We lost these important celebrities during September, 2005: Simon Wiesenthal, Nazi hunter, died September 20 at the age of 96. William H. Rehnquist, chief justice of the US supreme court, died September 3 at the age of 80. Bob Denver, actor best known as Gilligan, died September 2 at the age of 70.
Unrelated??? I think not!!!
Simon Wiesenthal hunted Nazis, mainly Gestapo and SS-type Nazis. Segue to the "SS" Minnow...Gilligan's boat. Rehnquist was the Conservative "Anchor" of the Supreme Court. He actually said in 1985: "I felt that at the time I came on the court, the boat was kind of keeling over in one direction," he said. "Interpreting my oath as I saw it, I felt that my job was, where those sort of situations arose, to kind of lean the other way."
Therefore, all three of these celebrity deaths ARE RELATED. Case Closed.
I find ways to enjoy life as much as I can. Also, life's too short to treat people poorly.
I'm into long runs in the park, consuming salt, popping blisters,
eating roadkill & tree bark, and burying whiners in shallow, unmarked
graves. I also enjoy designing trail race courses that would make the
Marquis de Sade blush.
A fun time for me would include banging muddy shoes together, setting
broken bones with a machinist's vise, and duct-taping-down any part of my
body that is bleeding or just flopping-about uselessly.
What helps me to be an active trailrunner and grandpa?
1) Daily sponge baths with bovine stem cells;
2) Copious amounts of delicious & nutritious homebrewed beer; and
3) My secret elixir...Bicarbonate of Figleaf.
