"Hey Tom! Look at that guy over there! He doesn't even have a mustache!
That, right there, is how a Rotarian does it!
And then that guy didn't give me any ice cream
YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!
Son, we live in a club that has fines and those fines have to be levied by men with guts. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Tom Adams and you curse the Fine Master. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know; that Tom Adam's fines, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, *saves lives*. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that podium. You need me on that podium. We use words like service above self. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the charitable contributions that I provide, and then question the manner in which I provide it! I would rather you just said "thank you" and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a microphone and stand at the podium. Either way, I don't give a *damn* what you think you are entitled to!
See that guy over there, he cant be gone that long.
I'LL BUY THAT FOR A DOLLAR!!
I'm looking for a good 3 finger sack.......see that guy over there.
They went thata way!!
Andy: That’s the guy who stole my hat!!!
Tom: you know that’s the polar bear tourist statue, right?!?
Arranged by Chris Dyrek, January Speaker Co-ordinator, last week’s speaker was Rich Abeling. Rich completed two tours of Vietnam before embarking on a 32 year career in the aerospace industry. He retired in 2005 and pursued a passion for battleships by becoming a volunteer at the Pacific Battleship Center based in San Pedro. After an extensive competition, this group won the rights from the US Navy to maintain and exhibit the USS Iowa, the flagship of the greatest class of battleships ever built. This ship saw action in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam before being decommissioned. The ship was recommissioned in the 1980’s and outfitted with the latest technology, a fact Mr. Abeling attributes to being a significant factor in winning the Cold War. Today, the ship is opened to the public and one can experience up close and personal the ship upon which several of the defining moments of the 20th century took place. www.pacificbattleship.com/ Article courtesy of Kris Leonard. ...
