London (D2): Right Posh

Things Must Be Slow Bookings must be way down if even I got a suite at the Hilton. Trust me, not complaining here.

Drums in the Distance I live a stone’s throw from the “Hinkley Hilton” in Washington, DC, where the Jodie Foster obsessed assassin nearly murdered Ronald Reagan in 1981.

Schaitberger MDA Shakedown: “Unprecedented”
Have you heard the saying that it is like trying to squeeze blood out of a turnip. Eric, you may be squeezing a beet thinking the red juice is blood. You are looking dumber by the day. A lot more than me keep asking you where is the beef?

Marv, Who luvs ya? But, wake up and smell the coffee. Do you have any idea how the trial board system works? The DVPs decide whether or not the charges go forward. Yes, Marv--those DVPs, the same ones he owns. The IAFF is far beyond internal reform. The calvary is now required. xoxo--Eric
