Kurtz: Did they say why, Willard, why they want to terminate my command?

Willard: I was sent on a classified mission, sir.

Kurtz: It's no longer classified, is it? Did they tell you?

Willard: They told me that you had gone totally insane, and that your methods were unsound.

Kurtz: Are my methods unsound?

Willard: I don't see any method at all, sir.

Kurtz: I expected someone like you. What did you expect? Are you an assassin?

Willard: I'm a soldier.

The episode ends with her walking along the street on a path that leads away from an overhead traffic signal that has the green indicator illuminated.

The earlier scene with the guy lighting the match was a nice touch.

The I. J. Fox Corporation opened branches in Cleveland in 1940 and Philadelphia in 1945, followed by Paris and London in later decades. The fur company was soon considered "America's Largest Furrier," spending more than $1 million each year in advertisements. On December. 7, 1930, Boston's W1XAV broadcast what is considered the first television commercial during a video portion of the Fox radio orchestra program "The Fox Trappers."

This computer, unfurled to scientists on Feb. 14, helped launch the computer revolution and the U.S. tech dominance for decades. Few suspected actually what those next 60 years would bring. The evolution of computing devices has come a long way since the days of ENIAC.


[The way I see it, this was the modern equivalent of man inventing fire. Today's PC are a much improved version of that invention, in essence, a match or a butane ligther. Software is the fuel for that energy source. I don't think we have reached a point yet where you could compare the computer to the combustion engine. After that would be the progress that produces the computer equivalent of a jet engine. Of course, some marketing weenie is going to read this and start trying to refer to their products as jet engines.]

1952: UNIVAC
Univac was the primary product of the Eckert-Mauchly computer company. Not only was it faster, but it demonstrated the shift from base-ten to binary code. A Univac was used by CBS news to predict the outcome of the 1952 Presidential Election. That event brought computing into the public eye, according to many historians. It wouldn't be long before scientific focus shifted to microprocessors.

[Not only was it binary machine language, but to manually program it, you had to start with base-10, convert that mentally to base-8, and then mentally convert that to base-2, or binary.]

Subject: Move date

Hi Kerry!

I received your email yesterday but it has been so busy that I haven't had a chance to read through it. I will keep working on it through the week :)

The person who is currently in B-304 only had a 3 month lease but they were hoping to extend it a little further into September for employment reasons. Would you be okay with moving your move date back a few days to September 27th? If not this person is okay with leaving early, it would just be ideal for them to stay that extra little bit.

Again either way is fine with us we just wanted to at least run it by you.

Thanks Kerry!

EPISODE NUMBER - 205

ORIGINAL U.S. AIR DATE - 10.26.10


On the alien planet we get another look at the growths on Scott's arm. It looks as if a blue fungus has covered his upper forearm. He is now lying still with his eyes closed and T.J., wearing medical gloves, has her fingers pressed to the pulse on his neck.

JOHANSEN: OK, he's out again. Guys, we can move him.

(Standing up, she moves out of the way as the men move towards him. Chloe goes over to T.J.)

ARMSTRONG: You'll be able to help him once we're back on the ship, right?

RUSH: We can't risk taking him on board. It's too dangerous.

ARMSTRONG: What?!

JOHANSEN: Rush is right. You saw how quickly the organism spreads on contact. It could take over the whole ship.

ARMSTRONG: He can't stay here, either!

GREER: Chloe.

(He hands her his rifle and bends down to Scott, then looks at Eli and Volker who are also bent down.)

GREER: Are you ready? One, two, three.

(Between them, they lift Scott's unconscious body, Greer holding his shoulders, Eli his legs and Dale supporting his torso and backside. The girls grab the bags containing T.J.'s medical kit and other equipment.)

GREER: We got you.

(Eli nods.)

GREER: Go.

(Eli turns and begins to stumble in the direction of the Stargate. Volker and Greer follow, Ronald encouraging the younger man to lead them away more quickly.)

GREER: Come on, come on, move your feet, Eli, come on.

WALLACE: OK!

(Rush takes his bag over to the girls for them to carry.)

RUSH: I'll run ahead, contact Destiny, try to get them to send back medical supplies. If I'm fast, I'll get back before you reach the Gate, OK?

JOHANSEN: Yeah-yeah, good, go.

(Rush jogs towards the men carrying Scott.)

RUSH: Eli.

WALLACE: Yeah. Whoa, stop.

(The men stop momentarily so that Rush can catch them up.)

RUSH: Remote.

(He digs in Eli's jacket pocket to get the remote device from it.)

RUSH: OK.

(He chases off as the others start to stumble onwards with their load. Somewhere nearby, something hisses and rattles ominously.)

CLOVERDALE. Matt leads the others into the family house. He looks around the kitchen appreciatively as he passes through.

MATT: Wow. Oh, this hasn't changed one bit!

(Grinning, he continues into the sitting room. Eli follows him, camera raised to his shoulder as he films.)

ELI: Matt is clearly moved seeing the old homestead again.

Caprica




https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caprica_(TV_series)


Caprica (TV series)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Caprica is an American science fiction drama television series. A spin-off prequel of the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica taking place 58 years before the cataclysmic destruction of the twelve colonies of Kobol, Caprica shows how humanity first created the robotic Cylons who would later turn against their human masters. Among Caprica's main characters are the father and uncle of William Adama, the man who becomes the senior surviving military leader of the fleet which represents the remnants of the Twelve Colonies in Battlestar Galactica.


Overview


Although a critical success, Galactica had a predominantly male audience, and both Moore and the network felt the "war in space" backdrop was a major deterrent to female viewers. With these considerations, and Caprica's storyline already focused on events taking place prior to the two Cylon Wars, the series has a different tone, content, and style. While Caprica contains references to elements of the Battlestar universe, the series was intended to be accessible to new fans.


Outline

Whereas the dark, post-apocalyptic reimagined Battlestar Galactica series revolved around a final struggle for survival, Caprica is concerned with a world intoxicated by success. Ronald D. Moore states: "It's about a society that's running out of control with a wild-eyed glint in its eye." The Twelve Colonies are at their peak: self-involved, oblivious, and mesmerized by the seemingly unlimited promise of technology. Framed by the conflict between the Adamas and the Graystones over the resurrection of loved ones lost in an act of terrorism, the series was meant to explore ethical implications of advances in artificial intelligence and robotics.


Details

Joseph Adama is the father of future Battlestar commander Bill Adama. In the act of terrorism that sets the story in motion, Joseph loses his wife and daughter. His family – his son, Willie, his brother, Sam, and his mother-in-law – deal with aftermath of their loss.

Ethnicity is a recurring theme in Caprica. The series takes place before the Twelve Colonies are unified under one government. Relations between the diverse worlds are contentious and discrimination is pervasive. Tauron's native language is represented by Ancient Greek, and given an emphasis on vengeance and organized crime. After Joseph's sense of propriety is energized in the pilot's third act, he confesses to his son that he changed his last name to hide his background. Introduced as Adams, Joseph then reclaims his surname, Adama. He is also referred to as "Yusif" by fellow Taurons in private conversations, and Joseph is a "Capricanized" rendition of his original Tauron name. More Tauron personal names mentioned, like "Khalil," emphasize the Other-ness of Tauron culture on a Caprican world.

One of the show's main driving points is religious belief. Colonial culture is influenced by mainstream Polytheism, the religious belief in multiple gods which is characteristic of the ancient Greek and Roman traditions.










https://13thcolony.wordpress.com/2010/02/27/tamara-adams-what-are-you/

The 13th Colony


Tamara Adams, What Are You?

February 27, 2010

The following is a review of Caprica, episode 5, “There is Another Sky” and therefore contains spoilers.

Caprica cranked it up a notch this week, showing us a whole new world, and surprising depth to a character who should have very little. Hold on to your fedoras, more after the chop.

The Adama family is falling apart. Joseph sleeps the day away, unaware his son hasn’t been to school for several days. Indulging in nostalgia, he takes his son on the lamest excuse for a fishing trip, ever. If there is a reason both his son and Romo Lampkin come to fear and despise him in the future, we cannot see it here. Joseph is floundering and weak and it is up to his brother to convince him to do what’s right for himself and his son.

Willy Adama is struggling to figure out who he wants to be, trying out his pugilistic skills against some older kids who called him a dirt eater and doing his best to provoke his father.

And then, there’s Tamara. The avatar of Joseph’s dead daughter is still stuck in the V-World, unaware of what she is. She wants to “wake up” and seeks the help of brutal gamer Vesta (Camille Mitchell). The price for her help is Tamara’s participation in a game, helping Vesta and her cronies rob an avatar named Chiron. With Tamara’s unusual regenerative abilities, they are able to get just want they want, but of course, they can’t help her and they finally tell her so after she’s been shot three times in one episode. What they don’t count on is Tamara (Genevieve Buechner) taking matters into her own hands. She is an Adama after all, even is she doesn’t know it. Tamara suddenly becomes an interesting character. Fascinating. Whether or not the game she was playing has any relevance to the overall story arc, other than to introduce us to the way cool New Cap City, doesn’t matter as much as what the game helped her learn about herself. She is awake. And clearly she is trouble with a capital T.

I’ve been saying for a long time that Caprica could improve it’s ratings by having Esai Morales take his shirt off. He obliges the female fans just a bit here as Joseph undergoes a Tauron tattoo ritual as part of the funeral rites for his wife and daughter. (For more information about Tauron tattoos, check out Jane Espenson’s explanation here.) The farewell scene, very reminiscent of the Greek myth of Charon and the price of crossing the river Styx was very compelling. But still, with a twist at the end, the audience realizes that no one ritual is going to heal this broken man. Given the slightest encouragement, he is desperately eager to find his daughter in V-World.

Daniel Graystone’s path through this episode closely echoes Joseph’s, though his is more an intellectual than an emotional arc.

When Daniel confesses to his wife that he could be on the verge of losing his company, she walks him down memory lane, reminding him of the man who started with nothing and despite obstacles, triumphed when it counted. It’s a cliche and it only works because Paula Malcomson delivers the lines so earnestly. So the next day Daniel stands before his Board of Directors and confidently hands them a new vision of the future of Graystone Industries: The Cylon.

“Do you not understand the enormity of this creation? It’s more than a machine. This Cylon will become a tireless worker, who won’t need to be paid. It won’t retire, or get sick. It won’t have rights, or objections, or complaints. It will do anything and everything we ask of it, without question.”

The American Presidency Project

Lyndon B. Johnson

XXXVI President of the United States: 1963-1969

221 - Remarks to the Lawyers Conference on Crime Control.

May 13, 1967

Mr. Attorney General, Mr. Solicitor General, Mr. Marden, distinguished officials, ladies and gentlemen:

I am sure that before this speech is over a good many of you will wish it had been no longer than the introduction.

I have spent the first 5 days of this week surrounded by lawyers--and here I am voluntarily agreeing to make it 6.

Eight members of my Cabinet were trained as lawyers--notice I said trained. Two others--who are not lawyers themselves--have lawyers acting for them as under secretaries. So you have just about succeeded already in making an LL.B. necessary to work for LBJ.

But the problem of any President requires skills that good lawyers generally have in abundance; that is:

--the ability to analyze a problem objectively,

--the ability to solve it fairly and expeditiously. Yet for all their skills, lawyers in Government have not escaped criticism either. Some people say that the lawyer is trained to react to only problems--not to create the new instruments for progress that our people need. Some feel the lawyer is temperamentally unable to say how something can be accomplished--that he too frequently is known to say, "You just can't get there from here."

My experience with lawyers is otherwise. In dealing with civil rights problems, with transportation, with poverty, and with education, their legal insight and their foresight have been invaluable to me as President. Lawyers are today supplying a very important creative force to every sector of this Nation's policy. I will be glad to testify to that in open court.

Public safety is an area of particular concern to your profession.

Past and current presidents of the ABA have had a major part in improving the fairness of our courts and our correctional systems. Many among you contributed to bringing three really landmark programs into being during my first 3 years in the Presidency:

--First was the Criminal Justice Act providing lawyers to poor defendants in Federal courts, and giving them the right to competent, concerned counsel.

--Second, the legal services program, in the Office of Economic Opportunity. Through local bars you have provided the manpower and initiative for more than 200 community legal service agencies. They have helped the neediest among our people cope with wrongs that they just had to tolerate before.

--Finally, the Bail Reform Act, a reform that exists today because of the partnership of understanding between the private bar and the Federal Government. Now you are considering another urgent proposal. I do want you to consider it and consider doing something about it--putting your shoulder to the wheel and helping us while we have time, helping us before it is too late: the Safe Streets and Crime Control Act, that I have sent forward to Congress earlier this year.

We tried to design a flexible program that leaves ultimate responsibility where it belongs--in the local governments--but that also provides the means and the impulse for reform. It provides an incentive for greater efficiency and for greater fairness: in the police force, in the courtroom, in the jail, and in the reformatory.

In great part this program is based on the conclusions of the National Crime Commission-for which I am deeply in your debt because several of your most distinguished members took part in the deliberations of that Commission. I hope you will help to explain the need for it and the reasons behind it, in your own communities when you return.

I hope, too, that you will work to improve the criminal codes in your State--to make them more responsive to the real needs of criminal justice.

Reducing crime is a matter of great urgency for the people of this Nation, and for your State, your city, your community, and in your own block. We must find better ways to secure their safety--to prevent crime, as well as to punish it--to preserve public order without denying private rights.

Finding those ways will require cool heads and understanding hearts. For 200 years that description has fitted the best American lawyers. I believe it still does--I know it still does. I believe that the country will benefit greatly from the work you have done here.

I am very, very proud of my country and the contribution that the members of the bar have made to it during the period I have tried to lead it.

I was reading last night about some of the concerns the American people have. There are many concerns. There are many frustrations. There are many worries that we carry with us. Some have more than others.

But uppermost in everyone's mind is how we can have peace in the world. We Americans are not the only ones to make that decision. There are other people who participate in it, too. We are just a small group of 200 million out of 3 billion.

We cannot control the other fellow's conduct as we have found so many times in our history. But we are trying to lead and by precept and example to do what we can to hasten the day when there will be peace throughout the world.

If any of you lawyers or any of you thinkers or any of you with logical brains can contribute to it, we will welcome it. We need any suggestion and any help that you can give.

Next to peace, I guess the thing that is troubling our people more than anything else now is crime. I didn't originate it. I am not responsible for it. I didn't start it.

There is not a great deal I can do about it. But I am doing everything I know to do. And I want to do more.

If you have any ideas where the President can, with propriety, act where he hasn't, I welcome those suggestions.

I am very proud that some of the best legal minds in this Nation spent a lot of their vacation time voluntarily working for their country--some of them in the rice paddies of Vietnam, some of them in the slums of our cities, and some of them in the National Capital.

You haven't been slackers. You haven't dodged your President's requests. And you have always responded. I don't have a great deal of difficulty finding men to become Federal judges or appellate judges.

I suppose in due time I can even find one for the Supreme Court.

It is not because there is more money in those hills, but it is because the great pride in your profession--the great opportunity you have to serve it and to help bring justice to the world.

You don't have to wait until you are tapped for a lifetime job at a low salary that has overwork. You can take all of that money you are making now--with good income-and serve your country, too:

--serve it by helping us find a way to peace in the world,

--serve it by leading your community,

--serve it by giving people the judgment, the balance, and the freedom from hysteria that they do need in times like this, and

--serve it by setting an example--providing the leadership and initiative to help us solve this problem which has crept up on us and which is so monopolizing our attention these days--the problem of crime.

There is no one who can do more about those things than the lawyers of this Nation. There is no association which, I believe, has become or is becoming more socially conscious and more understanding of their obligations than the members of the bar.

That is why I came over here today on a rather busy day--to tell you that your President is proud of you and that your Nation is better because of you.

Thank you very much.

Note: The President spoke at 1:40 p.m. in the Colonial Room at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington. In his opening words he referred to Attorney General Ramsey Clark, Solicitor General Thurgood Marshall, and Orison Marden, president of the American Bar Association.

The I. J. Fox Corporation opened branches in Cleveland in 1940 and Philadelphia in 1945, followed by Paris and London in later decades. The fur company was soon considered "America's Largest Furrier," spending more than $1 million each year in advertisements. On December. 7, 1930, Boston's W1XAV broadcast what is considered the first television commercial during a video portion of the Fox radio orchestra program "The Fox Trappers."



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W1WX


W1WX

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

W1WX is Boston's second television station (the first being W1XAY). This station started up in April 1929, and was owned by Shortwave and Television Laboratory, Inc., (which was founded on December 5, 1928 by A.M. "Vic" Morgan, Hollis Baird, and Butler Perry).

The station started off broadcasting on 2120 kHz, alternating between 48 and 60 vertical lines and 15 frames per second. In 1930, it moved over to 2.1-2.2 kHz and broadcast at 48 lines only, still at 15 frames per second.

In 1934, the station switched back to 60 vertical lines only, running at 20 frames per second until it shut down.

Timeline


December 7, 1930: W1XAV Boston broadcasts a video portion of a CBS Radio program, The Fox Trappers orchestra program, sponsored by I. J. Fox Furriers. Included was what is sometimes called the first television commercial, which was prohibited by FRC regulations, however, other experimental television stations such as W1XAY may have done so before W1XAV signed on the air. Regardless, the FRC advised against this, since there was no agreement on whether experimental stations could air commercials, or sponsored network programming.

Where did the first TV advertisement air in the United States? Much like the first radio advertisement, it’s really up for debate. Many people say the first television commercial aired on July 1, 1941, and advertised Bulova watches. This particular spot was 10 seconds long and cost $9 to air, during a day and age when there were very few TV sets to be found.

Others believe the first-ever TV commercial aired much earlier, on December 7, 1930; during which video was telecast from a CBS radio orchestra show called The Fox Trappers. This was more than a decade before the Bulova watch commercial, and it featured the I. J. Fox Furrier Company of Boston sponsoring a program on W1XAV. At the time, the station broadcast on 2.1-2.2 mHz, with 500 watts of power; and 60 lines and 20 frames per second.

FIRST TV ADVERTISEMENT DEBATE

It could be simply a matter of semantics, meaning some consider a sponsorship to be an actual TV advertisement, while others just consider it a sponsorship. It could also be that the 1930 Fox Furrier commercial is not recognized as the first TV advertisement because it was an “illegal” ad (simply because it was a spot for the fur industry) and therefore was subject to a fine after it aired.

Despite the many changes in technology since the first TV Advertisement, the basic premise of running ads on television remains the same.

Kenji Urada

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kenji Urada (c. 1944 – July 4, 1981) was a Japanese engineer who was killed by a robot. Urada is often said to be the first person killed by a robot, however Robert Williams, a worker at a Ford Motor Company factory in Michigan, was killed by a robot two years earlier on January 25, 1979.

Urada was maintenance engineer at a Kawasaki Heavy Industries plant. While working on a broken robot, he failed to turn it off completely, resulting in the robot pushing him into a grinding machine with its hydraulic arm. He died as a result. The circumstances of his death were not made public until December 8, after an investigation by the labor standards bureau was completed.

Ronald Reagan

XL President of the United States: 1981 - 1989

Statement on Signing the Central Intelligence Agency Information Act

October 15, 1984

I am pleased to sign into law H.R. 5164, the Central Intelligence Agency Information Act. It represents an initial effort toward needed reform of Freedom of Information Act requirements. Under its provisions, the Central Intelligence Agency will avoid time-consuming review of certain operational files, which must in any case remain classified to protect intelligence sources and methods, and will devote its resources to expedited review of other information requests. Moreover, this law assures the public of continued access to information that is releasable.

This represents a small but important first step, accomplished in large part because of bipartisan cooperation in both houses. We are especially indebted to the leadership of Senators Goldwater and Moynihan and Representatives Boland and Robinson. I anticipate that in the future such relief will be expanded in scope. And I expect that it will become available to other agencies involved in intelligence, who also must protect their sources and methods and who likewise wish to avoid unnecessary and expensive paperwork.

Note: As enacted, H.R. 5164 is Public Law 98-477, approved October 15.

XL President of the United States: 1981 - 1989

Question-and-Answer Session With Students at Greenville Technical College in Greenville, South Carolina

October 15, 1984

The President. Now, you've been informing me, and I understand that now—I don't know whether I can do as well in informing you—but they tell me that you have some questions.

Dr. Grastie. Yes, sir. Thank you, Mr. President. The students decided to draw numbers, and Todd Ingle has the first question for you.

Q. Hello, Mr. President. My name is Todd Ingle, and I'm a student here at Greenville Technical College. And my question is: What part do you think computer-age design and computer-integrated manufacturing plays in industry today, and what part do you think it will play in the near future?

The President. Oh, I think it's all important. I think what we're seeing here is the same type of thing that earlier in our time made us the great industrial power we were. We gave our workers the advantage of tools, and with their ability and the tools, we became the great industrial power and outcompeted most of the world.

Well, the world has moved on. And I think it's this—just what we've seen here-that, well, I will say again, as in my remarks out there: You give Americans the tools they need and the opportunity of this kind, and they'll outcompete anyone in the world. And I think we're going to see that. Q. Thank you, Mr. President.

Q. Mr. President, my name is Tim Donald, and I would like to know why Congress cut $36.7 million from the appropriations bill you submitted for the Veterans Administration for the fiscal year of 1985?

The President. Well, all I can tell you is that they see things one way, and we see them another. They have certain targets that they think it's all right to cut and reduce, and yet they will turn right around and add to the spending that we have not asked for, because we believe that it wasn't as—or isn't as important. And this is about all that I can tell you.

Q. Thank you, sir.

Q. Mr. President, my name's John Sightler, and I was wondering what you thought the input of this high technology would be on the American industry on the world marketplace?

The President. Well, just what I've been seeing here, and what I've seen in some other plants—not schools, but plants where some of this is actually—or things of this kind are in operation—is, it's going to put us back in competition. When I see something here doing what it's doing, and I'm told how many times faster that is, and more accurate than the previous operation under older tools, and not computerized tools, then that—the per' unit cost of the item—is going to put us back there in the marketplace and, as I say, outcompeting the others. And I have been in a few plants recently to see examples of what this is.

One, recently, was a steel plant. They are building it; it isn't finished yet. The investment that they're risking is equal to about two-thirds of the total capital assets of the company. But they know that with this, timewise and costwise, they will be able to be competitive with that particular steel from any part of the world.

Q. Thank you.

Q. Hello, Mr. President. My name is Hobie Taylor. And I'd like to know how you view the future of high technology in technical institutes such as Greenville Tech?

The President. Well, I think that it is changing and reshaping our whole industrial pattern and our society, for that matter. I know right now that because of an educational institution like this, industries are being attracted to your area because your graduates will be there as an available skilled force. I've seen this also happen in one of the cities in Texas which has become quite a competitor with places like Silicon Valley in California and because of the educational institutions in the area that have guaranteed that skilled labor force.

Q. Thank you, sir.

Q. Hello again. I'm Perry Talley, Mr. President. I want to see how you see technical development in the South for the future?

The President. Well, in these recent years the Sunbelt has presented an attraction that has drawn people to where the Sunbelt is the fastest growing, population-wise, area in the United States. And this was certainly not true for a time. So then, when you add to the salubrious climate and the other advantages that have made people in the past decide they'd like to live—[laughing]-here, you add to that the opportunity for jobs and technical training and so forth down here, I think you're going to see further population shifts, and you're going to see maybe a change that—with all due respect to some of the other Southern attributes, King Cotton, and so forth—I think you might find yourself with another attraction that changes the whole nature of your work, your opportunities, and your industry here.

Q. Thank you, Mr. President.

Dr. Grastie. Mr. President, we have time for one more question. That will be from Mike Furillo.

Q. Mr. President, I work for Amco Lycoming Greer Division. And my question to you is, due to religious convictions and my responsibility to provide the best education possible, I've placed my children in a private Christian elementary school, and their tuition amounts to about 15 percent of my gross yearly income. And I'd like to know, will there be any legislation in the future that would give me a tax break on this tuition without it coming in the form of what the Federal Government would consider a subsidy, thereby giving the Government the right to regulate the school rules and school protocol?

The President. Well, you're looking at a representative of an administration that doesn't want the Federal Government being a senior partner. When, a little while ago in the briefing, we were talking about partnerships and participation, I almost wanted to add and say, "Yes, that's fine, we're very proud to be able to help in something of this kind; we don't want to be a senior partner." Now, that wasn't always true. There are other people who think government should be the senior partner.

But I have to say, with regard to what you were talking about and the tuition problem, I think the answer to that is very simple and it's very fair. We've tried to get it, and we've been unable to get it through the Congress, and that is that parents—education is compulsory in our country—and parents are entitled to have a choice of whether they want to utilize the public school system or do as you're doing and use an independent school system for their education.

But you have to pay your full share in taxes for the support of public education without you using or benefiting from that education at all. And then, in addition, you, for wanting to put them in another kind of school, you're penalized in having to pay the double expense.

I think that we should have a program of tuition tax credits in which fairness is reinstituted for parents who choose not to utilize the pubic schools. [See APP note below.] It isn't going to hurt the public schools any. It is going to aid the independent schools because they are now more competitive. And what's wrong with education being competitive? What's wrong with having school systems in which they have to shape up and turn out educated graduates or they're not going to get the support? So, we're going to continue fighting for tuition tax credits for the people like yourself.

Q. Thank you very much, Mr. President.

The President. All right.

EMILY: Where?

YOUNG: Well, it's a lot safer than other tours I've done.

EMILY: You've put your time in, Everett.

YOUNG: When this tour's over, I promise ...

EMILY (interrupting): You know what? (She glares at him for a moment, then looks away.) Never mind. Don't bother. You always end up choosing somewhere other than here.

(Young walks over to her and turns her around to face him.)

YOUNG: I'm not choosing my job over you. How can you even say that to me?

EMILY: I love you.

EMILY: But I can't wait any more.

Remarks at the Peace Officers Memorial Service

May 15, 2004

Thank you all very much. I'm so very honored to join all of you in paying respects—our respects to our Nation's fallen law enforcement officers. Every year on this day, we pause to remember the sacrifice and faithful services of officers lost in the line of duty throughout our Nation's history. And we add to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial the names of men and women lost in the past year as well as some who fell in the line of duty in other times. They accepted the hard responsibilities of a great and essential calling.

Our fallen officers died in service to justice and in defense of the innocent. They will never be forgotten by their comrades. They will never be forgotten by their country. And today, in the presence of so many families and friends they loved, our Nation pays tribute in pride and in gratitude.

Bush Chooses Prosecutor to Reshape FBI

Law: U.S. Atty. Mueller is picked to lead an agency that is struggling with its credibility. A bruising nomination fight is probably avoided.

July 06, 2001 JAMES GERSTENZANG and ERIC LICHTBLAU TIMES STAFF WRITERS

WASHINGTON — President Bush on Thursday chose Robert Mueller, an experienced government prosecutor who is now the U.S. attorney in San Francisco, to direct the FBI and wrestle with the spate of problems that has plagued the bureau.

In nominating Mueller, 56, for the 10-year term to succeed Louis J. Freeh, Bush took a course likely to avoid an angry, politically tinged confirmation battle in the Senate. Still, the hearing on Mueller's nomination is virtually certain to turn into an in-depth look at the agency's recent blunders.

As Mueller stood beside him in the White House Rose Garden on Thursday, Bush referred obliquely to the travails the bureau has encountered.

Prosecutor nominated to head FBI / `No-nonsense' ex-Marine

MICHAEL HEDGES, Houston Chronicle WashingtonBureau Staff

FRI 07/06/2001 Houston Chronicle


WASHINGTON - Robert S. Mueller III, a career prosecutor and former Marine with a reputation for making tough decisions, was called upon by President Bush on Thursday to resurrect an FBI beset by high-profile blunders.

After a lengthy search, Mueller was picked to head the FBI at a critical point in the history of the nation's largest law enforcement agency. Those who know him said he has the right qualities for the job.

"He is a tough, no-nonsense former Marine who does not brook incompetence," said former Washington U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova.

"One thing I would emphasize about Bob Mueller: He is a guy who will know how to fire people when that is necessary."

In a brief White House ceremony, Bush said, "The FBI must be ready to protect Americans from new types of criminals who will use modern technology to defraud and disrupt our lives . . . And it must do all this with a firm commitment to safeguarding the constitutional rights of our citizens."

The president said, "Bob Mueller's experience and character convinced me that he's ready to shoulder these responsibilities."

‘Weather bomb’ of higher winds, much colder temps could drop Sunday

By Mike Prager

The region’s soft slide into winter is about to get a lot more rugged.

The rain-snow pattern of the past few weeks could come to an end on Sunday with a “weather bomb.”

National Weather Service forecasters see a potential clash between moist Pacific air and cold polar air.

That could trigger what meteorologists call “bomb cyclogenesis.”

The term describes a fast drop in air pressure, and while uncommon in the Inland Northwest, it is possible Sunday.

If the weather bomb happens, the result will be strong winds, rain and snow, all just ahead of the season’s first hard freeze as temperatures descend into the teens early next week.

One forecaster said gusts on Sunday could potentially reach 45 to 50 mph, which is right on the edge of bringing down trees and power lines. Forecasters don’t agree that the wind will be that strong, however.

They do agree Sunday’s storm will bring snow down to lower elevations on Sunday night as the polar air arrives.

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The National Weather Service is warning that the Spokane region might get hit by what some people call a weather bomb this weekend.

The Spokesman-Review says that could trigger what meteorologists call "bomb cyclogenesis."

The term describes a fast drop in air pressure that will result in strong winds, rain and snow, all just ahead of the season's first hard freeze.

MCCOY: The devil with an asteroid! It won't get here for two months, Spock!

SPOCK: If we arrive at the deflection point in time, it may not get here at all.

MCCOY: In the meantime, what about Jim?

SPOCK: Once the asteroid has been diverted, we'll return here and resume the search.

MCCOY: That may be hours from now. He may be injured or dying.

SPOCK: (picking up two stoned to illustrate his point) Doctor, assume this is the planet we're on. This is the approaching asteroid. If we don't get to that deflection point in time, it will become physically impossible to divert this asteroid. In that case, everyone on this planet will die, including the captain.

MCCOY: Can a few more minutes matter, Spock?

SPOCK: In the time it's taken me to explain the problem, the asteroid has moved from here to here. The longer we delay, the less the likelihood of being able to divert it. Beam us up, Mister Scott.

The Stand - The Complete & Uncut Edition


Chapter 26


The Los Angeles Times ran only 26,000 copies of their one-page extra before the officers in charge discovered that they were not printing an advertising circular, as they had been told. The reprisal was swift and bloody. The official FBI story was that “radical revolutionaries,” that old bugaboo, had dynamited the L.A. Times ’ presses, causing the death of twenty-eight workers. The FBI didn’t have to explain how the explosion had put bullets in each of the twenty-eight heads, because the bodies were mingled with those of thousands of others, epidemic victims who were being buried at sea.

Yet 10,000 copies got out, and that was enough. The headline, in 36-point-type, screamed:

WEST COAST IN GRIP OF PLAGUE EPIDEMIC

Thousands Flee Deadly Superflu

Government Coverup Certain

LOS ANGELES—Some of the soldiers purporting to be National Guardsmen helping out during the current ongoing tragedy are career soldiers with as many as four ten-year pips on their sleeves. Part of their job is to assure terrified Los Angeles residents that the superflu, known as Captain Trips by the young in most areas, is “only slightly more virulent” than the London or Hong Kong strains… but these assurances are made through portable respirators. The President is scheduled to speak tonight at 6:00 PST and his press secretary, Hubert Ross, has branded reports that the President will speak from a set mocked up to look like the Oval Office but actually deep in the White House bunker “hysterical, vicious, and totally unfounded.” Advance copies of the President’s speech indicate that he will “spank” the American people for overreacting, and compare the current panic to that which followed Orson Welles’s “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast in the early 30s.

The Times has five questions it wishes the President would answer in his speech.

1. Why has the Times been enjoined from printing the news by thugs in army uniforms, in direct violation of its Constitutional right to do so?

2. Why have the following highways—US 5, US 10, and US 15—been blocked off by armored cars and troop carriers?

3. If this is a “minor outbreak of flu,” why has martial law been declared for Los Angeles and surrounding areas?

4. If this is a “minor outbreak of flu,” then why are barge-trains being towed out into the Pacific and dumped? And do these barges contain what we are afraid they contain and what informed sources have assured us they do contain—the dead bodies of plague victims?

5. Finally, if a vaccine really is to be distributed to doctors and area hospitals early next week, why has not one of the forty-six physicians that this newspaper contacted for further details heard of any delivery plans? Why has not one clinic been set up to administer flu shots? Why has not one of the ten pharmaceutical houses we called gotten freight invoices or government fliers on this vaccine?

We call upon the President to answer these questions in his speech, and above all we call upon him to end these police-state tactics and this insane effort to cover up the truth…

In Duluth a man in khaki shorts and sandals walked up and down Piedmont Avenue with a large smear of ash on his forehead and a hand-lettered sandwich board hanging over his scrawny shoulders.

The front read:

THE TIME OF THE DISAPPEARANCE IS HERE

CHRIST THE LORD RETURNETH SOON

PREPARE TO MEET YOUR GOD!

The back read:

BEHOLD THE HEARTS OF THE SINNERS WERE BROKEN

THE GREAT SHALL BE ABASED AND THE ABASED MADE GREAT

THE EVIL DAYS ARE AT HAND

WOE TO THEE O ZION

Four young men in motorcycle jackets, all of them with bad coughs and runny noses, set upon the man in the khaki shorts and beat him unconscious with his own sandwich board. Then they fled, one of them calling back hysterically over his shoulder: “Teach you to scare people! Teach you to scare people, you half-baked freak!”

For the past few days I have contemplated a discrepancy in a sort of daily journal I maintain. Beginning 01 October 2013 I began capturing a series of digital images of the environment outside my apartment windows. I don't have a routine for the time of day and I do it only at some point during the day when I remember it. I started doing mainly because in the heat of summer I like to go back and look at the images of those same places covered in snow.

What has been on my mind again but more recently is the day 01 January 2014. That day is missing from my collection. I went through the three months before that day and that day is the only one missing.

Vincent Mroz and Elroy Sites; two who responded to Truman assassination attempt in 1950

By Patricia Sullivan

THE WASHINGTON POST

August 7, 2008

Secret Service Special Agent Vincent Mroz and apprentice electrician Elroy Sites met Nov. 1, 1950, just moments after two Puerto Rican nationalists attempted to storm the Blair House in Washington and assassinate President Truman.

Mr. Mroz had just fired a well-considered shot at one of the would-be assassins from a second-floor window while his colleagues were in hot pursuit. He then ran through a basement and out, ready to continue the fight, only to find a fatally injured colleague nearby. Mr. Sites, the electrician, was knotting up a jacket as a makeshift pillow for the dying man.

The incident made headlines around the world and foreshadowed a 1954 attack by Puerto Rican nationalists on the U.S. Capitol. Except for a 2005 book on the incident, the Blair House assassination attempt is now almost forgotten.

Mr. Mroz, the last surviving officer involved in the 1950 shootout, died of lung cancer July 22 at his home in Adrian, Mich. He was 86.

Mr. Sites, one of the last significant witnesses of that day, died of coronary artery disease July 26 at his home in Westminster, Md. He was 77.

In 1950, hundreds immediately gathered at the scene, including swarms of photographers, nearby office workers, tourists and streetcar passengers. Few were close to the action, and all of them are now dead: The only remaining Secret Service agent from that case, Floyd Boring, died in February.

Mr. Mroz had been in the Secret Service for a little more than two years at the time, working the presidential protective detail. The White House was being renovated, so Truman was living at Blair House. The president was napping at 2:20 p.m. when the two would-be assassins approached from opposite directions, with a hazy but firm intent to kill him.

The sequence of events is laid out in “American Gunfight: The Plot to Kill Harry Truman” by Stephen Hunter, a former Washington Post film critic, and John Bainbridge Jr.

Mr. Mroz, who had just rotated into the service's office, right over the eastern entrance to Blair House, heard gunshots and looked out the window. He spotted two colleagues and Oscar Collazo, one of the gunmen, running and shooting. Mr. Mroz fired at Collazo, who seemed to disappear. Mr. Mroz then dashed out through a basement corridor and up a set of stairs to approach the scene from a better angle.

When he came out the side door to the adjoining Lee House, he found, to his shock, that “there was nobody to shoot. Everybody was down,” Hunter and Bainbridge wrote. What he did see was a civilian pulling a seriously injured White House police officer, Leslie Coffelt, out of a guardhouse.

The civilian was Elroy Sites, 19, who had been fixing an outdoor sign at a furniture company about 480 feet away. At the sound of gunshots, he ran toward Blair House, arriving before the shooting had ended, and spotted the White House police officer slumped in the phone booth-size guardhouse.

“I heard Coffelt moaning and I went over and he looked up at me and raised his pistol,” Sites told Bainbridge. “I just took my foot and pushed the pistol over. . . . I had just lifted him up and I was trying not to hurt him. . . .

“This guy came up and told him to roll up his coat,” he said. “I made a pillow, somebody came out the door. . . . I helped put him on the stretcher, and I gave the police captain his gun. They put him in the ambulance. Then I went around and worked on the sign.”

He testified in the murder trial of Oscar Collazo, and then went on about his life. Collazo was sentenced to death, but Truman commuted his sentence. Collazo died in 1994. His partner, Griselio Torresola, had died at the scene.

Elroy Reynolds Sites, a native of Altoona, Pa., moved to Washington as a boy but spent enough time hunting that he became an expert marksman. He graduated from Cardozo High School in Washington, D.C., where he was on the swim team and the shooting team. He also served in the Army. He was a member of the National Rifle Association.

He worked for himself most of his life as a master electrician and then went into the construction, heating and air-conditioning trades. He also worked as a deputy sheriff in Montgomery County for seven years. His wife, Mary Louise Sites, died in 1989.

Survivors include eight children: Kathleen Horan of Gaithersburg, Md., Anne Vane of Frederick, Md., Ronald Sites of Silver Spring, Md., Lauren Chaffin of Annapolis, Md., David Sites of Fulton, Md., Christine Ryman of Kearneysville, W.Va., Carolyn Arensmeyer of Germantown, Md., and Mark Sites of Tucker, Ga.; a sister; 25 grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.

His family said that Mr. Sites, who liked to talk about his years as a deputy sheriff, rarely talked about the Truman assassination incident until the Hunter-Bainbridge book was published.

Mr. Mroz was more than 6 feet tall, physically imposing but a graceful dancer with large hands and a level gaze. He looked like a Secret Service agent, someone in the higher ranks noted, and he had a college degree, which was not a given for agents in those days.

He spent 26 years in the Secret Service, and he had been a Marine in World War II, so he knew how to handle guns and a crime scene. After Coffelt was loaded into an ambulance, Mr. Mroz noticed a little man curled up in a fetal position in the hedges. It was the body of Torresola, who had shot three men that afternoon and whom Truman might have seen when he rose from his nap and looked out the window.

When Mr. Mroz removed the Luger pistol from Torresola's body and searched his pockets, he found two magazines of unused ammunition.

Vincent Peter Mroz was born in Stanley, Wis., and grew up in East Chicago, Ind. He attended Michigan State University on a football scholarship but interrupted his college life to enlist in the Marine Corps during World War II. Before he went to war in the Pacific, he was sent to the University of Michigan by the Marines, and he became one of the few football players to get an athletic letter from both schools.

After the war ended, Mr. Mroz graduated from Michigan State and went directly into the Secret Service.

He worked in Chicago before coming to Washington in 1950. Assigned to the permanent protection detail for Presidents Truman and Eisenhower, Mroz later rose through the ranks. He ended his career with the Secret Service in 1974 as deputy assistant director of the uniformed division.

He was an instructor for Montgomery school bus drivers until 1986, then moved to Naples, Fla., where he became director of the background investigative unit of the Collier County Sheriff's Department. He moved to Michigan in 2002, a year after retiring for a third time.

The Treasury Department gave Mr. Mroz a certificate of meritorious civilian service for his actions during the Truman assassination attempt.

In brief: Snow, rain, wind coming our way

A winter storm approaching the Inland Northwest is shaping up to be a meteorological “bomb,” a forecaster at the National Weather Service said Thursday.

A deepening low-pressure system migrating from Alaska was expected to park itself off the coast today, triggering a succession of snow, rain, wind, drizzle, freezing drizzle, more snow and arctic winds – roughly in that order – through Sunday.

“It’s a bomb,” forecaster John Livingston said. “It’s a rapidly deepening system, very vigorous.”

Arctic air and northeast wind are expected to make Sunday, Monday and Tuesday brutally cold, with highs struggling to reach 10 degrees.

Wind chills could reach minus 27 degrees in Spokane and elsewhere Monday morning, and low temperatures could bottom out Tuesday morning at minus 15 if skies are clear overnight.

The Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for much of the Inland Northwest, predicting nearly 11 inches of snow in Spokane and 9 inches in Coeur d’Alene. The heaviest snow should come overnight tonight into Saturday morning.

Cold is expected to persist throughout next week.

Record snowfall buries region, stalls services

By Mike Prager

Snowplow crews worked furiously Thursday against a wintry onslaught that dropped record amounts of snow over the Inland Northwest, repeating a pattern left from the brutal 2007-’08 winter.

At nearly 2 feet, the snow was so deep that it forced Spokane crews to focus on major arterial routes in an effort to keep the city from being completely choked.

Stores and government offices closed. Workers stayed home on the advice of authorities on both sides of the state line.

Forecasters warned that there may not be much time to dig out, and the work will have to be done in single-digit temperatures today and Saturday.

Another snowstorm could bring 5 inches or more Sunday with yet another storm in the offing for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

Spokane ended up with 23.3 inches over 34 hours ending at 4 p.m. Thursday. Coeur d’Alene had 25 inches by Thursday morning. Other locations had more.

It was the most snow received in both Spokane and Coeur d’Alene in a 24-hour period since record-keeping began.

The snowstorm resulted from “the alignment of everything,” said National Weather Service forecaster John Livingston: An unusual combination of arctic cold and Pacific moisture gathered momentum Wednesday as a storm front stalled over the region.

Air traffic at Spokane International Airport was beginning to take off after long delays and some cancellations. Crews were working to clear runways, taxiways and gates, spokesman Todd Woodard said.

The Washington State Patrol responded to almost 200 collisions in Eastern Washington on Thursday, though only minor injuries were reported. Troopers also responded to more than 100 disabled vehicles.

Police throughout the region warned drivers to stay off the roads except for emergencies.

Residents were being stranded in their driveways because snow was piled so high on side streets that it high-centered many vehicles, mostly passenger cars.

“All hills, particularly those coming off of the South Hill, are treacherous,” city spokeswoman Marlene Feist said in one of several press releases from City Hall. “The best routes off the South Hill are the Ray/Thor and Grand/Stevens corridors. On the North Side, the best routes are Division Street and the Maple/Ash corridor.”

City plow crews worked to carve emergency routes on major arterials.

This guy Al...
He keeps asking all these questions

My instinct usually tells me

And there's something wrong.
So I had him followed.
He's a Secret Service agent, Frank.
