Yes Senor Randisi. (Apologies to Townes)

All the federales say
They could have had it any day
They only let it slip away
Out of kindness I suppose

Keep on hammerin' sidmo, eventually you'll knock 'em all down. Teach peace and stay pure, keep a good head and ...

if my posts bother licky so much he has the opportunity to prove me wrong - not by hiding behind you sycophants, bootlickers, brownnosers and toadies but by publishing - nothing less will suffice - he has solicited personal and sensitive info from strangers under the guise of authorship and at some point he needs to put up or shut-the-phuck-up - a chapter in pre-release would at least show that he is sincere about the effort, if not the success and if he thinks that he is in danger of his text being pirated by literary poachers, as he seems to think I am, he could do like his fed heroes and redact enough from his text to render it worthless and yet still show that he has made progress toward his stated goal - otherwise he is a fraud - the question is how long is too long to perpetuate a project and keep it from becoming a hoax - many people would think all these years would be sufficient, and if not then how long is enough and how long is too long?

if licky is not a fraud than he should publish - i'm so happy now that I never felt empowered to tell him what I know - he takes that reticence to mean that I know nothing, but I aint no sgt. Shultz - there are two cohorts that I have been unable to locate after these decades apart, and without their explicit approval and permission it would be unethical for me to say anything about the incident - licky himself alludes to this when he writes about plane veterans having families and careers to consider before releasing details that, while perhaps outside the bounds of statutes of limitation, details that could lead to embarrassment for others - but he instead chastises those like myself who choose to hold back - phuck him - he's a greedy, self-centered and selfish jerk so in love with himself that the normal rules of behavior are not applicable - or at least he would like it to be so

At the very least an excerpt seems in order at this time.

Much easier said than done, as he is finding out.

Why don't you use a couple of aliases and give Licky yer story? I don't
see how that would diminish the weight or importance. In fact, I would be
surprised if Licky used anybody's real name unless they were deceased, but
I'm no lawyer, thank god.

Reilly- the answer is that I see no reason to - there's nothing in it for me, and if it is advantageous to licky then he should address my concerns directly, instead of dissing me in a misguided attempt to discredit me - if he's not a fed or worse, how are we to know? if he thinks I don't know anything about the writing process in particular and journalism in general then he is simply mistaken - not evil, just plain wrong - I've worked on many projects not unlike this one he's doing, and his approach is uniquely unprofessional - and no matter what you or he may think, that is not my fault . . . or chainsaw's or anyone else's - licky's screwing this up because he's screwing it up, not anyone else - publish now and do a sequel if you get more data licky, but quit yanking your pud and git 'er done.

this thread is approaching its second millennium - isn't that long enough? and in little more than a year it will be multi-decadal - will that be enough?

I seem to maybe have broken thru the pack ice built up around this plane wreck of a thread.

Sidmo, I'm not one to retract with no good reason.

But I will apologize for my brief rant.

I have to watch outbursts of temper because of heart issues (blood pressure, COPD, just being excitable in the way mice are in general). And I seem to have just broken my commitment not to be snide in my posts here, at the same time.

It is good that you've called out the OP, and I am certainly no licker of boots, butts, or behinds. I'm not doing so now.

A man who does not produce in a timely manner is suspect. The nature of the internet is still being discovered by slow learners and failed Luddites like me.

Stupid is as stupid does. Likewise, foot-draggers are only capable of being judged as such when they perform in that manner, and Lickey fits the shoe, to use a reversal of the common metaphor.

Get off yer ass, LICKEY LOUSE.

We need to see your true colors.

Are you whom/what you say or ARE YOU A FED? I would not put it past the gangsters of law to pull shiv like this.

Here's to the FMAF! Raise the mescal bottle and kiss the worm!
Making fat cats squirm is how The Flames of Campo Quatro burn!
I know the way to San Jose, FWIW.

Fool, The Fool, or Fools may refer to: Foolishness, the quality of having poor judgment or little intelligence. A jester, a clown, a harlequin, a buffoon.

Fools come in various shades of colour, Sidmo: which one are you?
Colourful? You do not even come close.


Mouse: On the wrong track. He is not FED, FEDS were too stupid.

Or is it a selfie, Jay? I'm having a fed-up day, myself.

It is a selfie or I want to be Me as in MeMe.

It is book of Human Behavior at it's best. As for Lickies responsibilities: children? girlfriend? wife? friends? eating? Chuck everything aside and just write a short story.

I am FED up too. Failure to communicate for one; writing helps to the right people or is that to the write people.

I can dig it mouse - no apology needed, lets just get some boots up lickys butt for his own good - sometimes I feel sorry for the guy - by now he's probably overwhelmed with the scope of it all, - as we all must admit, he had to work hard to get all that stuff compiled- then I come to my senses and remember that he is sitting on a valuable trove of interesting info that he can ride to glory and fame - but but if you're trying to serve a ten course meal you still have to get it on the table before bedtime, and if licky was a chef he would have been fired long ago - if only he'd just set a deadline and stick to it, but therein lies the bane of self-publishing - he must not need the money from the book and that's a shame for him professionally and artistically - what if we all sent him like 5 bucks or maybe ten, as an advance on our autographed first editions? Or more - how much licky?

Not that I'm calling your bluff or anything like that, dood, but c'mon licky - you should be flattered that anyone even notices you at this point

I mean, you started this stupid thread almost 9 yrs ago, and managed to get a lot of folks to respond and post lotsa posts on their own time and dime and then you just fade the phuck out - why shouldn't we all feel disappointed, letdown, shortchanged and cheated? We wait, and wait, and wait - and once in a while someone is [nice/nave/stupid] enough to tell a story or even a secret, and then licky probably begins some private chat with him and maybe gets more dope for the book about dope and the more he gets the harder it is to complete so poor licky gets into this catch-22 death spiral from which he might never emerge, at least not with a publishable manuscript

Licky

My rant was not against you; FED up with PAIN from other sources.

I rather have someone that gets it right the first time around, no mistakes. Sacrifice is a better word for your time when you have this and other responsibilities at the same time.

Sidmo is just stalking you but you know that, he doesn't. Carry on, looking forward when both are done.
