Sheldon Adelson
Good riddance.
Jez, blew a 1/4 bil on 2020
Filings show that Adelson and his wife gave a record-setting $218 million to Republicans and conservative groups during the 2020 election cycle.

Not that we didn't have enough reasons to hate McCarthy
House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy: “Sheldon ....He was freedom’s greatest friend."

Harold Bornstein

(Trump doc)
this guy

I mean...trump is still alive, so healthier that this guy

Interesting tidbit, but not surprising Bornstein confessed in an interview that it was actually then-candidate Trump who wrote his hyperbolic doctor’s report in 2015.

“He dictated that whole letter. I didn’t write that letter,” Bornstein told CNN. “I just made it up as I went along.”

Syl’s death bums me out


He never got the credit cause he was overshadowed by Johnny Thunders on guitar and David Johansen... but you wouldn’t have had the Dolls without him.. and because of the Dolls important place who knows what else wouldn’t have followed

It’s well known that Malcolm Mclaren started out in music mismanaging the Dolls on their last legs.. they were his model for the Sex Pistols..

The mind reels at what might not have happened


Of course partly I feel we are spoon fed the official story by the “winners”...see Legs McNeil’s book “Please Kill Me”...

But if it hadn’t happened like the book describes it would of all had been different

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=3855664134487533&id=100001319541894


The official story something like this

VU and Nico —>. Iggy and Stooges / MC5 —> NY Dolls —> Patti Smith —> Ramones —> Sex Pistols —> dozens of bands and acts including Joy Division/The Smiths/Buzzcocks/Nipple Erectors(Shane MacGowan)/The Clash/The Fall/ Pretenders/The Raincoats—> Nirvana
