POSITRACTION: "Captain Wiggle Wings’ aka Gail Halvorsen — a good man



'Captain Wiggle Wings’ – The U.S. Pilot Who Dropped Tons of Candy for Kids in Berlin After Fighting Their Country
By Good News Network-Jul 17, 2018

*** begin quote ***

70 years ago today, a US Air Force pilot went down in history as the man who started dropping candy with miniature parachutes – because every child deserves a sweet treat, even in times of war.

*** and ***

The next day on his approach to Berlin, he rocked the aircraft and dropped some chocolate bars attached to a handmade handkerchief parachute to the children waiting below. Every day after that, the number of children increased and he made several more drops. Soon, there was a stack of mail in Base Ops addressed to “Uncle Wiggly Wings”, “The Chocolate Uncle” and “The Chocolate Flier”.

When an officer heard about it, he immediately expanded it into “Operation Little Vittles”. Other pilots participated, and when news reached the US, children all over the country sent in their own candy to help out. Soon, major candy manufacturers joined in.

In the end, over twenty three tons of candy were dropped on Berlin during the airlift that kept that blockaded city alive and the operation became a major propaganda success.

*** end quote ***

What a “heroic” effort by one man.

Who knows how many children were “touched” by his generosity or the future efforts?

Little children are the casualties of war!

COMMENT: Apoldo, Lou (MC1963) sees a silver lining in the endnote


The Endnote story describing how Promiscuity is spreading the untreatable STI disease that makes women infertile fails to note the positive aspect of this phenomenon, which is that it eventually could wipe out Promiscuity.

[JR: It could also be the end on humanity. Wiped out by humans’ inability to curb their lust.]

JOBIT: Donnelly, Thomas Patrick [MC1963 RIP] 2018-Jun-19 by Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)




DONNELLY—Thomas Patrick. Age 82, died on June 19th, 2018, in Charlottesville, VA.

Son of the late Thomas and Margaret Donnelly, he leaves behind his adored wife, Joan; his sons Thomas, Keith, and Brian; six grandchildren; and his brother, Bill. He was preceded in death by his sister Joan.

Tom was a founding partner of Condon, O'Meara, McGinty & Donnelly, an accounting firm dedicated to serving many of the country's most respected foundations, public charities, and non-profit organizations. Prior to this, Tom was a senior partner at Pannell, Kerr, Forster in Manhattan.

He served with pride in the United States Army as a Combat Engineer, and graduated Manhattan College on the GI Bill.

But above all, Tom was a family man, ever willing to sacrifice professional gain to be a constant presence in the lives of his wife and children, and a connection point to his larger Irish family in the States and abroad.

A Memorial Mass will be held on July 28th at 11am at St. Thomas Aquinas University Parish, in Charlottesville, VA. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions be made to the Manhattan College Scholarship Fund in the name of Thomas P. Donnelly: giving@manhattan.edu.

JOBIT: Kincaid, Andrew Bruce [MC1965 RIP] 2018-Jun-27



Andrew Bruce Kincaid
December 15, 1940 - June 27, 2018
Resident of Pleasanton

Andy Kincaid died after a valiant 5-year fight against multiple myeloma. He is survived by his loving wife Madeleine Kincaid and cherished son Andrew James Kincaid.

Andy was born and grew up in Flushing, NY where as a teenager, he met his future wife Maddie at the Purity Bakery where they both worked.

In 1964, shortly before completing his undergraduate degree at Manhattan College, Andy and Maddie were married at St. Andrews Catholic Church. The following year the young couple became a young family when they had their son Andrew!

With Andy's burgeoning career at Xerox Corporation, the family moved back and forth from New York to Texas two times. Their last move was to California. He commuted from here in Pleasanton, CA across the bay until 1999 when after 32 loyal years of employment, he retired from Xerox.

In retirement, Andy enjoyed his longtime love of fitness. He could be found riding his bike, leading hikes in the East Bay or running yet another marathon! He indulged in spirited conversations, reading current events and coffee with friends. Each evening, he looked forward to grilling meats and fish that Maddie prepared, all of which seemed to be his favorite! The two of them lovingly spent many hours in their beautiful garden, the bounty of which they shared with friends and family.

He also participated in local politics and was especially great at canvassing given his high level of fitness.
Even in serious discussions, Andy would add laughter and levity. With his broad perspective and quick wit, he was never far from a big laugh or rueful smile. Also, notably, Andy was extremely social and found something interesting in most anyone. He could connect and relate on many levels. Most of all, he would often help a shy or awkward person feel comfortable and welcome.

What was clear is that Andy participated to the fullest in all parts of his life and above all loved and was devoted to Maddie and Andrew.

Services for Andy will be held Saturday, July 28th with Visitation at 11:30 and a Memorial Service at 12:30 at Graham-Hitch Mortuary, 4167 First Street, Pleasanton CA 94566.

JOBIT: Sherlock, John Patrick [MC1951 RIP] 2018-Jul-24



John Patrick Sherlock
1927 - 2018

SHERLOCK - John Patrick, Jr., 91, died peacefully at his St. James, NY home in the loving arms of his wife of nearly 63 years, Roberta Jean (Boccafola), on Tuesday, July 24th.

Born April 26, 1927, in Astoria, Queens, to parents John and Anita, Jack was a scholar at Bishop Loughlin High School where he was a championship track runner. From 1945-1947, he was in the army during WWII before continuing his academic and athletic careers at Manhattan College, later earning post-graduate degrees from both NYU and St. John's University.

Jack was an accomplished and respected English teacher at Half Hollow Hills East High School for 33 years, and Adjunct Professor of English at SUNY Farmingdale and Nassau Community College for 29, and then 14 years, respectively. He taught over five thousand students from 1957-2004 and took immense pleasure and pride in his role as a teacher of literature and writing.

In addition to being a lover of language, Jack was an avid fisherman, naming each of his cherished fishing boats, "Happy Jack," as that was his great joy. His passion for English and fishing were surpassed only by his love for his family.

Jack is survived by his wife and seven children, John P. III (Elizabeth), Ellen Marie, Kevin James (Randy), Robert Francis (Pamela), Richard Andrew (Anja), Christopher Michael (Linda), and Elizabeth Anne O'Shea (John). Jack also leaves behind his nineteen beloved grandchildren and his much-anticipated first great-grandchild, expected to arrive in December, 2018.

JOBIT: Berry, Robert Emanuel Sr. [MC???? RIP] 2018-Jul-23



Robert Emanuel Berry Sr.
July 4, 1928 - July 23, 2018
Los Altos Hills

Born on the 4th of July in Atlantic City, N.J., Robert Emanuel Berry Sr. went peacefully to God on July 23, 2018 at the age of 90.

He lived an adventuresome life full of wonder and curiosity for the world, and while known for his remarkable career, Bob always kept his faith and family as his compass.

Predeceased by his loving wife of 61 years, Dorothy, and his siblings; Marguerite Prost (Marcel), Charles (Martha), Joseph (Carol) and William Berry.

Bob leaves behind his devoted son, Robert E. Berry Jr., his daughter-in-law, Sandra Pollano Berry, his four grandchildren; Renee (Matthew Boitano), Robert Leo (Megan), Andrea, Valentina, and his three great grandchildren; Jude and Reese Boitano, and Pippa Berry.

He received his Bachelors of Science from Manhattan College and his Masters in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

Bob served as Lieutenant in the United States Navy before his work as a pioneer in the aerospace industry.

Laying the groundwork for today's modern communications, Robert's vision for the future of satellite systems resulted in the development of innovations that have helped people all over the world.

He served on the Space Systems Technology Advisory Committee for NASA, the U.S. Department of Transportation's Commercial Space Transportation Advisory Committee and was appointed as the Deputy Director of Defense Research and Engineering under President Gerald Ford.

From 1977-1990, Bob was the general manager of Ford Aerospace's Space Systems Division (SSD). In 1999 he was named president of Space Systems Loral (SSL), and later became chairman. He served as SVP of Loral Space & Communications until his retirement at the age of 80 in 2008.

He led SSL through meteorological satellite projects for defense, civil and commercial applications and played an important part in what is today's commercial satellite industry.

A resident of Los Altos Hills since 1978, Bob and his wife Dorothy also lived in London, England, Margate, N.J., Media, PA, Atherton, Laguna Beach and La Jolla, CA.

Together, they enjoyed traveling and learning about cultures and traditions from people all over the world, but mostly appreciated being home while graciously and creatively entertaining family and friends.

Bob, or "Bibo" as he was affectionately known by family, was an extraordinary wise, earnest, amicable, compassionate gentleman. His loving humor, humility and patient presence will be greatly missed.
In Lieu of flowers, the family request donations be made in his name to Immaculate Heart Monastery, 28210 Natoma Rd., Los Altos Hills, CA 94022

A Rosary will be held on the evening of Thursday, August 2nd at 7:00 P.M., and a Memorial Mass on the morning of August 3rd at 11:00 A.M., both at St. Nicholas Catholic Church (743 Lincoln Ave., Los Altos, Ca. 94022)

ENDNOTE: The "Democratic-Socialist" Deception —



Episode 166: The "Democratic-Socialist" Deception
The Brion McClanahan Show
Jul 3, 8:00 am (33:18)

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's victory in a New York Democratic primary has made her the recent media darling of the Left. It has also brought the term "democratic-socialist" to the fore. She can't define it. The media can't define it. Stupidity runs in packs. So I define it for you and explain why it is nothing more than communism dressed up to be "reasonable." You won't want to miss this episode.

# - # - #

A “democratic-socialist” is nothing more than a communist in sheep’s clothing.

When will “We, The Sheeple” wake up?
