I always find it so amusing when a bunch of convicts, black sheep and
discarded gentry whose morals made them unacceptable in their own
country, plus a bunch of people who were either starving, or whose
religious attitudes were so uptight that they couldn't be tolerated ,
arrive in a place teeming with natural resources (and virtually empty
apart from a few asiatics, who treat them very nicely and help stop them
dying of stupidity), and then proceed to breed like rabbits, commit
genocide on the natives, rape the resources and turn it into the
tackiest example of vulgar ostentation since Eve discovered bling, have
the nerve to assert that the only thing they actually know, making
money, is somehow indicative of superior religious political and moral
Or that a tradition of racism, genocide and slavery is somehow liberating.
Oh well. It's all over now, baby blue. The resources have run out, and
china wants its cash back.
And those who confuse being in the right place at the right time with
innate superiority, are in for a rude awakening.
More mindless ranting from the burnt out hippie alcoholic. You might
as well stop setting followup-to: to alt.flame, asshole. I know you
think you're smart, but you've burnt out too many neurons with the pot
and other drugs.

He was drinking copious quantities of vodka in those days, and he
wasn't all that funny in person. In fact, he was quite rude and
unpleasant. His then wife, Harriet, however was a sweetheart, and some
of his friends were fun to be around.

I think the cocaine was probably just to perk him up so he could drink
more. I didn't really like him very much, as he spent most of his time
scowling, and being very rude to everyone. The upside was that his
"posse" included some interesting and fun characters. Among them was a
fellow named Ben McGowan, who was in (Kawasaki Lets the Good Times
Roll) advertising. He was a real character, and always on board for
adventure. Another was a young and relatively unknown sports writer
named Mike Lupica. He's since become very well known.

IIRC, Mike Lupika was already a sports writer for the NY Post when he was on
IitM. He went up from there, but hardly an unknown in the NY area. I always
thought Charles McCord was the brains in the outfit. Imus was too stoned. I
remember the time he, on a break, went into the janitor's closet, thinking it
was the men's room. He was so blotto never knew any better. McCord had to go
find him. I think that's when he got the "opportunity" in Cleveland.
