Friends don't let friends drive drunk. by Bill Fink 2013 Redux 2013 is now ovel and once again as I review the notable events of the past year, some seem like yesterday and some cause me to think, was that this year? As I review various web sites to see what "rates" in their opinion as notable, my comment is often Huh. As an example in March, Canada was the first country to withdraw from the U.N. convention to combat desertification. Not desertification, like not having pie or ice cream but stopping areas of the world from turning to desert. Canadians have a lot of water or ice, why would they care. I'm going to jump around a little month wise, so bear with me. In April, "Big" happened in Boston as the terrorist brothers Tsarnaev exploded two bombs at the marathon killing three innocents and wounding 264. Older brother Tamerlan has gone to meet his 72 virgins courtesy of the Boston Police and younger brother Dzhokar has yet to stand trial. I'm anxiously awaiting his defense strategy and maybe he'll meet the 72 as well, courtesy of "Twelve Angry Men" and/or women. In February North Korea set off an underground nuclear test and of course there were additional sanctions placed against them. "Ooooh you're scaring me," says Kim Jong Un, their people are already eating bark and grass for God's sake. Also in February, Pope Benedict XVI resigned. Hasn't been done in almost 600 years in the Catholic Church. I think it's refreshing. Old guy was tired and thinking maybe "I'm getting a little old for the gig," retires on top and makes room for the new guy. The new guy Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio become Pope Francis in March and is the first Jesuit, first from the Americas and first from the southern hemisphere. As Popes go he seems like a pretty young guy so he should be around awhile. The Ravens won the Super Bowl and Alabama won the National Championship in Football. Louisville won the men's and UConn the women's NCAA basketball championships. Orb won the 139th running, of the Kentucky Derby and Robert Fletcher won the World Croquet Championship. In January an al Qaeda affiliate in Algeria took over 800 hostages? Thirty-nine people were killed in the release attempt. If WWlII isn't going on I don't know what you'd call it. American scientists use a 3D printer to create a living, lab grown ear in February. In May, Nature Magazine reports the creation of human embryonic stem cells by cloning. I think the cloning guys are a little behind the curve on this one if they're already making ears on a copying machine. A little toner, colored ink, hit the green button and "voila", ears for cryin out loud. In May a garment factory in Bangladesh collapses and kills over 1,100 people. Monstrous tornadoes ravage OIlahoma City and other areas in the tornado belt. June is BIG new= as Edward Snowden abscmds with millions of files regarding America's surveillance programs and releases them to news organizations. He becomes a hero in his own mind but is unwilling to test the consequences of his actions in the American courts. He flees to Russia. He still has a boatload of files. The jury is still out on this one and I'm sure there's big news coming in 2014. In July, Chelsea Elizabeth aka Bradley Manning was convicted of the Espionage Act and aiding the enemy as a result of his uh her release of the largest set of classified documents ever. Manning was sentenced to 35 years at the Fort 'Leavenworth Disciplinary Barracks. These offenses may be punishable by death. Manning will be eligible for parole in eight years. George Zimmerman is found not guilty of the murder of Trayvon Martin. Also in July there were massive train wrecks in Canada, Paris and Spain. In August a train wreck occurred in India. In June, floods in India killed almost 6,000 people. In November one of the strongest typhoons on record hit the Philippines and Vietnam and killed over 6,100 and caused widespread devastation. It's amazing how we become inured to tragedy in other parts of the world. In July the Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood was overthrown and jailed by the military. Egypt is big, we spend a ton of money there and the fallout from this event will happen next year. In September al Shabaab another al Qaeda affiliate kills 62 and wounds hundreds at a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya. A gunman kills 12 in the Navy Yard shooting in Washington D.C. before being killed by police. I'd really like to report the celebrity gossip of 2013 but there is so much of it that seems to happen on an hourly basis and to tell you the truth I'm not sure I even know ten percent of the famous names being bandied about. I'll limit my reporting to the celebrities that are reportedly going broke. They are in no particular order; Nicholas Cage, Toni Braxton,'Stephen Baldwin, Erin Moran (Joanie), Jose Conseco, Gary Busey, Dionne Warwick and Burt Reynolds. We lost giants this year. At the top of the list was Nelson Mandela. Ed Koch long time Mayor of New York, Margaret Thatcher, Hugo Chavez, politicians, Jean Stapleton, Esther Williams, James Gandoifini, Eileen Brennan, Karen Black, Julie Harris, Marcia Wallace, Paul Walker and Peter O'Toole actors, Lou Reed, Van Cliburn, Richie Havens, George Jones, Patti Page, Eydie Gorm, Ray Price, musicians, Roger Ebert critic, Jonathan Winters comedian, Emile Griffith, Tommy Morrison, Ken Norton boxers, Elmore Leonard and Tom Clancy novelists, David Frost journalist, Scott Carpenter astronaut, Walt Bellamy and Bill Sharman basketball players, Mikhail Kalashnikov an inventor who's had impact on millions on the battlefield. And to close 2013, a couple of friends and I were waxing philosophic one evening and discussed what we wanted people to say as we lay in our caskets among our friends families and congregations. Jimmy said that he wanted people to say "what a devoted husband and father he was." Clark said he would like them to say, "What a great spiritual leader, teacher and servant of God he was." I on the other hand want them to say "Look he's still moving." As I close my fourth year writing this column in all its various forms, I would like to wish you all health and happiness in '14. All my best to you and yours. I Hear Ye! Hear Ye! A big steak dinner is coming to the Legion on Friday, January 17. The beneficiary of the proceeds will be the Julian Medical Clinic.
