Dear Al

I am reading your story about beatles having a larf with you and bob dylan reading it again it fascinates me, how strange is a role in 'life' which you have it also scares me another one of your articles, about some party held for benefit of Phil Spector (I may be mistaken) is scary as hell "Grotty" as John Lennon would say

Don't you think so?

Thank you for sharing your knowledge

sincerely

Andrei, from Russia

I think Arnie is the best thing to happen to CA in my lifetime. If you want to know why, I suggest you get a copy of the movie Pumping Iron, and watch it very carefully.

SARA DYLAN'S BIRTHDAY

Subject: mixed up confusion
Date: Tue, 09 Dec 2003 19:06:05 -0800
From: Cathy Hand cat@foobox.com 
To: al aronowitz <info@blacklistedjournalist.com>

I found a purported birth date for Sara Dylan, in Sounes' biography Down the Highway, which I am just now reading. I also just read about your introducing the Beatles to Dylan -- wow! What a thrill that must have been. Must still be. I am a little thrilled just to be writing to you. And makes me all the more eager to connect with your chart.

As for Sara's data, something is wrong somewhere. Sounes claims that, although other sources have given her birth year as 1940, it is really 1939. He doesn't say how he knows that. But Heylin's biography Behind the Shades Revisited, which gives no date, says that Sara is a triple Scorpio -- and he knows what that means
because he spells it out: "sun, moon and rising sign". But there is no way she could be a triple Scorpio if she was born on Oct. 28 in either 1939 or 1940. The moon was in Scorpio Oct. 30 - Nov. 1 in 1940; and Nov. 9 - 11 in 1939. It was in Scorpio on Oct. 28 in 1935... and not again until 1943.

So... she, or someone, deliberately gave out wrong data; someone got "triple Scorpio" confused (there were 3 planets in Scorpio in 1939) and Heylin didn't check; a typo occurred somewhere; or something else, who knows.

Best,
Cathy 

P. S. Any chance you know Bobby Neuwirth's birth date? Thanks for your time  ##

SIG HEIL WINE

Subject: For the bad taste Christmas file

Bad publicity sends Hitler wine sales soaring
http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_845186.html 

[Excerpts]

Christmas sales of Adolf Hitler wine have reached a record high thanks to publicity generated by attempts to ban it in both Brussels and Berlin.

Wine-grower Alessandro Lunardelli started selling the bottles of Hitler wine in 1995 after the success of his Mussolini label back home in Italy.

The Hitler wine is on the market with the slogan "One People, One Empire, One Leader" and has variations with pictures of Rommel and Goering.

Lunardelli rejects any allegations that he is promoting fascism and Nazism and points out he also offers bottles with pictures of Marx, Stalin, Lenin and Che Guevara.

An email for Molly Ivans,

Dear Miss Ivans,

I just read your column in the Jacksonville Times-Union about Howard Dean. I share your thoughts about Dean and the rest of the candidates on the slate. Mr. Dean has been critized by the Republicans as losing his temper. Boy, do I love that part of his character, we need someone who can kick ass when it's necessary. Poor Kerry is like a cartoon character. Even live he has no expressions. Oh well.

What do you think of the pundits claims that the Democrats don't have a message? I keep hearing this and wonder what they mean by that. I listen to Public Radio most of the day (while I'm doing whatever it is retired people do), so it's not like I'm paying attention to Rush. I'd love to hear your ideas on what the heck kind of message the Democrats are supposed to be putting out.

Keep up the good work. I'm thrilled to be able to finally get your column in Jacksonville. The paper is reputated to come in 280,000 in a field of (However many newspapers are published in the US.) so they are doing one thing right. The aforementioned data is attributed to a waiter at a local eatery, so you know it's right
on.

FOR MOLLY IVINS

Subject: Article (on 12/12 -"is america being Looted")
Date: Fri, 12 Dec 2003 09:35:00 -0500
From: "Kenneth Hoopes" khoopes01@earthlink.net 
To: info@blacklistedjournalist.com 

I'd like to othank Molly for an excellent article. The current administration (Legislative and Executive) are
committing so many injustices that we will probably see more articles like this.

Although these articles point to the fact that something is terribly wrong, they do not specifically identify the criminals. What I would like to see is  
- the nature of the injustice 
- the effect of the injustice
- the perpetrators of the injustice (by name and party affiliation)

As an example, on Ralph Nader's web page, he talks about the rich getting the best from Bush's tax cuts, but goes further and spells out how much a year these two get from from the tax cuts.

If we do this, the issues would be brought out during the campaign and we can run the perpetrators out of office come November. If you don't have the time of people to do it, perhaps Nader's Raiders could help.

A FAKE

Subject: fake turkey

From: JNeworth@aol.com 
To: info@blacklistedjournalist.com 

you gotta write about this. saw it on peter jennings nightly news Wednesday. you know the photo op with bush holding that huge turkey platter. something about that seemed odd to me at the time. the platter was so big, and his arms seemed to be under so little stress from holding it. Well, guess what, the turkey was a fake! (just like his whole administration!)

1. niger uranium - fake
2. wmd - fake
3. misson accomplished sign - fake
4. aircraft carrier made to look at sea (when only a few miles from san diego) - fake  ##

"All addicts are worthless scum, they should be removed from society. They are only addicted to being bums, not to drugs. I'd say give them life imprisonment but that would be a waste of tax dollars. Druggies should be put to death on the first offense without exception. But there's little chance of that since all the liberals want to spend your tax dollars reforming the druggies. That's crap! There's no reforming these social leeches, these poor excuses for humanity. If they want to take poison I say let them, and let's give them a proper final dose."
