QUESTION: Who was elected President, Bush or Gore? If you don't know, then ask yourself which one was more likely in the first 100 days to boost spending for Bill Clinton's AmeriCorps program by $282 million? ANSWER: George W. Bush. Some had predicted that Bill Clinton's "domestic Peace Corps" program would be quickly abolished, but, instead, Bush has requested a funding increase of $282 million. [Source: USA Today, April 10, 2001] Could it be that there really is no difference between the two major parties? Or, perhaps it was horse-trading. Or, perhaps the politicians are just trying to keep the people dependent upon government. Nah, that's cynical. Or is it?

Reflect well on our alma mater, this week, every week, in any and every way possible, large or small. God bless.

"Collector-in-chief" John

Four years ago march 25th 1996, I wrote a letter to Civil rights, Pope John Paul the second, at the Vatican in Rome, Cardinal O’Connor at the Archdiocese in New York City and the Department of Education in Albany New York asking for help,  with a problem concerning my son; the Tennis Coach; The Head man of the Dormitory; the RA and the Administration at Manhattan college in Riverdale New York. Our son had just turned 18yrs old. The Cardinal’s was not able to help, he informed us that Manhattan College was not under the Jurisdiction of the Archdiocese of New York. The results reached by Civil Rights and the college was devastating.  The College admitted to no wrongdoing. Erick was simply stripped of his scholarship and was stopped from pursuing other colleges and Tennis teams by his Tennis coach. On my son’s 21st birthday, September 1998, not knowing, he was given LSD in his food or drink. It was a disaster.  He did not sleep for three weeks after that.  He was complaining of having strange thoughts that was telling him to kill himself.

On the morning of Friday August 13th 1999, we were awakened, by his Dad’s screams. Our son's window was wide open and  he was lying five floors down underneath our windows and he was not moving. The thoughts got the better of him.  The nightbefore we all had gone to sleep at about 4am. My husband was up at 7 am. He was gone……Dead……I didn’t believe it...Something was deadly wrong. and I was going to find out what had gone wrong.

HEADLINE: OBITUARIES; Edward G. Giery, 73, Korean War Veteran
BYLINE: By Helen Vasilopoulos; STAFF WRITER

Edward G. Giery, a Korean War veteran and an engineer for 52 years, died on March 21 of lung cancer at his Gainesville, Fla., home. He was 73.

Giery was born the eldest of three children to Edward and Mary Alice Giery of Flushing. In 1945, he attended the Manhattan College of Engineering for six months before leaving to enroll in the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point. He graduated in 1949 with a bachelor's degree in marine engineering.

For one year, Giery sailed to and from South Africa as a third mate for the Farrell Steamship Lines based in Brooklyn. When he returned to New York in 1950, Giery began working as an engineer for the Foster Wheeler Engineering Corp. in Manhattan. That same year, he married Daisy Lehtila and two years later, moved to Kings Park. The couple had eight children. "He was very devoted to his family," said his brother, Richard A. Giery of Bay Shore.

During the Korean War, Giery served as a lieutenant in the Navy. He joined in 1952 and was sent back and forth from San Diego to Japan on navy supply ships. He was discharged in 1954 and continued to work at Foster Wheeler Engineering. He received a meritorious service award.

Giery moved to Milwaukee, Wis., in 1960 where he was senior engineer for Cleaver Brooks Engineering Corp. He left the company eight years later and became president of Aqua Chemical Corp. in Milwaukee. After he retired in 1990, Giery moved to Tampa, Fla., with his wife. He remained very active in the Alumni Association of the Merchant Marine Academy and the Knights of Columbus in Milwaukee, his brother said.

Besides his brother, Giery is survived by his wife, Daisy Giery of Gainesville, Fla.; three sons, Edward Giery of Oak Creek, Wis., John Giery of Lakeside, Calif., and Richard Giery of Saint Simons Island, Ga.; five daughters, Margaret Giery of Tampa, Fla., Kathleen Giery of Gainesville, Fla., Pattie Spillman of Middleton, Wis., Elizabeth Schuppie of Reston, Va., and Mary Smith of Stamford, Conn.; and 10 grandchildren. Another brother, Dave Giery, died in 1997.

A memorial ceremony will take place on July 14 at the Merchant Marine Academy where his ashes will be dispersed in the waters of Long Island Sound off the academy grounds. Donations in Giery's memory may be made to the Hospice of North Central Florida in Gainesville, 352-378-2121 or the Alumni Association of the Merchant Marine Academy 516-482-5274.

Marist must forfeit 3 games after fight
Play at plate incites altercation
By Sean T. McMann
Poughkeepsie Journal

The Marist College baseball team tagged out a Manhattan College runner Sunday, but both teams were called out -- out of their next three games following an altercation that resulted from the close play.

The forfeitures are the result of a ''bang-bang'' play at the plate involving Marist catcher Ben Cueto and Manhattan infielder Michael Lorento during the sixth inning of Sunday's Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game, hosted by the Jaspers at Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx. That game also becomes a loss in both schools' record books.

After the close play at the plate, players from both teams left the bench, earning a three-game suspension, in accordance with NCAA rules.

''I'm disappointed in the baseball program, that they allowed themselves for this to happen,'' said Tim Murray, Marist's athletic director. ''But, we're dealing with young people who are going to make mistakes, and that's what this was.''

Three automatic losses

As a result of the forfeitures, the Town of Poughkeepsie's Red Foxes will forfeit today's game at New York Tech, Wednesday's home game against Wagner and the first game of Saturday's doubleheader at MAAC rival Siena.

''I think it's a big thing,'' said John Szefc, coach of defending MAAC champion Marist. ''We go from 14-6 in the league to 14-8. It will definitely affect us big one way or another.''

The Jaspers will also feel the sting of Monday's ruling.

''It takes us out of the playoffs,'' Manhattan coach Steve Trimper said. ''This puts a real damper on everyone's thoughts. It's a blow right here at the end (of the season).''

The visiting Red Foxes led 2-1 with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning Sunday when Manhattan junior Wendell Anderson stepped to the plate with Jaspers on first and second.

Anderson hit a double to center field, allowing one Jasper to score from second, while senior Lorento headed home.

Marist shortstop Steve O'Sullivan made ''a great relay throw,'' Trimper said, but Lorento, who ''was intent on diving head-first,'' pulled up late, colliding with Marist catcher Cueto, Trimper said.

''It was like running into a wall,'' Trimper said. ''The catcher did a heck of a job and held on to the ball. It was a legal, bang-bang play.

''The two of them landed on top of each other about five feet behind home plate. The two players involved got heated after the play. There was a little bit of a shoving match. There wasn't even a punch thrown.''

After players from both teams left their respective benches, Trimper said, both umpires ejected every player on each team.

''They were doing it for a safety reason,'' Trimper said. ''John and I were fine with it (Sunday). Now we're sitting there, forfeiting games.''

Szefc, Murray and Trimper all used the same term -- ''unfortunate incident'' -- to describe Sunday's brawl.

So did Shawn Brennan.

''Both programs should be commended for addressing the issue and being proactive,'' the MAAC's assistant commissioner said. Brennan said that Sunday's ''isolated incident'' was rare for the conference, and shouldn't be seen as representative of the Marist and Manhattan programs. ''It's just one of those things that happens when you have competitions throughout the year.''

The NCAA statute regarding fighting, Brennan said, mandated the forfeitures.

''We followed the NCAA rule,'' he said. ''It was pretty straightforward. It's very important to have guidelines when you have as many athletes, teams, schools and programs as we do.''

Both coaches said they respected the NCAA's rule, as well as the need for it.

''It's a good rule,'' Szefc said. ''There's really not a place for fighting in college sports. The rule is strict the way it is so people won't break it. I know that our program will be more aware of the situation, not that we weren't in the past. Stuff like that can't happen again.''

While Trimper, too, said he understood the fighting rule, he said Sunday's ''unfortunate incident'' wasn't a typical fight.

''I don't think either of us saw a punch thrown,'' Trimper said, recalling his phone conversation Monday with Szefc. ''You wish the rules had some room for a gray area.''

Murray said that gray area or not, his Red Foxes (26-17-1 overall, 14-8 MAAC) know the rules that govern college athletics.

Additionally, the athletic director said Marist holds its student-athletes to a high level on and off the field. Hence, he was doubly ''disappointed'' with Sunday's incident.

''Our athletes understand what we expect,'' Murray said. ''Unfortunately, this will be a learning experience for them. With all experiences, there are consequences.''

Szefc said he didn't know exactly how losing the three games would affect his Red Foxes as they head toward the MAAC tournament, held at Fishkill's Dutchess Stadium May 17-19.

''It's a tough thing for them because they put a lot of work and effort into the season,'' the sixth-year coach said. ''This is probably the most (adversity) we've had in a while. You hope they learn a lesson. You hope it toughens them up too.''

In the bottom of the sixth inning, with the game tied at 2-2, officials called it a forfeit for both teams due to fighting, according to a statement from Marist. The fight began after a Manhattan athlete was called out for interfering with the catcher.

Among Marist's forfeits is a Saturday game against Siena.

HEADLINE: Hawks' Kalnas has will to win

IN a sport in which strength and size are paramount, Monmouth University's Jon Kalnas doesn't physically measure up to his competition. All he does, however, is throw the shot farther than anyone in school and conference history.

The junior from Greenwich, Gloucester County, holds both indoor and outdoor school records, is the defending Northeast Conference champion indoors and outdoors and became the Hawks' first track and field NCAA Division I All-American after finishing 11th at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships at the University of Arkansas in March.

His throw of 61 feet, 7 inches at the University of Virginia Invitational April 14 is the ninth best in the country this year.

Kalnas' success is a tribute to his dedication.

"In high school, the main thing I did was just train," he said.

"All I wanted to do was train, either lifting or doing drills. Most of my life is throwing."

His life as a thrower began as a freshman at Paulsboro High School when his uncle, a field athlete, introduced him to the sport. He was good enough to place third nationally as a senior.

Kalnas attended Manhattan College, where he was the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference shot put champion indoors and outdoors. A disagreement with the coach about technique and a lack of training amenities, as well as a girlfriend who intended to attend Monmouth, led to his decision to transfer.

At 6-0 and 245 pounds, Kalnas isn't considered particularly strong and isn't as tall as most of his opponents. Height, particularly the length of the arm, comes into play more in his second event, the discus. Kalnas is not only the NEC's leading shot putter outdoors this year, but also its top discus thrower with a toss of 163-9.

"There are guys who compete right now who can bench (press) two or three hundred pounds more than me that I throw farther than," he said.

Hard work is important, but it is Kalnas' technique and intense will to win that make him the athlete he is.

"He has all the right abilities to be a very, very good shot putter," said Monmouth field coach Mark Gottdenker.

"One of the things that Jon does that's always amazed me is that I can say something once and he can incorporate it into his technique on the very next throw. Unless you're just a ridiculously tremendous athlete, you can't expect to get good results without a decent level of intensity. He's focused."

And his focus is on repeating his indoor All-America performance, this time at the NCAA Outdoor Championships May 30 to June 2 in Eugene, Ore.

HEADLINE: 'Tax Doctor' Accused Of Working for Mob

In West Palm Beach, Fla., Peter Tarangelo is a successful accountant known as the "Tax Doctor," who writes articles on offshore investment and boasts of more than 1,200 clients. But according to federal prosecutors, the New York-area native, who has an MBA from Wagner College in Staten Island, has led a double life,secretly working as an in-house financial adviser for the Genovese crime family. Tarangelo, 43, was one of 45 arrested Wednesday in a wide-ranging case against the Genovese clan and members of the four other New York families. "Tarangelo... specializes in insulating huge caches of organized crime assets overseas," prosecutors charged in papers filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn. "He is an expert in hiding money overseas and has control of tremendous wealth outside of the U.S." His lawyer could not be reached yesterday, but an official at Tarangelo's firm declined to comment. Tarangelo, who earned his undergraduate degree at Manhattan College in the Bronx, says on his company Web site that he has represented 150 clients in IRS audits and prepared 18,000 tax returns during a 20-year career. He recently wrote an article titled "Offshore Tax Solutions" for an industry periodical. "Our members are Doctors, Lawyers, Professionals, Business people and just plain hard working folks that are concerned with their finances, their future and their retirement," the Web site states. According to an indictment, Tarangelo helped Genovese family captain Salvatore Aparo, known as "Sammy Meatballs," and others launder a stolen $140,000 check last year through banks in the Bahamas. Genovese member Thomas Cafaro, the son of turncoat Vincent "Fish" Cafaro, and Pasquale Falcetti arranged for Tarangelo to help move the check through "anonymous bank accounts" there, prosecutors allege. Last June, Tarangelo flew to the Bahamas with Cafaro, where the accountant deposited the check, prosecutors allege. The funds were then transferred to an account attributed to Zenith Investments, a firm controlled by Tarangelo. The same indictment charges Falcetti in a scheme to extort cash from businesses on the Miami waterfront. One business forked over $100,000 to avoid a strike by union workers. Tarangelo now faces money-laundering and racketeering charges, court records show. If convicted, he faces up to 25 years in prison.

Her working relationship with Anne Donovan, named Sting head coach last week, began in 1997 when Donovan was an assistant coach for the USA Women's World Championship Qualifying Team.

"Trudi Lacey is an experienced coach at every level," Donovan said.

Lacey was an assistant at Maryland (1996-97), and spent eight years (1989-96) as head coach at South Florida.

Lacey was also head coach for two years (1987-88) at Francis Marion, where her teams were 53-12.

She was an assistant at Manhattan College (1981), James Madison (1982)  and N.C. State (1983-84).

Lacey twice was N.C. State's most valuable player, and is the only player in history to earn All-ACC tournament honors four consecutive years (1977-1981).

Kareem Grant and Darnell Tyler to Join Jaspers Next Year

RIVERDALE, NY – Manhattan College men’s basketball head coach Bobby Gonzalez announced two key members of his 2001-2002 recruiting class on Tuesday afternoon.   Small forward Kareem Grant (St. Thomas More/Middletown, CT) and center Darnell Tyler (Tallahassee Junior College/Long Branch, NJ) are set to join Coach Gonzalez and the Jaspers next season.

Grant, a 6-6 small forward, played under Head Coach Jere Quinn at St. Thomas More in Oakdale, CT.  Last season, Grant averaged 17 ppg and helped St. Thomas More to a New England Prep School Athletic Conference Class A Championship.

“With Kareem’s success in high school both on the court and in the classroom as an honor roll student, he should be able to make a quick adjustment to the college game,” commented Coach Gonzalez.  “As a 6-6 wing player, he will fit into our up-tempo pressure defense style of play and he is a threat to score every time he touches the ball.”

Tyler, deemed by Coach Gonzalez to be the first true center signed by Manhattan since his arrival, stands an intimidating 6-9, 250 pounds.  Originally from Long Branch, NJ, Tyler spent two years at Tallahassee Junior College averaging 12 points and eight rebounds per game.

“Darnell is the first true center Manhattan has had since I’ve been here,” commented Coach Gonzalez.  “He should be an inside force in a conference where true centers can have a big impact on the game.  He is so big, that he is tough to keep off the boards, he is like a runaway freight train.”

The two signees join Justin Gatling (Bishop O’Connell High School/Arlington, VA) as players committed to Manhattan for next season.

Senior Jasmine Whu Concludes Career With Met Title
Finishes With Team Record 124 Career Wins

FLUSHING, NY – Manhattan College senior co-captain Jasmine Whu (Staten Island, NY) concluded her extraordinary tennis career in grand style by teaming with Nanaxhi Chavez-Geller (Oaxace, Mexico) to win the #1 doubles championship at the Metropolitan Collegiate Tennis Conference (MCTC) Championships on Sunday afternoon.  The two players defeated Martha Barrett and Barbara Affersholt of Stony Brook, 6-4, 3-6, 6-2, in a marathon 3-hour final.

The win was the 124th singles or doubles victory of Whu’s career, extending her own team record.  The win also capped off an extraordinary year for the Whu-led Jaspers who finished with a team record 13 wins against only four losses, won a team-record 7 straight matches this spring, and came up one exciting match short of a MAAC championship and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

“Jasmine has been an extraordinary part of this team over the past four years,” commented Head Coach Jeff Wyshner.  “Before she came to Manhattan, no player had ever reached 80 wins in a career, but Jasmine completely rewrote the Team’s record book.  She is the single biggest reason our program has reached the competitive level in the Northeast that it has.”

The win was also Chavez-Geller’s 100th of her career despite having her senior year to play.  Ironically, Whu also won her 100th match in the final match of her junior year, a second singles championship match at last year’s MCTC.

Baseball Sweeps Doubleheader From Lafayette

RIVERDALE, NY – The Manhattan College baseball team evened its season record at 17-17 with a doubleheader sweep of Lafayette on Wednesday afternoon.  The Jaspers scored two runs in the first inning of the first game on RBI doubles by Wendell Anderson (East Hartford, CT) and Eric Sullivan (Ronkonkoma, NY), and Mike Sullivan (Stony Point, NY) pitched 5.2 innings of 2-hit, 1-run ball to get his second win of the year.  David Preston (Albany, NY) got the final out of the sixth inning and retired Lafayette in order in the seventh for his first save.

In the second game, Lafayette scored one in the top of the first, but Manhattan answered in the bottom of the second on a leadoff walk to Anderson and two consecutive singles to E. Sullivan and Paul Pulidore (Rockville Centre, NY).  With one run in and two on, Lafayette pitcher Marcus Ward shut down the Jaspers without allowing another run.  The game would remain scoreless until the bottom of the seventh when E. Sullivan singles and scored the game-winning run on a walk-off single by Matt Cucurullo (Valhalla, NY).  After getting his first save in the first game, David Preston pitched 1.2 innings for his second win of the year.

Eric Sullivan finished the day 3-6 with a double, 1 RBI, and 1 run scored.  Wendell Anderson finished 2-5 with a double, a walk, 2 runs scored, and 1 RBI.

Lafayette dropped to 9-28 on the year with the losses.  Manhattan returns to action this weekend when they host Marist at 12:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday.

Women’s Lacrosse Drops 8-3 Decision To Sacred Heart

RIVERDALE, NY – The Sacred Heart Pioneers spoiled Senior Day for the Manhattan College Women’s Lacrosse Team on Wednesday afternoon.  The Pioneers scored five unanswered goals in the second half to defeat the Lady Jaspers 8-3.

Manhattan had honored its four seniors, Liz Tiffany (Blauvelt, NY), Maureen Tiffany (Blauvelt, NY), Jessica Alzate (West Hartford, CT), and Moira Muthig (Nyack, NY), before the game, and early on the Lady J’s seemed to have momentum as Liz Tiffany scored the first goal of the game and assisted another to help Manhattan take a 3-1 lead.  Sacred Heart scored twice in the final seven minutes of the first half to knot the game at three at the intermission, and the Pioneers dominated the second half as they pulled away for the 8-3 win.

With the loss, Manhattan ended its regular season 4-12, but they will enter this weekend’s MAAC playoffs as the #4 seed where they will face top-seeded Fairfield on Saturday.


April 23, 2001

RIVERDALE, NY – The Manhattan College men’s and women’s tennis teams both finished second at the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championships this past weekend.  It was the first time either team had qualified for the championship match.

The second-seeded men lost Sunday’s championship match to top-seeded Marist, 5-2, after winning a dramatic 4-3 match with St. Peter’s on Saturday afternoon.  Ajay Kumar (New York, NY), who had won the decisive match against St. Peter’s in a third set tiebreak, continued his outstanding play with a 6-4, 6-3 win at number four singles.  He teamed with Nick Gravagna (Whitestone, NY) to win at second doubles, but Marist won both first and third doubles to win the doubles point.  The only other win for the Jaspers came from Paul Wawrzyniak (Forest Hills, NY) at number five singles, 4-6, 7-5, 7-6.

The women, who entered the tournament as co-number 1 seed, had coasted into Sunday’s final with a 7-0 win over Fairfield and a 4-0 win over Niagara but dropped a 5-2 decision to two-time defending conference champion Loyola.  The Lady J’s lost the doubles point after dropping the second doubles match and defaulting third doubles only one game into the match when sophomore Daisy Hamburg (Jackson, MS) injured her ankle and was taken to the hospital by ambulance for x-rays.  She would return to the courts later in the afternoon after the x-rays found no fracture.

Trailing 1-0, the Jaspers made things interesting in singles as freshman Melissa Sunga (Bergenfield, NJ) was first off the court with a convincing win at number three singles.  Loyola won at fifth and sixth singles, 6-3, 7-6 (3) and 7-6 (6), 6-4, respectively, to take a 3-1 lead, but first, second, and fourth singles all went to a decisive third set.  Loyola would clinch the match by winning fourth singles before splitting the top two singles.

Both teams wrap-up their seasons at the Metropolitan Collegiate Tennis Conference Championships this weekend at the U.S. Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows.  With no further dual match play, the men finish the year 15-4 and the women finish with a team record 13 wins and only four losses.

Dear John:

     We did NOT pass the Income Tax...a rump session of some Senators with the collusion of Wooden-headed Wilson foisted the 16th amendment upon us and, liking power as much as the next man, no Supreme Court has had the guts to declare their actions unconstitutional. A perusal of "FDR, My exploited father-in-law" by Col. Curt Dahl, FDR's former son-in-law (whom Aunt Elly could not stand) would give you more insight into the situation in the early 1900s. God Bless.

Signed, R

[JR: While the issue of the legitimacy is in doubt in my mind, the general public goes along. I think every-right thinking person should be screaming about the intrusiveness, ineffectiveness, and unfairness. I disagree with W that 30% is a top rate number. The dead old white men made one mistake it is not “no taxation without representation” but “no taxation”. In their defense, they did make an income tax unconstitutional, but we citizens did stupidly allowed they to slip one by us.]

Hi John,

I'm one of the Jottings recipients who likes your socio-economic-politico offerings at the beginning  of each week, and I tend to agree with you more often than not.  But, this week I think you're on the wrong side of the argument.  The Gold standard was an inappropriate measure of the value of the dollar and President Roosevelt (I believe) was right to get rid of it.

Gold is a metal dug out of the ground and its value should be determined by supply and demand.  That it was always valued highly does not necessarily mean that the dollar should have its value determined by the level of supply and demand for gold.

I believe the price of gold when the standard was ended was around $35 per ounce.  Once the standard was broken, the price of gold soared until it hit over $400 per ounce.  Yet, recently, the price spent many years at around $350 per ounce.  During this period I read a few articles claiming that a de facto gold standard was back.  In the past year, however, the price has come down even more, so that today gold is worth around $265 per ounce.  If there had been on a gold standard during the 90's the value of the dollar would have declined even as productivity increased and the US economy boomed .

The demand for gold is not an accurate measure of the demand for all the items that the dollar can now buy.  Until this century there were very few things that could be bought that were not commodities and gold was the most valuable commodity, so the standard made some sense then.  It makes none now.

On a related topic, have you considered getting someone to sponsor/advertise Jottings?  I realize you didn't start Jottings to get rich, but I know that you definitely spend a lot of time compiling all this and you should get some compensation for your efforts.  E-mail advertising is now the darling of the "new media" world.  You have 1000 subscribers getting your weekly e-mail, each of these subscribers is a college graduate.  I'm sure if we all put our heads together we could come up with some likely candidates for sponsoring Jasper Jottings.

You're not going to become a dot com millionaire (and have to suffer the ignominy of subsequent failure), but you might get enough to be able to justify your efforts to your wife.  I know how hard that is as I've been running a small news web site ( ) for the past 4 years and everyone "loves it" other than my wife, who hates it!  Your time is valuable and I certainly would have no objection if you were getting something in exchange for it.

[JR: Gold. No, I think I am on the correct side of the argument. What is a dollar? Money serves several functions. One of these is a standard of account. So what is exactly this piece of paper that we call a dollar? Bottom line it’s zilch. By floating the dollar (i.e., removing the ability to covert paper to either gold or silver), we permitted the unaccountable and un-elected Federal Reserve to inflate the monetary base of the USA. Inflation is caused by too many dollars chasing too few goods. Nothing else! I’m an engineer (with a D in undergraduate economics but since college have read von Mises); not an economist. But, imagine building buildings, where a 1970 inch is different than a 2000 inch! It’s the same as when the dollar you saved last year buys less bread this year. Imagine the vigor of our economy if we had dollars convertible to gold. Commodity prices would be stable year over year. Of course, the US Government would not be able to print money to pay for wasteful programs. Think of inflation as a “hidden tax” on existing dollars. It really penalizes those who hold dollars here and abroad. No the dead old white men had this one exactly right. The ability of the sovereign (i.e., the king, the Congress, or the Federal Reserve) to debase the currency is a direct cause of the fall of the Roman Empire, the French Kings, and eventually the USA. Just for laughs, contemplate what happens when the Japanese decide not to exchange Toyotas for pieces of pretty worthless paper? And we though that savages were stupid for exchanging valuable stuff like gold for colored beads. We’ve got a better scam. I reference you to,,, and]

[JR: I’ve thought about advertising and sponsorship but it “felt” like I’d be betraying what I started. Any other opinions?]
