    Reid sets aside $22 million for a program that then funnels most of the money to a company owned by Reid's friend.

    Yep, I believe.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    I don’t think that guy needed the cash, he is already a billionaire.

    I wonder if his other ventures had a similar business cycle.

    He made his fortune in the motel business. He is the owner of Budget Suites, which are all over Las Vegas, probably other states too.

    Bigelow is a very interesting dude. He has said that the whole reason he wanted to become rich was so that he could work towards reseaching aliens, UFOs, etc.

    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Dude lives in maybe the biggest house I've ever seen with my own eyes.

    I should have been a slum lord.

    every little bit helps

    I may be small, but I'm slow.

    A veteran - whether active duty, retired, or national guard or reserve is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to, "The United States of America ", for an amount of "up to and including my life - it's an honor."

    Coast to Coast never disappoints. I miss the old shows with Art Bell.
