LONG AGO, PEOPLE WERE THE UNIFYING STRENGTH--THE STEEL AND BOLTS--THAT KEPT BUSINESSES SOLID.

TODAY, KATV-CHANNEL SEVEN- NO LONGER NEEDS PINE BLUFF TO BE LICENSED IN THE STATE OF ARKANSAS. TODAY, THERE IS NO LONGER ANY REMINDER THAT THE STUDIOS OF KATV (AN ABC AFFILIATE) ORIGINATED IN PINE BLUFF.

TODAY, SOME IN THIS PHOTO ARE STILL ALIVE... WHILE OTHERS ARE, HOPEFULLY,  ENJOYING ETERNAL REST.

AFTER LIVING IN CHINA FOR YEARS, I RETURNED TO ARKANSAS . WHILE DRIVING TOWARDS REDFIELD-- ON MY WAY TO PINE BLUFF-- I WAS SHOCKED TO SEE THAT KATV'S TV TOWER...A FAMOUS LANDMARK AND THE SECOND TALLEST STRUCTURE IN THE WORLD (wikipedia), WAS NO LONGER STANDING.

LATER, I LEARNED THAT---NO LONGER NEEDED---THE TOWER HAD "CONVENIENTLY"  TOPPLED TO THE GROUND, SUPPOSEDLY BY  STRONG WINDS AND  SOME LOOSE BOLTS. 

SINCE THE EARLY SIXTIES, ROUTINE MAINTENANCE AND CLOSE SCRUTINY.... CONDUCTED BY RUDY GARRETT AND HIS TEAM OF TRAINED ENGINEERS.... HAD KEPT THE TOWER STANDING-- TALL--- LIKE CHINA'S CENTURIES-OLD GREAT WALL. FOR MORE THAN FORTY YEARS, THE FAMOUS TV TOWER HAD WITHSTOOD TORNADOS, CONSTANT HIGH WINDS, LIGHTNING STRIKES, FIRES, GROUND TREMORS, AND PROVED ITS ABILITY TO STAND, UNSHAKEN.

INTERESTING THAT THE TOWER....RECENTLY REPLACE BY THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY.... DIED CONVENIENTLY... AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME.

OLDER NOW AND WISER TO THE UNDER-HANDED WAYS OF BIG MONEY, I AM DISGUSTED TO SEE HOW THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT---LARGE CORPORATIONS--- EVEN INSURANCE COMPANIES--- CONVENIENTLY WORK TOGETHER TO LINE EACH OTHERS' POCKETS.

BUT UNLIKE MANY SCAREDY-CATS IN AMERICA, I STAY VOCAL. I DON'T KEEP MY MOUTH SHUT OR MY FINGERS-- QUIET. I WILL CONTINUE TO SHARE MY THOUGHTS AND MY ANGER EVERY WAY POSSIBLE.... HOPING OTHERS WILL JOIN ME. NOW, MORE THAN EVER BEFORE, TRUE AMERICANS MUST NOT TOPPLE , MOVE OUT OF THE WAY, OR STAY CONVENIENTLY SILENT.

I WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT HELL. I WILL STAND TALL AGAINST THE DEMOCRATS, ALL LIBERALS, GOVERNMENT TAKE-OVERS, CONSTANT MEDIA PRESSURE, AND ALL THE INJUSTICES-EVERYWHERE BECAUSE...AS A NATURAL-BORN AMERICAN CITIZEN.... I'M AS IMPORTANT AS THE OPPOSITION AND REFUSE TO BE PART OF THE SILENT MAJORITY. I WON'T STOP BEING A VOICE ABOVE THE  FRIGHTENING SILENCE; I WILL STAY SOLID/STRONG.

I WILL NEVER "FOLD" LIKE KATV'S TOWER AND BE "CONVENIENTLY" CARTED AWAY TO THE SCRAP DEALER....OR THE UNDERTAKER....OR THE BODY-PARTS FACTORY FOR RE-SALE.

YES, LIFE WAS MORE FUN IN THE "GOOD-OLD-DAYS" ....THE DAYS WHEN I VIEWED LIFE THROUGH "POLLYANNA" EYES.

OVER-TIME, I'VE PROVED MY ABILITY TO FACE MY CRITICS, MY ABUSERS, EVEN THE "DEVIL" OF ALL ENEMIES---HILLARY...WITHOUT TOPPLING!

SIMPLY,

SALLY
