    Ever since I started using my phone and these devices, I've read more and learned more.

    I don't care what anyone says. It's easy to get on stuff. It all depends on the sucker who uses it.

    Instead of playing jetpack joyride, I'm reading the WSJ.

    So....in regards to this story here in my work town....I realized late last night that i recognized the victims name, because he owned the pharmacy at the end of the road....whic begs the question: junkie drug motive?? some deranged **** trying to get his oxy by kidnapping the guy or something? idk....that's prob not out of the realm of possibility. I bet cops are exploring that.

    I dont read. it's not because i dont enjoy good story telling...but physically I cant sit still enough to do it. ADHD kicks in, and 15 mins in, I'm off to do something else. I just cant do it. The only way I can do it really is when I know im not killing time. Like...if I'm at work, I can read anything...all day....but that's because I'm stuck here lol.
    My mind can convince me that my time is better spent doing something else than read is basically what it comes down to.

    I remember MLK vividly. I was too young to really remember the other two at all

    My memory of the Bobby Kennedy assassination is really clear. It happened on a Wednesday morning (at least when it was reported) and our neighbor called my Mother about it. She scrambled to the TV to turn it on, muttering that it was the only day she didn't have the Today show on. It was June 5th, 1968.

    On Sunday, we went to a bat day doubleheader at Yankee Stadium and sat behind a pole that said "Sec 51".
    Stan Bahnsen won game one (I think 7-2) and Bill Barber (at least I remember his last name was Barber) won game 2,...3-2.
    I got a Tom Tresh 29" bat and both my brothers got Steve Whittaker bats.
    We weren't sure they would play because it was the official day of mourning in NY. (Bobby Kennedy was actually a Senator from NY)

    How's that for memory.

    I was in grammar school 4 or 5 grade, they had us all assembled in the cafeteria watching as the motorcade made its way through dallas...We saw it happen live, teachers started crying and they sent us home...the man was loved by many......There are really no works to explain what I think and feel about such insane brutal ****......I'm not sure I care to even remember those times
