"TC...You were right, and we all lost something...but who knows what. Today’s T is not the T it was by a long shot, and that might not be a bad thing either. The R&D end of it that raised us...that’s never coming back. This also might…"

After All

        Bell Labortories out grew NYC’s ability to further adapt to the ever expanding R&D requirements of Telephone. I don’t have the history memorized, and I feel a bit guilty for not. I have read a few books about “T”, the symbol that Wall Street used to transmit the name of the company insiders called “Ma Bell” over the ticker tape fully described as American Telephone and Telegraph. 

        Edison’s laboratory was much closer to NYC than AT&T would locate, also on my…

      We have Surf Station nearby. I’ve been working the coast for more than twice as long as these kids have been alive. I’ve never been an employee of the Federal Government, but would have been if not for kidney disease. 

       So I see myself in these kids who are doing what I would have done, had my plans not been altered by Dr. Ma at seventeen. The doc saved my life and put me on the road less traveled. “Wait and see”, he said, after cutting me up and putting me back together.…

     I’m winding down. I used to be out of the house by now. I studied the landscape...flat coast, a string of Small towns and cites between the Manasquan River and Sandy Hook. I was a bit player in many productions over five decades up and down that bit of coast. 

      It was not my show to get on the road. I was, as I said, just a bit player. I played Bromden opposite my father’s MacMurphy, until I got the lead. Nicholson grew up there, between Asbury Park and…

     I call this life I lead the criminal protection program. I’ve opposed the elite and official publicly since paraquat...say 1977. I was happily breaking the law with the support of my elders until paraquat...even Rockefeller drug laws failed to deter me. 

     Even Before Reagan iced that cake, the MIC and I have gone round and round . Who,was I to be all up in their face...with no bank and no brains that they could discover? 

      At the end of 1978 the dark side of the…
