i did not know that.

my motorola v300 (pictured here next to an amazing lunch) will terminate a phone call at the 4 hour mark.

sometimes it will also just reset itself when you open it and take 2 minutes to restart.

these are why i am in a few days getting a new phone (for free with mail in rebate, of course), with 1 year extension of my existing contract.

The Honorable Kenneth Wainstein
U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia

Dear Mr. Wainstein:

The full text of my autobiography titled "Significant Moments" can be accessed on the web at http://signmomentsone.blogspot.com. The manuscript is unusual in structure, and is written entirely in the form of quotations from published material. I spent about ten years writing the document, from the spring of 1993 to about the year 2004.

From June 1988 to October 1991 I was employed at the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, two of whose executive managers are Robert S. Strauss, Esq. and Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., Esq. Dennis M. Race, Esq. of Akin Gump designated himself the contact person regarding questions about my employment (202 887 4028).

From 1992 to 1996 I was an outpatient at the Department of Psychiatry of the George Washington University Medical Center Department of Psychiatry, which at that time was chaired by Jerry M. Wiener, M.D. (now deceased). Dr. Wiener served in 1994-1995 as President of the American Psychiatric Association. He had earlier served as President of the American Psychoanalytic Association. Coincidentally, Dr. Wiener was Jewish and a native of Texas, like Robert S. Strauss (who serves as a trustee of GW's Ronald Reagan Institute of Emergency Medicine). Robert S. Strauss has an interest in biomedical issues and endowed a chair in neurology at the University of Texas Medical School. Both Mr. Strauss and Dr. Wiener were graduates of the University of Texas.

I believe (without proof) that senior Akin Gump managers surreptitiously (and unlawfully) obtained draft versions of my autobiography which I submitted to my psychiatrists at GW. I further believe that Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., Esq. transmitted the draft versions to his close friend and confidant, former President William Jefferson Clinton or Hillary Rodham Clinton. If you recall, in the mid-1990s, Mrs. Clinton chaired an ill-fated national health care reform initiative that considered benefits for mental health treatment.

I understand that the willful fabrication of delusional symptoms to bolster a Social Security disability mental health claim would constitute a prosecutable act of criminal fraud.

Dear Sir:

This will advise the U.S. Secret Service that I have been the victim of an
ongoing fraud and racketeering conspiracy run by attorney managers of the
Washington, DC law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld: a criminal
enterprise that has involved The George Washington University Medical Center
Medical Faculty Associates, The District of Columbia Public Library (Richard
Jackson, Interim Director), as well as several high-level federal officials
including former President William Jefferson Clinton, former Treasury Secretary
Robert E. Rubin, and former Treasury General Counsel, Edward S. Knight, Esq.

The Government of the District of Columbia (Office of The Corporation Counsel)
determined (in 1997) that I formed a genuine and good-faith belief (though
unsupported by fact) that in January 1990 members of the law firm of Akin, Gump,
Strauss, Hauer & Feld (a class of persons that included Edward S. Knight, Esq.)
gained unlawful entry to my apartment (at the above address), and that the
unlawful entry was made with the knowledge and consent of the firm's management
committee (a class of persons that includes Robert S. Strauss, Esq. and Vernon
E. Jordan, Jr., Esq.). Freedman v. D.C. Dept. of Human Rights, 96-CV-961 (DCCA,
Sept. 1998), Brief of Appellee District of Columbia at 9. The firm did not
dispute the District's determination or its legal or factual relevance.

Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., Esq. is a close personal friend of former President

Secret Service Special Agent Philip C. Leadroot (now retired) is familiar with
this matter.

Enclosed is a collection of pertinent documents.

jay are Friday, October 28, 2005 12:41:00 am  

I know. The phone factored in there somewhere but that food was distracting. And the pretty floors...Well, just be glad you don't have my nasty yellow 70s lineoleum. BUT my kitchen's getting remodeled, so with any luck, this time next month that stupid yellow crap floor will be history. Who would ever pick some of this stuff on purpose???
