off by straw panama hat, tipped at a jaunty angle, stepping into a cab outside of Billy Haas' Chophouse, where he had just eaten dinner with friends. Andrew Sullivan (the Daily Dish and the Atlantic), whose initial position was sympathy for Walker, has turned....A few days ago, the question was: How long can the Democrats hold out? Increasingly, it's how long Walker can hold out." Worse yet for Pooh, it is quickly becoming evident that Winnie the Governor has stumbled over the limit of public support for his "my way or the highway" style. But the Post's columnist, Mr. They were followed by an actress on horseback, Ms. And as Gray had expected, the Republican base was so energized by the gerrymander, that their party was swept back into power that November with a 10,000 vote majority, recapturing seven of those redistricted Assembly seats. Hunt decided not to follow the trail blazed by Lewis and Clark. He did not drink to excess. Instead Harding swallowed and said, "No". He proceeded to pilfer $27,000 from the funds. The cost of this singular expedition was about ten thousand pounds..." * It took two weeks under military guard for the inexperienced Ulster men to bring in the crop of turnips, wheat and potatoes, valued by Boycott as worth about three hundred and fifty pounds. Who he was seems to have been mixed up in what is called "The Affair of the Poisons" which is a morality tale of a cute little love-sick tramp with the affinity for "inheritance powders", and her amoral boyfriend. Throw in the King's mistress for a little spice, and you have a recipe for what Alexis de Tocqueville called "L'Ancien Regime", and what in modern terms we would call a soap opera of the rich and infamous. In 1856 the Boyd family had moved to Nebraska territory and had become involved in business and local politics. Faced with a bruised and enraged Robertson, the Republicans caught his anger. Lilly caring for the new princess Victoria, heard a noise coming from the Queen's dressing room. However, Will did not appoint his nephew as a commander of the local militia, and it was the appointment he did not receive which Nathaniel took note of. But why had this young man traveled to America? Well, Nathaniel had recently married and his new in-laws had quickly realized he was a pretentious pompous fraud. And the attendant deflation destroyed what little credit remained. It just so happened that this bull artist finally met his china shop on a road in northern China, and that the hot head who pulled the trigger happened to have been a communist. It was only a few months later, in mid-1919, that he had registered his Old Colony Foreign Exchange" with city hall. By the beginning of August, The great Red Scare, which had begun with such a furor in January, was pretty much over. First, it was clear that the bumps on the top of the head were not denotative of anything going on inside the skull. The week before, on October 25, 1825, a warrant for Jereboam's arrest had been issued by the sheriff in Bowling Green. The study also noted that five or six were of


"questionable character". "After a few hours the road began to be rough, and the walking grew so difficult...The farms were not nearly so well cared for here as they were farther back. And the hundreds of workers who found work building Kansas City's future, smiled too. It was decided it was self evident the state was going to need them, and the measure was approved by a vote officially recorded as 31 Ayes, 0 nays and 18 "present but not voting". They were not buried by family or friends or even enemies. His sevents and admirers pickled the hero in rum, packed him into an iron coffin, and buried him in the old Saint Louis Cemetery, set aside for foreign protestants. Unfortunatly, three weeks after John Paul Jones was laid to rest, a mob decended on the Royal Palace of Tuileries, and captured the King and Queen. The very first sentence of the very first of the 90 essays sought to explain it all. He added a salute. * Well, it was called the Bellamy Salute, but he didn't invent it. The cavalrymen, well drunk by this time, decided the infantry were after their booze. And it turns out that this celebration of sociopathic behavior was invented by the French, a nation without humorous inclinations since Moliere slipped on a banana peel in 1673. Then there would be a week concentrating on cloth sales (60 European towns sold their wool only at the Fairs), followed by a week of leather sales, a week for spices, and a closing week of hard commodities, grains, salt and metals. Legends claim that Oliver's pole was blown down in a storm and Oliver's dome rolled into the hands of Mr. Grant's most easily defeated opponent was Lt. The court had decided that certifying election results was simply a clerical duty and not a matter of choice. In January of 1622, Richard's was finally released on the condition that he and she leave London for ever. I suspect that this time Jane's arrest was part of a trap. He had realized early that there was far more money to be made in railroad stock than in running railroads. * Between 1830 and 1855, when the nation quadrupled its miles of track, 125 railroad companies issued stock but never laid a single mile of railroad track. And that is why William Burke went up the stairs of the gallows all by himself in January of 1829. And 1920 proved that once again. - 30 NEXT WEDNESDAY: PASSION AND OTHER SINS Politics, Sex and Scandal in the 1880's. FRIDAY: BLIND LOVE Love and Murder Amongst the Crimminal Class in 18th Century England GETTING A HEAD I would call it the definitive way of dealing with a swelled head. In time the land atop John Paul Jones came to be occupied by a grocery, a laundry, an apartment house and their attendant sheds, toliets, cess pools and wells. And there he might have stayed had not, luckily, a lunatic shot American President William


McKinnely in September of 1901. That lunatic made Vice President Teddy Roosevelt, at 44, the younget man ever to take the oath as President of the United States. Briefly he tried selling his story via public speaking engagements, and displaying his rod. Daniel had so far made a career out of developing legal problems, so he decided that Phillip Key was the perfect man to escort Terresa to Washington social functions while Daniel was "relaxing" in Baltimore with Fanny White, and others. Friends tried to warn Daniel about Phillip's reputation, and in March of 1858 Daniel had a confrontation with Phillip concerning accusations that were already bubbling up about his intentions toward Terresa. Goodbye." Every operator up and down the line heard that message. Lyman and Milton endowed $300,000 for the publication of 12 volumes (90 essays) in defense of what they believed were the five fundamental tenets of the true faith; the total absolute accuracy of the bible, the divinity of Jesus, his death for humanities' sins, and his second coming, which was expected soon, perhaps in the lifetime of people then living. * However there were a few other points made in The Fundamentals which are not so widely talked about today, in particular a listing of the enemies of Christianity - including "...Romanism (Catholicism), socialism, modern philosophy, atheism...Mormonism, spiritualsim,...and Darwinism, which appeared to undermine the Bible's authority." Formed originally as a response to "modermism", the foundations of Fundamentalism remain primarily negative, insisting more upon what they are against, rather than what they seek to build. Then came Coxey in his carriage, ridding with his second wife and their infant child, "Legal Tender Coxey". It was an absurdly pompous threat on the face of it, since being arrested for violating the 60 year old ordinance would achieve the very object the ordinance was designed to discourage. Henceforth, they announced,  it was illegal to solicit funds without a license, even though no procedures had yet been written to qualify for such licenses. " History records that they were singing new words (written by Carl Browne) and set to the tune sung as Sherman's Army burned its way across Georgia. Then in 1845 Amos became Samuel F. The monograms said "MMC" because...he billed himself as Murray M. An old woman and her grandson produced sixteen pounds. "I picked you out of the mud." Browne immediately ordered the marchers to halt. But that is beside the point... * Maury Maverick later won election to Congress, where, during WWII, his honesty, intellect and energy convinced others to make him chairman of the "Small War Plants Committee", overseeing and coordinating the work of thousands of small factories contributing to the American war effort, seeking to avoid duplication of effort, shortages of raw materials and general waste. Althea began to scream for vengeance, and fell upon her husband's body. The poor executioner must have been shagged out from removing the first two heads. Everything he ate made him sick, but he refused to die. But he now announced that he was revoking his gift. Today, three years later, the old man is berating his friend because the silk hat was lost." The election of November 3, 1936 was the most lopsided since James Monroe ran unopposed in 1820. Reading the popular vote results did not seem to make anything clearer. Or it could be the summer of 1819. That year, the northern English midlands city of Manchester was well on its way to becoming "...the


first and greatest industrial city in the world." But, over the previous three short years the weavers, spinners and loom operators that made the city great, the hi-technicians of their day, had seen their wages drop by 2/3rds. Edward refused. Back down under, Edward disappeared into anonymity, and there he stayed, until the day after Christmas, celebrated as Boxing Day in England and Australia. On that day of celebration, Edward Jones, the Boy Jones, got drunk and fell off a bridge over the Mitchell River in Bairndale, Queensland (above). The only hiccup occurred when Daniel publicly forgave Terressa. After biting the officer several times (and one other adult victim) the rampaging squirrel made his escape. But barely had they passed out onto the Atlantic when Captain Thorn turned into Captain Bligh. Shortly thereafter a couple named Gray came back to their rented room at Logs Lodging to find some of the inventory stored under their bed. Then in 1854 he moved to another stage line this time in Valparaiso, Chile. - 30 SUNDAY: CHARACTER FLAW Father Coughlin and the Politics of Hatred POLITICAL SPEAK I wonder how many of you know, dear readers, that the word "Gobbledgook", being a nonsensical word or phrase designed to imply importance but in fact meaning nothing, has an actual birthday? The word was born on Sunday, May 21st, 1944, in the pages of "The New York Times Magazine". "Mr. As the hour of doomsday passed over them, Dorthy's back yard remained just another random void along the space time continuum. * Dorthy was observed crying. Against the Ruth's Yankees (above) they had nine wins against thirteen loses. He warned Robert that she was "a filthy, base woman...noted for her injury and immodesty." And Thomas may have been right, because even the lady's husband described Francis as "a stretched glove", not exactly a compliment. He was there to cover Harry Daugherty, because, as you have seen, Harry was always good for a quote, even if you had to spoon feed it to him. * Also present was George Harvey, who ran Harper publishing, and Republican Senators Wadsworth, Calder, Watson, McCormick and Lodge, Governor Smoot, political fixer Joe Grundy, and Lawyer Charles Hillers, counsel to the R.N.C., as well as his client, R.N.C. Evidently, Daniel assumed that Terresa could also be trusted. The now 500 man Army was swollen by supporters to 4,000, who were hoping, I suspect, to protect the marchers with their bodies, if necessary. A reporter for the New York Times placed a telephone call to his home on Fifth Avenue. But rather than replace these 1,200 miles of substandard rails already in use, the royal commission of 1845 decreed that four feet eight and one-half inches would be the "Standard Gauge" for Britain, and eventually most of the rest of the world. You see, for Dorthy, the end of the world was just the beginning. * Dorthy Martin, a fifty-four year old housewife, received notice on August 27, 1954 that the world was going to end. Load up your water gun, warm up your fart cushion and repeat after me; "Poison d'Avril, sucker!" Funny, huh? - 30 -


CBL- Another false computer promise A few days ago I posted a very nice article on a computer work by CBL computers in Lafayette. But the voters did not care what he thought. Everybody who got the joke was supposed to read these announcements and just laugh, not pack. "Cousin Ed" as Barrow was called, now spent nearly half a million dollars of Col Rupperts beer money buying up every player of talent still on the Red Sox roster, dismatling the Boston team, while building around Babe Ruth a dynasty that would dominate baseball for the next twenty years, winning 14 pennants and 10 World Series, before Barrow retired in 1945. The town's northern land shoulder -Haines Bluff - was protected by the 200 mile wide and 50 mile thick swamp of the Yazoo river delta to its north. He was rescued and after six years of enforced service was finally set free in the isolated port of Perth (above),  on the lonely west coast of  Australia. Those transcripts, kept in the Truman Library, were released in 1983, two years after Tommy's death, at 80 years of age from a pulmonary blood clot. However, shortly thereafter Senator Sharon offered her $7,500 in cash if she would sign a paper using the name "Miss Hill". Industrialist Henry Ford proclaimed that the Great Depression had been caused by "an era of laziness", and President Hoover, from his government subsidized home three and ½ blocks south of the Little Green House, seemed to agree. Yancey publically opposed the compromises of 1850, which sought to establish a balance between slave states and "free" states within the Union. The mob forced one of them against a stone wall...and threw his horse violently to the ground. Over four years - from 1949 to 1950 - the Chotiner brothers defended 249 mob clients, ranging from local bookmakers to New Orleans mobster Carlos Marcello and L.A.'s mob boss Mickey Cohen. The demand for demand needed to be great enough to absorb the vagaries of a business cycle that was collapsing for want of demand. Bob and Blaine and Garfield's two sons helped the President to his feet, and escorted him up stairs, away from the lookey-loos. Angry, James started singing to anybody who would listen that Hamilton had given him inside information on Government bond sales. In 1820 the tall, thin Scotsman in a tight uniform, was welcomed home by the Lord Mayor of London, as a hero. The District of Columbia in 1930 had a population of 607,000 people, and, even many of them out of work. The more you know the less you know, you know. * The first thing astronomers realized they did not know was why two of those three cold blobs of rock and ice circling far out from the Sun- Neptune and Uranus - were so darn massive, too massive to have been formed so far out at the edge of the spinning disc that eventually became the solar system. But the unpleasant truth was and is, that a compromise is not a solution. The ancient traders, who bought hides from butchers, invented the 'futures market' by buying and selling the hides of cattle that had not yet been born. Chairman of General Electric.

He was followed and mocked whenever he left his farm. Army was set to work clearing the trace to 8 feet wide and removing all tree stumps above 16 inches tall, so "The Trace" could be used by high riding Conestoga wagons. One told a local newspaper, "He treated his cattle better than he did us." The server would have issued even more eviction notices, but a crowd of women began to throw mud and manure and the agent and his police escort had to retreat into the Boycott home. Jack was shot three times just behind his left ear. Through the entire decade of the 1920's the


economy grew at 7% per year, while unemployment remained between just three and four percent. Mellon moved to quickly retire much of America's World War One debt, cutting it by $10 billion. The imitative working masses followed, and were transported at 35 cents a head by excursion boats from the Manhattan docks or the newly electrified rail lines from Brooklyn, (or "Breukelen" in the original Dutch). * In the spring of 1884, James Lafferty spent $65,000 to build a hotel on the empty stretch of sand known as Coney Island, just across Surf Avenue from the boat pier and the railroad terminals. He had been a writer for the Post, until Ponzi had hired him as a Press Agent. However the same publication hastened to point out, "He is not a stayer...his brilliant work, genial temperament and brilliant wit made him the "spoiled child" of many a social circle...with his extraordinary talents and accomplishments he might have been great; but at least he always remained dear.". They were still residents in 1867 when Nebraska had been admitted to the union over President Johnson's objection.

He had worked in the gold mines of North Carolina and Georgia and Mississippi. He had worked as housepanter, a cartoonist and a snale oil salesman, and now he was a labor organizer. The similarity between the original sport (outlawed in England in 1835) and the blackmail sting performed on Hamilton is that the dog could be counted on to grab the badger every time, even though the pooch was never allowed to actually eat the badger. And the new owners were willing to switch to a more iconic business model. * The Elephant Hotel was converted into a bordello. It was a joke, of course, an inside multi-layered joke - a joke about a joke about a joke.

Only his compatriots in crime were convicted. Harrison, then John Perry, the self confessed murderer, certainly had. Bat, as we now know, was on the floor of the gambling parlor. Then they did a little math and learned why. To have covered all the money invested in the "Old Colony", the company would have had to buy at least 160 million international postal reply coupons. Like Dick Cheney, Stanton was a Prima Donna who displayed a self indulgent affection for conspiracies, and practiced such hyperbole that "At certain crises...doubts of his sanity were widespread..."(p 286 - "Lincolns War Cabinet" Hendrick). He had already done his part. *


Bob left government service after that and went back into private industry, as a lobbyist for the railroads. Although the patient has a jolly demeanor, he expresses profound unhappiness. And I will begin with the observations of an amateur military genius. But what the sub-prime mortgage fiasco has proven, and the dot-com bubble proved before that, and the Savings & Loan debacle proved before that, is that without regulation there can be no trust.

And once they were all well intoxicated, Gibbs told them of the cargo of silver, and confessed that last night he had thrown Captain Thornby overboard. "I first noticed the wound," wrote the good doctor, "before I alighted from my carriage, the pulsations of the brain being very distinct." The doctor recorded that his patient had a pulse of 60, was breathing regularly and his pupils were reactive. The old fool dropped dead so fast that Neagle's second shot, fired immediately after the first, only clipped Terry's ear as he went to to the floor. Right on cue, while the smoke still hung in the air, and the witnesses' ears were still ringing, Althea reentered the dinning room. After the Civil War he opposed Reconstruction. Boy, does that ever sound familar! However, it appears that most Americans saw all of this Republican effort in the same light as that expressed by the voter,  who said that Roosevelt was "the first man in the White House to understand that my boss is a son-of-a-b-tch" In 1936 the Democrats came out swinging, inc;uding FDR, as illustrated in a speech he delivered in Boston, and which he wrote himself. "In the summer of 1933 a nice old gentleman fell off a pier. But before them all was Gregor McGregor, a Scotsman who managed to not only sell what he did not own, but he sold what did not even exist. Everybody in England knew who Gregor McGregor (above) was. The patient feels annoyed and worried when he is told many people do not believe he exists, and I feel this may develop into a serious identity crisis if not dealt with. He was just the first.

It is hard to find a more able defense of the Victorian ideal of the nobility of wealth and the original sin of women, than that argued by these two Federal judges. I'm not saying that Althea was justified in the way she expressed her anger with the courts, but I am saying that she was nuts already, and this lecture did not help her pathology. But, as we all know, some men are drawn to crazy women. Marshal Neagle (above) was convinced she used her body to shield her removal of David's bowie knife. Selover, who actually considered himself a friend of Gould's.

We

Luckily, the now destitute Jacob was matched with a compassionate small businesswoman named Julia Elena Thomas, who had a spare room and a bed. Some patients may even experience weight loss, hair loss and a skin rash...These symptoms can last for over three months, and sometimes as long as six months. * "We know from the private journals kept by its members, that on the 13th and 14th of August of 1805 Captain Lewis and some of the men from the expedition 'partied' with some Shoshone women. In what may have been the first time a practical joke qualified as a war crime, on April 1, 1915 a French pilot buzzed the German trenches and dropped a huge bomb, which bounced. Four years later the citizens of Venice awoke on April 1, to discover their sidewalks littered with cow manure, the "gag" of a visiting Englishman, Horace de Vere Cole, with too much time on his hands and too much money in his pockets. Faced with empty coffers and pews, Father Coughlin used his connections with Mrs. He carried his affinity for inflexible convictions into every aspect of his life he was an absolutest in all things.

It was the speculators who drove Abraham Lincoln's father off his farm in Kentucky, and again off his farm in Indiana and eventually drove him to Illinois, where Abraham gave up farming entirely. * As another source writing about this unromantic American frontier points out, "As a consequence of monopolistic tactics and official fraud, northern Alabama lands were overwhelmingly engrossed by absentee speculators and wealthy settler elites." The leveling process of the American frontier was largely a myth, created by the wealthy in a natural effort to romanticize their past.

When other rocks on the sea floor were identified as coming from the same areas on land, the professor's suspicions were Horse Farms For Sale Memphis TN confirmed, and with it a way to measure climate change. Does any of this sound familiar? One wag put it to verse; "Mellon pulled the whistle, Hoover rang the bell, Wall Street gave the signal, And the country went to hell."

The Republicans made certain the Crittenden Compromise was never officially considered by the entire Senate, even though they never offered an alternative. The vandals had been identified. And at about the same time the six year long depression came to an end. And dribble glasses are not only not practical they are also not funny - especially on "April Fools Day", when every glass is a dribble glass and every shoe is a potential combustion chamber. But complexity was always hidden just beneath the hide. But a new player had entered the arena. His name was Joseph Allen, and he was the Massachusetts Bank Commissioner. At least Gregor McGregor got his name on a monument outside of Caracas. Still, I have to agree with Will Rogers, who once said, "They may call me a 'rube' and a 'hick, but I'd a lot rather be the man who bought the Brooklyn Bridge than the man who sold it." - 30 SUNDAY: DRAMA QUEENS Staging A Political Scene COXEY'S ARMY: PART ONE  "You people with hearts," he said, "have something to guide you, and need never do wrong; but I have no heart, and so I must be very careful." - The Tin Woodsman. 1900.

But it was also the defining moment of Nathaniel Bacon's performance. Every human chosen to be saved from the coming devastation must be waiting in Dorthy's apartment at the appointed hour to be transported to the Oak Park spaceport. Some time near the mid summer solstice around three thousand eight hundred fifty years ago, some fifty or sixty Unetice raiders were attacked on the banks of the Tollense. MacArthur did this on his own. Daniel showed the note to a friend, George Wooldridge, who then watched the philandering husband sob with his head in his hands. On Saturday night, February 26th, Daniel confronted Terressa in her bedroom (they had separate sleeping arraignments, on different floors), and he forced her to write her confession in her own hand. Copper and tin had to be heated to 1,700 degrees Fahrenheit before they would form bronze, and that takes a lot of dry wood, and a knowledge of ceramics. The sheriff of Lancaster County (a Democrat), surrounded by deputies (more Democrats), smashed down the locked doors of the legislative chamber, charged to the front of the room and forcefully served the writ upon Speaker Elder. He shouted from the floor, "Gentlemen of the Senate, I have been by force excluded from the position to which the people of this state elected me." But at this point the acting-President pro tempore, Democratic Senator Alonzo Smith, ordered the doorkeeper, Frank Pritchett, to remove the Lt.

Cyril Connolly As late as October 3, 1881, Senator Sharon was still referring in his notes to Althea as "My Dear Wife". Jacob Coxey did not smoke. But the idea that these cow hides might be hiding some kind of mystical, new-age ferris sensitivity seemed, until recently, to be an oxymoron. But Sharp's allies had responded quickly by claiming that the dead child had been born with black skin, and thus could not be the child of a white politician.

His third shot hit the tree. His ego could not abide the insult. Allen.grew suspicious. Besides owning a large chunk of Erie stock of course, Jacob had recently bought several thousand 'options', pledging to buy even more. But a touch of reality was supplied by the supporting players. But because of the large number of people about he had left again, unseen. Two marchers died from exposure to the harsh weather, fifteen others came down with pneumonia, twenty with the flu. Still, Stella was counseled to keep quiet. This meant that merchants could short change their customers with the simple application of a file. Conclusions: Physicians, when presented with aerial sleigh-borne present-deliverers exhibiting more than a few of these symptoms, should seriously consider ASBPDS as their differential diagnosis. There were parades, dinners, banquets and lots of drinking, and on the fourth day the Pharaoh had to "run" a course and shoot arrows to prove he was still fit enough to rule.

And either possibility is not a compliment for the denizens of Nebraska. * Even before Nebraska was admitted to the union, on January 7, 1859, a fracas of fisticuffs fractured the Nebraska territorial legislature, between those who lived north and those who lived south of the Platte River.

But was that, asked Baker, a reason to destroy the union of states? "I say, yes," blurted out Benjamin. Philip destroyed the Fairs by removing and not enforcing the regulations that defined the market, and piling on taxes not tied to their profits. America did not have to be settled in this fashion. The conflict between those two desires could get very nasty.In 1742 an angry mob whipped one John Samuel through the streets of Edinburgh after he was caught transporting the corpse of a young girl. Even more improbable to modern ears, this smallest state west of the Allegheny mountains was a crucial "battleground" state, oscillating like a bell clapper, clanging first Republican and then ringing Democratic, six times between 1876 and 1888, swinging each time at the whim of some 6,000 fickle independent voters. * Things came to a head over the winter of 1885 when the dynamic Democratic Governor Isaac Gray (above), seeking a lasting majority for his adopted party, jammed through a gerrymander redistricting of state legislative offices, by re-designing ten traditionally Republican state Assembly seats so they would elect Democrats instead.

SUNDAY: WHEEL MAN The Price of Technology THE LITTLE GREEN HOUSE ON K STREET PART FIVE I guess that houses are like people, in that if they remain standing long enough they can become all things. First the little house on K street was a home and then it was a bordello and a bar, and then it sat empty for a few years. 1892 *************************************************************** James hired his youngest brother, Tom (above), as cashier and bookkeeper at the "Climax" in the early 1890's.

Also put the story in a larger context - your example is but one story among many. On average about 25% of all power failures nationwide (about one in four) are inspired by suicidal squirrels. He suffered a concussion and a broken nose amongst other injuries when yet another suicidal squirrel literally leapt into the spinning spokes of his bicycle. The proof cannot be made." Senator Benjamin (above) now thought he had his Northern foe pinned. An hour later Stanton arrived and was handed the key. And they must have been very confused. The guest-of-dishonor was stretched naked on a butcher block table. He had brought the man from his post at the Chickasaw nation, some 100 miles south-south east of Fort Pickering. B. It would have been depressing. Lessup's daughters bitterly demanded Jay repay them for their father's investment, and Jay countered with an offer of a payment of $10,000 a year for six years. It was an Irishwoman named Doucherty. And they succeeded. Still, even with the Lyman's piety, it took seven dry wells before Lyman and Harding produced their first gusher in Santa Clarita, California. He put his healthy young country in the same house, and for a while in the same bed, with this parent who was already yielding to the collectivist cancer. And although they never paid the filing fee (and their case was never on the docket) the founders, whoever they or he was, kept the joke going by arguing with their non-existent critics that they had as much right to gather together as "any other moral and benevolent societies in existence". All the violence had been perpetrated by the representatives of law and order. John Lees, who had served at the Battle of Waterloo, and had received two saber head wounds at the demonstration on St. First, he is one of the men who brought you the Great Depression; second, he is the man who invented "trickle down economics", which may yet bring you the next depression; third, his name has appeared on more dollar bills than anyone, with the possible exception of Alexander Hamilton; and fourth, his obsession with money was so great that its poison has leached into our own time, for Andrew William Mellon is the 'prater profectio' of the "vast right wing conspiracy." Suffice it to say that if Freud had ever met Andrew Mellon, psychiatry would be a recognized science today. Andew was lucky enough to be born in Pittsburg during the latter half of the ninteenth century "hell with the lid off" - and to a Scrooge-like father who disapproved of those with..."festive dispositions". And though his estate had been hurt by the massive tax settlement, and even though Andrew had spent the last years of his life giving away much of the wealth he had accumulated, Andrew still held so much money that, in 2007 (seventy years later!) the various trusts that Andrew created saw that his grandson,...

It also seems an inefficient use of resources, what with years of housing, feeding and clothing so many sperm receptacles when, in the end, only one counted. Allow me to explain... * On the day President Abraham Lincoln died, his eldest son, the late Robert Todd Lincoln, (above, called Bob by his father) had just gotten back from the Confederate surrender at Appomattox Court House. At about 1:40 p.m. But she was never described as a great beauty. His exit had been achieved by nonviolence. The cavernous Ben Springer's Theatre "The Lady Gray Comique" (com-e-cue), at the corner of Front and Bridge Street (modern day 2nd Avenue), was divided between a bar and gambling parlor in front and a variety theatre in the back. * In July of 1878 the Comique featured an entire vaudeville show headlined by "...that unequalled and splendidly matched team of Eddie Foy and Jimmie Thompson."Eddie Foy had been dancing and clowning in Chicago bars to feed his family since he was six. government stopped issuing silver coins. He just called it something else, so the Republicans would swallow the common sense of it without chocking on their own bile. Still, it must be counted against Amos that while he never owned slaves, he did nothing to encourage slavery's demise, when he had the chance to. And always will be. He wrote Hamilton, "You have deprived me of every thing that's near and dear to me. He lost that job in 1874 for embezzling county funds, which he probably used to finance his education in gambling. * Moving on to Dodge City along with the railroads, Wyatt was hired again as a police officer. The archaeologists are going back to the banks of the Tollense, because they think there is more to learn, more skeletons to be uncovered. This was about all that Jacob shared about the source of the ore in his candle box, before he died of pneumonia in Julia's spare bed, on October 25, 1891.The ore in Jacob's box brought $4,800 from the assay office - a lot of money in those days. And his career in politics thus saved him from being butchered by Mexican troops under General Santa Ana. And that was probably the only reason none of freshly disenfranchised voters in the room started shooting. 30 FRIDAY: INTO THE WOODS Get Ready For A Big Surprise 1920 - THE YEAR WITHOUT A REVOLUTION I don't believe that Ed Barrow (above) was capable of playing the idiot. And that, surprisingly, does come from the head end. It seems important.

That amount was exactly the yearly income of an appeals court justice. *


But Roosevelt was already positioning himself for a possible run for the White House and he could not afford to be connected to the Tammany Hall machine in the public's mind.

With the feds and reformers sniffing around, Judge Crater felt he could not decide the cases the way Diamond wanted them decided, not without drawing attention and raising suspicions. * That evening, when Connie told Diamond of Judge Crater's attempt at a payoff, Jack could not afford to let the cases drop, not with the Schultz mob sniffing at his heels. Parnell called on the crowd to shun any who took over the property of an evicted tenant. And behind him came the "army", all 86 of them on foot or bicycle. But none of that reality stopped the fight from becoming the most famous twenty seconds in the American West. * Wyatt remained a professional gambler all his life and died in Los Angeles of a chronic bladder infection at the age of 80 years, in January of 1929. An entire Innuit village of 22 families on the Dartmourth shore was drowned by the wave. * Windows were shattered 10 miles away. But then he had been brought to trial by himself for a Christmas Eve 1919 attempted robbery in Bridgewater, Massachusetts. This was a cross between Victoria's Diamond Jubilee and the carnival in Rio. The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands paid him $600,000. But Drummond for one would listen to no such warnings. But the role of the missed opportunity for the application of simple common sense in John Birch's death did not stop candy-king Robert Welch from building an elaborate conspiracy theory around Birch's death; a virtual black hole of paranoia and invective that eventually sucked into it everything Welch came in contact with, including the Republican Party, the Republican President and former five star general and war hero Dwight David Eisenhower -whom Welch accused of being a "conscious, dedicated agent of the Communist Conspiracy" - tooth decay and, believe it or not, the entire state of Alaska. I'm not kidding about the Alaska thing. His family had immigrated to America when he was 14. It is one of those nasty bits of reality this new generation of American pseudo-politicians seem not to have been taught in their right wing madrases, such as the high school aged Pooh's American Legion's Badger Boy's State Program, which paid for his trip to the Boy's Nation in Washington, D.C. But just like Caesar, Pooh seems intent upon ignoring warnings and committing political suicide. His namesake may have paid the price for that excess of zeal. For that was exactly what was being created on the American frontier. Then because of the flaying about looking for the thing, you lose your train of throught.

It may seem pointless to be divided by a stream famously described as "too thick to drink, and too thin to plow", a river which, in the late summer, resembles more plain than flood plain, but politics is rarely about reality and doubly so in Nebraska, where reality is so flat and peppered with cow poo. L. I learned this lesson from John Paul Jones, the pugnatious and aggressive Scotsman who founded the American Navy. John Paul had the first requirment for greatness; luck.

Hampton was thus dispatched to command troops on Lake Champlain. From day one things did not look promising for the campaign, and then at the last second Secretary Armstrong decided too dump everything into Wilkerson's lap, and head back to Washington.

But very little of that fortune went to Henry, in part because Henry sold the mine after a few years (and eventually died broke), but mostly because of something called "highgrading"."Freighters would line up at the mine with wagons to transport the gold ore (to the crushers and smelters). And when Daniel was elected to the U.S. The spectators were so stunned they were frozen. Senator William Sharon's adopted son from his marraige with his fiirst wife, Frederick Newlander, continued to fight his father's and Althea's divorce settlement in the California courts, delaying and obfuscating, But Frederick also launched a new front in Federal court, which he had access to because the estate Althea was now laying claim to, was spread over two states. Back in the United States, in 1852, Daniel met his legal lady fair, his personal Alice Alquist from "Gaslight", MissTerresa Da Ponte Bagiolo, now Mrs. And while the process was argued behind the closed doors of the Senate, a compromise (of sorts) was reached. On Saturday, May 16, 1868 the Senate took their first vote on an article of impeachment. Gould that he landed on his feet." Overnight, Abin Selover became the most popular man in New York City. Just about everybody who knew Thomas figured his death was just a happy accident; but not everybody. Sir Walter (above) fumed while Francis Howard's marriage was annulled just a week after Thomas had died. Because no matter what you have misplaced, the cost of finding it is always double. Patience was in short supply. The US Navy had begun a canal (above) that might eventually cut off the river bend just above Vicksburg by joining the Walnut and Roundaway Bayous, before reconnecting with the river below Vicksburg at the tiny hamlet of New Carthage. And almost the first thing George peered at was Mars, where he found...no canals. He said the squirrel walked out


along a power line and then jumped to a transformer. If you want to see the Diamond Mountain that has no diamonds, find Diamond Wash Draw, in Moffat County, Coloardo, about one mile south of the Wyoming state line and a quarter mile east of the Utah state border. From Monday October 8th through Saturday the 13th , 1660 (on the old Julian calendar), the twelve were each subjected to what contemporary witness William Harrison described as "The greatest and most grievous punishment used in England....drawing from the prison to the place of execution upon an hurdle or sled, where they are hanged till they be half dead, and then taken down...". Since everybody was now out of bullets the gun fight was over, and the tally was seven rounds fired, one antagonists wounded, one innocent bystander killed and two more noncombatants injured - a typical gunfight. Oddly, that same year saw the first use of the word as a second person perfect adjective, when Winston Churchill was quoted as saying, "Hitler seems a little squirrelly to me." The problem is that the small rodents are ubiquitous and as such we assume we know them. But it helped to achieve the impossible. The New Deal became "The Raw Deal". Weary of the dialog, Daugherty responded off handedly, "Make it 2:11," grabbed his bags and headed out to catch the train back to Ohio. * The reporter turned that conversation into this quote, which he stuck into Daugherty's mouth; "I don't expect Senator Harding to be nominated on the first, second or third ballot, but I think we can well afford to take chances that about eleven minutes after 2 o'clock on Friday morning at the convention, when fifteen or twenty men, somewhat weary, are sitting around a table, some one of them will say, "Who will we nominate?" At that decisive time the friends of Senator Harding can suggest him, and can afford to abide by the result." * And amazingly, that is almost exactly how it really happened. But the Scarecrow seized the oil-can from Dorothy's basket and oiled the Woodman's jaws, so that after a few moments he could talk as well as before." On Sunday, April the 22nd , the Philadelphia recruits which the Army had been waiting for, arrived in Hagerstown. Again under Mr. There, with a nor'easter brewing in the gathering darkness, the four men struggled to lower a skiff and fill it with their burdensome barrels of silver. They lingered into 1940, when the DuPont family finally pulled their funding, and the group then quietly died. And it would now be illegal for there to be any public assembly on public property without a license. (Sound familiar?) Adams had permitted the rape of an American servant girl by the Russian Czar (a complete fabrication). But the conservative wing of the GOP charged that "Ike"was a Republican In Name Only, and his administration was nothing better than a "little New Deal" administration. It seemed that with time, the Republicans managed to forget the lesson Alf had sacrificed himself to teach them. - 30 THERE'S A WAR ON I find it instructive that the citizens of Halifax, Nova Scotia (above) have never obsessed over how the disaster of December 6th, 1917 could have happened to them. Certainly all these threads came together in Father Coughlin, but clearly they were aleady present in Charles and much of upper class Detroit of the 1920's.By 1930 Father Coughlin's audience numbered over 40 million, and it was said you could listen to "The Fighting Priest" and his entire "Golden Hour of the Little Flower"


through open windows as you walked down any residential street in America on a Sunday afternoon. F. The maid, of course had already cleaned it up. He added an English bottle, stronger than the French ones, to restrain the 90 pounds of pressure per square inch generated by all that carbon dioxide farted out by the yeast. Roosevelt reminded the press that Thanksgiving was still not an official holiday, and that each year the President picked the date. The staff assumed the rodents were after the sweet nectary of these plants, as they would ignore roses or other non-nectar flowers. And they might have made it there sooner if Philip IV had just stuck to the rules, and gotten drunk on the vino, instead of the bubbles. She began to loudly denounce witnesses who offended her - in open court. Iman Elf, M.D. On January 2, 1997, Mr. What was needed was what Roosevelt called "priming the pump", but such ideas were anathama to Mellon's economic thinking, and anatham to Republicans today. Finally, in February of 1932, with Hoover looking for some way to get the disgraced economic mastermind out of the public eye before the November elections, Andrew agreed to step down from Treasury, and accept the post of Ambassador to England. He lashed his ship to an English warship and fought it out until both ships were sinking. First he announced that should he be out of the territory for any reason, then his old comrade William Clark (who Jefferson and made the Indian Agent) would serve as acting Governor. He won the unquestioned backing of President Jefferson after he betrayed Burr, making Jefferson just about Wilkerson's only superior he did not betray. Eventually she also began to carry a pistol in her hand bag. In a perfect bit of historical staging, the Army's headquarters for the night were in the town's opera house (below), one of the few buildings not damaged by a tornado which had struck Frostburg the year before.After listening to everybody's version of what had happened on the road, Coxey stood on a box on the stage (he was not a tall man), and called for a vote. All he got was a burned finger. At the War Office (above), Stanton read both notes, and asked, "Do you wish me to vacate the office at once?" Magnanimously, the old man answered, "Act at your pleasure." Stanton insisted on first making a copy of the letter. While Thomas dumbly waited, and a clerk laboriously wrote out an exact copy of the order, Stanton arranged his thoughts and morphed into a petulant two-year old. At a press conference Director J. But it also provided a sense of excitement for those with a rebellious spirit. There was bitterness in that description, since Jackson and Amos were intent upon dismantling the Bank of the United States and firing its president, who happened to be Mr. The difference in any individual policy was small, but after 15 years the amount impounded while the courtroom wrangling continued was up to $10 million. Of the 100 skeletons uncovered along the river so far, almost all are young male adults (draft age), with many carrying injuries inflicted shortly before death; broken faces, damaged skulls, an arrow head embedded in an arm bone, a thigh bone fracture which mimics that still commonly suffered by horseback riders. He gambled on cards, horse races and he was also, of course a land speculator. At some point in the conversation Connie must have told Diamond about Crater's plans to have dinner at the Chop House that night. What was needed now, explained hero McGregor, were settlers not afraid of hard work and sacrifice, and, of course, a few patriotic investors willing to fund another expansion of the profitable British Empire. McGregor secured his "in" with English social circles when in 1821 he named the very proper Major William John Richardson as his legate. In May of 1972, when the "Plumbers" were arrested planting "bugs" inside the Democratic Party National Headquarters in the Watergate complex, Murray Chotiner had an office directly above them. * As the crises grew and began to engulf Richard Nixon's Presidency, on Thursday, January 24, 1974,


Murray's Choitner's car collided with a truck in suburban Washington, D.C. Many of the power players from Tammany Hall were her best clients. Amos had thus created the "Spoils System". "They shall not slander me!" she shouted. They were poor people. It was the Hays' Commission that turned Rhett Butler's exit line as he walked out on Scarlet O'Hara into a major social crises, even though the line appeared in one of the most widely read books in America, "Gone With the Wind". Thus the will of the successful was God's will. In 1954 a 20 year study of 40,000 smoking English doctors was published, which confirmed that relationship. Twelve hundred people. And in any case, the Auger was not the guy, I don't think. But if you are of a novel mind set you might ask yourself a few questions.Why would the King of France keep someone locked up in one prison after another -for decades? Why not just kill him and get it over with? And what secret could be so big that the prisoner was required to wear a mask at all times in front of strangers? What secret could be kept secure by ordering a prisoner to never speak to anyone, not even with his jailers? Could such a convoluted plan even hope to work? James Bond villains have simpler plans than that. If you ask me this story is mostly a fantasy invented by Alexande Dumas. To offset this fluctuation Hare and Burke simply increased production. But the disabilities of various head wound survivors was proof that different sections of the brain did perform different functions. And third, the old adage that medicine is the search for profit after death, was confirmed when in 1866, Dr. And just as the telegraph was being pushed to extinction by the telephone, the lucky "OK" was given yet another new boost on May 5, 1961. And worse, millions dared not invest, thus hurting the nation as a whole. * Consider the very real and profitable Norwich and Worchester Railroad in Massachusetts, whose largest stockholders signed a secret agreement to sell their Norwich stock only to each other. But the pull of the Palace was strong, and Edward somehow managed to return to England, where he was arrested for theft in 1856. In 1860 one of his brothers, who had a good job in Melbourne, Australia (above), invited Edward to live with him. Nash was a valuable member of the unit, and the rumor was that she had amassed a tidy little nest egg, too. Daugherty said nothing, so the reporter suggested further that Daugherty must be expecting the managers to collapse about 2:00 A.M. And the humans stumbled upon this udderly amazing fact; cows got magnetism. He is mostly forgotten today in part because, for the next one hundred years, his sins became the Democratic Party's sins. Mr.Pyle's genius was his discovery that the only difference between soaps was advertising. But that year, Eddie managed to lead a lap. And, strangest of all, there was Aaron Watkins of Indiana, running for President on the Prohibition Party ticket, in this the first year of national prohibition. Harding and Coolidge won the Bay State by 40 points, 681,000 Republican votes to 277,000 Democratic votes. He escaped, he said, when his master died. It was signed, Nathanial Bacon, General, "By the Consent of ye People", and was made without any of ye people present. And by mid20th century they came to understand that the multi-billion dollar petrochemcial industry depended upon a detailed understanding of the anceint pre-historic, pre-biblical, fossilzed shells of extinct microscopic creatures found in drilling cores. What is amazing is that with this much at stake, Clement convinced the Big Six not to deny the dangers of smoking. Then, since no one was allowed to wear guns while in town, the cowboys buckled on their gun belts and mounted up. The nuts and bolts packed around the explosive, shrapnel intended to kill 150 deputies, instead lacerated Auguste's neck and chest. Charles II back in London would later observe, "That old fool (Berekely) has put to death more people in that naked country than I did here for the murder of my father." A year later the final curtain dropped on William Berekeky. Better telescopes, including one in earth orbit, showed it to have less than two tenths of 1% of the mass of the Earth, and to be only about


half the size of our moon. It needed new purposes. Sarah championed turkey because her middle class homemakers were on budgets, and the randy, strutting bird brains cost less than half per pound what a chicken might. But the real Turkey revolution came in 1934, when the United States Department of Agriculture discovered the key to making turkeys palatable; artificial insemination. But what finally destroyed Father Coughlin was his support for "The Christian Front".  Remember, Caesar is the mold. He rarely bathed, and spent his time reading and rereading scrap papers he bought for a penny. Evidently, being known as the best did not interest him. And in 1908 George opened the lens cap on his new 60" reflector telescope in his new observatory atop California's 5,700 foot high Mount Wilson. It was not a surprise. He married and produced at least one son and a daughter. * But of the two remaining masterminds, John and Mrs Johnson, who were last heard of escaping with today's equivalent of $800,000 in cash, nothing more was ever heard. Everybody from Land's End to Inverness was absolutely gobsmacked. Poyais was a gift from George Frederic Augustus I, King of the Miskito Sambu tribe, who gave their name to the Mosquito Coast of Central America. It was 12,000 cold, hungry and disorganized Americans attacking a few thousand Canadian militia. He sent a telegram ahead to Lathop, to notify the railroad agent there that there might be trouble in the morning. And like a snake, Ramses III lashed out from his death bed against those who had stepped upon him. * In three scandalised trials conducted after Ramses III's death, twenty-seven men and six women were convicted of treason, including her boy, Pentaweret. But if anybody thought the restoration of the monarchy was going to return a certain stability to Britain, they were about to suffer a very rude awakening.Three months later, on Thursday, August 16th of that year, the estate manager for a wealthy Calvinist merchant left his home in Chipping Camden, intending to walk the two miles to the village of Charingworth.

Percival had a nervous breakdown. But it was Francis who laid out in the magazine, instructions for the "salute too far".; "...At the words, "to my Flag," the right hand is extended gracefully, palm upward, toward the Flag, and remains in this gesture till the end of the affirmation."

God bless us, every one.  - 30 -SUNDAY: WHO ARE THESE GUYS!?! COXEY'S ARMY: PART SIX I would say that it is a dangerously romantic concept, this idea that government can be petitioned directly by its citizens. And that makes the world much simpler. * For the first two million years of human evolution the limit to language was the sum of the speed of sound divided by the speed of walking, divided by the number, width and depth of rivers and oceans, and the height of mountains and width of deserts separating you from the persons you wished to speak to. Alas, it was a like sending the Little Dutch Boy to stop a forest fire. To achieve that task


Gray had literally locked the doors, preventing Democrats from bolting the building and thus denying a quorum to the Republican majority. According to Will Ector, a school district spokesman, the first victim was "...trying to get it off and another parent was trying to assist...one was nipped on the fingertip and scratched on the arm and the other was bitten on the arm." The errant rodent nibbler then "did a loop around the (blood soaked) classroom and ran out the door", where he encountered his third victim, an innocent 11 year old girl, whom he immediately bit on the arm. But after only one year he smelled the impending scandals and got out. "We...say, help, or we and our loved ones must perish...

The missive arrived at Dorthy's home at 847 West School Street in the north side of Chicago in the Lake View neighborhood, not by United States Postal Service - something with a return address or a postal stamp to indicate the point it entered our world - but via the mystical and untraceable communication mode of "automatic writing", "...the process, or product, of writing material that does not come from the conscious thoughts of the writer." * The notice sent to Dorthy explained that before dawn on Wednesday, December 21st, 1954 the sea would rise up and consume England, France and the underpants of everybody in Chicago. Thus a gauge is a standard of measurement, or a tool used to measure. They taunted Daugherty on his boastful support for the turgid and mediocre Ohio Senator, Warren G. Hate is a character flaw. A neurological examination was consistent with a mild herniation of his L4-L5 or L5-S1 disk, which probably resulted from carrying a heavy sack of toys, enduring bumpy sleigh rides, and his jarring feet-first falls to the bottom of chimneys. The couple had five children, and Clarence finally revealed his true identity to poor Ada and the children in a December 1901 letter he wrote as he lay dying in Arizona.

Governor Robertson never presided over the Senate, and Governor Gray never served as a Senator. How did they get thousands of miles out into the middle of the Atlantic Ocean? Professor Bond concluded the only delivery method that made sense was that an ancient glacier had ground against the cliffs, carried the limestone out to sea when it calved icebergs, which then melted and dropped the pebbles into the abyss. He got into big time crime working for "the Brain", Arnold Rothstein, the man who fixed the 1919 World Series. Thousands of people turned out for speeches and general festivities in the Army's camp that night One of the reasons the welcome was so strong for Coxey's Army in Hyattstown was that the area had for generations suffered with what was described as "the deficient link of the Great National Western Road.". When it was realized that the arch villain Oliver Cromwell had somehow escaped, rewards were offered and notices posted demanding and threatening punishments unless he were returned. To remain descret, Mr. It produced so much protein per square foot that a family could be supported on a quarter of an acre of land.

And the original firebrand of American poltics, the first self described political fire starter, was William Lowneds Yancey. Yancey's (above) South Carolina family were strongly pro-Federalist, and at an Independence Day


celebration in 1834 the young man told a crowd, "Listen, not then...to the voice which whispers...that Americans...can no longer exist...citizens of the same republic..." He also championed the Federal Union as editor of the "Greenville Mountaineer" - at least until 1835, when he married an Alabama widow with an Alabama plantation and 35 slaves. The United Nations paid $2 million to buy the war surplus aircraft and a company, Commercial Air Transport (CAT), set up by Tommy and run by Claire Chennault, promised to deliver that medicine and food. Nash no longer had any testicles at all, ownership having been returned to the manufacturer) and although the story was clearly based on hearsay and unqualified medical opinion, the eastern papers picked the story up, and you know how that goes. Every yahoo with access to a printing press felt obligated to pontificate. The less they knew of the facts the more opinions they had. Public morality is, it seems to me, an excuse for being ignorant, loudly. And in this case the volume was a thunderclap in a drought. When poor Corporal Noonan returned from patrol all his protestations of innocence and ignorance fell upon deaf ears. But that figure came up again in August of 1884 when Henry was arrested in New Orleans for passing bad checks totaling $7,000, back in "E" town.

The marshal however was transported to jail in Stockton. Unfortunately Joseph encamped his army on mosquito infested marshland outside of Belgrade, and over the next few weeks 33,000 of his troops contracted malaria, including Joseph. But besides a cutting sense of social humor, to remain in business Dr. To earn a living he practiced law, sharing an office with his older brother, Jack. And by what seemed at the time to be a happy coincidence, Neelly now had urgent business in Franklin, Tennessee, just 20 miles south west of Nashville, Governor Lewis' intermediate destination. His achievement dropped the Sox record to 30 wins and 32 losses, with one tie. But just when it seemed as if Russel would have to send the Governor off into the wilderness alone, a seeming savior arrived at Fort Pickering; * James Neelly; agent to the Chickasaw Indians, and an ex-army major. He approached the insurance company (yes, even in 1830 there were insurance companies), and inquired what they might pay as a reward for the return of some of the silver. And, with a little modification in spelling, it changed from "Buncombe", to "bunkum", and then to "bunk", as in a useless, pompus and empty speech, or "bunko" a false promise intended to further a fraud. * Gobbledygook has a much simpler history than bunko, and more recent. He never forgot and he never forgave. Every drop of water was filled with pathogens, bacteria and assorted filth. Louis, and in early January 1808 he advertised for subscribers at $3 a year. And a shlimazel is just like a Jonah, except that God is not involved. This may have once seemed an esoteric pursuit, (although as a life long rock hound it sounds like heaven to me) but in that seemingly meaningless melange of sediments Professor Bond stumbled upon layers of limestone pebbles which had nothing to do with the ocean floor. I believe it was William Yancey whom Jeffereson Davis was thinking of when he said the epitaph of the Confederacy should be, "Died of a Theory.'


After censure, Yancey returned to Alabama, where he died in July of 1863, just 2 weeks before his 49th birthday. R.

In all six banks were pulled under by the Ponzi scheme. There were lots of people worried about just whose pocket one of Polly's distinctive calling cards might fall out of next. In fact squirrels are such an ignored threat to our infrastructure that if Osama bin Ladin had been a squirrel, he would probably still be out there. In another terrorist incident with shadows of 9/11, a recent Americans Airlines flight from Dallas to Tokyo was forced to make an unscheduled stop in Honolulu, after the flight crew heard what they described as a "skittering noise" from above the cockpit. As he stood, he shouted, identifying himself as a police officer, and ordered Terry to stop. Look at the art work from his weekly newspaper (above and below) and make your own assessment. Marshall, who had disarmed David Terry in the courtroom confrontation of '88. But she finally made money off Jacob's mine, once she gave up trying to find it herself, once she switched to selling maps to Jacob's "Lost" mine, for $7 apiece.

The startled crew rushed to Phineas' assistance and found him awake and alert. Or so she said. "Passion...is violence to which you get hooked by pleasure." Isabelle Adjani "In the city and county of San Francisco...on the twenty-fifth day of August, A.D.1880, I, Sarah Althea Hill....do here, in the presence of Almighty God, take Senator William Sharon, of the state of Nevada, to be my lawful and wedded husband...I agree not to make known the contents of this paper or its existence for two years..."

Charles Tiffany (above in his 5th Avenue shop) was the public personification of Tiffany and Company. And that again confirmed McMasters' documents; Ponzi was worse than broke.

They were his fellow board members on the New York and Erie Railroad, and it seemed to them that Jacob was overextended. Here they camped for two days. Even today, three out of every four oil fields are discovered because of surface "seeps" of asphalt. Dove's death that is. In exchange for a small taste (bribe), boatmen working the ferries


between the immigration station on Ellis Island and Manhattan would alert ropers (outside men) when they spotted a rube with a crowded oakus (a new immigrant with a full wallet). I found you on your uppers in Chicago" Smith shouted. Tey also managed to draw the army into the conspiracy. Naturally, "The Commodore", as Vanderbilt liked to be called, was seeking a monopoly, so he could charge whatever freight rates he wanted, and he began to buy stock in the Erie. And none of these great men were above hiring thugs to drive squatters off "their" land.

But at 48, he was getting too old to risk his life four times a day for ten cents a ticket. In the words of Tom Jensen, director of PPP, "Only 3% of the Republicans we surveyed said they voted for Barrett last fall, but now 10% say they would, if they could do it over again." What can you say about a Republican who is so not a RINO that he is driving voters to the Democrats? You can say that he is the winner of the 2011 Ides of March Award! Our winner was described by the Boston Globe as "...a boyish-looking man with sleepy eyes". Frederick's lawyers argued in Federal Court that the new will which Althea had produced was a forgery, as were the marriage contracts she had used to win her alimony claim in the California courts.

"...give me the sum of (a) thousand dollars and I will leave town and take my daughter with me...". Each source is independent of the others, and although they would not pass muster in a court of law, in history research they are about as close as we are ever going to get to the truth. In 1839 an almost destitute Gregor McGregor left England and sailed for Venezuela. That's where I fell in love when the stars came out to play. Offered a chance to surrender, he responded, "I have not yet begun to fight." Then the British warship surrendered to him. When that war was over John Paul Jones was out of work. Yancey denied it, but that question indicated there was no chance that England would recognize the South. The cowboy fell from his horse, and either from being shot or from the fall, he broke his arm. Does that sound familiar?

In this case the Republic is the modifier of the flag, which makes sense because the original intent was to sell flags; remember? But that was not good enough for all those who honestly wanted to improve on the oath, make it

The pressure by 1970 was for Nixon to increase taxes to pay for the war. Nobody got anything done because nobody could hear anybody else. In the end, the nicest thing I can say about Stanton is that he was a "rude and offensive" manic depressive lunatic on the right side of history.

Eight years later Stanton lay literally sobbing on Lincoln's deathbed. Libbie wrote that Tom Custer was very "put out" by this desertion. By now anything short of total domination by slave states was not a victory, in Yancey's view. Also in 1838 the true nature of the man was revealed, when an alleged political insult led to a street brawl between Yancey and his wife's uncle.

And Dr. Physically they were very similar, and they shared the post of Secretary of War, albeit a century apart. Sharon... He forbade his normally profane roustabouts from cursing on his first California drilling site, which earned it the name of Christian Hill". But Doctor von Brucke did invent the field of psychodynamics, which, while a medical dead end in itself, was to have a great impact on his student, Sigmund Freud. But Freud's discovery of the subconcious mind and repressed psychosomatic phobias and dreams


about locks and keys and mik maids and bows and arrows was still a decade in the future in 1875 - which was a shame because a little Freud sure would have helped those poor ladies at Fort Abraham Lincoln in 1878. However, I believe his bulbous nose and erythematic face may indicate long-term ethanol abuse. As teenagers they ran away together, and in 1799 were married in Nashville, about the time their daughter, Parthenia, was born.

Ramses crushed this first worker's revolt in history as if he were the Governor of Wisconsin. Give her the best, and as cheap as you can." It seems the Senator had agreed to provide Althea with rooms at the Grand, which was connected via a convenient second story bridge across the street with Sharon's more opulent Palace Hotel (above). In 1932 fifteen thousand well organized WWI veterans marched on Washington, petitioning their government for early payment of their long promised war bonuses. They called this hybrid a "factor". Daniel would have been condemned to die in obscurity, remembered only as the first defendant to use the temporarily insanity defense in America, but the outbreak of the civil war saved his reputation. This proved to be a bad idea, as just two days after launcing their tiny armada, two men drowned and two canoes were overturned (dumping all their food and supplies) as the river alternated between cascades, rapids and rock stewn shallows. He was put on a high-fibre, low cholesterol diet, and advised to reduce his smoking and drinking. And to everyone's amazement, Ponzi won a $500,000 judgment. Fast. In the public's mind, Mellon, who was by then 70 years old, had become the face of the "old system". And George Hoyt just wasn't fast enough in escaping. I mean, there's Attila, Genghis... The fifth shot misfired, and witnesses managed to restrain Daniel from delivering a 'coup de grace.' Not that it mattered; Phillip Key would soon be dead. The eight defense lawyers reminded the jurors that Daniel was "...in a state of white heat, (which) was too great a state of passion for a man to be in, who saw before him the hardened, the unrelenting seducer of his wife".

In 1856 Daniel was elected to the New York State Senate, which shortly thereafter censured him for giving a tour of those august chambers to Miss White, who was at this time identified as the operator of a popular N.Y.C.

And that was probably not an exaggeration. * At a time when railroads were the high tech, Jacob Little, tall and slim and "careless in his attire, wearing a hat like that of a farmer, and not a very prosperous one", was known as the 'Railway King'. But Grant didn't trust Johnson. Having led armies to defeat slavery the General had no intention of aiding a President seemingly intent on protecting the institition.

He built pipelines and refineries. Percival had even calculated Planet X's mass, and he knew exactly where it had to be in the sky, 40 times further out from the sun than the earth. * For ten years Percival and his assistants - okay, mostly his assistants - scoured photographs of the night sky, searching for the tell-tale movement in the star field that would herald the discovery of Planet X.

Then, on the morning of August 28, 1858, almost in Lyman's own backyard, the foreman of the Pennsylvania Oil Company spotted fresh oil standing in the 69 foot drill hole he had decided just the night before to abandon. And in order to avoid the embarrassment, Boss Tom had not declared it on his Federal income tax. When James Pendergast won big, betting on horse named Climax, he invested the winnings in a bar, restaurant and hotel in St. Lawyer Dove kept Oliver confined to a chest until his death in 1687 - Mr. In Scotland the target is humiliatingly referred to as an "April Gawk" (?!), in England as a "Noodle" and in Canada as an "American." I would have expected mental health professionals to call for a stop to this public insanity but evidently they are too busy setting their patients' shoes on fire. Not even a war could snap the world out of this cruel insanity. He was living lavishly while average Americans suffered (an exaggeration). Terry decided to simply ignore the federal court ruling. President Johnson, who had promised to cease obstructing the Reconstruction acts, would survive. In a footnote - Arnold's nemesis, Henry Hardworths, was not satisfied with having mortally wounded Arnold. Pentaweret was forced to drink poison. So they began to treat those flowers with pepper spray to discourage the rodent-al assaults. The Federal government decided that the problem was not that the working stiffs had been pushed to far, it was that not enough force had been applied to keeping them under control. When Joseph took the field in the summer of 1788 to join his 100,000 man army in laying siege to Belgrade, disaster seemed inevitable to everybody except Joseph.

Still, if there is nothing new in the story about a lad being arrested with Queen Victoria's undies stuffed down his pants, it is at least entertaining to read about it.Early on the morning of June 20th, 1837 Alexandria Victoria made a typically teenager's entry into her diary; "I was awoke at 6 o'clock by Mamma....I am Queen." Except in her case it was real. And thus the diminutive monarch was set upon a collision course with an equally abbreviated young lad, who first made his appearance in history on December 14, 1838, when his soot blackened face suddenly appeared at the glass door entrance to The Marble Hall in Buckingham Palace...from the inside. The Saginaw Chippewa Tribe paid him $150,000. Major Dwight David Eisenhower, who was the liaison with the district cops, described the burning of the shantytown as "pitiable."

He had no doubt that God meant him to be wealthy and wanted him to expand his empire. Which meant Ponzi's business model was not possible.

Again, the mark went to the police and this time William Moore was sent to Sing Sing for several years, for assault and attempted blackmail. Van Dyck was certain that they did. However none of them had been effective. In a story that would be familiar to any who watches local news, Holdsworth left the bar and returned a few minutes later with a double barreled shotgun. And on top of that Jamie's mother came looking for him. In Egypt they were called the Sea Peoples, and fighting them off left the treasury flat broke. A Massachusetts Institute of Technology study done in 1971 calculated the real cost of the Vietnam War (in 1971 dollars) was about $750 billion, equal to the first Wall Street bailout thirty-five years later which caused all fiscal conservatives to flinch.("Vietnam; Past and Present" by D.R.

Bertrand had a master plan for victory, funded by a $14 million war chest (equal to $207.5 million today), with over a million of that coming from just three families - DuPont, Pew and Rockefeller and the rest almost entirely from business leaders anxious to prevent further Federal regulations of their business. And then there was "The Liberty League," described by one historian as "...the best-financed and the most professionally run...anti-big-government organization ever to come down the pike."

Thus ended the naval and diplomatic career of Lt. And for the first time Congress began to take public note of the marchers, and their first reaction was, of course, panic.

Neither the judge nor the jury failed to see through that little fig leaf of judical logic, but... This was not an impossible dream, as another Hoosier politician would shortly prove - one, Benjamen Harrison. * Yes, Grey (above) had a nifty plan, clever enough to be worthy of Machiavelli. Its huge soft padded feet allow it to climb sand dunes with ease. birth certificate in 2008. And a single Bessie in "heat" can set off a Daisy chain of cow girls "mounting" herd mates in a riot of bovine dominatrix behavior. , he still maintained a suite at a Baltimore Hotel for his assignations with Fanny White, and other "soiled doves" in her employ. Shortly after the legal couple moved, Daniel was introduced to Phillip Key, and the two struck up a friendship of kindred spirits. Ouch, that little insult must have hurt. Those men without names died to create our world. As her condition  quickly worsened she called for a priest, and after seeing


him she told the ladies caring for her that she wanted to be buried as she was, without the usual washing and re-dressing. His ineffectualness at dealing with the Great Depression (the stock market crash had occurred just 6 months after he first took office) was so obvious that Herbert won only 6 states - Pennsylvania, Delaware, R.I., Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. And because Jacob had been born in Germany, making him a "Deutsch man" or 'Dutchman' to parochial American ears, the magical mystery was marketed as the "Lost Dutchman Mine."You too can find the Lost Dutchman Mine. Curiously the accident happened directly behind the home of Democratic Senator Edward Kennedy. The government of Chile charged him with espionage. Even though he neither smoked nor drank himself, Hays kept the cigars lit and the booze flowing "Neighbor", he and once said to Herbert Hoover, "I want to be helpful."

"It is foolish to pretend that one is fully recovered from a disappointed passion. Cows share a common ancestor with whales, the "Pakictids", which 53 million years ago had a whale's ear and a cow's teeth in a really ugly little dog's body, sort of a Mexican hairless meth addict with hair.

But Daniel came away from that meeting convinced that Phillip could be trusted. And with that, officially, Althea was now a perjurer and forger, in both the Federal and the State courts. While these momentous events were unfolding, the time limit for Althea to appeal the Federal Court Order, requiring her to hand over the marriage agreements and the will, ran out. It was a common story, an angry fourteen year old running away from home, not worth repeating on the front page of a large newspaper, except for the name in the headline "Coxey's Army". "Once, indeed, the Tin Woodman stepped upon a beetle that was crawling along the road, and killed the poor little thing.

John Paul decided to stay in Virginia, and to confuse any hounding lawyers added a third name to his moniker. But if a man note Tyburn, 'will appear, That there's a tree that bears twelve times a year." And there, from a rude gibbet, a rough wooden beam, William and Jane, hopefully blind drunk, danced together at the end of their ropes. For this double murder, Moses rewards Phineas. In fact, a few people may have; probably it just never made the papers. Leland was one of the Big Four who built the California half of the first trans-continental railroad, supposedly completed with a golden spike in the summer of 1869. Thousands of investors were wiped out, including Abel Corbin, and an angry mob swarmed the Gould's brokerage offices, smashing the furnishings and chanting "Who killed Charles Lessup?" Of course the trio of Gould, Fisk and Drew, walked away from the wreckage with an $11 million profit. Daniel Drew was to be Jay's next victim. And to his two children." *


But Eddie had offered up his own obituary years earlier. He lost. New Orleans had been captured by the U.S. A year later, Philip expelled the Jews from France - after seizing their property of course. Hamilton, however, was not willing to use his official office to cover up his personal peccadilloes. Eddie said something about the victory being tainted, and Parnelli punched Eddie in the face. Tommy explained to Abe, "He is a rich man who's scared...I think you can get $100,000 down this morning."

The 40 thieves banded together, hired themselves a "press boat", stocked it with food, a cook and alcohol, and named it "The Flying Demon". Finally they reached the traditional site of execution, where a large crowd waited, at a spot where there once had stood a tree. As the old poem went, "I have heard sundry men oft times dispute, Of trees, that in one year will twice bear fruit. Mr. He was there to log-in a little suck-up time with his boss, President James Garfield, who was about to leave for a two week vacation on the 9:15 train to Baltimore. * Yes, Garfield had only been on the job for about three months, and it might have seemed a little quick to be taking a vacation, but he was the boss and the rules are different for bosses. But so strong was the public support for change that the newspaper's leadership ignored the ban and set the date for the Rally as August 16th. The tenants were not surprised.

Ponzi was not worth $8 million, but was $4.5 million in debt. She urged Robert to urge the King to offer Thomas the post of ambassador to Russia. It was also Wilkerson who was responsible for the U.S. Clearly it was the head of the living cow that Gandi was thinking of when he wrote, "The cow is a poem of pity...She is the second mother to millions of mankind." She is also, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, the source of 18% of the world's methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. It was located in one of the most unfrequented parts of the United States....once...on a very still day, I thought I heard something in the far distance that sounded like the ghost of a whistle. During transport to the Alameda county jail, Althea repeatedly


said she intended to kill the judge. And schools were suddenly uncertain of vacation schedules. As proof of this contention I now present you with the head of Emile Henri, who lost his head over the injustice he suffered because of another inarticulate Frenchman who sought to challenge the establishment and managed only to blow his nose at them. Everything about Auguste Vaillant screams of irony. The ten doctor panel was unanimous in finding a direct link between smoking and lung cancer, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, cardiovascular diseases and cancer of the larynx. And when a French Cardinal was elected Pope, Philip had him placed under house arrest in Avignon, thus ensuring Philip could now plunder all the church accounts he could reach. Noted Porter, "Slime, mud, and mephitic (fould smelling and poisonous) odors were encountered, and long red worms appeared in abundance."

And yet inside Anna there still burned a passion, which had metamorphosed into a burning fierce hatred of her old boyfriend, Solomon Sharp. He was socially inept. Foyt, described racing with Eddie Sachs on the thousands of small dirt and asphalt tracks (above) across America in the 1950's; "He could take the worst-handling pig...and just manhandle that thing into looking like a winner...Most drivers have a bad day now and then, but more often their cars have a bad day. As the freeholders intended, that put the Governor in a bind, because the dead Indians had signed a peace treaty. His son and heir, Heqamatre, became Ramses IV, but he ruled for just six years.

The retreat reached such levels of panic that Joseph was knocked off his horse and fell in a stream, not a recommended treatment for a man recovering from malaria. But thanks to their investment, Frankfurt was, in 1825, and remains to this day, one of the smallest state capitals in the Union. But in the bottles and the casks the monks could not consume over the winter (and they tried to drink it all), the spring temperatures re-started the fermentation. There was no law on "The Trace". He was now facing an actor just as capable of historanics as himself. Overnight, Nathaniel slipped out of town and returned the next morning in front of an ad hoc audience, er, army, of 300 freeholder militiamen. That suggests rations, which suggests an organized raiding party which was crossing the Tollense River in the summer, when the water level was down. However, all this merely proves that a smart woman is just as likely to have terrible a taste in men as a dumb woman. But again, Jacob was not lucky. No Campaign corks popping.

Stanton never actually shot anyone, but when he was a young man he did carry a large knife in his pants, which would have fascinated Freud had he been born yet.  GUIDELINE NUMBER ONE: ARROGANCE. The contender must display an inability to realize their own limitations. And it was George McClure, the companies' head gemologist, who oversaw the army of designers who created the Tiffany jewelry style. But he missed the mines of his youth and continued his profession in the silver strike boom town of White Oaks, where he became "one of the oldest and most universally respected citizens..." in Lincoln County, New Mexico. By 1868 he had amassed a small fortune on the gambles taken by others, and from that he had somehow aquired a reputation as a savvy oil man. To the point, she was thus unencumbered when she met by happenstance or connivance the sixty year old United States Senator William Sharon. He (above) was a dirty old man, one of the richest dirty old men in California, and his taxes alone made up 2% of the entire budget of the city of San Francisco. But eventually the Parisian bullies grew bored with taunting the unresponsive peasants and in 1572 they shifted their attentions to the Huguenots. But both peoples knew enough to gather the bounty left by the tide. What the rotund Congressman Butler (above) from New York delivered were a few words added to the General Mining Act of 1872, approved in record time and with a minimum of debate in either the house or the Senate, and taking effect on July 9th. Jacob Coxey was in court to show support and pay the fines for his two friends. Because when Mansa paused in Cairo to stock up on souvenirs, he paid in gold. "...A party of thirty tramps is reported moving down the valley from Carlisle." In the village of Middletown, said the press, "deputies are being sworn in to protect the town." Still, even the alarmist press was forced to admit that "the conduct of the Coxey men In Hagerstown has so far been exemplary."More than that, it was evident that the Army had learned a thing or two about marketing. Because He Was Sexy? Really? THE VALUE OF MONEY I understand why Republicans have such naive faith in capitalists. He attributed these symptoms to being "not as young as I used to be, HO! HO! HO!", but thought he should have them checked out. But scientists seeking out the magnetic orientation of hills created by the European ground mole


(Talpa europaea), stumbled over the meaty idea that perhaps larger mammals might also be influenced by something other than human magnetism. German researchers examined Google Earth photographs taken at the same local time of day, observing some 8,510 individual cows in 308 separate herds on five different continents, at essentially the same moment. First there was the Saturday of June 25, 1876, when over two hundred and twenty of their husbands and lovers were left dead and mutilated on the windswept hills overlooking the Little Big Horn River. They called that Custer's Last Stand, but it killed several members of the Custer family. But over the long dark winter months Hunt started to think for himself, a mistake which was to prove disastrous. By early December, when the Tonquin stopped for fresh water in the Falkland Islands, the passengers had begun speaking only French in the presence of Captain Thorn, because they knew he did not speak French and it drove him crazy. His corpse was removed to the University anatomy theatre, carved up and used as an abject lesson in sin and immoral behavior - not a very productive example when the profession was seeking to encourage others to donate their bodies to medical science.And to drive their pointless point home even stronger, Burke's skeleton remains in Edinburgh to this day, in a glass case, labeled as a notorious fiend and a serial murderer. He materialized out of the Sahara heat shimmers like a mirage in 1324. In that sudden wealth, Lyman Stewart saw the hand of God. * Yet, it was a risky business, looking for oil. (But) I don't think it's going to cause a problem unless the flickering makes the dispatcher dizzy and she has a seizure, falls out and hits her forehead on the desk." Less drolly, the Chief of the Billard Volunteer Fire Department, in East Texas, admitted it was a suicidal squirrel attack that caused a 30 acre brush fire that damaged 11 cars, a motorcycle and a house. So we started on a widely extended prospecting trip. Clearly the Turks were intending on opening a supply line to Vida, down the Timas and then up the Danube to Belgrade, breaking the seige. The constable jerked William's arm up and drove a shoulder into his waist, as the head turnkey, Richard Spurling, raced forward to help. And second, it never turned a profit. Almost two thirds were skilled mechanics, but less than half of those were union members. Both men tumbled to the floor, the turnkey knocked silly. To get this movement started we need lots of tools and cranks." (lyrics and music by Michael Brown) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pG6taS9R1KM His commanding officer in the forerunner of the CIA, Major Gustav Krause, described the situation rather simply; "Militarily, John Birch brought about his own death." Birch was a life long missionary on a military mission on August 25, 1945, when he ran into a patrol of Mao's Red Army. Harding ( above, shaking hands with Ruth)  - and his running mate Massachusetts governor Calvin Coolidge (above), even though, in the inimitable words of Alice Roosevelt Longworth, Coolidge looked "as though he'd been weaned on a pickle." Harding and Coolidge (red counties) won 60% of the popular vote, and 404 electoral votes. Louis writer noted, "Pendergast never did hunt ducks with a brass band. Captain Meriwether Lewis had commanded this post for awhile back in the 1790's, and now as Governor Lewis he was back. Of course, contained within them were the seeds of destruction for the entire enterprise, and everyone associated with it. He served them more coffee and promised to replant any trees damaged. There was none.


Instead, over Saturday and Sunday an estimated 6,000 unarmed curious citizens visited the encampment in peace. Then you find your opponent's weakness in his record or conduct - he's too liberal, he's soft on defense, he's too weak on criminals, he's got character problems - and you move in, hitting harder and harder - with no letup. Or maybe I'm still just a rock hound. So here was poor Bob, wandering around this cavernous hothouse, pathetically hoping to make some headway against his biggest rival in the cabinet, the even bigger suck up, Secretary of State James Blaine, known about town as the "monumental liar from the state of Maine". It was estimated that between 1930 and 1959 11 million smokers worldwide would die of smoking related cancers and strokes. The industry paid $3 billion in taxes and spent $250 million in advertising. On May 19, 1826, after just one hour of deliberations, they returned with a verdict of guilty.In his jail cell Jereboam dropped all pretense of innocence and wrote out a lengthy confession, filled with all the drama and heroics he clearly wanted to believe had characterized his life and reputation. The two new convicts now had a new enemy. Now, if these two litigants had regained full control of their faculties, and issued a pro forma apology, as any sane person in this situation would have done, that would have been the end of this tale. Not that he wants to be king - Antonio is no Richard the Third. To achieve this, they had to first butcher his Swiss guard, and their bodies were dumped into a common grave right next to Jones' resting place. Attorney General Palmer had predicted a communist-anarchist uprising on May Day. The declaration went on to demand the arrest of Will and 19 other FFVers as "traitors to the people". Proof of the importance of women in Ancient Egypt can be found in events which occurred some 4,200 years ago, at the end of what is called "The New Kingdom" - which gives you some idea of how old Egyptian civilization really is. But not Walker. Within a few weeks this once abandoned well, outside of Titusville, Pennsylvania, would be producing the unheard of bounty of 20 barrels a day. The only silos to store their harvested crops while awaiting shipment were owned by the railroads. He arrived with a smile and a quiet self assurance. "Every one of my workers has a fund to buy food, coal, shoes and clothing. Still, adjusted for latitude, 70% of all cows point toward the magnetic pole, and this is much too large a percentage to be a mere homogenized coincidence. I burp occasionally. Under questioning the brothers confirmed the details but, no, they insisted, they knew nothing else. Jack needed to reestablish control, and that included his control of the courts. And then in early September Joseph received intelligence that the Turks were sending troops to reinforce the fortress of Vivda, on the Timas River, a tributary of the Danube. During the days he slept in the 24 room mansion he also built on Mars Hill. The lady scratched faces, the old man threw punches, but once order was restored, the court completed reading the decision of contempt on the earlier court order, which, needless to say went against Althea and David. There is no longer any gold behind your dollar, and, really, there is no silver, either. Several Federal Marshals and assorted guards and lawyers who had been waiting for just this sort of outburst from these two, descended upon the feisty pair. But they also record something else, equally as ominous and philosophically troubling. Cominsky had refused to hear him. And it left Daniel Drew, abandoned by his partners, out $1.5 million. It is worth noting that the building had originally been constructed to house a prison, Richmond's Libby prison, bought lock, stock, and barrel by a Chicago candy millionaire and shipped north to form the centerpice of a Civil War Museum. Surely these ancient women had to be multitaskers. Young. Corcoran got all of his four.". Dr Knox was forced to dissect Jamie's face first to calm those few squeamish students and to disguise the evidence. And all we know for certain is that John Perry, Richard Perry and Joan Perry slowly strangled at the end of a rope, as punishment for a crime they did not commit. Daniel had so far made a second career out of developing legal problems, so he decided that Phillip Key was the perfect man to escort Terresa to Washington social functions, while Daniel was "relaxing" in Baltimore with Fanny White, and others. *


Friends tried to warn Daniel about Phillip's reputation, and in March of 1858 Daniel had a confrontation with Phillip concerning accusations that were already bubbling up about his intentions toward Terresa. Unfortunatly, despite the construction over the graves, the ground was not well compacted, and a great deal of time would have to be spent shoring up the shafts, and supporting the building walls. Gilbert Russel, the current commander of Fort Pickering, had ordered the post medic to prevent Governor Lewis from drinking anymore laudanum. However he also leased a suite at a Baltimore Hotel for his assignations with Fanny White, and other "soiled doves" in her employ. * Shortly after the couple moved, Daniel was introduced to Mr. Buckley even mentioned it in a column posthumously published in March of 2008, entitled "Goldwater, the John Birch Society, and Me." In discussing how to distance conservatism from Welch, Buckley made a joke, which he explained this way; "The wisecrack traced to Robert Welch's expressed conviction...that the state of Alaska was being prepared to house anyone who doubted his doctrine that fluoridated water was a Communistbacked plot to weaken the minds of the American public." I like to think of Alaska as the new Texas, that way. The John Birch Society is part of a long line of insanity that stains the American psyche, from the anti-French and anti-Irish 'Alien and Sedition Acts' of 1798, through the "Order of United Americans", the "Know Nothing Party", the Immigration Restriction League, the anarchists scare, the "Yellow Peril", the imaginary Pearl Harbor betrayal plots, the Black helicopters hiding in our national parks, the militia movement and the mythical bombs planted in the twin towers. His cause of death is, oddly, given nowhere in his obituaries. - 30 NEXT WEDNESDAY THE LITTLE GREEN HOUSE ON K STREET The Logical Progression FRIDAY - FEET OF CLAY Investing In Chicago and America LIBERTARIAN HERO  I wish the average libertarian could meet Jay Gould, because he was unfettered capitalism in the flesh, "the human incarnation of avarice," as one minister described him, the Mephistopheles of Wall Street, the robber baron par excellence, "prince of the railroad schemers", annd the man within whom all the theories of the libertarians about capitalism and freedom met the reality of human nature, and got the tar beat out of it. He was a "...short, thin man with cold black eyes, a narrow face and, in his maturity, a "full black beard". And in the age of corporate America, they may not be mere facilitators, but ideologically proselytes, who are driven to bribe and seduce in search of a cultural holy grail. That hurt troubled railroads. Over the next four years, failing railroads (156 of them) led to failed banks (almost 400 of them), which produced failed small businesses (almost 5,000 of them). Harrison and Zachary Taylor. Harding, who had lost in the Indiana primary and could muster just 65 votes. Under this cloud of


conspiracies, even those railroads that were real, suffered from endless manipulation. Pierre did not invent champagne. . So the the entire trip had been unnecessary. WSJ columnist Stephen Moore wrote, "It's foolish to believe that backing down will satisfy the unions. Businesses couldn't expand because the government had sucked up all the credit. "...you say we rob you; you say we intend to establish a cordon of Free States around you; you say that we are persistent in what we do on this point...you say that the difficulty seems to arise chiefly from a difference in our construction of the Constitution." Judah Benjamin interjected, "The charge is not that Congress does it, but that the States do it." Baker swirled his cape in front of his opponent. "Very well," he said. Nothing was well done without him". Into the acrid gun smoke and sudden silence this unnamed Democrat announced that he was prepared to start killing Republicans if they kept fighting. * With that, Lt. Terressa barely survived that war, succumbing to tuberculosis on February 5, 1867, at the age of just thirty-one. Franklin was hanged. Then Will magnanimously pardoned him. Still, with the incoming new adminstration there was reason for the wealthy denizens of Washington to hope. When he returned to the office, Thomas announced that he would now issue orders as Secretary of War. Thomas tried that, but discovered he could no longer get in. Of course, George had since improved on his design, adding six inches for increased stability. It seems to provide proof that four thousand years ago, war had already become a standardized, ritualized young man's game, just as it is today. Army's worst peace time disaster. Well, a few people may have been shot, but the newspapers probably buried the details. He just made it to the bedside before his father died, but then Bob had to share his private grief with the grief of millions of strangers. He had never felt better, he told the reporter, and denounced the rumors as a "da-n lie." Two months later he suffered a stroke and really died. Ender's only reaction was one of admiration. The Front's defendants were largely acquitted. It seemed there was an air of uncertancy hanging over England, inspiring the citizens to begin to demand certainty.In April of 1661 the Perry family were brought to trial, convicted by a jury of their peers and duly hanged. The next day, Stanton wrote his letter of resignation. Abandoned, Thayer surrendered the Governor's offices, and Boyd moved in. * But Thayer was far from ready to give up. Treasury to sell $4 million in gold. It was just a raid, and was not intended to come close to Vicksburg. On the other side of the bridge, officers were throwing up a defensive line to hold back the Turks, of whom there were actually none within fifty miles. Then they put her in a box, and sent her off to Doctor Knox. He served for just one year, and performed such assignments as introducing Emilia Erhart to the King of England (above). Nathaniel immediately marched his little army off to butcher some local Indians. The Marshal immediately informed Judge Field, who was asleep in his compartment. It arrived on November 20, 1922, and carried no "return address". They would then dump the stock and leave the suckers owning a suddenly broke and worthless railroad; As the lawyer Tom Hagan explains in "The Godfather", "Its just business, Sonny." * Just to keep all the crooks honest, any member of the "cartel" who sold below $90 a share pledged to pay a $25,000 fine to his fellow conspirators. *


Jacob Little was one of the few non-New Englanders in on this game and one of the largest holders of Norwich stock. By the end of the summer of 1862 Halleck had been transferred, and the task of capturing Vicksburg fell to Lt. He was late, of course, and when his parents invited Bob to go to the theatre with them, Bob begged off and stayed home. We know it was Hopkinson because he actually submitted two bills for his design - the first one for 9 pounds. From this it was theorized that oil would never be found in the rocks in which it had formed, the "source rock". In their Vulgate Latin a "jalle" was a measure of liquid, equal to our gallon, and a "jalgium" was the stick or rod inserted into an amphora to measure how much wine was left. But so brilliantly had Jacob gamed the system that future generations of Wall Street bulls used his trick to transfer future fortunes into their bank accounts at the expense of future generations of suckers - until the rules were changed to require a convertible bond be held for at least sixty days before it could be transferred into common stock. *  Most Wall Street fairy tails end the story here, with The Napoleon of the Board Room winning until he faded into history. Tallow candles were made from farm animal fat, and every rural home had a candle box. Will demanded an apology from his nephew, who proudly refused. Then in June of 1676 Nathaniel arrived in Jamestown for the opening of the House of Burgesses and Will took the opportunity to arrest the little snot. Mellon called it "weeding out". Once the area around capital had been cleared the General led his little army across the river to attack the shackytown where the desperate veterans had left their families (above). Nothing was well done without him". Collisions with birds during his flight, gunshot wounds (while flying over the Los Angles area) and bites consistent with reindeer teeth may also have contributed to these wounds. Patches of leukoderma and anesthesia on his nose, cheeks, penis, and distal digits are consistent with frostbite caused by periods of hypothermia during high-altitude flights. It was the purposeful invention of the one term Mayor of San Antonio, Texas, and later Congressman, the Honorable Fontaine Muaury Maverick. * The mayor served only one term because a communist had rented a meeting room in the cities' Civic Auditorium. This gravitational pin ball game had pulled the moon into a collision with the Earth, and allowed its capture. But it did not last. * While Amos had been running the Post Office, he had decreed that local postmasters could refused any mail which they deemed to be either abolitionist or proslavery. Leo Africanus, an Islamic historian, wrote that in Timbuktu, "There is a great demand for books, and more profit is made from the trade in books than from any other line of business." The scholar Ahmad Baba claimed that his personal library was one the smaller ones in the city, containing only 1,600 books. In retrospect it seemed the investors were so busy trying to cheat each other, they made it easy for the professionals. And it was there, on July 17, 1792, that the 45 year old was found lying face down on his bed, dead as a doornail. That very afternoon, Commissioner Allen seized Hanover Trust. He was a partisan in the extreme and his politics were always personal. In 1870 Fisk and Gould secretly sold their shares in the Erie to the Commodore for $5 million. I felt I had gotten more than I had paid for. Grandpa managed to beat the killer squirrel to death with his crutch. It would be far more effective


for both of these men to make their appeals together, and safer for Governor Lewis if he had someone to watch his laudanum consumption during the trip back. In 1882 Andrew became the President and primary shareholder. If you go down to the woods today you better go in disguise. When confronted in August by Pratt, Gould stunned the man by offering to buy him out for $60,000. The paperwork thus complete, Nathaniel marched off with 1,000 men to butcher the nearest Indians. About now it dawned on the more thoughtful freeholders that they had hitched their fortunes to a rather temperamental artist. And when Robert told Francis about Thomas' threat, it was open war between Francis and Thomas. He wanted to be a politician. As it does the river collects vast amounts of gold, which could teased from the waters. * Dugout canoes then carried the gold downstream, following the river north, penetrating the desert. So he became known as the Great Unknown Smith. After the brawl the South Platte faction removed themselves across the river to the hamlet of Florence, which had, according to the newspaper "Nebraskian", "...been, for months, laboring assiduously to delude strangers that it was a city". * The entire place only became a state over President Andrew Johnson's veto in 1867. I guess, as the old saying goes, no news is good news, and really good news is no news at all. * Dorthy retreated from Chicago to familiar territory, a Dianetics training facility in Arizona. The Cooper was the only rear engine car at the Speedway that year. The ownership of human beings converted Yancey to pro-slavery. But as Fowler acknowledged, "....phrenology is either fundamentally true or else untrue..." - a statement which standing alone is undoubtedly true. Arnold pulled his pistol and fired twice. You must die!" Thereupon Daniel pulled a derringer and fired. In March of 1807 he reported to the President in Washington, D.C. Franklyn Delano Roosevelt became "Stalin Delano Roosevelt". The top five percent of the population control most of the nation's wealth, and are using fear mongering to reduce the government to impotence. The value of Donald's corpse was set by Dr. I will countermand." In front of Thomas, Stanton then dictated a letter to Thomas, saying, "Sir: I am informed that you presume to issue orders as Secretary of War...you are hereby commanded to abstain from issuing any orders other than in your capacity as Adjutant-General of the army." Stanton then signed the completed letter, handed it to Thomas, and ordered him out of the office. A bewildered Thomas slinked back to the White House and informed Johnson of this conversation. Immediately Frederick's lawyers requested an order of contempt be issued against her, which the Federal Court, meeting in the Assessor's Building in San Francisco (above), immediately agreed to issue that contempt. Terry's strategy of defiance was thus proven bankrupt. On November 21st, of 1840 Victoria gave birth to a daughter. The move saved the small town from financial ruin. In 1859 Phineas rejoined his mother, sister and her husband, who were now living in California. Knowing Eddie I assume that's the way he would have wanted it. Under military protection (of 1,000 troops) these men harvested Captain Boycott's crops... But he could prove nothing. They dragged it inland a few hundred yards, divided and re-buried it in two new caches, one of $40,000 and the second of $16,000. (Even today, the U.S. It was all boiler plate, industry standard arraignments. And that wealth along with his intimate knowledge of sugar's effects on children's teeth gave him the


authority to lecture to 12 true believers for two days straight, about the worldwide communist conspiracy. As they rode up Bridge Street on their way back to camp, they passed the Comique. Things got so bad that the Secretary of War, penny pincher William Eustis, suggested that the General move his troop to healthier ground north of the city, even as far as Natchez . Instead, Wilkerson moved them down river, into the swamps - to a spot called Terre aux Boeufs. There is a reason the practice of criminalizing poverty has been discarded. The playboy dropped to the ground, begging, "Don't shoot me", and shouting, "Murder." Daniel finally pulled his revolver, and his third shot hit the tree. He had been re-elected President without serious opposition because, luckily for Teddy, Mark Hanna had died of typhoid fever in February of 1904. Whoever wrote this stuff, this was not your average stuff. In truth, we are the answer to all those questions. And shortly thereafter he died. He has experienced chronic back pain for several years. And that proved the case for Julia. Unseen by inattentive humans, a pasture of grazing Gurneys is in reality a seething mass of bored libidos on steroids. Second; Alf publicly supported so many parts of the New Deal that he was at odds with the Republican party platform. Third; Alf was a terrible public speaker. Those who wear them should bear in mind that it will require their most strenuous exertions ... James Cox (above), the Democratic candidate for President in 1920, vacillated between support for Wilson's League of Nations and rejection of it, and so lost both Wilson's endorsement and the support of those Democrats who disliked Wilson. And it was about here, as the fall of 1886 approached, that Frederick Newlander opened yet a third front against Althea and David Terry; the political front. "But this had been a sin of passion, not of principle, nor even purpose." Nathaniel Hawthorne In the elections of November of 1886, Fredrick Newlander threw huge sums behind the "Blind Boss", Christopher Buckley. And, as one observer at the time noted, "Some one or other told James that it was commonly reported that, whilst Rochester ruled the King, Overbury ruled Rochester." That angered the King, who didn't like Thomas much anyway. At lest one of them was bound to warn Jacob about the brewing coup d'etat. It is a borrowed word, which is a nice way of saying it may be the only English word for which the Shakespeare family is does not collect royalties. He flies in a sleigh pulled by eight reindeer, and gains access to homes via chimneys. In September Judge Jeremiah Sullivan ruled that what Althea and Senator Sharon shared was a common law marriage, and awarded Althea alimony of $2,500 a month. So thank you all for reading and responding. Second, I do not repond to discussions because since the stroke, I simply do not have the concentration to write and respond. And then he went one step further himself, beyond his authority. Mr. Nora strongly denied the accusation and a special master who carefully examined Andrew's evidence, rejected his claim. In fact there were three Presidents present at that ceremony. Those two had copper plates identifying their occupants. Still the validity of the prophecy was reinforced by a stream of letters "The Guardians" mysteriously left in Dorthy's apartment over the following weeks. While the trapped Democrats sulked in the cloak room, Speaker Grey staged votes for the 13th, 14th and 15th reconstruction amendments to the U.S. Ordered to clear the "Bonus Army" from around Jenkin's Hill, the imperious MacArthur sent in tanks and troops with fixed bayonets and tear gas. He drew his chair close to mine - there was a pause in the conversation - I availed myself of it arose and walked to the opposite side of the room...He knew my resolution not to speak to him except on business, and he ought not to have thrust himself in my way." *


And these two men now found themselves in charge of dispensing millions of acres of land to the hundreds of speculators who had flocked to St. Ă‚ But it made it into his obituary in most of the newspapers in the English speaking world. He had been born in Germany. And thus were the wages of sin for what today would be called "Gifters". * And in case you are thinking that these are dusty historical footnotes, a couple of years ago, in San Antonio, Texas, Ted Roberts, attorney at law, was convicted of three counts of theft for a badger scam he ran with his wife and fellow attorney, Mary Roberts. Farmers, working the best soil available, grew wheat and hops to brew beer. Jacob was betting, of course, that the price would go down, and as a board member he had the power to help that happen. Instead his mother pressured him to put on the collar.She won. The cellar dwelling Phillies won, three to zip. The losing pitcher for Chicago was their best, right hander (Old) Pete Alexander. The battle failed, but the court got the message and abruptly reversed itself on several subsequent decisions. And as Jacob fastidiously signed over each share required to fill the options, he was also diluting Erie Stock so that, come morning, the stock took a nose dive. * The wizards had been so intent on cutting off the limb that Jacob had climbed out on, that they failed to notice they were on the same limb. Knox at 7 pounds 10 shillings, for a profit to Hare of three pounds ten shillings - a small fortune for men such as Burke and Hare.The market for selling dead bodies had been fairly steady in Edinburgh since the school of Surgeons had combined with the Royal College of Physicians to form the world famous University Faculty of Medicine in 1726.Dr. They flashed the legal papers, ushered the workers out and padlocked the doors. By 4 AM the remaining would-be passengers were offering competing explanations as to why salvation had not yet arrived. He served two presidents, and one of his enemies, President John Quincy Adams, said that those two chief executives were merely, "...the tools of Amos Kendall, the ruling mind of their dominion." * Amos was tall, thin, asthmatic and prematurely white haired. That is my field of expertise. * I saw graphics flash across my monitor I had no idea were hiding inside my mystery box. Even Abraham Lincoln once jumped out a window to avoid giving a majority party a quorum. The very concept of a quorum was created to prevent a super majority from drowning out the voice of a substantial minority. The verdict was guilty for both defendants, delivered by even more wittnesses to the murder. As King he was responsible for the economic collapse of medieval France. swept into the Front's Brooklyn offices, arresting nine men and seizing 15 bombs, 18 cans of cordite, dynamite, fuses, incendiary chemicals, 16 rifles, 750 rounds of machine gun ammo and "one long sword". A Mali proverb observed, "Salt comes from the north, gold from the south...but the word of God and the treasures of wisdom are only to be found in Timbuktu." *


The city was famous for its libraries. You know what? You can't do that, no matter how many voters may want to believe that you can, you can't. It is not merely a case of the cure being worse than the disease. And then, because there wasn't anybody left still doing business in France to steal from, Philip began seizing Church property. But the catch was that Carl Browne knew who the Great Unknown was. When Boss Tom died in January of 1945, his funeral was well attended, and the only thing that changed about Missouri politics was the names on the ballots. ******************************************************************************************* "If you can't convince them, confuse them."

Lawyers and 40 deputized men were dispatched to the tannery (above) on Tuesday morning, March 13, 1860. He discovered that the bodies had not been moved. Then came 1961 and one of the greatest finishes in 500 history. * Eddie and A.J. He just wasn't lucky. He was plump and ruddy faced and usually had a drink close at hand. There he was arrested loitering near Buckingham Palace, and was returned to his ship under arrest. Join the John Birch Society, help us fill the ranks. And since the magazine had a nice little side business going selling American flags to schools (their goal was to have one in every classroom) Francis thought that a pledge for this special occasion would be an inexpensive way to increase the sale of flags. Behind him came the financial supporter and ideological inspiration for the march, Jacob Coxey, ridding in a Pheaton buggy, drawn by a matched pair of magnicent white horses. 19221939 ******************************************************************************** In 1916 Tom Pendergast had himself appointed to the leadership of the Jackson County Democratic Party, headquartered in a two story yellow brick building (above, left) at 1908 Main Street. His employer explained that Edward was fascinated with the Queen and often spoke of her, always respectfully. Edward had entered the Palace, it developed, by coating himself with bear grease and squeezing through a crack in a marble arch by the Palace's front door. Samuel Pepys was there for the anticlimax. Will was persuaded to sign his nephew's commission.

See, according to chapter ten in the Qur'an, God gave Jonah a dangerous job, and to avoid the assignment he jumped ship for someplace else. Sill the jury was willing to believe that Vanzetti was guilty. The defense attorney did such a bad job that modern readers of the transcripts suspect he might have even thrown the case. But that would have made the war even more unpopular than it already was. The stench of alcohol filled the tunnel. And just about every editor in America agreed, it would make a really good story .


"The north and south winds met where the house stood, and made it the exact center of the cyclone.

Barnum's traveling circus. Next,Ă‚ a prostitute named Mary Paterson and a woman begger named Effie made their contributions; ten pounds apiece. And the presence of that third party set the entire state on fire. * This alliance of destitute farmers was the political response to decades of corruption and corporate influence peddling, and a drought not equaled until the dust bowl of the 1930's. But no matter how profligate the wealthy might be in their spending, what the nation needed in the spring of 1894 was more consumers, more members of a working middle class, with disposable income. And it worked, for awhile. But the following year, no concentration of pepper spray was enough to discourage the bucktoothed little omnivours. Overnight they had confidence again in Charles Ponzi. And after thinking the thing over carefully, Mr. It seems so important to me to remember that no matter how traumatic or shocking the news may seem on any given morning, it has always happened before.

Astor's "genius" was that he saw the American fur trade was not about fur, it was about dope. See, post-revolutionary war American didn't have enough customers to support a native industry. Just who were these senators that Daugherty claimed would support Harding at the Republican Convention, come June? * When Daugherty refused to take the bait, the reporters suggested he must be expecting Harding to win the nomination in some hotel back room with a small group of political managers, "reduced to pulp by the inevitable vigil and travail" of a deadlocked convention. And the rhyme known as "Burke and Hare" has a similar history, just a bit more bloody.Try to imagine little red headed girls playing jump rope, keeping time by chanting this Scottish ditty, "Up the close and down the stair, In the house with Burke and Hare, Burke's the butcher, Hare's the thief, Knox the man who buys the beef. Will was probably even educated in the King's New School, a sort of junior college for civil service types.

So on Friday, July 30th, 1920, they began to draw away the curtain, slowly, like a magician unveiling a disappearing elephant. There were just 18 of them.

And the court, sitting with Justice Field abstaining, decided "...any duty of the marshal to be derived from the general scope of his duties under the laws of the United States, is 'a law' within the meaning of this phrase." In short, defending judges is the duty of officers of the court, and does not require a specific statute. It is to Amos's credit that, when the war finally came, he publicly supported the Union cause, which, for a Democrat who was unending in his criticism of the Lincoln administration, was not an easy thing to do.The amazing Amos Kendall died on November 12, 1869, at sixty years of age.

But whether she did or not, when Terry's body was examined later by local police, no weapons were found. The partners had agreed to hold their stock until Norwich topped $90 a share. John Boyd was officially declared the official governor of the state of Nebraska. And when President Jefferson (above) had Burr arrested for treason, Wilkerson became his chief witness against Burr. And until the last moment, he was going to lead it himself, since he did not trust Wilkerson, and since the next in the line of command, General Wade Hampton, refused to work under Wilkerson. An eyeless clerk, his feet blown off, tried to crawl away." Joe Kennedy, who would be the father of a President and three senators, was thrown to the floor of the stock exchange by the blast wave.

He helped Morse create and run the International Telegraph Company (it would later become


International Telephone and Telegraph). He was living lavishly while average Americans suffered (a gross exaggeration). And just when it looked like this absurdity would be the place where reality could intervene, he followed it with a naked power grab by removing all pretense of an economic motive, and simply stripped the workers of all rights..

And thus ended one of the most amazing murder cases in England history, in which at least four people hanged, and two reputations were destroyed, because they helped to murder a man no body even liked. And isn't it amazing that Planet X became the official IX planet in the solar system? You don't often get to use Roman Numerals in a joke.Ah, but things were about to get even more amazing.

He died in 1958, while a Republican occupied the White House. That million dollar hit to his personal finances was huge, but in the days before the Securities and Exchange Commission, and their meddlesome regulations, tens of millions of dollars in investments could vanish with a mere whiff of rumor against the reputation of one man.

Mr. He must have heard of their impending deaths and of their executions.Still, the old man did not return for two years. But why did he not return sooner? Why return at all? And why did John Perry tell such wild tales? Why did he send his own mother and brother to the gallows? Why did he not recant until the last moments of his life?It remains a mystery. Buildings shook 78 miles distant. Then I thought, as the country was so green and beautiful, I would call it the Emerald City; and to make the name fit better I put green spectacles on all the people, so that everything they saw was green." "But isn't everything here green?" asked Dorothy. "No more than in any other city," replied Oz; "but when you wear green spectacles, why of course everything you see looks green to you."Â

Born into poverty, his mother was active in the Methodist Church until her death, when Jay was 10 years old. A gale was approaching. How could you not admire a man who could write, "A well adjusted person is one who makes the same mistake twice without getting nervous" That kind of self knowledge belies the life of a boy who was abandoned by his father at the age of ten, at twelve watched his mother die in the bed next to him, and was then adopted by a cousin who shortly thereafter committed suicide. Harding might have said that giving a job interview while standing in his pajamas might qualify as an embarrassing moment, but he did not. He was tall for the age - about 5.8", smart, competent and dedicated. Instead he and Stanton came up with a plan of their own. As proof, I present to you a German flute maker who made his fortune in England, and doubled it by investing in the American fur trade; John Jacob Astor (above).

I think the best memorial for those unnamed heroes of the spring of 1894 was provided by a bar fly in New York City named Feeb, who composed and preformed songs for his supper. She tried to make dirty, foul Pittsburg a home. The bronze age was late in coming to the Baltic Sea. Women and children were ruthlessly ridden down...All this time Coxey had been struggling through the crowd toward the central steps of the capital....Before anyone knew it Coxey was bounding up the East front...He was up to the tenth step before he was recognized. It was not uncommon for a raiding constable to discover "a woman sitting beside the fire finishing a pile of counterfeits with a knife and file, while her husband occupied himself with hot flasks and other coining tools."

And to seal the deal, Hamilton read a telegram from Governer Landon promising to support the anti-New Deal platform.

Coxey to remember that "if from 10,000 to 50,000 men can intimidate Congress to do one thing, then another 10,000 to 50,000 men can intimidate them to do another thing--which leads to anarchy." Of course some might say that was almost by definition not anarchy, but democracy. And like a latter day "Lost", Jules Vernes' 1875 novel, "The Survivors of the Chancellor" told an episodic science fiction adventure story of a British passanger ship, lost at sea. The most popular song of the day consisted of the repeated lyrics, "Carve dat possum, carve dat possum, children. Carve dat possum, carve him to de heart."

After all, Senator Sharon was dead, which, David Terry argued, had rendered any court decisions concerning the California divorce case an "ineffective, inoperative, unenforceable pronunciamento." And by simply ignoring the existence of the Federal Court order vacating the will, he avoided dealing with the charges that the will had been forged. The museum went bust in 1899, and the owner "reimagined" the space as a public meeting center. * It was into this den of iniquity that some 2,000 delegates and their alternates marched on Tuesday June, 8th, 1920, sixty years after Republicans had first met in Chicago to nominate Senator William Seward for President, but instead chose Abraham Lincoln.

Their verdict was that Daniel Sickles was temporarily insane when he murdered his good friend, Phillip Key. They are still there.

The prosecutor spoke of the "echoes of the church bells" still lingering in the air" while Daniel pulled the trigger over and over. The other was Robert Good, Stella Ferrucci's husband. * Their intent was to scare the judge, maybe even rough him up a little and let him know what would happen to him if he did not play ball with Diamond. Besides, increasing taxes and government investment in infrastructure could not revive a depressed economy. And no one at any of the Judges' usual hangouts remembered seeing him. They promptly disinherited their daughter. And those now struck Phineas. It came down gradually, and I was not hurt a bit. Ahh, those Germans. In March of 1914, there were rumors that Daniel had finally died. His reputation as a murderous hot head did nothing to prevent him from being elected to first the Alabama legislature and then, in 1844, to the U.S. The budgets increases were far too small and it was far too short a war. He had been one of them. C, an obese, white caucasian male, who appeared approximately 65 years old, but who could not accurately state his age, presented to my family practice office with complaints of generalized aches and pains, sore red eyes, depression, and general malaise. He was an ex-circus barker and a current patent medicine "faker" named A.B.P. That whimper was the end of Coxey's Army of 1894.

Why would any owner suffer such an expense? Perhaps the answer and the ultimate core of the attack squirrel conspiracy was revealed when Finnish baritone Esa Ruuttunen (above), perhaps best known for his powerful performance as Telramund, was viciously assaulted while on his way to rehearsals of the new Finnish opera "Kaarmeen hetki (Hour of the Serpent) at the Helsinki Opera House. Those papers had gone into the two locked brief cases he had left the office with that afternoon. And when Craig saw my internal porch light flicker, he stopped trying to explain what he was doing to my machine. He investigated and discovered a large and intricate "drey", or squirrel's nest, constructed from the tattered and masticated shards of dozens of miniature American flags. . He was described by the author Charles Dickens who interviewed him as " of a most repulsive appearance; but he was unconscious of this defect as he affected an air of great consequence".

In fact, ideologically, the John Birch Society was (and is) a sort of thinking man's Klu Klux Klan, where the KKK remains a sort of the idiot's version of the "Tea Baggers". In 1966 the New York Times described the JB Society as "...the most successful and 'respectable' radical right organization in the country", which, if you think about it, is the equivalent of being named Miss Congeniality in a mental institution; she even brings smiles to the invisible people. His shock, and probably anger at this previously unknown (to him) interloper who was questioning his dream, must have been overwhelming. Four men were shot, others were badly beaten, and according to the New York Herald, "...those who did not escape were violently flung from the windows and doors..." As Jay would later boast, ""I can hire one-half of the working class to kill the other half." The courts would eventually throw Jay Gould out of the tannery, but by then he had shifted his operations to a place more suited to his nature; the unregulated economic free-for-all that was Wall Street. While North and South battled over slavery, Jay Gould formed his own brokerage firm, Smith, Gould and Martin, and made the acquaintance of James "Big Jim" Fisk, who had made his fortune smuggling southern cotton through the Federal armies and selling Confederate War Bonds. And the Federal District had gone from less than 1 million residents in 1940 to 2,100,000 in 1943. Then, as the Imo backed away, the scrapping of crumpled metal against torn metal, threw sparks. Only then could you travel by rail all the way from sea to shinning sea. Heavy rains in June drove the marchers to higher ground and this time they moved to Roslyn, Virginia. They got out of the market. After all, you can't pledge allegiance to the flag unless you have a flag. * His pledge, published in the September 8th, 1892 issue of the magazine (above), was just 23 words long and could be recited in less than 15 seconds; "I pledge allegiance to my flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." On October 29th the pledge was first recited in classrooms across America, and at the opening of the Chicago Columbia Exposition. He raided British ports. They marched into town, with flags flying and drums pounding.

On race day, driving a roadster, Eddie started far back in the field and finished third. So, after the debacles at Memphis and New Orleans, the Confederacy decided to turned Vicksburg into "The Gibraltar of the Confederacy." On paper it looked simple- the city lay just south of a thuge "S" bend in the river. In fact they were more determined than ever to put the little Italian out of business. Parnell estimated the harvest had cost the English government "one shilling for every turnip." * Boycott left Ireland with his family on December 1, 1880, traveling in the back of a miltary ambulance and escorted by soldiers.

Police departments around the nation still have squads of officers assigned to uncovering fraud and cheating scams, named "Bunko Squads". A hundred fifty people attended Daniel's victory celebration. They saddled their horses at a nearby stable. His public manners were "accommodating and popular" - in short he was a politician and ambitious.

In the end the Americans would steal their land and ship these Christians across the Mississippi. *  In Big Town Lewis and Neeley picked up the Natchez Trace, the "Devils Backbone" trail that wound north-eastward through the dark and ominous forest to Meriwether Lewis' final destination. - 30 * NEXT WEDNESDAY ; AMERICAN ARCHETYPE PART SIX * IF YOU GO INTO THE WOODS TODAY * FRIDAY: FOOD FIGHT The Role of Munchies in History APRIL FOOLS DAY I don't approve of practical jokes. And on March 25, 1960 Oliver's morally certain head was finally buried somewhere near the chapel of Sidney Sussex College, in Cambridge, England. After that Stark was through in Missouri politics. The worst blizzard in ten years buried the shocked port in several feet of snow and condemned untold injured to death by freezing. * Every year, the city of Halifax donates a Christmas tree to the city Boston, as thanks for the assistance which was rushed to them in the weeks after the explosion. She was a noted baker and her pies were much sought after. He must have been close enough to Chipping Camden to have heard, in the eight months between his disappearance and the trial of his accused murderers. Wages were stuck while prices inflated. And Henri was green with envy. Now, there might be some who feel my tone slights the victims of such attacks; baloney. Eric Idle has described cows as the "...librarians of the animal world; mild by day, wild by night." And John Webster, a professor of animal husbandry at Bristol University in England, describes cows as "gay nymphomaniacs". The other knocked him down and restrained him. He actually made it to South America and back to England in 1843. Hamilton was his political enemy. Althea's alimony had already been reduced, from $2,500 a month, to $500. Their average age was 31 years old and on average they had been unempoyed for five months. But a tip led the lawmen to Dr. Timothy Pickering (above) was a hot headed right-wing nut the President was forced to include in his cabinet


to appease the ultra-conservatives who threatened to tear his administration apart. History and many newspapers would record it as the "Black Day of the Indiana Assembly." * The following Monday the triumphant Assembly dispatched a note to the battered Senate Democrats, that they would have not further correspondence with the upper house. At times they climbed high peaks, apparently in search of landmarks....The party became cross and quarrelsome. By law, Mayor Maverick could not refuse to rent the room to anyone. But the Niger immediately turns its back on the ocean and instead flows eastward. We have E-mail, and I-phones and twitter and face-book and every other pseudonymous instantaneous electronic communication device which, with apologies to Socrates, proves that a life under punctuated is a life not worth being self-obsessed about. Says his modern-day biographer, Jan Bondeson, "He didn't have any children and never wanted anything to do with women, apart from his beloved queen."Though out most of his life, Edward Jones remained infamous for those nights he spent in Buckingham Palace with Victoria's underwear in his pants. His funeral was one of the best attended in the history of "E" town, and his monument on the rolling slopes of the Elizabethtown Cemetery is one of the tallest. (Good luck hope you enjoy the ride.) Professor Bond collected and cataloged rocks from the floor of the Atlantic Ocean. He originated, or was consulted in advance, upon every great measure."Before Jackson (above), a President would look to his cabinet for advice. Some years later she moved to London where she took to the stage, as a chorus girl in the hit musical, "The Messenger Boy". Virginia Le Valette. By the middle of July both Palmer and J.Edgar Hoover, his man at the Justice Department's Investigation Bureau, had both been reduced to laughing stocks. They weren't even there. The fifth shot misfired, and witnesses managed to restrain Daniel from delivering a 'coup de grace.' Not that it mattered; Phillip Key would soon be dead. He sold them all, over and over again. General John C. Terry was thus surrounded by friendly officials, who arrested Judge Field and Marshal Neagle for murder. With Sachs....it didn't make a damn if his car was having a bad day or not. A bright, brief shinning light had been snuffed out by greed and stupidity wearing a crown. The sugar is converted into alcohol and the yeast farts cabon dioxide, until all the sugar is consumed and then the yeast dies. His name was Clarence W. I believe that history is running on an endless loop. It had not happened. Phillip, who until that instant was unaware the affair had been discovered, grabbed for the gun, and the two men struggled for a moment while a dozen witnesses gaped in amazement. By the time Peaches worked the scam, the bridge had been devalued down to $200, and the very idea of selling the Brooklyn Bridge had become a joke. And to be honest with you, I don't think the longer version is any clearer about its meaning. The Republicans would gain strength until 1948 when it looked like they were certain to regain the White House. Roosevelt began to push for an amendment to the Constitution adding a new justice to the court every time one of the original nine justices reached 70 years of age. meeting on Friday, November 16, 1855. And to those concerned that Health Care Reform or Union busting I urge you to study the century long struggle against the railroad monopolies. According to one Republican observer the "hayseeds" envisioned the world as a combination of a Victor Hugo plot and a Baptist revival meeting. By the end of that summer unemployment nationwide had topped 10%, and mobs were raiding food warehouses. Exactly what he does with all of these surprises has not been reported, but I would advise the owner that squirrels can live anywhere from ten to twelve years. A life time of being a stinker is impressive but not enough. But again there was no classic street shoot out. To finance his addiction, Jacob owned a sandstone quarry outside of Massillon, which, by the way, carried two mortgages, the second held by his first wife, Carrie Coxey. Jacob Coxey was a visionary, and like most, sometimes he was also a bit myopic. Navy to loan him Lieutenant Jonathan Thorn, hero of the battle of Tripoli. Coxey was quoted in the papers as explaining the march this way; "Congress takes two years to vote on anything...Twenty-millions of


people are hungry and cannot wait two years to eat." On Tuesday, May 1st, 1894 perhaps 15,000 people crowded around as the Army of 500 left camp (above) for their final seven mile march on the Capital. In 1958 he started second but engine trouble put him out after 68 laps. It's a big landfill. Bring me Dr. Winfield Scott, who would one day command the army himself, suffered through this debacle and publicly described Wilkerson as "a traitor, liar, and a scoundrel." Wilkerson had him court martial-ed and sentenced to loss of pay and rank for one year. But I am dying to know what was going in her head, when she did..                    - 30  SUNDAY: TOO MANY GOVERNORS          When Governors Go Bad AMERICAN ARCHETYPE: PART TWO I can say with confidence that Meriwether Lewis was, at 35, an American hero. (Sound familiar?) Adams had permitted the rape of an American servant girl by the Russian Czar (a complete fabrication). Some returned fire. Publisher Richard Grozier and city editor Eddie Dunn had enlisted a "short, rotund powerhouse", to reinvestigate Ponzi. Two years later James Wilkerson published his memoirs, entitled "Memoirs of My Own Times." It was not a best seller. Next Ralston moved to get his money back. Grant took notice of that. First came the afternoon rains, which matched well with a level of humidity capable of inducing bread growth under the soldiers' armpits. It was the Hays Commission which gave us forty years of married couples sleeping in twin beds, no acknowledgement of drug use, no adultry in marraige without retribution, and endless stories with sacerin sweet "Hollywood" endings. And, like a lot of other bearded prospectors in the area, every summer Jacob made ends meet by working established mines for his next grubstake. How was Will able to afford a partnership in the Rose playhouse unless it was as compensation for the content he created for the company? And where did he get enough money to buy those snazzy little leotards everybody wore? * There are always other explanations and theories as to how and why Will Shakespeare could not have written all of these magnificent plays. He felt the market was about to take a downturn - which it promptly did. Phineas quickly rose to the level of foreman, and was entrusted with the dangerous job of blasting through the hard New England granite to ensure a level road bed for the rails. God sent a terrible storm to swamp the boat, and when Jonah confessed his sin to the the terrified crew, after a few moments of theological discussions, they threw the wayward prophet overboard. * That is when, in the words of the Christian hymn "...A whale came up and swallowed him whole." During the three days Jonah was inside the great fish he prayed for forgiveness, and guided by God, the fish "threw Jonah out on a bar of sand." Every year on Yom Kippur Jews read the Book of Jonah


and ask for God's forgiveness. * And now you know why Christians, Jews and Muslims have spent the last 2,000 years slaughtering each other; its because they share so many stories like this one, which differ only in the details. It seems that for all of Percival Lowell's careful calculations, and for all of Clyde Tombaugh's perseverance, and for all the power of Alvan Clark's thumb, finding Planet X right where it was supposed to be was...just a coincidence. Foyt traded the lead, lap after lap, racing wheel to wheel, first Foyt leading and then Eddie. The first letter fired Stanton (Again!). He now had $80 cash money burning a hole in his pocket. As Richard Neuberger would write, "It was a winter of famine, and they boiled their buckskin footgear and drank the fetid broth. It had ground up the rocks trying to form a planet into the asteroid belt. Clements (above). * "Lobbying, like all persuasion, is story telling....When you lobby, tell a good story. Prologues all define drama's, not comedies.The reality is that everything comes from something else, and every beginning is actually the coda for another story. As an example, Jacob Sechler Coxey came from Massillon, Ohio, a village founded by 150 Utopians, inspired by a similar effort at New Harmony, Indiana. He had uncovered the scam, and its fame had made him the first director of the United States Geological Survey. The remainder tried to scratch their survival out of the unhappy land. In Tunisia they established Carthage, and a thousand years later became the Roman Republic's worst enemy. On January 3, 2011 our winner took his oath of office, and by his behavior, a short 45 days later, he had reversed those election results. According to a PPP survey, released on February 23, 52% of voters would now vote for the other guy, Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett, who was also our prophet. But forty-five minutes later, they are all proven wrong when Dorthy received yet another missive from The Guardians, via automatic writing. * However, this missive was different. The youngest, William, who answered the door that night, recognized Gibbs and was willing to loan him a horse and wagon for an hour or so. Burke and Hare they were a pair, Killed a wife and didnae care. He was just 15. Another paper noted that of the "seventy-five stragglers" who had finished this first day, several had spent the prevous night in the local jail, and were released just before the march had begun. This trip, undertaken to settle his financial problems, was putting Lewis deeper in debt. * Before dawn, two days later, Governor Lewis and James Neelly, along with their servants, an Indian interpreter and a few Chickasaws, left the fort by horseback. He called up 25 men of the State militia under the appropriately named Captain Rhody, and the Omaha Police Department, to stand guard over his self. And thus the election of 1890 was finally decided, over a year later. * Boyd resumed his office on February 3. The postage was 15 cents.


* The public was unsettled by this mailing of children, since the percentage of child molesters amongst the population in 1914 was about the same as it is today. He then made good his twitchy nosed escape. By September 17th the forward cavalry scouts had reached the Timis River. Just two years later the ship burned at the New York docks as it was being refitted for war duty. "What da-n fool got the president to do this?" Simon barked. Long before that John Hamilton had his own reactionary reckoning. In 1937 Hamilton's wife sued him for divorce, on the grounds of "gross neglect of duty, abandonment and extreme cruelty." That same year Alf Landon had Hamilton removed as Party Chairman, as Landon tried to rebuild the party in his own Midwestern less reactionary lessidelogical image. Under Landon's non-red baiting non-FDR hating guidance the party stopped trying to overturn the New Deal and began to climb its way back. Three years later, on Wednesday September 13th, 1848 a Rutland and Burlington Railroad construction crew, headed by the 25 year-old foreman Phineas P.Gage, was preparing a road bed outside of the little mill town of Cavendish, Vermont. Or if they had ever used them.And shutting down the investigation also left unanswered another set of unpleasant questions: who was Msr. And then on December 17th The Guardians of Clarion threw Dorthy and her followers a lifeline. * In a crucial phone call, Dorthy was told that at midnight on December 20th, several pea-pod shaped space craft, each big enough to hold ten passengers, would land in the nearby suburb of Oak Park. But over time memories of Philip Arnold have shifted and every October the residents of "E"town stage the "Philip Arnold Dead Man Rolling Bed Race"- to raise money for charity, of course. And Charles Ponzi greeted them with cookies and coffee and a smile and gentle words and...cash. And he loved to go very fast * For most of human history, traveling 500 miles in a single day was the stuff of fantasy, Aladdin and his magic carpet. Gibbs had been convicted of piracy, and was the last man hanged for that crime in America - so his death was not entirely without meaning. On this night Wyatt did not seem legendary at all. * After serving in an Illinois regiment during the Civil War Wyatt became a teamster between the port of Wilmington, outside of Los Angeles, and the desert mining town of Prescott, Arizona. Then there would be a week taking delivery and paying debts and sharing profits, before moving on. There was bitterness in that description, since Jackson and Amos were intent upon dismantling the Bank of the United States and firing its president, who was Mr. But I digress again; my point is that capitalism requires a certain amount of rationalization, and profiting from the symbol of our nation is just another one. The revolution was just beginning. For some thirty years the "Captain", as his friends called him, was the most famous man in the world. The dog now had the scent and Hamilton continued to visit Maria and pay James regularly - in April, $135, in May and June, $50, in August, $200. But, it seems, every generation must relearn it on their own.


But the commission that ran the District of Columbia went even further. That project drew the pair into a partnership in a new leather tannery south of Scranton, Pennsylvania. My guess is we could be apologizing to Daisy and Bessie "auf die Ewigkeit warten", as they say in Germany, and it would make no difference because Daisy and Bessie are not particularly interested in our moo-tivations, because cows are just as conceited as we humans are. Eventually, embarrassed and frustrated, the officer shot him. Jonathan Watson, the man who had leased the site to Penn Oil, became the first oil millionaire. With that much money at stake, explained Gibbs, they were now all under suspicion for murder. After smoldering over the insult for a mile or so on the down slope, Smith rode back to the lead of the column and unloaded on the buckskinned duomo, calling him a "fat faced fake" and threatening, that if Browne ever spoke to him like that again he would "make a punching bag out of your face. This time, however, he opened an office in Titusville, helping other wildcatters negotiate leases from local farmers. (and) tended to be distracted by immediate stimuli" In addition, the patient displays "an empty euphoric effect...(and) can get unusually aggressive and tends to use puns a lot." In other words, Phineas Gage was a new gauge. But Speaker Elder was certain the actually winner had been John Powers, the candidate of Elder's People's Independent Party. It never failed. The next question is, of course, why have cows got magnetism? Cows are not migratory, but they once may have been. She was also attempting to seduce the head of the Egyptian Treasury, which was called The White House. The date would henceforth be known as "Black Friday" (at least until October of 1929). (Adams had bought a pool table and a chess set). It was no accident then that the Nuevo-rich Calvinist wool merchants in the Cotswold created a belief in predestination - the certainty that you are wealthy and successful because God has predestined you to be wealthy and successful before you had even been born. Talk about a world in which your problem doesn't exist, lay out the existence of your problem, and why the target is the key to the solution." Milo Public Affairs. In 1963 Eddie was running fourth before, on lap 181, he spun out in oil laid down by Parnelli's leaking roadster. Sharon sued, charging Althea with attempted blackmail, and alleging that the marriage contract was a fraud. Hubby had to move out of the country to avoid his other creditors, but he left Marie behind,  as a sort of payment on account for Sainte-Croix. By 1825 she was a spinster approaching forty, and her rose had withered a bit. The complexities involved stagger the imagination. The safe in the backyard was plowed over. He had extensive ecchymoses, abrasions, lacerations, and first-degree burns on his head, arms, legs, and back, which I believe to be caused mainly by trauma experienced during repeated chimney descents and falls from his sleigh. we come to remind the Congress here assembled of the declaration of a United States Senator, "that for a quarter of a century the rich have been growing richer, the poor poorer, and that by the close of the present century the middle class will have disappeared as the struggle for existence becomes fierce and relentless." That was what all he had wanted to say. In the wake of Coxey's Army, ex-President William Howard Taft was asked what a man with a family was to do when there were no jobs. It was the human mind which mistook blind luck for a deep cosmological insight, just as the swelling in the blood vessels behind Percival Lowell's eye had built the canals of Mars. * It makes me wonder how we can ever really be certain we are certain of anything. Political journalists and writer want-a-be's do not count. Instead the justices held an immediate huddle and Chief Justice Cobb announced that the weighty issues of freedom and public order and good government were irrelevant. So what happens now to the Republican wave that was sweeping America, as the Pooh-vernor's legacy subsides into a generation of vicious recall elections, smashed


political relationships, betrayed trusts and bitter anger? As was carved in Sir Christopher Wren's gravestone, "Si moumentum requiris, circumspice.", translated as "If you seek his monument, look around you." Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Scott Kevin.Walker, the closest thing to Julius Caesar this year.  - 30 -FRIDAY: BEING CERTAINTelescopes as Mirrors TOO MANY GOVERNORS I am surprised that nobody got lynched in Nebraska during the winter of 1890-91. I think he was trying to make a point but he didn't get that either. "Farmers were thus forced to grow (not food for their own tables, but )cash crops like tobacco or cotton, to pay their debts." And even if, "...a farmer who found a desired piece of land became a squatter by clearing and planting it with the hope of one day purchasing the acres he had improved... And Grant understood intuitively that all that mattered was to occupy the Vicksburg bluffs and permanently cut the rail line that touched the Mississippi. He was a skilled officer who had been given limited means (40,000 men scattered between Vicksburg and Jackson, Mississippi) to defend an objective of unlimited importance. "I might have stood there always if you had not come along," he said; "so you have certainly saved my life. Instead, on March 13, 1660 the Burgesses, members of the Virginia colonial assembly, decided to take a step back to the future by appointing "the honorable Sir William Berkeley" as their Governor, again. Eight years before "Will" as his friends called him, had been a popular Governor. "Judge," she demanded, "are you going to take the responsibility of ordering me to deliver up that marriage contract?" Barely pausing in his recitation, Judge Field ordered, "Remove that woman from the courtroom. His last words, before the blade severed the rest of his head from his body, were, "Mort à la société bourgeoise! Vive l'anarchie!" The translation would be, "Death to the Bourgeoisie! Long live Anarchy!" Even his last words turned out to have been ironic. The irony developed because, of the millions who were outraged by Auguste's departing utterance, the most significant turned out to have been another nobody anarchist fanatic, this one named Emile Henri, a 21 year old who was consumed with envy. As Republicans today might note, this action only deepened the depression, and insured that in 1840 the Whigs elected William Henry Harrison as President. * Amos (above) tried to go back to running newspapers. Still, it was a long train ride when you could "see the beast" a lot closer to home and save the 35 cents. Moore offered to swallow his insulted pride for a mere $2,000, but the Russian chose instead to call the police. Now, on February 21st, 1868, the President handed General Thomas two letters. This would prove to be such an outrageous power grab, a Federal court would declare it unconstitutional in 1892 However, the savvy Gray knew that the voters would take their revenge much sooner than the courts. * So, in the summer of 1886, Grey convinced his Lieutenant Governor, Mahlon Manson. Cost for the trip was 17 cents. So Marie signed herself into a convent in Liege, Belgium.This placed the pious nuns running the convent in a moral bind. The passengers were put in local hotels for the night while mechanics tracked down the Texas squirrel bound for the Far East. One commentator described him as having a "...gift for gab, lust for life, and the pluck to take great calculated risks." And his life reads like a comic book adventure hero.


* During the American Civil War Paul joined the U.S. She received this terminal revelation via a letter from a complete stranger - as in a stranger from the planet Clarion. In fact it was from their bosses and the Republican Party, warning the workers that if Roosevelt were re-elected, come January they would all suffer a 1% pay reduction. This prompted the head of the Social Security Board, a life long Republican, to issue an immeidate response, asserting that ""Any political message in a worker's pay envelope is coercion. And they were all the daughters of powerful families. * In addition, Tey had considerable support from the bureaucracy which maintained the harem. Edgar Hoover claimed that "The Front" was plotting to blow up a Jewish newspaper, a movie theatre showing Russian films, a Post Office, and the Federal Reserve Bank, and thus spark a revolution (Oh, and it was also alledged they wanted to assassinate President Roosevelt). For the price of a full night's stay, a guest could sleep in the Shoulder Room, the Throat Room, the Stomach Room, or any of the other 27 bedrooms. The fact is not so. The timing was stupid. They see nothing wrong in the rule that to the victor belong the spoils of the enemy." President Jackson himself argued, "In a country where offices are created solely for the benefit of the people, no one man has any more intrinsic right to official station than another." The President innocuously described this conversion of government into plunder merely as the "rotation in office". And maybe that was what infected Bob, and turned him into a shlimazel.. * As the son of Abraham, it was inevitable that Bob Lincoln would be drawn into Republican politics, but he resisted as long as he could - late again. And when the expedition returned to St. And he did later go into private practice with the prosecutor. With the puncturing of his inventions, and with the help of his lawyer Mr. We are fore-armed, though." That belligerent mood was now general in the chamber. "Born and educated in America," he wrote,"I embraced its cause in the last revolution, and remained throughout faithful to its interest, until its triumph over its enemies: This occurrence has now rendered my services useless, discharged me of my pledge, dissolved my obligations, even those of nature, and left me at liberty, after having fought for her happiness, to seek my own; circumstances and the policies of the United States having made it impossible for me to obtain this desired end under its Government, I am resolved to seek it in Spain."That ought to have been carved on his tombstone.- 30 -WEDNESDAY: AMERICAN ARCHETYPE; PART THREEBoom And Bust - It's the American Way HALL OF MIRRORS I think it profound that all telescopes involve mirrors. I have had nothing to eat or drink all day." Now it was Stanton's turn to be magnanimous. Where would a lowly commoner get money for such a trip? And why would such a man suddenly want to travel to a country where he could not speak the language? Sir Walter eventually tracked down William in Holland and had him followed closely for over two years. Mr. And that is why, on April 17, 1863, Grant sent Colonel Benjamin H. The remaining 1% of voters split their support between James Ferguson of the American Party, William Wesely Cox, of the Socialist Labor Party, and Robert MaCauley, representing the Single Tax Party. Enlisting Burke's aid, a weight was substituted for the deceased in his coffin. He plastered Manhattan from the Battery to the Bronx with the word "OK" until the denizens were seeing it in their sleep. So as the sod busters plowed across Kansas they insisted the state restrict the rail heads for Texas cattle drives further and further from their farms.


In 1876 the demarcation line was moved to the 100th meridian, which made the town on the north bank of the Are-Kansas River, the new "Queen of the cattle towns", the 'Wickedest Little City in America', "The Beautiful, Bibulous Babylon of the Frontier": Dodge City, Kansas. * Like the other ten to fifteen cowboys in his crew, George Hoyt had just ended two months of hard, dusty, dangerous and monotonous work. What was not noticed at the time, was the fatal flaw in the logic of "live" parcel post. * The path to Parcel Post ad nauseam was first made visible on the morning of February 19, 1914, when Mrs. So much money was being made there, that the optimistic little town became known locally as the Port of Massillon. But even Francis could not resist tampering with perfection. But more importantly, he moved to improve the "efficiency" of government. But if James thought he might put "the touch" on Governor Lewis, he was quickly dissuaded. * On Wednesday, September 27, Lt. None of the criminals was insane enough to follow the fanatics. And then in 1662, wonder of wonders, the victim, William Harrison, walked back into to the village of Chipping Camden, certainly alive and allegedly well.When questioned the old man (he was now seventy-two) told a murkey tale of being set upon, stabbed, kidnapped, hustled aboard a ship, and sold in a Turkish slave market. Shepard, sitting atop a Redstone rocket, assured his controllers that, "Everything is A-OK." And because the American space program performed in public, and the entire world was listening with rapt fascination, this anachronistic sliver of American English slang instantly became the first phrase of modern international slang. Everything was indeed "OK." People the world over, who do not speak or hear English, know and use OK. In fact he saw it as his personal obligation to turn the bubbly into a dull flat dark wine. They erected a canvas screen around their camp, and charged admission to stare at the unemployed men cooking their meals and tending to their daily needs, even selling their hard-tack biscuits as souvenirs to the gawkers. Navy on May 1, 1862. To bring the play to a close, Shakespeare is even forced to induce magic to convert Antonio to pacifism, but that is a dramatist's trick. He told them, "...Vicksburg is the key. Under the Normans it became sheep country.In 1340, in Chipping Camden, the wool merchants were already so wealthy they built a hall on the High Street, using the honeycolored "Cotswold stone" as facing. They were preparing the way, they said, for the return of Jesus Christ, whom they intended to crown the next King of England. Nash. Even more depressing was that in the reality, women voted like men, and less by 3 to 2; "every known instance of available data in the United States has revealed a lower rate of turnout or registration among women as compared to men...the difference between male and female turnout is in the neighborhood of 20 percentage points..." Of course the news media of 1920 were no more eager to let go of their much ballyhooed image of the election than they are at present. In the election on November 4, 1890, the Republicans and Democrats spilt seven seats in the state senate and forty-six seats in the house between them. Still, his crimminal career didn't really get started until, at 26, he passed the New York State bar exam. Overnight the streets were cleaned, sweeping up the blood and the evidence and carting it away. The next morning the Stock Exchange opened on time. So as they had every year, thousands of these ill-informed peasants journeyed to Paris during the last week of March and on what they thought


was New Year's Eve, gathered in Bastille Square to say bonjour to 1565 and watch the guillotine drop on 1566. This second shot hit Key in the thigh. It woould be Governor Alf Landon, known affectionately to the faithful as "The Kansas Coolidge". Abandoned, Thayer surrendered the offices, and Boyd moved in. Curtain on Act One. The curtain now rises on Act Two. On July 30, 1676 the boy General published a "Declaration of the People". The day he called them back to work Boycott also informed the tenants that their wages were being cut by almost half. It began to snow. The authorities banished Samuel from Scotland for seven years. As O. Thirteen days later, Edward was back in the Palace. But when Robert and Frances started planning to divorce her husband so they could marry, Thomas went ape. Marie didn't seem to mind the arrangement, and neither did Sainte-Croix. His trial with Sacco would not begin until the summer of 1921. Spotting his intended target, the French President, standing on the Chamber floor, Auguste revealed and armed his 1 quart sauce pan. On February 10th, 1840 she was married Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, and within a few months she was pregnant. The governor immediately ordered Justice Field, a member of the Supreme Court, released without bail, before his arrest became a "burning disgrace" to California. And that may be so. After Lazarus, the President had also heard from the National Retail Dry Goods Association, as well as executives of Gimbels and Lord & Taylor. I guess you could call Craig the man of silicone, ecept that sounds a little weird. * I do not twitter, I do not tweet. But as Chennault explained in a July 18, 1946 phone call with Tommy, "This thing would be a great money-maker if we didn't carry a pound of UNRRA cargo." So they didn't. She called the police, and two patrol officers responded. Those who still had a job saw their wages fall by almost half, at the same time that the price of food went up. Overland transportation costs now made American fur a luxury item in Europe. The following year, Wallace Hardison died in Sun Valley, California, when his car was struck by a train. Five weeks later, while William was confined in the pestilent Newgate prison (above) awaiting shipment, he escaped. He's the actor, probably best known as star of the BBC series "I, Claudius", who has officially signed on with a group trying to sell the idea that William Shakespeare did not write the plays of William Shakespeare. So the Bretton Woods accords, presided over by Keynes, tied all of the world's monetary systems (the pound, the franc, the yen) to the American dollar, because each and every ounce of gold in America's vaults was officially represented by 35 dollars . After Roosevelt took America off the Gold Standard, Coughlin campaigned strongly for substitution of the Silver Standard. Their decision was announced by Chief Justice Fuller: "Manifestly the nationality of the inhabitants of territory acquired by conquest or cession becomes that of the government under whose dominion they pass...The judgment of the supreme court of Nebraska is reversed..." It was that troublesome old 14th Amendment again, this time upheld in an 8 to one decision, issued on January 2nd, 1892. * Boyd resumed his office on February 3rd of 1892. As proof I give you the life of the "fearless frogman", Paul Boyton, the Victorian era's Esther Williams and a newspaper editor's dream. C. Each year more and more of the crop was consumed by the moldy blight. And this time we (the United States) ain't got the gold, so we ain't making the rules. And then there was the river, which even today - after almost two centuries of vast public works - remains a twisting, tortuous and argumentative stream. And that made John Thayer the original "birther". *


Indeed Boyd had been born in Ireland in 1834. The postmaster's decision was just one of the myriad of compromises which brought on the American Civil War, and certainly not the most important one.

We don't know what Victoria felt when she heard the news. Reason eventually prevailed. Thus the curtain finally fell on the career of an American priest who wanted to be a politician. This bitter, hate spewing little man who had pledged his life in service of the "Prince of Peace" died in well deserved obscurity in 1979. Abraham Lincoln tried to explain the importance of Vicksburg to those celebrating the capture of Memphis, Tennessee on June 6, 1862.

A Jonah is cursed, and he drags his curse around with him, rubbing it off on unsuspecting victims who are drowned because God is actually trying to punch the ticket of the guy in next stateroom.

And upon its opening, on April 13, 1943, the centerpiece statue was painted plaster. And despite all that energy pounding on his own front door and demanding admittance, Warren G. And like any good mid-westerner, even when speaking clearly he didn't blow his own horn very much. Mr. Phillip's father, Frances Scott Key, had been so familiar with a certain popular drinking ditty (so difficult to sing that it was used as an 18th century sobriety test), that on the fly he converted it into our national anthem, translating "And swear by old Styx, that we long shall entwine, the myrtle of Venus and Bacchus' vine" into "Oh, say, does that star spangled banner yet wave, Ore the land of the free and the home of the brave." Phillip was forty-two year old widower at the time, with six children, and "the handsomest man in all Washington society", according to Mrs. The railroad was at least a hundred miles away, he said." The party could barely contain their greed, and wasted little time making camp before they began their search for jewels. And yet Herbert still had hopes he could engineer a come back. No matter how hard he looked. The river began to fall Friday afternoon..." That Saturday, February 21, 1891, one of Waltz's neighbors found the old man shivering in the ruins of his home, crouched atop his soaked bed. To his other clients, corporate, municipal and state governments, he was just the cost of doing business. I'm supposed to be a Great Wizard.""And aren't you?" she asked.Ă‚ "Not a bit of it, my dear; I'm just a common man."Ă‚ "You're more than that," said the Scarecrow, in a grieved tone; "you're a humbug."Ă‚ "Exactly so!" declared the little man, rubbing his hands together as if it pleased him. It was a bad time for a fight, so of course they had one. As they reached the peak the Great Unknown Smith - who was mounted this day - rode back to the commissary wagons to grab a snack. The oath now reads "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisable, with liberty and justice for all". And once a beachcomber had discovered Mexican eights rolling in the surf, and was joined by hundreds of others combing the sand, there was no way of proving where the crazy eights had come from, the stolen caches or the surf. a mechanic, a nuts and bolts man". Key was living proof of the old adage about fruit never falling very far from the sapling. Tom immediately hired two hundred new employees, all loyal goats, as Pendergast supporters were called.

So you see, Harold, there is life after death, or at least life after Judgment Day. Jereboam then cut the conversation short by thrusting a dagger into Solomon's neck, severing his aorta. And then Walker returned to his endless platitudes. On some of the better looking leases, Lyman waved his fee in exchange for a share of any oil found. He was unable to swim. Ce n'est pas tragique, c'est le plus absurde. Auguste's trial was brief. "Thus", said Judge Bayard Paine forty-five years later, "tragedy was

The insurance company replied that they would be willing to make a generous settlement, which might not leave the brothers filthy rich, but at least they would be free from worry of future legal entanglements. He took up the search for the the last great mystery in the night sky, the powerful conundrum of Planet X. * According to Percival's own mathematics, there was something very odd about the planets Neptune and Uranus. Richards, who received just 68,878 votes. Empty pockets turned inside out were called "Hoover Flags". Still the government managed to overreact.

I can get no workmen to do anything, and my ruin is openly avowed..." * Harpers Weekly Illustrated News for December 18, 1880, recorded what happened next. But tenor and ringer was John Brownrigg, who possessed a fatal combination of a conscious and stupidity, which caused him to first commit a crime and then to confess it unbidden to a complete stranger. * Perhaps it was the warm food, or the hot rum or perhaps it was the flames of purgatory which drove John Brownrigg to draw innkeeper Samuel Leonard aside and spill his tale on that stormy afternoon of November 24, 1830. He was followed by Carl Browne, mounted on a white stallion, and bedecked in his buckskin jacket and a huge western hat. The fortress was called Bada Vida, or Grandma Vida, because it had been a border fort since before the Romans. Does any of this sound familar? * Ramses III tried to reduce his expenses by replacing his bureaucrats and large parts of the army with slaves, supplied by independent contractors, a practice in current vogue with the American government. And just two years later he was dead, in an isolated hostel just over the border of Tennessee, shot twice and with knife cuts across his throat. * Before the march over the Rocky Mountains, before he even served as the personal aide to the President, Lewis exhibited all the indications of suffering with a mild form of asperger syndrome.

I've got to give Harold Camping credit for being original. One biographer has described him as a man with multiple personalities: "A jurist, a professor, a Tammany Hall stalwart, and a family man." He was also "Good Time Joe", with a penchant for liquor and lovely available showgirls. In 1932 the average American ate just two pounds of turkey a year. Fontaine, who wrote "The Washington Tragedy". One also claimed to subsist only on oatmeal. And almost no one was surprised when Judge Webster Thayer threw the book at him; twelve to fifteen years in prison. August had shown a resurgence for the Boston Red Sox.Ă‚ It was interrupted on the 20th when the Red Sox were schedualed to play the Cleveland Indians. This produced a situation in which, wrote Nicholas Biddle, "The kitchen predominates over the parlor". It is important to note that there were no reports of crushing by the crowd, no stampede to escape the assault, supporting eyewitnesses who emphasized how well behaved the crowd had been. That forced any assault from the north far inland, down the line of the Mississippi Central Railroad toward the state capital of Jackson. But because he pleaded guilty his sentence was commuted to transportation to America. He was known to have badly beaten several of his victims, and was suspected in at least two murders. But I do know that hatred and anger always destroys its owner. His photos remind me of a vulture, for some reason. In 1863 Jacob joined a wagon train bound for the new gold fields around Phoenix, Arizona. "In 1909 God moved two Christian laymen to set aside a large sum of money for issuing twelve volumes that would set forth the fundamentals of the Christian faith..." Of course, being a skeptic, that explained nothing to me. It was untraceable because, without a standardized national currency of their own, Spanish and Mexican coins circulated so commonly in America, that prices were figured as the equivalent in Spanish (and Mexican) currency, to the point that today's ubiquitous American "$" sign was borrowed from its Spanish inventors. * In the morning, Gibbs and Wansely opened one of the barrels of rum and shared it with Dawes, Brownrigg and the other crewmen. And he may be a squirrel...a great big, grey one, with sharp bitey teeth and maybe a bazooka. Humans are singularly ignorant of the 300 plus species of squirrels in this world. Without a decent tasting wine to sell, a monastery could not thrive. After 47 years of - dare I say it? - religious attention to detail, Pierre turned the haphazard blending of wines in the Champagne region into an art. Van Buren's only response to the "Panic of 1837" was to cut government expenditures, so tightly that they even sold the tools used to construct roads and bridges. He was now 22, and this was his second swing through the western circuit, telling such local jokes as "What's the difference between a cow boy and a tumble bug (a dung beetle)? One rounds up to cut, and the other cuts to round up". But closer examination of the facts reveals what it really was: a power struggle between two very strong personalities." Strong personalities? I would call them two of the biggest hams in American history. http://colonial-america.suite101.com/article.cfm/bacons_rebellion_1676#ixzz0P10jXiYb - 30 WEDNESDAY: COXEY'S ARMY; PART TWO The March Begins. But geologists still had no way of gauging how old oil was. But then Oliver went on the ultimate ego trip, launching a bloody war trying to eradicate Catholicism from Ireland. He got a job as a farm hand in Santa Clara County, at the southern end of San Francisco Bay. April 11, 1960 *


We know so much about Tommy's immediate post war business because in May of 1945 the new President Harry Truman asked FBI director J. That was the plan, anyway. The man in the Iron Mask was not Leonardo DiCaprio. One was Jim Masterson, younger brother to Bat and a fellow city deputy. And internal border crossings, each exacting a tariff, began to multiply across France as Philip's losses increased. It seems that Wyatt sensibly stayed out of sight until Allison left town, despite Wyatt's later stories to the contrary. * In 1879 Wyatt and his brothers moved on to Tombstone, Arizona. Approaching pier six. They loved him, they just weren't willing to lend him any more money. He was ably qualified for both of those jobs. She engaged the services of a big (6') blustery, bowie knife-wielding lawyer, a hot headed exjustice of the California Supreme Court named David Terry (below). He won for the simple reason that in 1920 America wanted to go back to sleep. Harding was helped by the Democrats, who, in shades of the 2000 election, could not decide if they liked their leader enough to vote for him. Wilson was despised by everybody. Over the following years Captain John Paul aquired a reputation for brutality. daring and apparent recklessness in time of danger." But those were later descriptions. The sudden influx hit the market like a bomb, on September 24, 1869, when gold dropped 30%. And when Robert and Francis took their vows the day after Christmas 1613, Sir Walter Raleigh was already hard at work, tracking down an obscure man we know only as William. What made this William stand out was that although he was a lowly apprentice to an apothecary, he had suddenly left England for Holland. She was able to deflect his throw so that the sauce pan bounced off a decorative cornice before exploding. And after three heady years, Harry was forced to resign when his chief aide, Jess Smith, was caught taking kickbacks from bootleggers. And after that cab pulled into the New York night, he dropped off the face of the earth. * Judge Crater was, until Jimmy Hoffa, "the missing-est man in America". The room is warmed by a wood fire. And Speaker Elder was demanding an immediate investigation. * With the Republicans siding with the Democrats against the Independents, neither side dared to adjourn. Moore, a "friend" of President McKinley who appointed him U.S. He mumbled. Each time it had been lost again, the last time in 1739, but there was a young leader on the throne in Turkey, and Joseph was looking to grab a quick trophy to assuage his critics. At least they waited until after noon for it to warm up before they even began their treck. First there came a man on foot carrying an American flag, who the press duitfully identfied as a "negro", thus mocking Coxey's determination to treat all races in his army with equal respect. On May 22, 1939 he pled guilty. Wrote one of the party, "The loss of eight of us within two days was deeply felt." They immediately began building a fort, which they christened with the name of the man who signed their pay checks (and who had hired Captain Thorn!); Fort Astor. Captain Thorn did not wait for the construction to be completed. And just like thousands of other twenty year old's, he pestered the owners to give him a job behind the wheel.


* According to Eddie, the drivers warned him, "Eddie, when you climb into that race car and when you punch that gas pedal down, things are going to happen you never dreamed of before. "I bring with me", he wrote, "duplicates of my vouchers for public expenditures... "He can learn to know men in this way as in no other, no matter whether (you are) selling shoes, phonographs, real estate or insurance...It is only a question of psychology, anyhow." Just before noon, on Thursday September 16, 1920 a lesson in psychology was offered to the American protestant ruling class, if they cared to learn such a lesson. If history is any guide, more than 90 percent of union money will be used to defeat Republicans no matter what happens." And every day Pooh refuses to let go of the honey pot of union busting, that 90% gets bigger and bigger and bigger. Others came from England, France and Italy. Elder presided from the podium, calling on speakers and announcing votes, while Meiklejohn sat at the clerk's desk, doing the same, but for other people. In 1968, when Nixon won the Presidency by a narrow margin, Murray was still there again, if now behind the scenes. It did not work.George Washington did not trust James Wilkerson, nor did John Adams or James Madison. Joseph, under construction or otherwise, and no farm land. And in 1674, there landed in the midst of this fraternity Will's nephew, the impatient and ambitious 24 year old, Nathaniel Bacon. Will welcomed his nephew (above) warmly, giving him property and a trading concession with the Indians. Normally these dioxide farts would disapate into the air while the wine fermented. From this point the business of government in Nebraska got very noisy and ground to a complete halt, all over the issue of the certification of the new governor. * As these things were normally counted, the clear election loser was the Republican candidate L.D. And not a single one of them would have willing made that sacrifice if it had been offered to them, because for our world to be born, theirs had to die. A stock broker the next day quipped, "It was characteristic of Mr. Of course it has stuck around as a vestigial etymological fossil, but any current criminal shrink can now vouch that the loonies who espoused anarchy were really just pathological egotistical narcissists. Nash has b---s as big as a bull!" Dispite the story being gramatically incorrect (Mrs. As Time Magazine detailed, "After 15 minutes (of) yelling, shrieking (and) hooting, (Hoover) was allowed to begin. But it had cost Meriwether more than is or was then generally understood. * While on this three year adventure, not only had he repeatedly starved, been frozen, and nearly drowned several times, he had also been shot by one of his own men (by accident). And when you do you will understand why William Ralston had been so willing to believe, and why capitalism depends upon a fantasy and a fraud. As that repetitive plotter Antonio puts it in The Tempest, "What's past is prologue", which he says while plotting yet another assignation. Both Nixon and Knowland won. * Politics was still a "hobby" at this point for Murray. And when Jackson moved into the White House, Amos came with him.Officially, Amos was given a vague job in the Treasury Department. But the next morning, faced with a cold rain and an impending battle, General Wilkerson came down sick, and the actual command fell to a General Boyd. Eventually the sick old coot was forced to admit that he had a mine. Louis. Or torso. Almost overnight Walker's speech was transformed from being about


Buncombe to being "pure Buncombe" itself. The truth was that Pendergast Ready-Mix Cement was probably his only entirely legal business. But those official bargains were only available in parcels of 320 acre lots. * And as was, again, noted in "The Completion..." "The common Carey Plow (above) was made entirely of wood, save for an iron collar to cut the sod...With such an implement an acre was a good days work." In other words, any farm over forty acres was simply of no use to a family depending upon farming for its livelihood. * The only people who could afford to buy into the Federal auctions were wealthy speculators and combines of speculators, who re-surveyed and subdivided the land, and then re-sold it to smaller speculators, who re-surveyed and re-sold it to even smaller speculators. The prosecutor spoke of the "echoes of the church bells" still lingering in the air" while Daniel pulled the trigger over and over. All this kitchen chemistry was required because 19th century turkeys were scrawny and almost exclusively dark meat. William Stead, from the magazine Review of Reviews, noted that "Never in the annals of insurrection has so small a company of soldiers been accompanied by such a phalanx of recording angels." It would quickly develop that he was one of the more sympathetic angles. "The road to the City of Emeralds is paved with yellow brick," said the Witch, "so you cannot miss it. Together they opened an embasy in London, and in Scotland they began offering Poyais farmland at bargin prices, as "...an asylum only for the industrious and honest." Almost overnight they sold some 200,000 pounds worth of Poyais bonds. And yet she was about to come within a hair's breath of controling one of the biggest fortunes in America, while entertaining an entire nation for a decade. In 1923 the America Legion, then made up mostly of veterens of World War One, the Spanish American War, and the Phillipines Insurection, decided that the phrase "my flag" was too open to interpitation. The rest of us just hadn't noticed it yet. They held the place for a little over six hours, until Jay returned from New York. of course, that required that at the same time they belittle and dismiss the millions of their desperate fellow citizens whose plight the march was trying to publicize.The crime was that the news media of 1894, like the media of today, were perfectly willing to ignore the drama, and instead protray the march as a joke.

OK was far easier to spell, too. But the lady goddess did have a perfect living example of the breed, a walking earthquake of passion and self-centered delusion named Sarah Althea Hill - she didn't much like her first name and was known to friends and enemies alike as Althea. They were shocked at Daniel's display of marital compassion. Explained Daniel, when he was arrested, "He deserved it." It was the trial of the century! Again. This is what happens when lawyers stop thinking with their big heads. "It is with our passions as it is with fire and water; they are good servants, but bad masters." Roger L'Estrange So, on September 3, 1888, Althea and David Terry found themselves back in the Assesors' Building (above), while the final decision in their contempt case was read out by the ancient, pompous, humorless, Federal Judge Stephen J. And, since these experts believed that adding another week to the shopping season would increase sales by 10%, Franklin announced, this year, at least, he was moving Thanksgiving to Thursday, November 23rd. The first alarm should have gone off when Fred Lazarus ran into his younger brother Simon. And a 17-year old apprentice, Samuel Maverick, had been struck down by 'lobster backs' at the Boston


Massacre. He hired the best detective he could find, the long time San Francisco Captain of Detectives, Isaiah.W. Althea was sentenced to one month. What he was, was a marketing genius. And if there were second thoughts after John's gallows conversion to innocence, they were put aside. Does that look like anti-Semitism to you? Who but an anti-Semite would deny it? At the time Coughlin openly justified his anti-Semitism by claiming "Jewish persecution only followed after Christians first were persecuted" and promised, "When we get through with the Jews in America, they'll think the treatment they received in Germany was nothing." He preached the same strain of ugly hatred that underlay Charles Lindberg's "America First" committee, and Henry Ford's American publication of the Czarists fraud the "Protocol of the Elders of Zion". And when the Nebraska legislature convened in joint session in January of 1891 things very quickly developed into that Victor Hugo melodrama. * To begin with, the new speaker of the House, Independent Sam Elder, decided he was going to bypass the acting President of the Senate, Republican George Meiklejohn (who was also the lieutenant-governor) and preside over both houses of the legislature all by himself. I seen nothing humorous in having your shoes set afire while you are wearing them. The brilliant photographs are from the creative mind of Glen Wexler, in "The Secret Life of Cows". - 30 SUNDAY: COMPROMISE When The Middle Ground Is The Losing Ground COXEY'S ARMY: PART TWO I am glad I was not there on that Easter Sunday, March 26th, 1894, when what the press would call "Coxey's Army" set out from Massillon, Ohio. His family connections in Hardin County, Kentucky, and his donations to local politicians were only reinforced by the interviews he gave to the "Louisville Courier"; "I have employed counsel, a good Henry Rifle" he announced. The army hesitated, but enough men automatically leaned forward, that Smith (actually Bazarro) sensed an advantage and seized the moment. He turned his horse and rode back amongst the men. A month later who should arrive but King George Frederic (yes, he was real) aboard an English ship. All past indiscretions were forgotten, if not forgiven. * And I believe that for every second of his 91 years of life , Daniel Sickles (above) was totally and completely insane. Tariff's were now levied on every wagon load of goods bound to and from The Fairs. A generation after that war, Thomas Jefferson's road improvements bill had failed to fix the problem. His public image remains as a villain in films, plays, history books and a child's nursery rhyme. But things did not work out that way. And yet, curiously, land prices remained cripplingly high. *


This all came about because of Alexander Hamilton's great compromise. And in a rational world, that would have settled that. The Frisian villagers who gathered the amber up in hand held nets could not have known where this amber had originated from anymore than the Celts in England knew their Sea Coal had a companion under their feet. And that, one way or another, is the way most badger games end. * In contrast there was William A.E. For a long moment the two ships hung there in the middle of The Narrows. It is to Amos's credit that, when the war finally came, he publically supported the Union cause, which, for a Democrat who was unending in his criticism of the Lincoln administration, was not an easy thing to do. * The amazing Amos Kendall died on November 12, 1869, at sixty years of age. Before them stood a little man...He was clothed all in green, from his head to his feet, and even his skin was of a greenish tint. The old man - at 73 he was the oldest man in the Senate -had crafted a course of action he was assured would placate the firebrands in the South. He was attracted to drama, which was unusuaul for a student of "the dismal science" of economics. Amongst the things settled at Bretton Woods was how to structure the world's economy after World War II. Here is the Red River, which will supply the Confederacy with cattle and corn to feed their armies. The Frisians fashioned the amber into jewelry and sold and traded it with their inland neighbors. Eddie Foy died of a heart attack in 1927 at the age of 71. * In September of 1878 a cattle broker and gunman named Clay Allison came to Dodge looking for a showdown with Wyatt Earp. The church objected but that only slowed Philip down, it did not stop him. But nobody outside of the diamond industry had ever heard about those guys. And their personal history provided some insight into the movement they had fathered. * Lyman Stewart (above) was the deeply religious eldest son of a tanner. The term "ad nasseum" leaps to mind. But Elder believed with good reason that 2,000 fraudulent votes had been cast for Boyd in Douglas County, centered on Omaha. Now it was embarrassing.There was worse to come. The board of directors of his new company were empowered not only to dig out the diamonds of Diamond Mountain - where ever it might be - but they were also empowered to cut and polish the stones, and develop the market for them. No trace of the old man or the money was found. He would prove to be an effective opponent - for Frederick Bates was a very good at being an unpleasant man. *


As Bates wrote to his brother, "My habits are pacific. Every indication was that first thing Monday morning, he would easily be elected. Barron had access to), Mr. Astor had now taken up residence. By 33 he fell into the profession of footpath, a thief who waylaid fellow pedestrians at gunpoint and robbed them. William was suspected of much more. But Howard has found a new way to avoid facing up to this reality check. * On May 23rd, 2011, the day after the day after doomsday, Howard went on his church's radio network and assured his confused followers that, in fact the world had ended two days earlier, just as he had predicted. He inspired H.G. However, on the 24th , Coxey's Army, now 340 strong, marched into town, escorted by the deputies. The two mobsters fought back, trying to keep Crater in the cab, and at some point in the struggle, Judge Joe Crater was killed.

But rather than evacuating the offices he ordered an office boy to carry the suspect sauce pan down to the street. "We are all speeding toward death at the rate of 60 minutes every hour. You do not have to follow these guidelines, but applying them to possible choices may sharpen your nominations. In 1868 she married a Quartermasters Clerk named Clifton. Let me know which politician you believe has in the past year achieved their "Level of Incompetence" and blazed beyond into the stratosphere of political insanity. The first place and time I would visit would be West 45th street in Manhattan, just after 9:00 PM on the night of August 6, 1930. They were no better trained than the Ohio National Guard troopers who opened fire on unarmed civilians 160 years later at Kent State. He was never paid, of course, but it stilled any public concern about his investment scheme. Barnum's museum in New York, there is no evidence he ever did. In fact, William Burke was the man who paid the price, of being remembered as a fiend, but whose real crime was just not being very nice. - 30 COXEY'S ARMY: PART SEVEN I imagine that every one of the seven miles from Brightwood Park to the capital were very tense for Coxey's Army. Nash wore a pink Tarleton (which she sewed herself) and false curls, and she had "constant partners". Then, unexpectedly, Sergeant Nash stole his wife's savings and deserted her and the service. He supported Roosevelt in the 1932 election ("Roosevelt or Ruin"), but by 1935 Coughlin was calling him "The great betrayer and liar...Franklyn Double-Crossing Roosevelt". So between attacks of debilitating fevers, Joseph ordered an immediate forced march to capture Vida, and the nearby village of Karansebes. Call me a romantic. We're supposed to be beyond that in this country." Well, we are approaching a century later and we still aren't! Finally, Landon himself was coaxed into joining the anti-Social Security bandwagon. Afterward this technique, which left no visible wounds or bruises, would be called "Burking". Clown shoes. See results without voting THE PRICE OF GRATITUDE I know it is popular to demonize Karl Rove as Bush's brain, but in fact he is merely the latest in a


profession that goes at least as far back as Democrat Amos Kendall, who was Andrew Jackson's brain. Hamilton not only survived this horror show but within ten years became one of the most successful and powerful men in America, the man who invented the American economic system. The 66 year old strode up behind Judge Field. "Subdue your passion or it will subdue you." Horace. Terry slapped the seated Judge across both cheeks, as if intending to precipitate a duel. Then he mentioned his real reason for all this effort. This time, when they were on top, the pair sold out to Rockefeller's Standard Oil of Indiana. But then in August, Roosevelt handed them an early Christmas present.

And there was one small problem with that.It was well known that the dissection of human corpses was essential for the training of doctors. But Marshal Neagle did not. Lees immediately set out for Europe and found, as he suspected, that there were many along Tulip Street who recognized the photographs of the two odd Americans from their 1870 expedition. The skeletons of the horses were also detritus of this bronze age battle. That made Tennessee the 36th state to ratify. So they gave their horses as gifts to the local Indians, and the trappers set about constructing birch bark canoes. And as a practical matter, prostitution by laundresses was not activily discouraged by the officers. This was the frontier and the only other option for amorous release by a trooper was with either his fellow troopers or the horses.

Also on hand were 1,500 federal troops (3 for every member of the Army), with more in position in Baltimore, Annapolis, and Philadelphia, ready to rush to the capital to put down any rebellion. It was also the junction of the National Road, the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, the Potomac River and the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal. This order had the effect of ruling retroactivly that the common law marraige of Senator Sharon and Althea was retroactivly null and void. The unprepared customers, sitting upright, suffered whiplash, blackouts, headaches, nausea, tunnel vision, and loss of balance for hours afterward, not the mention the joy of losing your lunch at thirty-five miles an hour while upside down. Walker had been born in 1753 in the mountains of western Virginia. But every time he ventured south from that base, Rebel cavalry under Nathan Bedford Forrest slipped around "Old Brains", captured his supplies and burned his bridges.
