News, Etc.

Obituary: You may not know the name but certainly would know the voice: Dick Jones, 87, voice of Pinocchio in the 1940's Disney classic, has died.

He was only 10 years old when he got hired for the part, but, according to the AP obit, he had appeared in some 40 films.

I can remember when there were only four billionaires in the world, and they were four of only six of all time.

Those four in the early 1970s were J. Paul Getty, H.L. Hunt, Howard Hughes, and Ross Perot. The other two in history were Henry Ford and John D. Rockefeller.

Of course, inflation will have increased the "worth" of these people and the number of billionaires, their "worth" at least financially if not as human beings, but a great deal of this wealth was outright stolen from the rest of us when they as a group bought off D.C. politicians to rig the game in their favor.

No surprise most of them are GOP.
