In the 80's, a [local] radio station had a couple of DJs
who claimed the stealth fighter had landed at the Mt. Joy
airport in Mt. Joy, Iowa. This is used mainly by the weekend
warriors, and once a year it's used for an air show. The
authorities were notified after an estimated 10,000 people
came to the airport. They asked the people why they were out
there, and they were given the story about the stealth fighter.
The authorities then called the FBI, who talked to the FAA, who
called the FBI back. The two DJs got yanked off the air and
suspended for two weeks -- but not before some people at the
airport, armed with cell phones, called into the station, got
put on the air, and said that they couldn't see the thing. The
DJs replied that it was proof the technology worked.
To top it all off: the DJs said the only way that you could see
the plane was to move your head back and fourth -- like a chicken
when it walks -- and try to catch a glimpse out of the corner of
your eye. They stated that if you looked right at it, you would
never see it. This was believed and a majority of the people were
doing just this when the police arrived!
Did you hear that there was a plane wreck in England. The little
two-seater crashed right into grave yard. The rescue teams have

2.President of the largest gas company?
3.President of the New York Stock Exchange?
4.Greatest wheat speculator?
5.President of the Bank of International Settlement?
6.Great Bear of Wall Street?
These men should have been considered some of the world's
most successful men. At least they found the secret of making
money. Now more than 55 years later, do you know what has
become of these men?
1.The President of the largest steel company, Charles Schwab,
died a pauper.
2.The President of the largest gas company, Edward Hopson, is insane.
3.The President of the N.Y.S.E., Richard Whitney, was released

4.The greatest wheat speculator, Arthur Cooger, died abroad, penniless.
5.The President of the Bank of International Settlement shot himself.
6.The Great Bear of Wall Street, Cosabee Rivermore, died of suicide.
The same year, 1923, the winner of the most important golf championship,
Gene Sarazan, won the U.S. Open and PGA Tournaments. Today he is still
playing golf and is solvent.
Conclusion: Stop worrying about business and start playing golf
